On the Move for Orphans – 11/12 & 11/13
Last week, two of our Movement Clubs had events for their semester projects!
The first was in Petal, Mississippi with our Petal High School Club. They had a night of worship and raising awareness about how students can get involved in orphan care. Our very own Chris Wheeler (Show Hope’s student initiatives director) spoke at the event about how high school students can make a difference in the lives of orphans, as well as some other great speakers from the area.
The next was an event that The Movement at Franklin High School put on at The Factory in Franklin, TN. “Concert for a Cause” was a benefit concert for the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home (TBCH). Several local high school bands played, coffee was sold, and Rees Greenman from TBCH talked about what they do and how students can get involved. Chris Wheeler also shared about how high school students can engage in orphan care. The club raised a total of $645 at the event!
Both events were super successful and a great example of how high school students can speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves! While both of these were bigger, semester long projects, there are lots of ways you can make a difference. Check out this past blog post for ideas on how you can engage in orphan care!
