Welcome to our Page!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our page and be part of this special project. Hugs for Romania is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the support and giving of charity to orphanages in Romania. Hopefully you’re here because, like us, you care deeply about helping those less fortunate around the world. Or maybe you’re here because you’re curious as to what Hugs For Romania is all about and want to learn more about our cause. Whatever your reason, we’re glad you’re here and within these pages hopefully you’ll find what you’re looking for.


Although we’re a young organization, we’re extremely passionate about making a difference and changing the world. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the lives of those around us and we’ve started, as our name suggests, in Romania. Why Romania? The short answer is, why not? Romania is simply where founder, James Slaton, happened to be when he decided he wanted to make the world a better place. As for the long answer? Well, we think you’ll find at least some of the explanation within these pages. But the work we’re doing in Romania needs to be done all over the world. Hopefully one day we can transform Hugs for Romania into Hugs for The World.

But first, we’re starting small - think globally, act locally, right? So far we’ve partnered Project Romanian Rescue, located in Constanta, Romania. Please explore our site and discover the great things we’re doing for yourself . You can learn more about who we are and our mission in the “about us” section. We’re currently in the process of updating our website, so check back soon as we'll have more content up. Thank you for your visit!
