Not all orphans live in cardboard boxes- why are you sleeping in boxes at Orphan for a Night?
Go International is aware that not all global orphans are subject to living on the streets; however, many orphans in various areas around the world have no other option but the streets. Orphan for a Night, was created as an effort to raises funds and awareness, while bringing attention to the reality of those orphans that are without a home.
