Take The NCAM Talent Challenge In Support Of Project Hope Alliance!

We invite you to showcase your talent in the NCAM Talent Challenge to help Project Hope Alliance win $50,000!


In celebration of National Child Awareness Month, Festival of Children Foundation is hosting the NCAM Talent Challenge—a video challenge showcasing your talent in support of your favorite children's charity, Project Hope Alliance.


If Project Hope Alliance accumulates the most "BUZZ," we win $50,000 to fuel our mission of ending the cycle of homelessness, one child at a time. More than 26,000 children are struggling with homelessness in Orange County. Our hope is to welcome funds to move more families out of homelessness and into safe, stable homes, and to provide more children with the exceptional educations that they deserve. So far this year, we have moved 346 children out of homelessness.


Now through noon on Friday, September 30, 2016.
