Run for Love 2015, just one of the many K-LOVE Fan Awards and Ultimate Fan Experience Weekend events, will be building homes for orphans in Haiti thanks to a continued partnership with Hands and Feet Project. Last year’s celebrity 5k saw over 600 people take action to bring love to Haiti’s orphaned and abandoned children.
Fan voting for the popular awards show will kick-off on May 1. Voting for the K-LOVE Fan Awards is more that just a vote – with every 500,000 votes, Hands and Feet Project commits to building a family-style home, caring for up to 8 orphaned or abandoned children. More information can be found at www.KLOVEFanAwards.com.
“We are thrilled and humbled to be apart of such an outstanding event,” explains Mark Stuart, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Hands and Feet Project. “The Hands and Feet Project was launched 10 years ago with the help of Christian music fans and those fans continue to play a vital role in fulfilling our mission of caring for Haiti’s orphaned and abandoned today. The K-LOVE Fan Award’s Run For Love is a celebration of what we can do together as the Hands and Feet of Christ.”
The work of Hands and Feet Project is multi-faceted. Under the guidance of Haiti’s Child Social Services, the agency provides holistic, residential care for children in crisis by building and operating Children’s Villages with multiple family-style homes lead by Haitian House Mothers. Additionally, they help to create sustainable and dignified jobs to push against the poverty-driven child abandonment and child slavery cycles.
