So I've been researching fund-raising ideas and I'm totally overwhelmed by how many options are out there!! I found a pretty interesting one though at www.147millionorphans.com . It's a ministry that helps raise awareness about orphans and also helps families raising money for their own adoptions. The shirts are really cool and their mission is incredibly moving. If you have a chance to head over and check it out, let me know what you think. We'd have to sell at least 20 shirts/necklaces in order to participate so let me know if you think you'd be interested in getting one.
Plans for the garage sale continue. We already have our guest room partially full and have a few more people promising donations. We're still working on a place to hold it. Our neighborood is tucked back off of the main road so we're trying to find something with a little more traffic. Please get in touch with me if you have any items you would like to donate.
Two other fund-raisers we are working on are a spaghetti dinner and a poker tournament. Those will probably have to wait until December, January or even Feburary though. Still it feels like things are starting to move along. It's still a little overwhelming when I look over at the little widget on the side. (Did you notice the fancy new thermometer??) Can't wait to watch that start to move up! :-)
I'll post again soon!
