The 100% Participation Campaign
A two-week campaign from March 22 - April 3, 2021, supported by 45 of our founding nonprofit partner organizations and 30 celebrity ambassadors, Orphan Myth focused on the collective commitment to one big idea: it will take 100% of us to get 100% of children into a safe and loving family.
Through this campaign, Orphan Myth aimed to:
increase public awareness,
and gather resources
to enlarge the funnel of the public participation in family-based solutions for children separated from their families and those at risk of separating from family – both globally and in the United States.
Whether through a video message or a post on social media, each ambassador played a critical role in raising awareness about foster care and orphan care.
From Tiffany Haddish (Comedian/Actor), Ben Higgins (former star of The Bachelor and host of Hope Still Wins podcast), Lyric Ross (Actor in This Is Us), Ryder Allen (Actor in Justin Timberlake's film Palmer), and Luke Grimes (Actor in Yellowstone)
-- we are so grateful for their support.

After a few days together in Chicago and originally inspired by the work and mission of Hopeland, an Orphan Myth partner, both Fain and O'Neal wrote their song, "Hope," about the strength of vulnerable children in both the foster care system and orphanages around the world. Both Fain's and O'Neal's young daughters lent their voices to the song, as well as to the song's artwork.
As part of the campaign's commencement, world-renowned musicians and composers Tim Fain (concert violinist and composer featured in films such as Black Swan and Moonlight) and Sleeping At Last (moniker of Chicago-based singer-songwriter, producer, and composer, Ryan O'Neal) released a brand new song, with 100% of proceeds going toward Orphan Myth's 45+ charity partners for the first three months of its launch.
