We have a lot of fundraisers coming up.
Our t-shirts will be here in a month or so, they are $20 and you can pre-order them right now. If you're local, you can go by Pal's Coffee + Company in the mall and pre-order there. If you aren't able to get to Pal's, you can mail me a check and I'll make sure the size/fit you want is saved for you! You can contact me through Facebook, or leave a message on this blog post with your email and I'll get in touch with you about how to buy a shirt.
At the end of April we're hosting our 2nd online Adoption Auction. Our 1st auction raised $900, so our goal with this auction is to break $1,000. We already have over 30 items donated and would LOVE to get some more donations in before the auction starts at the end of the month. If you're interested in donating something, let me know! The auction will take place on Facebook, and you can join the fun right here :)
This summer we'll be hosting a benefit concert. So far we have one act scheduled to play, but are looking for 2-4 more artists/musicians/singers/etc to play, so if you or anyone you know is good at those things, and has time to spare for one Saturday night in June, let me know. That night our t-shirts will be for sale, as well as some yummy baked goods and handcrafted Pinterest projects ;)
We're hoping to be featured on Give1Save1.com sometime this summer. A friend of our's is working on our video to submit with our application, which you'll be able to see if/when we're featured. The premise of the website is that everyone can afford to give $1 to help save 1 child. It's a fantastic website, run by a family who is currently in the process of adopting themselves, but started this website to help others adopt too. So awesome.
We're also looking into a few different local eateries who will host fundraising nights. We'll keep you updated on that!
Last thing- we are applying for a grant from Show Hope. We had a miscommunication with our agency that we thought might be a huge setback, but we got it figured out and should still have the application in by the deadline (April 30th). There is a 90 day minimum wait period after the deadline, so we won't know if we're awarded any grant money for a while.
So, that's it on the fundraising front. Lots going on! It's exciting that we're starting to see things come together a little bit. Please keep us and our little girl in your prayers, along with all of our fundraisers coming up.
