A portion of our community wants to challenge each other to maintain a healthy lifestyle, while raising funds and awareness for Transfiguring Adoption. TA is a nonprofit that helps foster and adoptive kids by showing caregivers how to use popular media and everyday play to help kids deal with past trauma.
We don’t just want another push up challenge though. One of the real secrets of having a healthy lifestyle is building relationships with other health conscious people who will support your goals. What better way to build new relationships than by putting everyone in teams with other members who are helping your team earn points by doing push ups everyday or getting donations in for your team! The winning team will get their team name inscribed on our competition cup.
All of us will have given foster and adoptive families tools to more successfully work through trauma, and ALL of us will be better equipped with relationships to maintain a healthy lifestyle this year.

Where’s the Money Going?
Our community would like to fully fund Transfiguring Adoption’s Media Review Project for an entire year.
Did you know that 100% of foster and adoptive children have experienced trauma? Did you know that 50% of newly licensed foster parents in the U.S. will quit their first year because they do NOT feel equipped to handle trauma-caused behaviors?
This project provides families with review and discussion guide packets for current movies, books, and video games. These tools not only empower parents to have healthy conversations which promote felt-safety, but also guard children against harmful content that could trigger them to relive past trauma in their minds.
- Assist the Solution Goal: $1,200
Keeps monthly pricing low and affordable for families while
providing some management to oversee the project.
- Boost the Solution Goal: $2,500
Provides families with qualified, trained staff to ensure quality
therapeutic resources are being created to meet needs
- Amplify the Solution Goal: $5,000
Allows the project to be fully staffed and provides training so that
staff can continue to improve how they are helping children
- Become the Solution Goal: $10,000
Ensures a fully trained, expert staff of reviewers who will create
therapeutic materials; Provides scholarships for a year of
complimentary materials to many families
