World Orphan Week October 1-7

I’ve had a lot of good experiences working with WOW, and I hope that you’ll consider pitching in.

 World Orphan Week (WOW) began in 2005 to raise awareness of the needs of orphaned and abandoned children around the world, and to inspire and activate volunteers to raise funds for vital programs that can support these children.

This year, volunteers all over the country are organizing fundraisers on behalf of the children of SOS Children’s Villages, from bake sales and bike-a-thons to simply collecting donations from family and friends. WOW 2007 is calling attention to the causes of child abandonment: HIV/AIDS, war and extreme poverty, as illustrated through the personal stories of children from Botswana, Lebanon, Jamaica, and Cambodia.
