It’s that time of year…NIGHT WALK 2014, has come around and I beyond excited to tell you more. WHY is this year completely amazing?
- I love this years camp theme, “Jubilee”
- I want to beat last years number of Night Walkers, we had approximately 155 people
- And last but not least, Bring Me Hope is celebrating their 10 year anniversary (can I blow my party horn to celebrate?)
Oh, and I almost forgot one more reason, they are not only introducing a new T-Shirt but are bringing back 3 others from their “Vintage Tees” collection. So, if you can’t decide on what design you like best, feel free to order all 4 (the “Vintage Tees” collection are limited in number and are a first come, first serve product).
So, now back to the logistics. For any new people reading this, let me give you a little background. Night Walk is a chance for us to show orphans love. On May 2nd, we will gather together in the evening and walk for an hour, while Chinese orphans walk during the day. Our goal during this time is to get as many people together to raise money for orphan sponsorships. Each walker that signs up (you get a free shirt when you sign up before April 19th) provides Bring Me Hope the funds they need to send orphans to this years summer camp. The more walkers/sponsors we have, the more kids get to leave the orphanage and go to summer camp…the more kids that come to summer camp, the more lives that are changed and get to be advocated for. This is a chance for those who can’t volunteer at Bring Me Hope to be a megaphone for the voiceless and help fund these kids.
What does Bring Me Hope need?
Leaders! They had 31 groups last year…let’s try to double those numbers. If one person from each state would lead a group we would almost be there. Leading a group is pretty simple…it requires getting people together and finding a location, that’s about it.
Walkers! They need people willing to get together with an awesome group of friends and walk on May 2nd. You can walk at a local park, through the city, on a bike trail or at your local school track.
Sponsors! They want anyone that can’t walk or lead to sponsor someone else to walk or buy a T-Shirt.
I want YOU…if you are reading this, you can take part. Click HERE to see more about a walk that happened last year in the Alamo.

For the Kids!
