Project Zero - Blog

I'm so excited to announce Project Zero's first fundraiser and the premiere of the NWA traveling Heart Gallery, on April 10 at Cross Church in Rogers, AR. Susan Hutchinson, First Lady of Arkansas will be our keynote speaker and Amy Duggar, TLC personality and musician, will provide entertainment at the event. This will be an extremely special night highlighting waiting kids and focusing on raising funds that will help us serve them better. There will be a silent auction and the opportunity to sponsor a Heart Gallery canvas.

I am tremendously blessed. The NWA team hosting and coordinating the event has been blown away by God's ability to open doors and provide us the opportunity to support these precious kiddos. There are 2 ways to get involved: Register to come or
