Orange County Social Experiment: Will you join us??!?

We all know how powerful Google is, but often times we forget how powerful WE are. This year, Cal Coast is using our social push to do an experiment to see how many families we can get adopted for the holidays. Would you like to be a part?

It all started last year when our founder, Angie Weeks, and her husband Mike adopted a family in need. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved…the kids got items they desperately needed and mom actually got a little something for herself too. Of course, this lead to a new yearly ‘family tradition’ for the Weeks’ household 🙂

But….Angie’s an overachiever and wants to do more. One family every year is good, but its not good enough 🙁 We figured we’d take our adoption idea to the streets (aka our social networks) and see if more people were interested in adopting a family!

How to Adopt an Orange County Family for the Holidays

Have you ever wanted to do something nice for the holidays but weren’t sure what you could do? This is it!! Anyone can help, you can ‘adopt’ by simply sending a gift card, or by actually getting a list and playing Santa. Businesses or individuals or entire families can adopt…it would be an amazing experience if you involved your kids, too!

We’re not trying to endorse any one charity here, the idea is to see how many families can get adopted this holiday through all avenues. Here are a few we know of:

Lois – PCAA – 714-393-3685 –
Johanna Parra – Jump Start 4 Kids – 714-517-7107 ext. 1517 –
Sharon Wie – Interval House – (562) 594-9492 x231 –

Whether you share this post, tell a friend, or actually adopt, we thank you for going above and beyond for your community!

If you know of another organization who has families in need, please comment here or on our We Are Orange County discussion on LinkedIn. If you adopt or help in any way, please let us know so we can track the number of families helped! You can comment here, tweet @CalCoast, or post it on our Facebook wall.
