Consider the levels of greatness that Nelson Mandela, Isaac Newton and Steve Jobs all achieved. Each of these icons lost parents and/or were taken in by others at a young age - much like our kids in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Each faced the hard realities of life earlier than they should’ve, but thanks to those who cared around them, they went on to greatness. At the tender ages of 6, 7, 8, 9 ... who would've thought that Mandela, Newton or Jobs would go on to shape the world?? No one. But these men were given opportunities by those around them, which they took, and then pressed on. Please help us to play a part in shaping who’ll be the next Nelson Mandela, Steve Jobs or Isaac Newton.

November is National Orphan Awareness month. It's not a race ... but we're asking you to "move" intentionally for 30 minutes every day for the 30 days in November to honor 30 orphaned children in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Every day we'll send you the special story of one of our orphaned children and ask that you'll keep them in your thoughts in a daily workout - run, walk, weights, climb, yoga, pilates, dance, boxfit, etc. Write their name on your hand, take pictures and post them to social media with the hashtag #hopemoves2021. If you don't want to post to social media, that's no problem at all. We'll feel your "moving" vibes anyhow 😉. Get your friends involved, because just by raising awareness of the plight of orphans we can love on these kids and help to eliminate feelings of being alone and abandoned. 

#hopemoves2021 is being organized by Hope 4 The Orphan (H4TO); a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in Illinois, USA. H4TO represents hope for the least of them in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe; destitute children who've lost one or both of their parents. The charity helps these vulnerable children and their caregivers by providing school fees, uniforms, securing basic medical care, as well as spiritual and emotional nurture. It operates through the generosity of others.

There is greatness in each of our kids in Bulawayo. They didn't choose the tough situations that they're in but could really do with a "break" to set them on their way. Help these kids with a daily “move” in November - it’ll cost you nothing and make the world of difference to them.

Move with us. Help us to help them through #hopemoves2021 !!

This event is completely free. Please don't feel obliged to donate but if you'd like to, please use this site or visit H4TO's website: https://www.hope4theorphan.org/
