This #GivingTuesday help fund WarBabies efforts to reunite long lost families of American Soldiers and their Amerasian children.
On December 3, 2019, millions of people from around the world will support the causes they believe in and give back to their communities. #GivingTuesday is the biggest global giving movement inspiring generosity that goes well beyond a single day.
WarBabies is excited to be a part of this worldwide fundraising event, providing a chance for compassionate individuals like you to give back to our community.
Since June, 2018, we have spent countless hours researching and connecting Veterans with their children. In total we have found or reunited 6 families and have over 30 clients we are still working with. We are getting more clients every day! This #GivingTuesday, let’s fund WarBabies together in order to continue this mission..
Philanthropy fuels our life-changing work of research and reunification.
As you’ve witnessed, when the WarBabies community comes together, the possibilities are limitless. #GivingTuesday provides a chance to show fellow Veterans and Amerasians and the world what WarBabies means to us by rallying together in our Facebook support group and helping us spread the word of our mission. Will you rally with us to show your support?
We hope you’ll join us this #GivingTuesday, December 3, 2019 to continue to reunite Veterans with their Amerasian children.

Here at WarBabies, we are currently a Not-For-Profit organization and operate strictly on donations. To date, most of it has been paid for out of our own pockets. We handle each case individually based on their situation and need, we do not charge a fee for our services. However, there are some expenses involved, such as purchasing DNA kits, postage for communications, traveling to meet clients and other operating essentials. Donations are heavily relied on to offset the cost of successfully reconnecting families. Our hope is to become a bonafide 501(c) Nonprofit Organization in 2020 and begin to procure Grant funding for our bigger vision of honoring Veterans and their Amerasian children. We cannot get there without your help!
Operation Expenses include:
- DNA Kits (typically $120 with shipping unless there are sales available)
- Cost of maintaining website (approx. $140 annually)
- Subscriptions to Ancestry and other locating services (approx. $600 annually)
- Administrative expenses for printing and shipping kits, etc. (we keep this very minimal, less than $10 per package)
- Travel expenses to work with individuals (typically fuel for meeting clients, less than $10 per trip)
We try to operate as digitally and paper-free as possible to keep expenses low and lessen our environmental footprint. We do not include internet access, computer and device equipment and phone service in our operating budget. Our volunteers spend countless hours doing research and reaching out to individuals for free.
