Murrieta, CA, May 1, 2014–Salvation International Adoption Charity, located and founded by Murrieta resident Danielle Fleenor, launched its first crowd-funding campaign on the popular site Indiegogo.com.
Their goal is to raise $140-thousand-dollars to help 28 families adopt children from the US and around the world.
The campaign officially launched on May 1, 2014 and will run until June 15, 2014. All funds raised will go to help the 28 families that have already identified children that are waiting to be adopted.
Bringing together a group of friends, including ARLENE BELL, Director of Donations, Marketing and Event Coordination, SANDY KORDICK, Director of Fundraising & Volunteer Coordinator, and STACY DEMPSEY, Director of Communications, Danielle has previously worked with her team to create a series of fund raising events.
Fund raisers over the past two and half years have included rummage sales, comedy nights, fashion shows, walks, restaurant lunches and dinners, winery events, sporting events including “Batting for Babies,” and concerts.
The $33,250 dollars raised to date has been donated to 17 families, adopting children from 8 countries including the United States, China, Ethiopia, Ghana, Latvia, Republic of Congo, South Africa, and Uganda.
This newest fundraising initiative was kicked off with Danielle and her friends marching from the south end of Old Town Temecula, making a stop at Stadium Pizza Temecula and ending at the Farmstead Market in Murrieta. Once at the Farmstead, Robert Walker and Kaitlyn Weathers performed, while the growing crowd received the news and celebrated the launch of the crowd-funding campaign.
