The "Fun" of Fun-draising!

As I mentioned in my last post, we have a few fundraisers planned in the next few weeks to help us pay for the upfront costs of our adoption. Our goals is to pay for and complete our home study in the next couple of months. Here's the fundraisers as well as suggestions for how YOU can participate with us!!

Fundraiser #1: Garage Sale
Our awesome friends the Hoffmans are hosting a garage sale for us on Sept. 4th & 5th.

If you live locally and would like to donate items to our sale, you can email me and arrange for pick-up or drop-off of items.

If you are not local but would still like to donate items for us to sell on craig's list or ebay, please email me and let me know.

Please pray for good weather and lots of traffic! : )


Fundraiser #2: Tshirts

We are super excited about this one! We personally LOVE the shirts we have designed and think you will, too! As soon as the artwork is finalized, I will post it here. These shirts will be available to purchase on this blog using paypal or by contacting me directly. I am hoping you will want one just because they are cute, but I also hope you will buy one and wear it with pride, shining light on the mission of God's redemption through adoption to those around you.

I will have more details in a few days, so stay tuned.


Fundraiser #3: Online Raffle
We will be raffling off an ipod touch. Tickets will be $5 a piece, or 5 for $20. Tickets will be available for purchase on this blog or by contacting me directly.

If you would be willing to help us sell raffle tickets, we would mail tickets to you to sell to your friends, coworkers and neighbors. It's all for a good cause, and who couldn't use an ipod?! If you are willing to help in this way, please email me and let me know. We are asking that you set a goal to sell 25 tickets. (The person who sells the most tickets will get a FREE tshirt!!) We will send you a packet of info including tickets, flyers/info on our adoption, and a self-addressed stamped envelope to mail your tickets and money back in.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So that's the plan! If you would like to participate in any of these fundraisers with us, please email me and let me know or post a comment below. Thanks!

Looking forward to reading more of your blog :-) Good luck with the fundraising! We just finished a yard sale this past weekend...did not do too bad with making some $$ and we got rid of a lot of stuff so that felt great.

Blessings, Amy

Hope that will help some.
