Since the founding of Project HOPEFUL, we have known many children with HIV and AIDS.  Some of them have died before a family has found them.  However, we have never known a child, no matter how ill, to die in their birth country once they know that a family is coming.  The HOPE that they have is such a powerful force in their hearts that they will beat incredible odds waiting for their family to come for them. Project HOPEFUL has had the wonderful privilege of seeing 20 children matched with families just since this past April!

Project HOPEFUL’s Waiting Kids page currently includes almost 200 children who need the HOPE of knowing that a family is coming for them.  If we could reach just four families in each state with our message of HOPE and TRUTH  imagine the impact on this list alone!

Today, we’d like to challenge you to pick just one of those waiting children and advocate for them using your blog, Facebook and Twitter.  Scroll through the Waiting Kids pages and find a story that you want to share.  When you click on the child/ren’s name, choose the option along the top of the page for sharing it.  Then come back here and tell us who you advocated for.  We will choose an entry (via random.org) at 11am Central Time Friday morning (June 10th).

You can be a part of bringing HOPE to a child with this simple act of love!

Vote for Project HOPEFUL on June11th in the Toyota 100 Cars for Good program and help us educate more families and individuals so they can advocate for and adopt these wonderful waiting children.
