Let's make this thing happen. Mozilla Firefox is giving $50,000 to the charity that raises the most and I want to win it for Children's Action Network. That's a whole lot of cash money.
Check out the leaderboard here to see who's in the lead. I'm guessing it's going to be us.
Children’s Action Network uses the power of the entertainment community to increase awareness about children’s issues. We are dedicated to raising awareness of and finding adoptive homes for the more than 104,000 waiting children and improving outcomes for the more than 400,000 children in foster care. CAN's programs include:
- A Home for the Holidays—an annual special on CBS, which features musical performances and celebrities presenting inspirational stories about adoption. Thousands of children have found homes as a result of the special.
- National Adoption Day—a collective national effort to raise awareness about children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families and celebrate all families who adopt. More than 40,000 children have been adopted from foster care on National Adoption Day since 2002.
- Change a Child’s Life—a series of films that air on Fox’s Good Day LA and The Huffington Post featuring Southern California foster youth telling their own stories in their own words. The series is designed to introduce the children to a broader audience, connect them with mentors, and help them find adoptive families.
- Fostering a Future Scholarship—designed to provide children who were adopted from foster care after the age of 13 with the opportunity to pursue their post-secondary educational goals.
