Holt International Help Needed

One of the clinics for orphans in Korea is in dire need of repairs. This clinic has saved many orphaned children's lives as the nearest hospital is over an hour away from a large orphanage in South Korea. Total improvements needed to keep this clinic open are around $150 to $160,000. Please visitn for more information.

Fundraising Event Information

In January 2010, Joseph's Hope Foundation will be showing the film, "No Greater Love," pre-release. Original release for this movie from Mt. Carmel Entertainment is scheduled for mid February 2010, but we have obtained the rights to show this as a fund raising event.

Specific dates are not yet finalized, but we should be showing this film between January 17 and January 24, 2010. 100% of ticket proceeds will go directly to Joseph's Hope Foundation and benefit at least one adopting family. We will not be using any proceeds from the fundraiser for administrative costs (all administrative matters are being managed through donated time and use of personal equipment, etc.).

Please put the above range of dates on your calendar and come and support Joseph's Hope. Tickets will be $5 in advance and $6 at the door. This may not seem like much, but every dollar raised can help give an orphaned child hope.

Time and location to be determined soon.

Foundation Purpose

Joseph's Hope Foundation was created in 2009. Named after our two Korean adopted children, Joseph Austin and Natalie Hope, the intention of this foundation is to assist prospective adoptive families with needs they encounter through this long AND expensive process. We specialize in creating fundraising opportunities for prospective adoptive families and also provide adoption grants to families in need (when funds are available).

In addition to providing the necessary financial assistance, we also provide counseling and education services to those that are trying to decide if adoption is in their future.

The fundraising arm for Joseph's Hope Foundation is the One Million Pennies Fund. Our goal is to raise enough funds to support 5 full international adoptions annually.
