My friend, Dorothy, is planning to be at the T4A National Conference, October 21-22 and to be part of a panel during the Mothers’ pre-conference event on Thursday, October 20. She’s a woman worth spending time with. I have learned lots from her–proof that learning doesn’t always flow from the older to the younger.
I first heard of Tom Davis because of Dorothy’s raving about his books–positive raving, very positive. Then I heard him speak a couple of years ago. I was fascinated and horrified by what he told us about the likely future of young people who age out of orphanages in Eastern Europe and other places.
When I was at the Orphan Summit in Louisville in the spring, Children’s Hope Chest donated 4 copies of Tom’s book, Fields of the Fatherless: Discover the Joy of Compassionate Living to be given away. So this is a “better late than never” opportunity for you. It’s still appropriate because Tom will be one of the breakout session leaders at the T4A Conference and Children’s Hope Chest is one of the many exhibitors.
So here’s what to do to be eligible for winning one of the copies.
- Spend some time exploring the website of Children’s Hope Chest – say at least 5 minutes
- Watch at least one of the videos on the Media page
- Comment at this post to tell the rest of us something about your visit to the website. Something like maybe: What had the most impact on you? Or did something surprise you? Or do you feel challenged to do something new on behalf of orphans?
- Deadline is this Friday, 9/30, 11:59 pm CDT. After that 4 commenters will be randomly chosen.
