Fundraising is something that is very difficult for me. As most of you know I am in sales and have a marketing degree so asking people to spend money isn't too hard for me...when it's my job and I have a product in exchange. Adoption fundraising is tough! I feel like I am asking people to give me money and I have nothing to give in return. However my heart has realized something: this is the ultimate in advertising!
Reece's Rainbow doesn't have much (if any) budget for advertising. Essentially they rely on adoptive families to do it for them through blogging, t-shirt sales, garage sales, auctions, etc.
God calls His followers over and over to care for His orphans and widows. The statistics are amazing....if 10% of American families who call themselves Christians would adopt 1 child this year we would give more than 1 million orphans homes. What a calling! What a cause to fundraise for!
So we will fundraise. My prayer is that each of you will consider the things we do for fundraisers and maybe give up a cup of coffee to help us out if you feel compelled. If you want to help another RR kid please do so! I don't want to limit your ability to help God's children! How about these cuties?
Phoebe: One of my favorites. She is beautiful!
Vilis: Has a HUGE grant right now, and is part of RR's 555 Warrior Project. The goal is to raise another $5,000 for him!
How I wish I could add them to my family. But if one of you, my wonderful readers, decides to bring them home I commit to help you fundraise!
