Today's Speaker:
Mary Schneider introduced us to The Reel Project, which provides professionally produced videos of
children in foster homes awaiting adoption. The videos are shared at health events and with faith
communities, and are used by County and adoption agency workers to facilitate matching foster
children with potential parents. There are 1,000 foster children waiting for forever families in
Minnesota. The Reel Project promotes children ages 7 and up, but preserves privacy. They have videoed
311 kids in 263 reels at $600/reel. 149 kids have been matched with adopting parents so far.
