Coffee and t-shirts and candy....Oh My!!

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 . 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!


  1. I haven't looked at the site, but go ahead and count on us for two tshirts, necklaces, or whatever it is you may sell! Also, I have a few small things for your garage sale...I'll try to remember them in one of the following weeks, and just bring it to church with me. Let me know what weekend you set the garage sale, I may be able to help. Also, I have a friend who sells 31 Gifts (Proverbs 31 - monogrammed bags, gifts, etc), and she is offering to give up her commission for your fundraising event! I am willing to host it for you, if you can help me with a guest list! Let's chat!!

  2. I love the website! I would definitely buy a necklace or two or maybe a shirt! I have an idea for another fundraiser that I wanted to talk to you about. I was going to come over yesterday but Jed was gone for most of the day helping his brother buy a boat. We can talk at small group thouigh! See ya then!

  3. Laine - boys and their toys! DJ ended up coming home early so our "girls day" ended around 5 :-) I'll get all the information together for the shirts and we can chat on Thursday. Can't wait to hear your idea!
    Elizabeth - definately interested in the 31 party. How generous of your friend!! We'll have to find a date that works.
    Still waiting to hear about the garage sale date. It will probably be the 1st or 2nd weekeend in November.
