Gift Card Drive:
National Adoption Month
Get involved! Join us in spreading awareness about National Adoption Month.
The Facts about National Adoption Month:
National Adoption Month began as a week-long celebration in Massachusetts in 1976. Since then it has evolved into a month-long event! Each year, the President of the United States makes a proclamation to announce that November is National Adoption Month. This year, National Adoption DAY is celebrated November 17, 2012. This is a special day because thousands of adoptions are finalized in court rooms all across the United States. Every year this celebration grows larger as more and more states and courtrooms become involved. This November, join us in celebrating adoption!
AFTH’s “Birth Mother Gift Card Drive”
Just before the holiday season, AFTH identifies several birthmothers, parenting other children at home, as being in need of extra financial assistance. Last year we were able to help 37 families. This year, with the help of adoption friendly businesses, we hope to help even more families! Please keep this opportunity in mind for your charitable giving in 2012. AFTH will graciously be accepting Target, Acme, Walmart, and Visa gift cards ranging from $25-$200. Without these gift card donations, many of the birthmothers would not be able to provide a special meal, warm clothes, and a few presents for their children during the holiday season. If you or your company would like to make a monetary or gift card donation please click on the Gift Card Drive link or contact AlexandraP@afth.org.
AFTH’s “Paper Heart Project”
Local small business will be showing their support for National Adoption Month and Adoptions From The Heart by joining in our Paper Heart Project this November. For $1 donation per heart, paper hearts will be displayed to spread adoption awareness. You can join the project by visiting these local businesses, any of our office locations, or by making a donation online. All proceeds raised by the Paper Heart Project will go to AFTH to support its beneficiaries, including women choosing to place their child for adoption, in their education, counseling, medical care and guidance, living essentials, or other special needs. If your business would like to participate in the Paper Heart Project (Nov. 1-30th) please click on the Paper Heart Project invite or contact AlexandraP@afth.org by October 26th .
