As Ms. USA World Universal 2022, I have pledged to raise $5000 in financial support for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and The Trevor Project.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national, nonprofit public charity dedicated to finding forever families for the more than 140,000 children waiting to be adopted from foster care in the United States and Canada. Through its signature program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids®️, the Foundation supports the hiring of adoption professionals, known as recruiters, who serve children most at risk of aging out of foster care without a permanent home.
The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) young people.
$25 can provide a meal for a child in foster care.
$50 can provide basic clothes and toiletries to a child who was taken from their home by Child Protective Services with only the clothes on their back.
$100 purchases operational supplies like bins for clothing, shelves for donations, and other necessary items so non-profits can provide assistance to foster families taking in new kids.
$200 can keep a phone line operational for LGBTQ+ kids to call for support when they have nowhere else to turn and are at risk of suicide.
$500 helps train volunteers on counseling skills related to suicide and self-harm, child development, and LGBTQ+ issues so they can answer those phone lines.
$1000 helps pay fees related to opening civil courts on Saturday, Nov. 19 for National Adoption Day - an extra day of court where judges solely focus on granting adoptions in time for kids to officially have their forever homes before the holidays.
Join me in supporting these fabulous non-profits by placing your donation through my website.
