Day of Hope 2016
IT'S THE SEASON OF HOPE!
We have significant impact on the lives of vulnerable children in each of the countries we partner with. America World is committed to family preservation and orphan care and thanks to our wonderful in-country partners, hundreds of children are being loved and cared for.
This is why we have hope. We not only believe that we can continue to care for vulnerable children, we expect it. Hope is not hope without expectation.
Each family who has been impacted by the gift of adoption likely has the same thought. What about the children we left behind?
The answer is continued involvement in orphan care initiatives. As we enter this season of hope we invite you to partner with us again, or perhaps for the first time.
On December 8th members of One Orphan and America World staff called America World friends and families to extend an invitation to impact the lives of children around the world. Even though our Day of Hope 2016 (12/8/16) is over, the matching gift continues through December 31, 2016 so please prayerfully consider a year-end tax-deductible gift.
Here are just a few ways your gifts will support vulnerable children:
- Support for five orphanage partnerships in Ethiopia
- Provide Ethiopia families with sponsorships through our government partnership
- Resources and Support for Orphanage partnerships in Haiti
- Resources and Support for Orphanage partnerships in China
- Support for Adoption programs in India
- And much more!
As we enter this Season of Hope we ask that you not only consider investing financially in the lives of orphans, but also investing time in prayer. Please pray for families to continue to choose adoption. Please lift up the children still waiting. And please keep our staff in prayer as we continue to fight for children around the world. International adoption becomes more difficult each year, please pray for doors to open and hearts to be moved.
We are so thankful for our dedicated families and we hope to unite with you as we speak up for vulnerable children.
If you are ready or led to start the Season of Hope now you can make tax-deductible donations by clicking this link and designating your gift as Day of Hope 2016 in the drop down menu.
