Pause Campaign

One week. No social media.

Be the change now!

Pause Campaign is a seven-day break from social media where students dive into a devotional, designed to educate them on the needs of orphans. More than that, though, Pause Campaign mobilizes students to act and make an impact—today—in the lives of waiting children.

  • Connect with God more deeply as you unplug from distractions of the day-to-day
  • Learn how you can directly influence the lives of children waiting for loving families
  • Receive a free 7-day devotional book to guide your study

Get involved today!

Step One

Sign Up

Contact to commit to leading a group through Pause Campaign, and we'll mail you a free leader kit. You don't need any special qualifications—students can lead other students!

Step Two


Gather a group of students committed to participating in the 7-day pause from social media: friends, youth group members, or peers. Tell Show Hope how many people are in your group and engage in a brief leader training with Show Hope prior to launching.

Step Three

Get Started!

Send your group off into the week of devotional study, then regroup and reflect on how you can make a difference in the lives of waiting children.
