​Flat World Holdings to Support Foster Children through Grant Me Hope

Posted On September 20, 2016

Flat World Holdings and its family of companies, including Flat World Supply Chain and RAM International, are proud to announce that it is continuing its charitable efforts this fall by raising funds for the Michigan-based organization, Grant Me Hope.

Grant Me Hope uses marketing strategies to help children within the foster-care system find an adoptive family. The organization focuses specifically on children who are deemed “unadoptable”. Often these children are perceived this way because they are teenagers, are in sibling groups, or have medical and/or emotional challenges. Grant Me Hope’s mission is to find these children homes before they transition out of the foster care system.

“The mission of this organization deeply touched our hearts,” said Lisa Olson, Director of Global Business Development for RAM International. “While most of us will never know what it’s like to have an experience like these children, I think we all know what it can feel like to face a hard moment alone. I am really proud of our team here to take on this cause and this organization.”

Flat World Supply Chain and RAM International will host a fundraiser benefiting the organization on Thursday, October 20th from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Moretti’s Ristorante (1175 W. Lake St., Bartlett, IL 60103). Auction organizers request donations from the community of entertainment tickets, artwork, electronics, gift cards, and other items. The revenue generated from the auction will benefit Grant Me Hope and their mission to find homes and create a better future for the children served by the program.

“When you start a company, it’s a huge moment when you can just support yourself, and your own family,” says Kirk Ferrell, Flat World Holdings co-founder and Managing Partner. “It’s an even bigger moment when that company can support a team of employees and their families.”

“And it’s incredibly meaningful when you watch that team of people commit themselves to helping the less fortunate through charity efforts like this. It makes us so proud of the excellent team we have here, and all they do for the communities we work in.”
