I am sooooooo excited about what I'm going to share with you today! It's my version of March Madness!! I may be crazy to think it can be done but I've decided to LOVE BIG and go for it anyway!
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about my "take away" from my mission trip last year. Part of what I didn't mention is that even as soon as I got back, I felt the Lord pressing on me to do what I am about to share with you. And while I blame a busy life for the delay, I also feel the Lord's timing is perfect, and that this, right now, is the perfect time. I read something Levi from Bring Love In wrote on their blog a few weeks ago as well, and let's just say--it was the "kick in the pants" I needed to launch.
Last year I raised approx $2500 for my mission trip. I decided I wanted to raise DOUBLE that amount to give to orphan care. And thus was born the
I am setting a goal to raise $6,000 during the month of March so I can give $1,000 each to 6 different needs, each addressing the orphan crisis in a different way. (Originally I planned to raise $5,000, but I'll explain why that changed in just a second.) Let me share with you first WHO I'm fundraising for, and then tell you HOW I plan to do it!
