THE STORY:

Orphanos Foundation wrote -

How many meals does $2 million dollars provide for vulnerable children in 13 countries?  How many hugs and caring smiles does that same amount empower?  Every year Orphanos provides donation services to children's projects in 13 countries FREE OF CHARGE!  That means we don't take a percentage of donations from the children when we send donations to them. They get 100% of every donation given them. How do we do that for free?  This fundraiser is the answer!

What if you could get your friends and family to donate money to see you rappel off a 28 story building in Memphis?  And what if those funds help release on average about $2 million dollars a year to help feed and care for thousands of orphaned and vulnerable children?  Interested?

On April 24-25, 2015, Orphanos is partnering with Hilton Hotels and Over the Edge, a special events company that provides signature events for non-profit organizations around the world. Participants are invited to raise funds in exchange for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of going over the edge of the Hilton Memphis.  OTE has organized hundreds of these events for thousands of "edgers" and raised in excess of $20 million in the process.  It's safe.  It's fun.  It's thrilling.  And it helps feed orphans and vulnerable children.  Come on, what are you waiting for?
