As we draw toward the end of another successful year, the staff at RealTracs would like to reflect and thank everyone who has contributed in one capacity or another toward finding homes for thousands and thousands of families in Middle Tennessee and beyond.
In that same spirit, RealTracs would like to remind everyone about Tennessee Kids Belong. Just like the wonderful REALTORS, appraisers, support staff, and more who contribute to finding homes for so many, Tennessee Kids Belong finds “forever” homes for the almost 8,000 foster children and orphans in Tennessee.
On behalf of Tennessee Kids Belong, the official charitable organization of RealTracs, we are asking for your generosity and help in assuring these children are not forgotten. Below is the Wish List of Tennessee Kids Belong.
$100 – Become a $100/month sponsor. We are currently looking for 100 people to commit to $100/month. This amount will help unite and mobilize the entire state to make a significant impact on the lives of Tennessee children in foster care.
$250 – Pay for supplies for an I Belong Project video shoot day. These days aim to make the kids, and social workers feel seen, cared for and appreciated. Children leave with new clothes, a framed picture of themselves, full bellies and lots of goodies.
$500 – Sponsor one TKB hosted gathering that unites faith leaders in a TN county with local social workers in that region. Outcomes range from churches launching recruitment events and full foster care and adoption ministries, tangible needs met for kids and families, and the ongoing relationship between church and state in these areas. On any given week our team is corresponding with 50+ churches and 25+ social workers.
$1000 – Give children in foster care a face and a voice. The I Belong Project videos are the single most effective tool for ensuring that kids waiting for an adoptive family find one. This amount covers the cost of ONE video and recruitment for this child for one year. The videos are also used as recruitment tools for foster families, continuously moving families towards the idea of fostering, especially teenagers.
$5000 – Become a FOUNDING partner in the Business Impact Program that will be rolling out in early 2019! Companies across the state will work with us to implement programs that will IMPACT their employees who are currently fostering or adopting, IMPACT their community and IMPACT children in foster care.
$10,000 – Help with expansion in East and West TN. Our team currently travels the whole state. There is excellent potential to see major changes and even more impact in these areas, but it will take more boots on the ground in these communities to make it happen.
