Move to Matter and JFS is having a joint event to offer children the opportunity to impact other children in the world. This family event is being held at the Discovery Museum in Bridgeport where children will discover the love of giving at any age. If your child is going to participate in the Move to Matter activity, you need to register in advance at www.movetomatter.com on the December 4 webpage.
The Discovery Museum will be a place where your child can start or finish their exercise commitment. There will be an area at the Museum where coaches will assist children with sit-ups, jump roping and running in place. All families are welcome whether or not they registered to join the activity. Admission includes Dare to Discover, interactive activities, appetizers, soft drinks. A cash bar will also be available. Vegetarian or Kosher options are available upon request - please contact JFS directly at 203-366-5438 after ticket purchase.
Jewish Family Service in Fairfield has helped facilitate over 800 adoptions of children from all over the world. They have always had the philosophy that children, as well as adults, should be encouraged to give back by helping others. They have long had programs encouraging volunteerism, especially for teens. They have joined in this effort with Move to Matter because it provides an opportunity for children of almost any age to discover the joys of giving to others.
Jewish Family Service has a history of helping the most vulnerable orphans. Unfortunately, due to recent changes in International Adoption Law, many local family members can no longer afford the high costs required to adopt their young orphan relatives from poor third world countries. Without financial support, countless children are being stranded in some of the poorest living conditions on the earth when they could be brought to better lives with loving relatives here in America.
Your support can make all the difference in the life of a child. With your help, children can be united with loving families and given the means to a brighter future! The event will celebrate your child's charitable giving.
