Students Taking Action: Red Bus Highlights

March 29, 2012 | Posted In Get Involved | Share

Show Hope’s Red Bus Project is officially half way through the spring tour! As the orphan care project continues to gain momentum on college campuses through social media and news media, we are excited to see more and more students joining the movement to care for orphans through this amazing student initiative!

Here are some media highlights from the past week:

“As the bus pulled in at the University of Tennessee and tents began to go up, I honestly felt an excitement. I was able to travel on the bus the past week, but there was something special about seeing it happen on my college campus. First off I have to give a shout out and a huge thanks to all of the amazing people that have traveled with the bus for the past three weeks. They do an unbelievable job and make the Red Bus Project such a great experience for everyone!

It combines two of my deepest passions: orphan care and students taking action. Being able to share past experiences with peers and encourage them to get involved was such a blessing. Throughout the day there was a consistent flow of students with questions and opportunities to share. I am so thankful for not only what the Red Bus does in coming to college campuses, but for the invitation to help stop the orphan crisis. They were a light on UT’s campus. Thanks for everything RBP team!”
