Hey folks, today kicks off National Adoption Month, so it seemed fitting to kick off a few fundraisers too. I have 3 fundraisers starting today.
1. Scentsy. If you don't know what Scentsy is, you're missing out! It's a home show business that electric candles. They warm wax using a lightbulb and the scents are amazing! My friend Chrystle Woods sells Scentsy and has offered to donate her commission to our adoption fund! We will receive 25% of the sales in this "party". I'm keeping this fundraiser open until the end of the year. Makes for some great Christmas gifts, and you can donate to a good cause at the same time! To shop, just follow this link. Please share with your friends! If you don't want to shop online, let me know, I have some catalogs and order forms I can take your order with.
2. T-shirts! We're finally ordering tshirts! This is what the shirt will look like- we will have fitted and regular tshirts. The fitted shirts are $20 and are available in sizes XS-XL. The regular shirts are also $20 and available in children's XS-L and adults XS-XXXL. If you'd like to preorder you can leave a comment here, facebook me or email me (saragentry at gmail dot com). I'll take cash (if you're local), check or paypal (br616611 at yahoo dot com). Please let me know what cut and size shirt you want when you message me.
3. I got this idea from my friend who saw it as a fundraiser for another adoptive family. We'll be selling puzzle pieces for $5. If you buy a puzzle piece you'll be able to write a message on the back to our little girl and then when the puzzle is completed we'll put it together and frame it for her room. If you aren't local, you can still buy one and just let us write on it for you. This will be a nice keepsake for her to know that she had lots of people thinking about and praying for her before she even made it home!
If you're interested in buying a puzzle piece, let me know! If you're local, I can get with you to write your message. If you want us to write the message for you, we can do that as well.
Please continue to pray for our little girl, and for the adoption process as a whole. We're still working on home study paper work, but are getting closer to being able to start the home study. Continue to keep the Congo in your prayers too, elections are in a couple weeks and the violence and demonstrations are getting worse. Pray for safety for those involved and for a positive outcome for the election.
