Well we are diving in with both feet and starting our adoption fundraising! Our goal is to raise $10,000 for our adoption (overall cost estimated to be $25,000) and $10,000 to donate to an African orphanage. One way we are fundraising is by selling t shirts. We decided to start with these fun shirts, for not just adoption fundraiser but for adoption awareness.
The front of the shirt says "4 million minus 1" because we are adopting from Ethiopia and there are 4 million orphans located in just Ethiopia alone. And while one less may not seem like a lot, it takes caring for one at a time!
Lastly we wanted to include this verse - "I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you. John 14:18"
T shirts can be purchased by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Shirts are $12 for adult sizes and $10 for youth shirts. There is a $2 shipping fee for anyone outside the Harrisionburg VA, California MO, and Jefferson City MO areas. We accept Check, Cash, and Pay Pal payment forms. Please include an address, sizes, quantities, and payment plans in your email.
If you were to feel led to give a donation to our adoption there is a tax deductible form through America World Adoption Agency. You can follow this link https://www.awaa.org/forms/payment.aspx click the donation tab and put our full name in the notes.
We are excited for the child God has for us and thank you for going on this journey with us. We know it will be a long road and are thankful to have all of you to go on the journey with us!
