Gift of Adoption’s (GOA) mission is to fill the void that separates child from family by providing the final funds needed to complete the adoptions of vulnerable children. This year, GOA hopes to fund an additional adoption by participating in #GivingTuesday—a worldwide movement to celebrate giving and inspire personal philanthropy during the holiday season.
To celebrate National Adoption Awareness month and Gift of Adoption’s 20th Anniversary, GOA volunteers and benefactors around the country have been organizing short, but meaningful, 1-mile walks emblematic of the final mile Gift of Adoption grants help families with on their adoption journey. 30 days, 30 walks, 30 kids. The slogan is: Where we finish, a family starts.
The “mile” slated for November 29th is a “monetary mile” in honor of #GivingTuesday—the worldwide philanthropic movement that celebrates giving and aims to inspire personal philanthropy during the holiday season. It falls after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.
What better way to show gratitude for your family, than by giving the gift of family to a parentless child? Our goal is to raise at least $5,280—a “monetary mile” to help a vulnerable child get home to a loving, permanent family. That means we need just 100 people to donate $52.80 or more to help us reach our goal!
