God has been so good to us and has provided funds, lots of prayers, new friends that we have been able to share his story with and many many more blessings!! We are so fired up for this adoption journey that God has entrusted us on!! The more I talk about it the more excited that I get just knowing that we are saving 1 orphan and bringing he or she into our lives to share the great news of our Almighty God!!!
O.k so, now that we are up to "Jesus Speed" it is time to raise some money!! We were contacted a few days ago by Lifesong. A fabulous non profit that helps provide grants to families that are adopting! We were so blessed to find out that they would provide us with a match dollar for dollar grant for $2500.00!!!! Wow!! So what does that mean, we need to raise $2500.00 and send to Lifesong, then they will match it and $5,000.00 will go towards our adoption fund! What a huge blessing that is!! And too, it is tax deductible!! Double blessing!!! Come on guys, help us out to bring this sweet baby home from China!!!
Do you know what is better than that, Ordinary Hero is also having a grant contest for the next 9 days and if you purchase something from their store and choose my name in the affiliate drop down box, we will get 40% of the total sales and we could be in the running for top prize which is another grant for $500.00!! So here is the breakdown.
Lifesong matching grant for $2500.00 - when it is matched, $5,000.00 will be applied towards our adoption fund!!
Ordinary Hero - Purchase apparel or other fun items, we will get 40% of sales and could possible win a grant for $500.00. Ordinary Hero will mail total profit to Lifesong to help match dollar for dollar the grant. So, this way, you get a great shirt or other item, our adoption fund will receive $5,000 or maybe more funds to go towards our adoption fund!! This contest will end on January 22nd!!!
