Join the National Foster Parent Association in celebration of National Foster Care month by taking part in Walk Me Home…to the place I belong. There are many walks taking place across the US and we ask that you support the ones in your area. For those not near a Walk we are giving you the opportunity to support Walk Me Home by participating in a Virtual Walk on May 21th, 2016 in your own home town, park, running/walking trail…wherever you choose! This National Event for foster care and adoption is designed for anyone to be a part of.
We are asking each person who registers to create their own fundraising page and invite friends and relatives to donate to it. We are asking each person to set a goal of $100 for you page. As you register you will be giving the opportunity to create or join an existing team. Proceeds from this Virtual walk will go to support the National Foster Parent Association’s efforts to support and advocate for parents and children all across the US. A portion will also be used to support the National Foster Parent Association Scholarship Fund.
To register or simply donate without registering, go to http://www.firstgiving.com/walkmehome/nfpa2016. The cost of registration is $30, and includes a Walk Me Home tee shirt to commemorate this event. Please register by May 1st, 2016 to insure you receive your t-shirt in plenty of time for the event. If you require a shirt other than sizes offered youth s,m, or adult s,m,l,xl,xxl, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your size.
Walk Me Home…to the place I belong is the signature fund-raising and awareness event for foster care in America. We know not everyone can be a foster or adoptive parent, but Walk Me Home is a great way to support the over 400,000 children in foster care and the more than 100,000 children available for adoption.
Won’t you please join us in this first Annual National Event. Remember this is a Virtual Walk that you can do anytime anyplace. We are just setting the date of May 21th in hopes of drawing National attention and thus getting more awareness of the need for more foster and adoptive parents.
