The Green Family

Story #2
Air Date: July 10, 2013

Ben and Kim Green of Michigan couldn’t have children of their own so they started adopting. They adopted children from poverty-stricken backgrounds, babies conceived in rapes, and kids who were considered “unadoptable” due to having special needs or special circumstances. They are now proud parents of 12 adopted children.

The Green’s don’t have a lot of the luxuries a lot of people choose to have, but they have chosen to invest in the well-being of kids through adoption.

“5-hour ENERGY® Helps Amazing People” visited the Green family to surprise them with $50,000. With the surprise, the Green’s are considering the adoption of additional kids.

Since our visit with the Green Family, Josiah passed away in his mother Kim’s arms.

    Love to this family & many many blessings! I see so much beauty in this couples love. Maybe get them on the ‘super home makeover show’ for their work?

    I cried watching this. I, too, have a similar story. My parents adopted me and 7 other children because of different special needs. Mine was just based on circumstances of abuse and neglect. But I have adopted Down Syndrome siblings with disabilities ranging from epilepsy to autism and more.

    THANK YOU Green family for knowing the worth of children. For knowing that no matter what they deserve a loving family.

    May God bless you abundantly and know you will be in my family’s prayers.

    I just wanted to tell you how very impressed I am with what you are doing. I watched the video on the Green family and what they do is awesome, very special and very few out there could or would take on such commitments.

    I’ve always liked 5 hour energy and now I am even happier to keep buying your drink.

    Speechless, indeed. It is amazing how great the couple is with a truly loving heart for these kids. Really inspiring couple, indeed. Thanks 5 Hour Energy for helping such truly deserving people.

    As a store manager of one of Mr. Green’s accounts, I must say that he is always the consummate professional. He doesn’t bring up his family unless I ask, and doesn’t use his situation to solicit sales. Proud to be acquainted to and inspired by Ben and his family.
