Show Hope advocates are grassroots leaders who raise funds and awareness in their communities by utilizing their talents, gifts, and passions to speak up for orphans in distress. They’re donating birthdays, running marathons, and hosting garage sales…all to restore the HOPE of a family to waiting children around the world. Above all, our advocates are a voice for the fatherless.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress.” – James 1:27
Our advocate program is designed for people who feel led by God’s command in James 1:27. Through the program, we have had hundreds of people partner with us by donating the resources God has already provided. Whether it’s as simple as donating a special occasion or as strenuous as running a 100-mile ultra-marathon, each advocate project gives hope to orphans. Hope to orphans who need families; hope to orphans who need love. By raising their voice for the fatherless, our advocates rouse their friends, family, church, and community to join the movement.
Do you feel called to care for orphans in distress? If so, prayerfully consider joining our advocate program and walking with Show Hope as we restore the hope of a family to waiting children. Our advocates are all ages and come from various backgrounds. All of them, however, have one thing in common: a passion to provide love and life-giving care to the world’s most vulnerable children. If you feel called to join us, we encourage you to contemplate the resources you already have that would best equip you to take action. Do you have a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or other special occasion coming up? Donate your day! Are you especially talented at running, swimming, or bowling? Raise funds while you do what you love! Do you love to shop or bake? Host a clothing swap or bake sale! Do you have a lot of stuff that you need to get rid of? Organize a garage sale! If you’d prefer to approach it in a more traditional way, consider setting up an informational table at your church and hand out Show Hope brochures! There are so many ways you can get involved. Encourage others to join you and let’s do this together! With your help, we can transform the lives of orphans around the world.
