Together with Happy Hearts Fund, it is our mission to put a smile on the face of every child we touch and together we can accomplish great things" said Lynne Greene, Group President, The Estée Lauder Companies, Inc. / Global President, Clinique. 
 

During the Gala it was announced that United Airlines has become the official airline of Happy Hearts Fund.  Phillip Caputo, Happy Hearts Fund Executive Director, speaking about the United partnership stated, “Having a global airline partner gives Happy Hearts the opportunity of having a direct presence at our schools around the world.  United has long shown a commitment to natural disaster response by providing much needed logistical support and transporting of life-saving supplies.  Now, through this partnership, United is again leading the way by making a commitment to the sustained response of natural disasters.”
