No More Orphans
Join the SC Heart Gallery on the road to learn more about foster care adoption and the children who are legally free for adoption in South Carolina. We will be exhibiting in Columbia, SC on Monday, Sept. 24.
On Monday night, September 24th, 2018 at 6pm, The NO MOREFoundation is partnering with All Pro Dad, Bible Way Church of Atlas Road, and South Carolina Department of Social Services to bring The NO MORE ORPHANS Experience to Columbia, SC. THIS COMMUNITY-WIDE EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
It is estimated that there are 143 million orphans in the world today, close to 500,000 children in the US Foster Care System and over 4,600 children in South Carolina alone in need of support. Although the statistics may be staggering, the reality is that every number has a face, every face has a name, and every name has a story.
This event is unique with local bands, personal stories, experts in the field, an artist, and a nationally known spoken word poet, NO MORE looks to give people a window from which they can see, hear, experience and understand both the heart of God and the heart of the orphan. "Our goal is to put as many faces to the need as possible, and to provide as many opportunities as possible for people to connect to what is needed and respond to that need with action. We want every person who comes to the event, whether they are in college, retired, or any stage of life in between, to see how they can personally make a difference in the life of a child," says Tami Kent, Co-Founder of NO MORE. For that reason, The NO MORE Foundation has partnered with local and international organizations, so that people can make a personal connection and get signed up to serve where their heart compels them. Over the past 5 years, The NO MORE Foundation has worked with churches and organizations all over the country to bring an event to communities just like this one, and they are excited to see people of South Carolina engage in this important cause.
The NO MORE Foundation exists to connect people care for the vulnerable through events such as these, bringing them out on the other side with one anthem: "NO MORE! This can't and won't happen anymore on our watch!"
