National Adoption Month!!

November is National Adoption Month (NAM)! Gladney will be giving tips throughout the month about how to spread the positives about adoption and specific ways you can get involved with Gladney. You can also visit orphansunday.org for more information about Orphan Sunday on November 7th.

Text NAM to 43648 to receive ideas on how to get involved. Msg & data rates may apply. Text HELP for help, STOP to stop.


Visit Gladney's facebook page and click on the NAM tab to see more tips as the month goes on!
  • NAM Activity #1: In election times, learn candidates' views on issues realted to adoption and child welfare. Make your views known to the candidates.
  • NAM Activity #2: Encourage your social network to join the various Gladney pages on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.
  • NAM Activity # 3: Have local government issue proclamation recognizing "November as National Adoption Month" http://ht.ly/33hk9
  • NAM Activity #4: Contact PTA President to see if you can present a program on Adoption in November. http://ht.ly/33iGZ
  • NAM Activity #5: Deliver Gladney Hotline cards & other outreach materials to Jr. High & High School teachers, counselors, nurses and librarians to distribute. Contact outreach@gladney.org if you would like materials.
In other news, The International Adoption Webinar has been updated to include information about Costa Rica!  Watch and share it with a friend! http://bit.ly/cpT3lp


Big projects for me over the last few weeks have included consolidating contacts for the New York office, working on a postcard, and learning about different events taking place for NAM.

Coming in once a week is a little crazy so I am really looking forward to being able to come to Gladney more often starting in January!
