How much do two trips to Ethiopia cost, you ask? About $2,500 per round trip ticket. Yikes! We are confident, though, that God will provide the funds we need to travel to our baby girl. With that said, we are excited to announce several upcoming fundraising opportunities:
1. We still have about 35 Simply Love t-shirts (mostly sizes L and XL, but a few Smalls and Mediums). They come in 3 fabulous designs and 4 different colors, and are so, so comfy! The shirts are $25 and you can order on our blog or contact me personally!
2. We want our little giraffe to know that so many people love her and helped to bring her home. So, we are doing a puzzle piece fundraiser. You can buy a piece of this 350 piece puzzle for $10, and your name will be written on the back of the piece that you purchase. When the puzzle is complete, we will display it in a double-sided frame so that Safiya can see who all was (and is!) a piece of her adoption story. You can purchase a piece of Safiya's adoption puzzle under the "Puzzle" link of our blog!
3. I'm putting my creative skills to use for this one: I will be designing, painting and selling wooden letters and names for kids' rooms. You pick your colors and patterns, and I'll do the rest! Letters are $7 apiece, and shipping is available. You can order on my Etsy website: https://www.etsy.com/listing/108539752/hand-painted-letters . Click on "Send a message to shop owner" to personalize your letters!
4. My cousin, Samantha, is hosting an online 31 fundraiser party for our adoption! 20% of all sales will benefit our adoption, and there are some awesome new products on their Fall line! You can check out the party at: http://www.mythirtyone.com/shop/catalog.aspx?eventId=E2097456&from=DIRECTLINK&verify=true
Also, look for an announcement (soon!) about a 31 party that we will be hosting at my mom's house later this month!
