Amy's Extraordinary Alabama: Heart Gallery Alabama

By Amy

Did you know that there are over 6000 children in the foster care system of Alabama? Of these over 600 are available for adoption and while many will be adopted by their foster families many others are still waiting. Waiting on their forever families.

And that's where Heart Gallery Alabama steps in. Heart Gallery of Alabama is an organization working to help these children find their forever families.

The Heart Gallery recruits photographers to take portraits of these precious children to promote adoption. The portraits are displayed in places all over the state where prospective adoptive parents can learn more about these amazing children.

Their mission is to find permanent, loving families for each of these children.

There are many ways you can help. You can visit their site here to find out more, but you can also do something this week. Join them for an evening of art, gifts, & vacation pacakges, live music and food at their Foto, Frames & Fun 2010 event. The event will be held at Ted's Garage (2309 5th Ave S, Birmingham, AL) on Thursday, February 11 at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.

Information for this post was found at the organization's website.
