BENEFITING: ROLLSTONE FOUNDATION INC
North Country Road Warriors Janet, Sarah, Linda and Karole will be RUNNING FOR ROLLSTONE in the Marine Corps Marathon in October.
The Rollstone Foundation helps save the lives of children with special needs on a worldwide basis by providing monetary grants to adoptive parents in order to offset the extraordinary high cost of adoption.
There are an estimated 143 million orphans in the world. Many of these children, particularly in third world nations, are children with special needs. They may be HIV Positive, or suffer from diseases such as Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy, are blind, or were born into extreme poverty that has taken its toll on their small bodies. These are all conditions that are treatable in the United States, but they are death sentences in their countries. For many, adoption is literally the difference between life and death.
The sad fact is that prospective parents with the means to adopt usually don’t want a Special Needs child. Prospective parents who are willing to open their hearts and homes to a Special Needs child often do not have the financial means. The cost of such an international adoption is often $25,000.00. The Rollstone Foundation helps supply the means by awarding monetary grants, allowing the new parents to rescue the child from almost certain death, and move them into a loving adoptive home.
Every dollar taken in by Rollstone is almost immediately turned around and dispersed in the form of grants to qualified prospective parents so that the rescue of a child can be accomplished as soon as possible. Rollstone has no offices…no paid staff or board members…no Foundation equipment to purchase or maintain…and therefore no reason to maintain an operating account.
The Rollstone Foundation is a registered 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit charitable organization (IRS ID#: 26-2228883), and contributions are tax-deductible.
