When you sponsor a school uniform, you support 3 things: a uniform for a child, job creation in impoverished communities, and orphan care!

via Crowdrise 3 years ago

BENEFITING: The Global Orphan Project, Inc

EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2012

THE STORY:

Beginning January 28th, Barrett Keene began walking the 3,475 miles between Miami and San Francisco with hopes of speaking to tens of thousands of people to raise awareness about the realities 145 million orphaned and abandoned children face.

The route travels through Miami, Tampa, Atlanta, Nashville, St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, and San Francisco.

To learn more about the walk visit http://gowalkamerica.org/.

Sposored by LegacyChamp.com, Go Walk America is benifitting The Global Orphan Project (GO Project), in hopes of individuals and organizations to sponsor school uniforms ($20 each) for orphans and other children living in rags. These children live in communities where children are not allowed to attend school unless they have a uniform. This harsh rule is in place so children will not come in rags or less. It is a fact of life and is often a reason why the poorest children don’t receive even a primary education. Through GO Threads, sewing centers are being started to create jobs and spur economic development in some of the most impoverished communities in the world. Your donation is tax deductible.                                                                            

In addition to education, economic development in these communities is paramount in the fight for orphaned and abandoned children worldwide. If 25,000 school uniforms are purchased, dozens of adults in some of the most impoverished communities in the world will have jobs at the GO Threads sewing centers. Additionally, 100% of the profit goes to offering shelter, food, education, and support for orphans in 15 countries around the world. When you (ONE) give to sponsor a school uniform for a child, you actually support THREE things: a uniform is provided to a child, jobs for adults in these impoverished communities are created, and caring for orphans in 15 countries! Watch the video to see how this works!
