The goal of this Charity Gala is to help us to finish rebuilding the Dzegvi Shelter and protect more vulnerable children and abandoned elderly.

AFG is at the forefront of this humanitarian response but we can’t do it alone! We need your help.

Announcing The New AdoptTogether.org

unnamed

AdoptTogether has officially partnered with Pure Charity to become:

ADOPTTOGETHER powered by Pure Charity

Their new partnership will be official this Wednesday, April 26.

All of your basic questions & answers about their new partnership is featured below, but feel free to email Sueann@adopttogether.org with any further questions!

We are so EXCITED!

Here’s to a brighter future for all AdoptTogether families, and greater strides towards the vision of a world with a family for every child!

Five Changes You May Notice on the New AdoptTogether.org

1. A New Look
AdoptTogether.org is going to look far different than before. Essentially, it will have all the same functionality with an upgraded look and feel to make donating and creating a profile just as easy as before. NOTE: All preexisting family profile information and donation history will automatically be transferred to the new site

2. A Transition Period
Real talk, whenever a website gets a massive overhaul like the one AdoptTogether has gone through, you can expect the occasional hiccup. Things you may notice could be anything from a broken link, a few grammatical errors, and a slight delay in data being transferred over from the old to the new site. For instance, profile changes and donations made after Friday 4/21 will be reflected on the new site by the end of this week. If you have already received an AdoptTogether Grant, it will appear on your Grant Dashboard within the next two weeks.

3. The Grant Submission Process
AdoptTogether.org now features a Grant Request Portal for families to quickly and easily request their funds raised through AdoptTogether. This process is one of the fundamental services AdoptTogether provides families, and it just got a whole lot more efficient!

4. New Tools For Your Profile  
AdoptTogether profiles will now come with a variety of upgraded features, which include an enhanced ability to track your donor activity, view your Grant Request status and history, display a geotag showing the region where you’re adopting from, and upload videos to keep your network informed and engaged with your family’s progress!

5. Resources
To aide families in the adoption process, the AdoptTogether team has collected and created over 80 resources full of information about everything from "How to Start the Adoption Process," to "What You Need to Know the First Day Your Child Comes Home." We hope these new resources will be a valuable asset to families for years to come!
If you still have any questions about the new partnership please email Sueann@adopttogether.org.

Cheers!

Take Adoptive Families’ Cost & Timing Survey for the chance to win a charitable donation in your name

22e17329-0631-4481-baca-36b238367676 Did you adopt a child in 2013 or 2014? If so, please share the cost and timing of your adoption by taking Adoptive Families‘ survey. You’ll help prospective adoptive families by providing up-to-date information.

Each year, Adoptive Families polls readers to get the real story on the average cost and length of time it takes to complete an adoption. We frequently hear from families just starting out in adoption that our Adoption Cost Breakdowns, based on the final survey results, are immensely helpful to them.

We’re pleased to once again offer a special giveaway to encourage more families to share their adoption experiences. If more than 1,000 parents who adopted in 2013 or 2014 complete this year’s survey, we will randomly select one participant and donate $250 to the adoption organization of his or her choice!

UPDATE: We are so close to our goal of 1,000 completed surveys—we need just 119 more parents to participate! Please take the survey today if you adopted in 2013 or 2014, and forward to any other families you know who did.
