World Orphans Day is November 14, 2022

It is with great excitement that we are pushing forward after our World Orphans Day Summit in Nashville in 2019, to further our mutual commitment to champion the humanitarian rights of orphans and foster children worldwide.   By bringing their issues and concerns  to the global stage for corporate and governmental agencies to be made aware,  we are hopeful to better the lives of the most oppressed and underserved children in the world.

Mark Siljander , Board of Regents,  advised our team to research the process for drafting a UN resolution.  After locating a UN video about the process, we are moving forward with the first Step:  Acquiring support of a Member State of the UN, which is the Kingdom of Eswatini, willing to do what they can to get a draft resolution in front of the correct committee of the United Nations.    Prime Minister Themba Masuku has graciously been willing to donate his efforts and time to meet with his Cabinets and Minister of Foreign Affairs there in Eswatini to propel the project along.   Ms Dlamini Hlobisile,  from the Prime Minister’s Office will be advising us as they move forward in taking the various steps!   This is so encouraging.

We are looking for additional support from various Heads of State, or Governors,  to support this resolution in unity with us.     We are hoping that the group included here will be able and willing to ask the leaders in their governments to take a stand by Lighting a Building Purple for World Orphans Day.     We are asking the Washington Times, through  Dr. Frank Kaufmann, to possibly write an article  for publication about the resolution and our desires for it to be passed by the UN, to  observe the Second Monday in November as World Orphans Day by the UN.   Prime Minister Themba Masuku is willing to be interviewed for the article.   I am available as well.

We are looking for other heads of state or royalty, or dignitaries to offer their support as Lord David Alton has so graciously done.  Create Videos of Support for mass media and Television distribution, Press releases, Etc.   We are in hopes Ban Ki Moon will write a letter of endorsement,  to the Committee that reviews the resolution. As former Secretariat General of the UN, this would be huge progress for us.  Mark Siljander, former US Ambassador to the UN,  has a relationship with him to approach him about this at the right time. 

Organizations that care about Orphans, we hope will take their own initiative to Light up THEIR World Purple for the Orphans in an effort to bring awareness to their cause.  For this reason, I am writing Youth Villages,  Crime Stoppers ( one of our Human Trafficking partner),  Camp Southern Ground,  local  Homes for Children in NC and TN,   and Samaritan’s Feet,  and others to participate,  and YWAM around the world has many chapters that support Orphans.   We anticipate the Memphis Bridge,  several Theme parks,  and landmarks, and universities to be lit up as well.   We are also asking SOS in Austria to light their campus’  purple.  Honorary Chairman of Africa for World Orphans Day, Prime Minister Themba Masuku, is willing to extend letters out to the heads of state and Embassies to light up a building in their country.  We are very grateful for his dedication!

With an extensive media campaign coming up, we will have the 2021 The Voice Second Place winner,  Wendy Moten,  PSA ready for TV distribution and are delighted that NRB TV and AIM Country Music Television are already involved.      We are releasing it today to NRB TV and Aim Country Music Television.

Iceman Productions is integrating our Wendy Moten  The VOICE  Runner Up 2021  Public Service Announcement  into 80 plus episodes  of “ready to air” sports programming that will be broadcast internationally into 40-50 countries.  Plus NRB TV and AIM Country Music Television will be airing it as well.  We anticipate a plus 130,000,000 households reach through the networks we are targeting.   Wendy will be touring this summer with Vince Gill.  

Thank you for all that you do in your fields to do the work to make the world a better place. If you feel so led to engage with us in some manner to help bring more  attention to the day, World Orphans Day,  in your country, or place of business, please let us know.   

We will update periodically.   Thank you for your time in reading this.I am available by phone to speak with you at any time. It helps to put it on my schedule of course.    Ph. 615 428  5624

Please see the attachment below.  These will be part of what is presented to the United Nations, along with the resolution and video presentation by Lord David Alton of the UK Parilament.  

Warm regards,

Cheryl Piggott

May God bless you all!
