About imME:

 

With over 160 million orphans worldwide, it’s evident there is an orphan crisis. What has been ignored is the fact that over 80% of these children, have a mother or father alive somewhere. Instead of addressing the symptom, i’mME is focused on addressing the root of problem – Ending the Orphan Cycle through family.

Job Creation, Education, and Family Preservation are the cornerstones of our mission. Instead of mothers and fathers placing their children in institutions, we seek to provide jobs so these parents are able to keep their kids.

Education is a powerful weapon to combat poverty and oppression, and we are committed to implementing enriching and creative environments on the ground. We believe in the power of family, and we devoted to strengthening, re-unifying, and developing the family structure.

We are focused on a long-term investment by partnering with locals on the ground. All of our programs and efforts will be run indigenously, with the mindset of empowerment and sustainability.

Parents want to keep their kids, but often face the difficult choice of keeping them or be able to feed themselves. We exist to be that alternative, and be a vessel of hope, opportunity, and value for families everywhere.

I'll be running my first marathon and want to use it as an opportunity to raise $500 or more for Pittsburgh Steeler (and former Buffalo Bill) David Nelson's organization i'mME - as he fights to end the orphan cycle!

The goal is simple. Raise $500 or more for his organization before the race, and then run in his jersey to further raise awareness. Take a minute and check out the page and donate a few bucks? Can be as little as your morning latte money or as much as you'd like.

Thanks!
