Five Acres Launches Digital Campaign

Five Acres has launched a digital campaign to raise awareness for foster care and adoption in Los Angeles and surrounding counties. The Five Acres Trust Fall Challenge invites friends, families, co-workers, businesses, community organizations and more to film and share their own trust fall videos online with the hashtags #fall4fiveacres and #20kby2020. The challenge symbolizes the agency’s key message: that every child belongs in the arms of a safe, loving and permanent family.
Anyone with a smart phone can join in on the challenge and “tag” others to complete the challenge as well. The campaign will culminate on Saturday, Nov. 18 — National Adoption Awareness Day. The intent of the campaign is to spread awareness for the critical need of more foster and foster/adoptive parents for the more than 20,000 children living without permanent family solutions in Los Angeles. Donors can make one-time or recurring donations to their mission and will receive a limited edition campaign button to support the cause. Participants can also contact Five Acres to learn more about how to volunteer with their programs and events.
In tandem with the campaign, Five Acres will attempt to break the world record for relay trust falls to boost community awareness. The attempt will take place at Five Acres’ main campus at 760 W. Mountain View St. in Altadena on Wednesday, Nov. 1, at 1 p.m. The event is open to the community and interested participants can RSVP to Emily Peters, Five Acres’ Communications and PR Coordinator, at epeters@5acres.org.
