Make Change for Children 2014

Last year, you made a true difference in the lives of our world’s most vulnerable children, those living without the love and protection of a forever family.

You held lemonade stand fundraisers. You ran through the streets of your home town – raising your voice, awareness and funds with every step.  On Halloween you went trick-or-treating for change. Due to those efforts, thousands more heard the plight of orphans and we raised over $120,000, with 100% of the proceeds going to the programs and services which end the suffering of children without families.

This year, our goal is to reach thousands more and raise $160,000 and once again we need your help.

Here’s how:

  • Pre-Order a Make Change for Children collection kit for your trick-or-treater or for your desk at work. Give your child the opportunity to learn what it means to help children in need. Email the number of kits you’ll need and your address to
  • Attend our Kick-Off event on September 19th!

Sponsorships and Donations are tax deductible and 100% of the funds donated go to the services and programs which end the suffering of our world’s most vulnerable children – those without the love and protection of a forever family.

Any group can contact Jennifer Mellon Peterson, our Chief Development Officer, directly with questions or to participate at or at (703) 535-8045.

Thank you for helping us make true change for our world’s most vulnerable children!
