Agawam, MA (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
The Orphan Foundation is pleased to announce the receipt of a major gift from The Business Source.
The Business Source book summaries are designed to provide the best business knowledge available today in a variety of reading and listening formats. The summaries can be read or listened to on a PC or Mac, or on a wide variety of mobile devices such as the iPhone, Blackberry, iPad, and Kindle. The book summary service is available via a yearly subscription.
These book summaries are a concise synopsis of newly published business books and they highlight the author’s main ideas and strategies. The summaries produced by The Business Source. They are approximately 3,500 words in length (or about 5-7 pages) and typically take about 15 minutes to read or listen to.
The Orphan Foundation is asking individuals, companies, and associations to purchase these leadership and management book summaries for themselves or for their key employees.
The hope is that all of the gifted subscriptions will be purchased and that the foundation will be able to raise the needed dollars to help more orphans get into loving homes. For every 50 subscriptions ordered, the foundation will be able to rescue 10 orphans in search of a family.
Joe DiDonato, co-founder and chairman of The Orphan Foundation, went on to say that “The orphan crisis has reached epic proportions. The number of orphans and displaced children in the world now exceeds 163 million, making this combined population the equivalent of the 7th largest nation on the planet.” He went on to say that “these same innocent children often go on to become society’s problems when they are forced to leave their institutions at 18 and expected to survive on their own.”
The foundation provides $500 grants to low and middle-income families who are willing to open their homes to a loving child, exhausted their financial resources, and can prove that they are in the final stages of adoption. The foundation is an all-volunteer group, which means that all monies raised go to the non-profit’s rescue mission.
The foundation reports that the cost of adopting is approximately $18,500 for a domestic adoption, and $25,000 to $40,000 for an international adoption. “This financial burden has created a huge barrier to solving the orphan crisis as the cost of adoption has skyrocketed out of the reach of most families,” said Dr. Tatiana DiDonato, co-founder of The Orphan Foundation. “Adoption should be free to any loving family that will open their homes to these beautiful children.” She went on to say that the act of adoption is an act of love and commitment.
