Objectives:

Twelve In Twelve Projects:

The Twelve In Twelve Foundation has selected twelve organizations from the humanitarian travels of J.D. Lewis and his sons upon which to focus – raising awareness, funding, and supplies. The goal of the foundation is to help implement programs that will promote sustainability and long-term success.

Educational Programming:

We are currently developing an education program to be utilized by schools, community groups, andorganizations. This presentation will follow the travels of the Lewis family around the globe, teaching acombination of geography, history, global music and art, and world religions. J.D. Lewis is currently writing a book on his family’s journey in order to educate, promote and connect others to this project. In addition, a documentary of their journey is also in the process. The Lewis family continues to do educational speaking engagements across America.

Global Volunteer Network:

We have established a network of organizations throughout the world at which families and/or individuals can volunteer. Our goal is to establish an infrastructure to help aid in the planning, fundraising and execution of global humanitarian journeys. We wish to encourage others to embark on similar volun-tourism adventures.
