2013 Transformations Accomplished

March Spotlight: Media Voices for Children

Media Voices for Children stands out as a shining example of people who’s lives are dedicated to eliminating child poverty. Through its on-line media campaign and feature length film productions MVC has raised awareness of this global disaster that virtually every respected leader of our time has pointed to as the greatest threat to our human civilization. The destruction of humanity over time through neglect. In spite of the billions of dollars traditional aid sources have raised; little has been done to change the collision course with disaster we still face. The Orchids of Light are dedicated to helping Media Voices complete the film that will teach the world how we can truly make a difference and save the future for our children and those of the global community. Please become an Orchid of Light and be a part of the solution.

Learn more about how MVC plans on ending child poverty.

    Unlike other 501C3’s who apply 25-50% of the monies donated to salaries and overhead expenses, Orchid’s directs 100% of the donor’s capital to the specific project or individual selected by each investor and provides complete, transparent accountability for the entire investment. In so doing and by requiring our partners to meet Orchid’s value standards, the Orchids [...]
