On Saturday, September 28, 2013, I am joining the Adoption Council of Canada and the Children’s Bridge Foundation at Britannia Park in Ottawa for a fun-filled event called AdoptWalk. As well as playing games, eating food and meeting with friends and families who are also touched by adoption, I'll be going to take part in a 5K walk.
AdoptWalk is about 'making connections, step by step'. It's also about raising funds to support programs that will ensure that all children and youth have a forever family and all families who are touched by adoption have the supports they need throughout their journey: information, education, resources and advocacy. I know that I can make a difference by participating in AdoptWalk.
Would you please support me with a pledge to my campaign? After you donate you will receive a confirmation email as well as an official receipt for income tax purposes.
Thank you for your support!
