National Step Forward for Orphans Day
The 3rd annual National Step Forward for Orphans Day is scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2015. Organized by Both Ends Believing to raise public awareness and promote change for the millions of un-parented children in the world, Both Ends Believing volunteers and supporters will step forward in their communities to give a voice to this human rights crisis.
3 Ways to get involved
On May 16 you can partner with us to raise awareness in your community and help Both Ends Believing defend every child’s right to a permanent, loving family. As we did last year, we are looking for volunteers to celebrate this 3rd anniversary with community Step Forward events and online Click Forward activities. In addition, we are also setting a goal to host events in 20 cities and raise $20,000 for the annual Step Forward campaign.
We want to empower you to create meaningful and successful events in your community to build awareness that “Children Belong in Families, not Institutions”
History of Step Forward for Orphans Day
Both Ends Believing produced STUCK, an award-winning documentary that exposed situations where heroic efforts by extraordinarily committed families were necessary to bring a few desperate children into the loving families they so richly deserved.
In 2013, STUCK hit the road and premiered in 60 communities across the country. This grassroots approach connected Both Ends Burning to universities, churches, local business and community groups in each city. Over 1,000 volunteers supported the STUCK tour and formed the basis for our national organization. We generated awareness for our cause through media appearances and feature stories both nationally and locally in 60 cities.
