Looking back on 2011, we have a profound sense of gratitude here at Apolis. We are grateful for the incredible global response to our brand that has inspired us to explore some ambitious new initiatives in 2012. It has also given us some independence to continue to do things a little differently. So as we reflect on this last year, we also set our sights on the next. Our 2012 Survey helps us to shape our year as we reach out to our global community.
Last year our manufacturing process took us across the globe to create the best products to equip and empower global citizens. Our initiatives were ambitious and, in the end, we are pleased to share the results of our ten artisians in India, four leather craftsman in Israel, thirty-five handloom weavers in Peru, twenty-one artisans in Bangladesh and numerous families in downtown Los Angeles. Also during this last year we reached one of our long-term goals, our first regionally branded Apolis space to present each of our advocacy projects, host advocate keynotes, collection releases and new films. As we venture into the new year, we are grateful for supporters like yourself that share our commitment to advocacy through industry.
