Help children languishing in orphanages around the world by supporting Both Ends Burning, a pro-adoption campaign. Lynn and I will match up to $500,000 of donations made by December 31, 2011–an increase from the previously promised $100,000.
Our friends Craig and Kathi Juntunen lead an effort called Both Ends Burning to reduce the costs, delays, and bureaucracy of international adoptions.
According to Craig, “Our Both Ends Burning Campaign is on a mission to create a culture of adoption and transform the current process that has spiraled out of control.”
The basic human right for children to grow up in families “is denied far too often due to the current dysfunctional adoption systems,” Craig says. “The success of Both Ends Burning is measured by increasing the number of children adopted in the years ahead.”
Watch this 8 minute 25 second video clip to a new film Both Ends Burning is releasing soon that will help you understand their motivation and intentions. Craig and Kathi are also partners in the Haiti Renewal Fund, which, among other things, has given assistance to orphans. The Juntunens have themselves adopted three Haitian children.
