Although not officially signed up to the project (which I affectionately refer to as The Orphanage), I do participate in de-orphaning pages which I think is an important part of improving Wikipedia. If every active editor de-orphaned just one page per week, we would not need such a project.

To de-orphan an article, just add meaningful links to it, using this:
Adding link to orphaned article, Wikiproject Orphanage: [[WP:ORPHAN|You can help!]] your edit summary for each linked article, and this:
Successfully de-orphaned! Wikiproject Orphanage: [[WP:ORPHAN|You can help!]] your edit summary when you remove the orphan tag.

Give an Orphan a family today, you know it makes sense.

there is no sign[1] of a grave:

"You'll come and find the place where I am lying,
And kneel and say an Ave there for me;
And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me,
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be,
For you will bend and tell me that you love me,
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me."[1]
