A global charitable organization, the Retail Orphan Initiative dedicates itself to helping hundreds of millions of vulnerable children across the world. Focused on aiding orphans, this entity defines itself by three goals: Awareness, Encouragement, and Fundraising. It brings awareness to the needs and difficulties of youth who have been bereaved of their parents. The group encourages businesses to mentor foster children, inspire employees to become foster parents, and set up programs that make it easier for individuals to dedicate time to children in need. Finally, Retail Orphan Initiative conducts fundraising activities that collect money, food, and toys for youths. It also offers a “RoundUp for Orphans” program, in which companies ask customers to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar with the extra money going to the charity.
