Orphan Relief and Rescue has an exciting Summer opportunity and challenge for your Kids these next eight weeks!
We want to connect your kids to the children in Africa who need help going to school this Fall through our Summer Kids helping Kids Challenge. With your help, hundreds of children in both Liberia and Benin, West Africa will be able to attend school who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it. By simply collecting and donating change through the summer, your children can make a real impact in their lives.
Ready to learn more?
Orphan Relief and Rescue will be enrolling over 300 children in school this August. 250 of these children we intercepted from being sold into slavery in Benin, and part of what keeps them safe is getting, and keeping, them in school. This means that we have to get every child on our program a new school uniform, a new backpack and school supplies. We also have to pay for school tuition. This is a huge undertaking, and we cannot do it without your help!
Together we need to raise $20,000 to cover all the costs and get these kids in school.
Are you ready to make a real impact this summer? You can enter the contest by yourself, with your family, or friends. Encourage your Youth Group or soccer team to join you! All you’ll need is a box or jar to fill with change.
How to get started: As a parent or child care worker, you can download our “Children Matter” e-children’s book to share with your kids, which will help them learn more about the children Orphan Relief and Rescue will be sending to school. Then, choose your Change for Change labels to download and print by visiting our Take Action page and scrolling to the Kids section. Finally, attach your labels on your coin containers, and the collecting can begin!
The contest will run from June 15th to August 15th, 2016.
After you are finished collecting change, take your coins to a coin star or bank to have it counted and consolidated into dollars. Once you’ve completed this step, have a parent or guardian send a personal check or money order to Orphan Relief and Rescue by August 15th.
Make all checks payable to Orphan Relief and Rescue and send to:
Orphan Relief and Rescue
1416 SW 151st Street
Burien, WA 98166.
Be sure to attach a note saying your check is for the Summer Challenge Contest!
Prizes: We will be giving First, Second, and Third place prize to the child or group that raises the most money for these children. Winners will be contacted personally and announced on the Orphan Relief and Rescue website and Facebook on August 20, 2016.
Thank you in advance for helping these precious children go to school. Have a wonderful fun filled summer, and good luck!
