What percentage of my donation goes to the cause?
100% of the profits we receive go directly to the cause. Currently, none of our founders or directors take a salary. All of the profits we raise through our fundraisers, events, and online donations go directly to the costs of the business and to the activities and surprises we set up for the children we work with. For a more detailed breakdown of where every penny goes, please feel free to view our financial activities here: Q1 2017 Financials
What do you guys do with the children?
We do a variety of different activities with the children we sponsor. Depending on the status of their health, we take them to events, teach them how to play instruments, and spend quality time with them in the hospital and at their homes with their families. We help to fuel their hobbies and passions while in their current state. Our big event each campaign is a surprise party we throw for each child where we unveil gifts we’ve collected for them throughout the campaign.
How long is a campaign?
Six weeks. If necessary campaigns may run longer.
How often do you sponsor a child?
Every three months. Time in between campaigns is used for fundraising, recruiting the next child, and planning the next campaign.
How can I submit my child or a child I know of to become a OAAT sponsored youth?
We love hearing new stories and are always on the lookout to sponsor new children! We are currently looking for a child in the Los Angeles area, but would still love to hear about any other little warriors out there. Fill out an application here: Youth Application
