A New Fundraiser Project
We've added a very unusual reward to those donors who contribute $25 to this project. It's water that flows from a spring in the Grotto of Massabielle in the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, in France. Many have claimed that the water has produced health miracles for them. Click on the picture below to see a short video on the site about the water. It's in the latest update.
Karma Lottery Fundraiser
Get Rewarded for Giving
"What goes around, comes around"

About This Fundraiser:
Instead of charging you to attend a fancy black and white event, and then giving you a lavish dinner - we have a different approach. In exchange for your donation, we will 'gift' you a Massachusetts Lottery ticket. The larger the donation - the larger the lottery ticket gift we give to you. You may win big. You may win small. And you may not win at all. But for sure, this act of kindness will certainly impact your karma.
And what is karma? Simply put, "What goes around, comes around." It is the thoughts and actions that you take today, that you experience the consequences of later. So what are you waiting for? Isn't it time to send some good karma your way?

A Short Overview of Our Foundation
The Orphan Foundation's mission is to find loving homes for the 163 million orphans around the world. If you are interested in adoption, please go to our Adoption page for guides and more information.
Background on Our Foundation
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation, and we are blessed with the wonderful mission of helping to rescue orphaned children - especially those children who are determined to have "special needs." We help lower and middle income US adopting families who are opening their hearts and homes to these wonderful children. These wonderful families have a significantly increased financial burden due to the cost of the child's associated medical or psychological treatments.
Sometimes Statistics Speak Volumes:
Grants We've Provided:
Here are some of the adoption agencies / non-profits through which we gave grants to adopting families. We give monies only through 501(c)3 intermediaries:

But before you decide if you want to help us rescue these children, we think you should hear the stories behind the first 3 grants we gave out in 2007.
The First Three Adoption Grant from The Orphan Foundation
What makes a single mom struggling to start up a new business, adopt a hard-to-place, “special needs” child from another country? Why would a perfectly happy, healthy, and content family take on a Down syndrome child with heart complications, when the boy’s own mother chose to give him up at 6 weeks of age? And why would a New York family rescue three frail and traumatized orphans from the ravages of Liberia’s second civil war?
