The Educational Outfitters Adoption Fund

Why?
There are over 145 million orphans in the world today.  Each year many thousands are being adopted and finding families, but too many more are being passed over because they have special needs.  Placing a child with special needs into a forever family is a much harder proposition than placing a healthy child.
 
What is happening?
Educational Outfitters have recently started a partnership with Lifesong for Orphans (www.lifesongfororphans.org).  We are working to provide an efficient, effective process to financially assist families who are interested in bringing children with special needs into their families.
 
How does it work?
Through each individual store, and the corporation as  a whole, funds are being designated to the Educational Outfitters fund at Lifesong for Orphans.  The donations will be used to assist adoptive families with a matching grant to help them raise funds for their adoption.  Lifesong deals with all the disbursements, receipting, admin etc at no cost to Educational Outfitters, the fund or the families.  100% of every donation goes right where it is intended to go, there are no hidden fees or costs.
 
The Plan
We hope that as the various stores, and clients we serve, engage with this opportunity that we will assist more than 6 children each year to be placed in a forever family.
 
A bonus
The Educational Outfitters Corporate office will match every dollar raised through the individual stores, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 per calendar year!  Lets help bring some precious children into loving homes!
