About The Thankful Ones

ABOUT THE THANKFUL ONES:
On Thanksgiving Eve of 2015 Katie, Emme, Easton and I, Matthew Martin, welcomed my six year old cousin, Everly Frances, into our home. Only the man above knows what the final outcome will be, but we have every intention of fighting for her long-term wellbeing, and permanently adopting her into our family. She is an amazing child that deserves to be in a loving, safe, and structured environment. Fortunately for Everly, she has a huge support system willing to step up to do everything in our power to make that happen. Many children are not as fortunate, and this is the reason myself along with family and close friends are starting a non-profit organization, The Thankful Ones.

The Thankful Ones is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that will ultimately provide financial support to the families in the process of adopting a child of addictive parents, and bring awareness to the topic of adoption and addiction and how children are affected by both. The adoption process is a grueling one that requires a lot of time, patience, money, support, faith and prayer. Until one gets involved in something like this, one cannot imagine how complex, time consuming and expensive the legal system is regarding adoption.

OUR MISSION: The Thankful Ones is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and shall operate exclusively for educational and charitable purposes.  The Thankful Ones’ purpose is to provide financial support to families in the process of adopting a child/children of addictive parents. The proceeds given to the adoptive family will help pay for court fees, counseling costs, and other expenses that ensure the safety and well being of the child/children. By hosting fundraising events, The Thankful Ones will work to bring awareness to the topics of adoption and addiction and how both affect children involved. We will provide volunteer opportunities to generate a greater effect and to create community involvement and awareness. To maximize our impact, we may seek to collaborate with other similar non-profit organizations which fall under the 501 (c)(3) section of the internal revenue code and are operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes.
