Mission WV Walk Me Home

The Walk Me Home event is put on by Mission WV, the non-profit organization I have been able to partner with this year.  The goal for this event is to raise awareness of those children in foster care that are eligible for adoption, in hopes that those who participate will walk home with a child needing that "Forever Family."
There were about 50 people in attendance and various different non-profit organizations that are associated with Mission WV.  In Morgantown, there is a Mission WV employee that has adopted at least three children, that I know of, and we all danced to Justin Beiber and Miley Cyrus while the parents and other adults walked the track surrounding the Power Park Baseball Field.  

Along with the DJ service, face painting, balloon animals, and tattoos were a huge hit!  

There are currently 4,000 children within the West Virginia Foster Care System and 1,000 of those are eligible to be adopted TODAY!  That Saturday alone, thousands of dollars were raised as well as the awareness of those awaiting children.
