Private equity firm’s principal makes donation to world-wide adoption effort.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) August 16, 2011 Shane Baldwin of SilverLeaf Financial recently made a generous donation to the “Both Ends Burning” Campaign. The campaign addresses creating a better international adoption system so more orphaned and abandoned children can grow up in loving families.
Millions of children in the world today are orphaned or abandoned. They are facing unmet needs, emotional and intellectual challenges and even permanent damage. In many countries, international adoption programs are shutting down. Would-be parents face delays, expenses and bureaucracy under the existing inefficient system, while the number of orphans continues to grow.
Baldwin said, ”I wanted to make a donation to a cause I felt strongly about. I was adopted myself, by a terrific family. So by supporting this effort to improve the adoption system, I’m able to give back and positively impact the lives of other orphaned children.”
The world-wide campaign provides an alternative common-sense solution to replace the current process. What is needed is a new international adoption system that works to match waiting children with eligible families in a time frame measured in a few months, not several years.
Both Ends Burning founder and President, Craig Juntunen leads the campaign’s effort to build a social movement to enact real and lasting change for the worlds orphaned and abandoned children. The campaign stresses that our efforts on behalf of the world’s parentless children are only possible with help from others. “We should be proud of what we are accomplishing for these most vulnerable children . . . together.” said Juntunen.
