Breaking Our Fundraising Promise…


Sorry….but we have another exciting announcement in the fundraising department….We are going to be the featured family the week of October 29th on Give1Save1!

I’ll post a little information about the whole amazing premise of the Give1Save1 community, but if you haven’t heard of it, you simply must go to their blog.  It is awesome.  And you will need a box of tissues because I guarantee you will be crying the ugly cry as you watch those videos.

In order for our week to succeed, we need your help. We’ll need help sharing the link to our video on Facebook or e-mailing it to your friends. We’ll need your help making our video go “viral”. And, if you’re not sick of supporting our fundraisers yet and want to give us $1, then we certainly wouldn’t complain.  I”ll start bugging you about it again when our date approaches.

Here’s a little bit of info I copied and pasted from Give1Save1’s Africa blog so you can read a bit more about what they do:

WHAT is Give1Save1???

Thanks so much for stopping by to give your hard earned dollar to someone that really needs it. That’s so nice of you. You’re pretty nice. I know it’s a recession. I know it’s hard to give right now. But everyone has a dollar. Join in and help
us  bring one home. Here’s what it’s all about:


Every Monday I’m going to ask you for a dollar. I’m going to tell you who it’s going to and what it’s being used for. We’re mostly funding adoption for the people, by the people.  We’re just going to rain down a crazy blessing on a family, organization, orphanage, or project and we’re going to do it every week. We’re going to get huge. And the world will be changed for lots of people because of your generosity. That sounds exciting, doesn’t it?! Let’s do it.

I’ll tell you who we’re sponsoring and where to send your dollar. You’ll need a paypal account to play. If you don’t have a Paypal account, you just need one. It’s time. So go ahead and set one up and meet me back here. I’ll link a button to the Paypal account that we’ll be blasting. Then once you’ve donated your dollar spread the word to get some more dollars in here. If you have a voice, an email account, a blog, a facebook page, a twitter account or a pinboard USE IT! The only way we can make a big difference is to make it viral!

And your dollar will be saving and restoring lives in all kinds of ways. Removing a child from an orphanage gives that child a family and a future, something everyone needs. It also frees up a bed in an orphanage for another orphan. Your dollar will change lives and save lives in ways you may never know.To help you can donate to the family of the week by clicking the donate tab to your left. Be sure to subscribe to the blog and you’ll get notifications of all posts. That way you won’t miss a family!
