Tonight big-time musicians like Katy Perry, Nelly, Ricky Martin and Maroon 5 are performing on behalf of foster children. The 12th Annual A Home for the Holidays special on CBS will celebrate the joys of adoption and hopefully encourage potential parents to help over 114,000 thousand children in the United States Foster Care system.
Through profiles of inspirational stories and heartfelt musical performances, the show promote the work of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
"There is still a crisis in this country," says Rita Soronen, President and CEO of the foundation, "We need to raise awareness that these children are waiting to be adopted. We can connect you with an agency in your community."
Get started helping foster kids right away. Interested parents can call 1-800-ASK-DTFA or visit the organization's website to be connected to a local agency.
There are other ways to help too. Lead a parenting workshop, put parenting resources in your local library, or tell us your own idea on how to help promote proper child care.
