HELP AN ORPHAN AND A SINGLE MOTHER!!! James 1:27 style!
Alida here. I am friend of two 2 very terrific families in need. One is my friend Stacy Richards. They are adopting their 5th beautiful babe from China and have only 2 short months to raise up around $10,000 needed to bring him home to his forever family. http://mycupoverfloweth.blogspot.com/ The Second is a friend Laseanda. W. that is a single hardworking mom/ veteran that loves serving others. She desperately needs a vehicle for her and her son.
We are trying to do a fundraiser to raise money to meet the needs of both families. We are looking for things like gift cards, gift certificates, CD's, DVD's, New or near new books and/or other items people would really want.. things that could be sold on Ebay, they even did an Ipad raffle before. Homeschooling items, anything of value is welcomed. Get any gifts that aren't your style? Donate them for good! Do you have a business or home business? Know of a company or people who would want to help? Do you make things like clothes, accessories, diapers, slings, aprons skirts etc?? Things like an item or gift card/certificate from WHATEVER type of business you have would be greatly appreciated. We'd also welcome any donation from HOME businesses Like Etsy, Ebay businesses, Pampered chef, tupperware, melaluca, shaklee, cookie lee, discovery toys, etc. Now you can bless a family with an item or certificate and promote your business at the same time! If nothing else, check out their family blog and donate if you feel led and pass it on to others. Stay Tuned for at MY blog for what is available!!! Please keep them in prayer in the upcoming months! If you'd like to get the kids involved you could do a bake sale, lemonade stand, recycle cans, collect change in baby bottles car wash etc and donate the proceeds! It's the summer and kids love helping others!
