There are only TWO WEEKS left to RSVP for our Raising Hope fundraiser. We’re really hoping this event is going to be a success. Not just for our adoption, but because I want to hold this event yearly to raise money for other adopting families. However, things are looking a tad disappointing. Not many people are signing up. I really hope it’s just because we live in a little tiny town where everyone (including me) waits until the last minute to get things done. 🙂
Haven’t heard about the Raising Hope fundraiser yet?! Visit the Facebook page for it HERE. It’s a “date night” of sorts that we are hosting to raise money for our adoption. There will be live music, dancing, dinner, dessert, photography, and MUCH more. It’s going to be amazing. And tickets are only $30/couple. That’s less than you’d pay for a dinner out! (Without the music and awesome people!) 🙂
Please do us a favor and spread the word about this event. Invite your friends. Invite your family. Tickets would make a great gift to give a couple who needs a night out. We even have a few babysitters we can send your way if you need them.
We received our introduction packet in the mail today with some papers that need to be signed. When we send those papers back to the agency, we also need to send over $10,000 to get things started. We’ll be honest with you. It’s going to be tight to find all of that money so quickly without using up a good portion of our savings. It would be a huge blessing for this fundraiser to be a success so that we can start the home study process and still have money in case of emergency.
We’re not begging for money. We know without a doubt that God will provide the money if this is His will for us (and we believe it is). But we also believe that God uses others to accomplish His will. Maybe He wants to use your purchase of tickets to help us adopt a child.
