Seint's Love Is Never Wasted Foundation
February 26, 2021
As an Artist, you have the opportunity to partner with Seint through our non-profit foundation, Love Is Never Wasted, to be a lifeline for children in foster care. We are committed to educating and encouraging communities and families to open their hearts and homes to foster children, and our Artists work alongside us as we seek to serve and share, making a real difference in connecting loving families with children in need.
Since the beginning of our journey, Love is Never Wasted has raised more than $600k, which we've used to film and produce a movie called Love Is Never Wasted; became a partner in the Together We Rise project; made donations to local- and national- youth programs; and make annual donations to our local foster care agency. Along with putting the money all of our amazing Artists have raised to good use, we have a foundation activity each year at our company-wide Reunions.
2020 was a big year for the foundation- Love is Never Wasted started a podcast, where Cara and Nick were able to sit down and interview a wide range of guests- from juvenile district court judges to social workers, to foster parents and former/current foster kids, they are hoping that the podcast raises awareness around the foster care system, and provides a way for people to learn how to get involved. To learn more about the Love is Never Wasted podcast, find us on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
There are currently more than 400,000 children in foster care within the United States. When Cara and Nick started Love is Never Wasted, they set out with a missions to:
DISPEL the negative myths and stigmas surrounding foster care and provide education and resources to communities and prospective foster families.
DIMINISH the surplus of children in the foster care system by encouraging families to open their hearts and provide safe and loving homes.
DEMONSTRATE that love is never wasted. Because helping children find love and support in a family setting that they otherwise wouldn’t have makes all the difference.
By being a part of Seint- and Love is Never Wasted- we hope you'll come to find ways you can get involved in the foster care community- whether that be become a licensed foster parent, or donating your time, a service, or goods to those in need.
We have a Facebook Group with an incredible bunch of Artists that are either licensed, currently fostering, former foster homes, have adopted through foster care, or were foster children themselves. It's a group that offers support when needed and an opportunity to share with other Artists that are on a similar journey. If you fit into any of the above categories, are new here, or are just finding out about this, please fill out THIS FORM.
Also, as another way to support our Foundation Artists, we have a form for you to let us know if you've had a recent status change with becoming licensed, getting a foster placement, or are finalizing an adoption, fill out THIS FORM.
Thank you all for your support as we are working hard to raise awareness around foster care ♥
