Many states across America pay less to care for a foster child than a kennel charges to board and feed a dog! Please help save a childhood ~ Support America's Forgotten Foster Care Children.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Today, more than half a million children in the United States are in foster care. Recent studies have shown an increase in child abuse, and/or neglect due to our nation’s current economic crisis. Our most precious resources- our children are in desperate need of your help. America's current statistics on foster care is appalling; 90% of foster children before their 21st Birthday will be incarcerated, homeless or dead. “Please, help save America’s Infants and Children!”
How will this project solve this problem?
Our main goal is to advertise on commercials and in magazines for quality foster/adopt parents, by placing a sweeter face on foster children. It's is equally as imperative to provide the public information on the plight of America's Foster Children.
Potential Long Term Impact
By 2010, governmental statistics is estimating the United States of America will have close to one million children in foster care, many of these children will be medically fragile due to methamphetamine use among pregnant women.
