May 2018 | Our Month. One Voice. Many Stories.

 
May is Asian American and Pacific slander Heritage Month, a time to reflect on and celebrate the achievements and contributions made by generations to this country. We hope you will take time to find local and national events to attend and share your pride in the richness of our diversity. 
 
It's a perfect month to watch Operation Babylift: The Lost Children of Vietnam, our award-winning documentary that started it all. You can purchase a DVD for yourself, gift it to a friend or even license it for a public screening. We donate a portion of proceeds to benefit our supported orphanages in Vietnam, and the remainder goes to fund the operations of our non-profit, so we can put your dollars where they matter most. To purchase, visit www.TheBabylift.com

More than ever, it's our time to tell stories that matter. We are still in search of survivor stories for our documentary-in-production, Light of Day, which will give voice to another set of controversial and untold stories of domestic violence against Asian women and children. If you would like to share your story or donate to help us complete this important project, please contact us.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS 
Since the release of our documentary nearly a decade agp, we have had a passion to give back to the adoptee community. For the past several years, ATG has proudly granted thousands of dollars in culture/heritage camp scholarships, so that adoptees can attend camp and connect with their birth culture and adoptees around the country who share in their same unique experience.  To submit and win a $100 scholarship toward camp fees, check out our contest details and enter by July 1st!
AID UPDATE: VIETNAM 
In March, ATG distributed aid to 316 students from disadvantaged families of Triệu Phong, Hải Trường, Hải Thương and other school districts within the Quang Tri province of Vietnam. Gift packages included rice, school supplies and backpacks. We are so thankful to our donors and volunteers on the ground for helping us continue this important work to inspire the future generation. Help us give hope to these youth and donate today!
