We are sending you our thanksgiving love to you all. We are so grateful for the @asenseofhomeorg community and for one another. This little team changes lives everyday all the while preparing for chapters in other cities. We couldn’t do it without the powerful love that the community shares with us every day and that which enveloped us at our gala last week. We are still floating from the outpouring and the raw humanity expressed through ever single element of the experience at last Thursday’s gala. We are wishing you all a loving & fulfilling day of thanks with your favorite people. ❤️🙌🙏 #homethrivelove ...

One of our favorite moments of the unforgettable night we shared was when Michelle Rodriguez, Tobey Maguire, and Sarah Gilbert gave so much love and praise to the amazing recipients of #ASenseofHome — Johna, Chy, Michelle, and Elizabeth. Each of these amazing young women had an important role to play in our magical and deeply moving gala. The astonishingly talented, Johna bared it all in a brilliant spoken word poem. Thank you Johna for performing your heart out. We hope you soaked up the love of all gathered. Chy bravely defied her stage fright to share one of her exquisite poems that touched our souls. We will never ever forget how their courage, talent, hearts, wisdom, and bravery moved us to the core.

We thank all of the very generous and chic sponsors of last night @ruggable @moethennessy @thecaviarco @dovetailfurniture @gilbert_films @cadogantate @annenbergfdn @curateur @lorenstewart @theouai @saint.owen @_littlesaints @osea

For two decades and as adoptive parents, Deborra-Lee and @thehughjackman have dedicated their philanthropic efforts, time, talent, and energy toward children in foster care💓. Deborra-Lee co-founded Hopeland, in NYC — which is a global platform to mobilize and influence leaders across government, business, and civil society, to create innovative solutions and policies to ensure children belong in a safe loving home. In Australia, Deborra-Lee founded @adoptchangeau which works toward every child in Australia growing up in a safe, nurturing, and permanent family home🏠. Hugh Jackman, as we all know, is an Academy Award-nominated, Golden Globe- and Tony Award-winning performer. He also serves on the board of the organizations Deborra-Lee founded and together, they work tirelessly in efforts to create greater equity, peace🕊, and justice for children😊. For her work, Deborra-Lee has received numerous honors such as the Order of Australia from the Queen, the United Nations Women for Peace Leadership Award, and the Women's Advocacy Award from the US Congress. And guess what? Deborra-Lee and Hugh are supporting the efforts of #ASenseofHome launching in NYC! Deb, Hugh, and their team at Hopeland will throw all of their passion and support behind A Sense of Home so that the chapter in NYC thrives just as it has thrived here in LA🙌!

For this reason and for all of the good that they do in their work, we are very proud to honor them TONIGHT. You too can help make a difference😀! After 3 years of having no fundraising events during the pandemic, we are so excited to gather, celebrate, and ensure we raise funds for the upcoming year. The need couldn’t be greater as we prepare to scale to new cities and expand services in LA😀🙌! Join us! Donate! Click the fundraiser button on our profile page to donate and please help share our amazing mission with others!
