Helping to Find Forever Families for Children in Foster Care
COLUMBUS, OHIO, USA, January 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and the popular children's series, Harry Moon, are excited to announce a partnership that will help find more loving homes for children waiting in foster care.
The popular Harry Moon series is written for a middle school audience and encourages readers to become heroes in their own communities, accepting the differences of others and cultivating kind behavior. The series highlights topics like foster care, adoption and embracing those with special needs. The series publisher, Rabbit, sends Harry Moon Book Club Catalogs to schools around the United States. The club is managed by Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO). The color catalogs contain more than 25 specially-priced Harry Moon and Honey Moon titles. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
“The partnership with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption just makes sense to us,” said Rabbit’s Thom Black. “Our books address critical social issues that tie directly to the Foundation’s mission to find loving homes for children in foster care.”
There are more than 150,000 children in North America who are in foster care waiting to be adopted. More than 20,000 children age out of care each year. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption funds adoption recruiter positions at adoption agencies across the U.S. and Canada. Those recruiters focuses on finding homes for the children who are most at risk of aging out without being adopted. This includes older children, sibling groups and children with special needs.
“We love the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption,” says Rabbit’s Thom Black. “Championing the needs of our nation’s most vulnerable children is our number one priority. We want school children all across America to take part in our relationship with the Foundation."
The Harry Moon and Honey Moon series are distributed through Diamond Comic Distributors and Anchor Distributors
