When we hear the words “The POWER of ONE” they can elicit a different response in all of us. You may think of that powerful sports figure, the Fortune 500 or the President of the United States. Still others may think of Mother Theresa, Gandhi, Dalai Lama, Pope John Paul II, Beethoven, Thomas Edison, Nelson Mandela, Benjamin Franklin, Plato and a myriad of others. But, “The POWER of ONE” can be you and I helping that ONE person – making a significant difference in their life!
You and I can make a difference and join in “Giving Tuesday” which is the very simple idea of giving back for one common purpose: “to celebrate generosity and to give”. It is the coming together as individuals, communities and the world to be part of “a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity”. This coming Tuesday, December 2, 2014 is “Giving Tuesday”.
Act of Love Adoptions asks that as you reflect where you will make your final charitable contribution for the 2014 year; that you consider the substantial impact you can have on the lives of the adoption triad at Act of Love. You will be helping many, as you help ONE. You will help a beautiful child find their forever family, a birth parent that is making the greatest sacrifice of love that is need of help and an adoptive family that is saving and sacrificing to make a loving and permanent home for a child.
Please join with the world on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 and be part of the “global celebration” of giving. Please consider giving a donation to Act of Love Adoptions to support birth and adoptive families. Each donation – big or small truly makes a difference in the lives of children and families. Help Act of Love in their mission – “To Serve Children – to help build loving families who share the joy of living and loving together.” You can have a direct hand in making a difference!
Act of Love Adoptions has a non-profit, 501 (c )(3) charitable donation status and your charitable private or corporate donation can be used for a 2014 tax write-off. Recent family and friends of Act of Love have made a generous monetary donation that will help several adoptive families with their adoption, gift cards that will support the many and varied needs of birth parents and Christmas gifts that will help bring the Magic of Christmas to children that otherwise will not have gifts waiting for them on Christmas morning. Join these Act of Love family and friends and be a part of “The POWER of ONE” by looking below to see how your donation will touch the lives of others.

The joy and fulfillment our adoption team receives each day, as we provide services to children, birth parents and families is beyond measure.
