Belmont alumna Morgan Caldwell (’11) will leave New Jersey on May 1 to begin a 30-day tour with One Simple Wish, a nonprofit committed to serving children in foster care.
The tour, known as 30-30-30 seeks to raise awareness of the positive strides being made in the foster care system and to highlight what the public can do to get involved by completing 30 wishes in 30 cities in 30 days. In each city the team will visit at least one agency or organization, create a short film and grant one wish for a foster child associated with that organization.
On May 7, the tour will be in Nashville celebrating AGAPE’s Jamal, a high school senior and his upcoming graduation. The crew will also be granting Jamal’s wish–books for his first semester of college.
Caldwell said she is excited to use the tour as a way to continue the organization’s work to change the way Americans view the system and teach people of ways to get involved and touch children’s lives in special ways.
“One Simple Wish doesn’t exist to change or fix the foster care system, but I believe that it does give hope to the kids we reach – that someone, somewhere cared,” she said.
