NFPA National Virtual Walk

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Benefiting NATIONAL FOSTER PARENT ASSOCIATION, INC.

Join the National Foster Parent Association and our other national sponsors Centene Charitable Foundation and AdoptUSkids in celebration of National Foster Care month by taking part in Walk Me Home ……to the place I belong.
There are many walks taking place across the US and we ask that you support the ones in your area. For those not near a Walk we are giving you the opportunity to support Walk Me Home by participating in a Virtual Walk on May 24th, 2014 in your own home town, park, running/walking trail ect. Where ever you choose. You don't have to walk to participate in the virtual walk. By creating a fundraising page and inviting friends to support you is another way to help. This will be a National Event for foster care and adoption that you can be a part of.
Got a group you want to participate just email bhooper@nfpaonline.org to find out how to get tee shirts for all of them.
To donate to a person or team just click on their name below.
To register and create a fundraising page click on the JOIN NOW button above and follow the steps.
After you create a page you can ask friends and family to donate to you. If you get any cash or check donations you can log on to your page and post them as an offline donation. This would need to be mailed to NFPA or paid with a credit card.
Checks can be mailed to NFPA office

Walk Me Home…to the place I belong is the signature fund-raising and awareness event for foster care in America. We know not everyone can be a foster or adoptive parent, but Walk Me Home is a great way to support the over 400,000 children in foster care and the more than 100,000 children available for adoption.
Won’t you please join us in this first Annual National Event. Remember this is a Virtual Walk that you can do anytime anyplace. We are just setting the date of May 24th in hopes of drawing National attention and thus getting more awareness of the need for more foster and adoptive parents.
