Adoption Campaign Matching Grant Increased to $500,000

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.

    I’m part of the Friess Team. Really honored to express my appreciation for the caring hearts of Foster and his family. There are lots of major projects that have benefited from their generosity but I can’t think of any other initiative where 100 million people are potential beneficiaries.

    Susan and I are adoptive parents. We know what a difference adoption makes in the lives of helpless kids. We’ve seen their potential realized. Please take advantage of this challenge grant. It will help put the Both Ends burning Campaign over the top. I believe the campaign will succeed in changing the course of international adoption from free-fall to complete recovery. Millions of kids will benefit.
