2nd Annual Summer of 1,000 Dinners

Your house. Your friends. Your dinner.
Your Cause: Orphans and at-risk children

 July 18th - September 30th

Join hundreds of people all across the country as they throw a party for orphans.

140 million children have lost one or both parents. For every three months spent in an orphanage, a child loses one month of developmental skills. Worldwide Orphans brings play, education, health and psychosocial development to orphans and vulnerable children through our programs focused on attachment, early intervention, healthcare and the arts. We work closely with communities to build capacity and raise awareness of the critical importance of play to help address the effects of trauma in children.

In 2014, we touched over 7,500 children and adults through our innovative and transformational programming. We want to reach more children in more communities. YOU CAN HELP!

 Be a Night of 1,000 Dinners host! Raise awareness, raise funds, raise the roof!  

Plan a party -- Anything goes! Throw an informal backyard BBQ, an intimate cocktail party, a picnic in a park, a pool party, get some friends together at your favorite bar or restaurant. Or throw a themed big bash.  Be creative!  It can be as small or large as you want, and a great excuse to get friends and family together!
