This month, Show Hope is highlighting one such program – their advocacy events
WHAT IS A SHOW HOPE ADVOCATE?
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. Advocates are doing amazing things such as donating their birthdays, running marathons, hosting garage sales, collecting change, hosting a clothing swap and so much more…all to restore the hope of a family to waiting children around the world. Above all, the Show Hope advocate is a voice for the fatherless.
Do you want to become an advocate? This month Show Hope is asking advocates to donate their birthday. In lieu of presents, advocates will ask their party guests to bring a monetary donation or needed items for one of Show Hope’s Special Care Centers. This time can also as be used to share about the plight of orphans and the work of Show Hope.
