NEW YORK — Jen Lilley, the actress who has become the face of the Hallmark Channel, is now the nation’s leading celebrity foster-care advocate.

Lilley, herself, is a parent of two sons through foster care.

On May 1st to mark the beginning of National Foster Care Month, Lilley is partnering with the foundation Project Orphans to establish a neighborhood here in the U.S. to give orphans and children in foster care safe and loving homes, with a focus on permanency and adoption.

To raise awareness and funds for Project Orphans, Lilley launched the #VoicesThatGive contest, an opportunity to give creators from virtually all walks of life including singers and actors a chance to win the grand prize of $10,000, a walk-on roll on Hallmark Channel’s hit series “When Hope Calls” and much more.

She spoke to PIX11 about foster care and how people can enter the contest.
