HELP US ENCOURAGE FAMILY BONDING BY MAKING A DONATION
We are raising money for future first-time adoptive families and their family bonding adventures! Your contribution will make a major impact, whether you donate $10 or $500. Right now, adoptive families are learning to be a family while helping the new additions to their families overcome past trauma. Every day there are new challenges and they face them together.
Funds raised will go directly towards the trip to help cover each family's airfare, hotel accommodations, park tickets, and food/beverage. To the right are suggested donation amounts for your consideration.
Adventure Is Out There is a non-profit 501(c)(3) national organization and your contribution does qualify as a tax deduction. Please consult your tax advisor to determine the deductibility of any contribution.
WHO IS ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE (AIOT)?
AIOT was started in 2017 to benefit first-time adoption families. Our mission is to advance the education and training of new adoption families while focusing on increasing the welfare of family relationships through Disney and other nurturing experiences that encourage family bonding.
WHAT DOES AIOT FOCUS ON?
What AIOT focuses on is creating and building family experiences for newly adopted families – not only within their own family but with other adoptive families as well. We do so by awarding family-based, all-expense-paid trips to these families, all from funds raised from our generous donors.
WHY ARE THESE FAMILY EXPERIENCES SO IMPORTANT?
Signing the adoption decree, while a blessing, is the beginning of emotional challenges to overcome and the unlearning of survival skills that may have been developed because of the past. It's not uncommon for trauma to play a major role in the world of foster and adoption. The American Academy of Pediatrics says, “Assume that all children who have been adopted or fostered have experienced trauma.” The trauma these kids lived with growing up came in many forms such as neglect, abuse, drugs, among others. Understanding this, families who foster and adopt not only invest their time and resources, they open their hearts and homes to help these children overcome this trauma and their everyday challenges.
