We always knew how amazing Adam was, but we never fully understood how many people he positively impacted. When we posted Adam’s story to our website, it was shared and reposted by hundreds of people who loved Adam dearly. In fact, it became the most-read blog entry we’ve ever posted.

Many of you have asked to donate to our work in honor of Adam. After speaking with members of Adam’s family, we have opened up this page as a way for you to do that. Gifts made in honor of Adam through this page will go to support teachers who have fled from the war in Sudan and desire to educate the 25,000+ children who have fled to refugee camps in South Sudan. Adam’s legacy can now help impact an entire generation:

We do ask that when you give you select the “In Memory of Option” and let us know how Adam impacted your life. We would love to hear and share with one another how he impacted each of us.

From all of us here at OBS, we bid farewell to our friend, our brother, and our hero. Adam, we will keep working hard to make the world a better place for everyone.
