The Global Orphan Project Invites Those with a Heart for Orphans to Their BIG Event, September 25th

KANSAS CITY, Mo., (christiansunite.com) -- The Global Orphan Project (GO Project) invites you to our annual BIG Event! Tickets go on sale July 29th. This year's BIG Event will be Saturday, September 25th at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Missouri. The GO Project, based in Kansas City, partners with local leaders in thirteen countries to care for more than 3,500 orphaned and abandoned children, including more than 2,400 in Haiti.

The Global Orphan Project started the annual BIG Event less than five years ago to celebrate the positive difference being made around the world. What began as a small gathering in their founders' back yard has turned into Kansas City's most anticipated evening for orphans. Last year more than 600 attended The BIG Event, and it's expected to be even bigger this year! In the last six months, more than 300 people have gone with the GO Project to help children in Haiti. 60 Minutes highlighted The Global Orphan Project's efforts this March and again in July with their segment, Lost Children of Haiti. The fall's BIG Event will celebrate heroic efforts of key people restoring dignity to orphaned and abandoned children in Haiti and around the world.

Tickets are available for purchase at www.theglobalorphanproject.org and are expected to sell out. Don't miss the Early Bird Special: save $10 by purchasing a ticket before August 31st.

In 2003 Mike and Beth Fox, founders of The Global Orphan Project, started a 501(c)(3) nonprofit to play a small role in the lives of children. They dreamed that one day, maybe, they could fund ten homes. Their vision exploded into what is now The Global Orphan Project. The Global Orphan Project plants children's villages around the world where local churches -- often through widows and other single women -- care for orphaned and abandoned children in their communities. They just need some help to do it.

GO Project engages groups here to provide that help. Families, schools, businesses, and churches give, go, and virally spread what has become a grassroots movement to care for orphans. They're sponsoring children's homes, schools, and even entire villages impacting several hundred kids -- and asking others to do the same.

Select donors cover the ministry's overhead, enabling 100% of every dollar given to the care of children go to the care of children. To learn more about The Global Orphan Project, visit www.theglobalorphanproject.org.
