Over the past few days we have managed to pick up quite a few books to sell in our adoption fundraiser at the local homeschool book sale this week. We have made posters sharing that our goal is to adopt a baby! We have also labeled and priced the books. We have over four large totes of books. Will they sell? Did we price them right? Too high? Too low? Praying the Lord brings customers!
We have also continued to look for items to sell in our adoption fundraiser garage sale. We are hoping that someone will donate some items for it. I have posted on our local craigslist and “news” boards, but noone has had any donations at this time. 😦 We are offering to come and pick up any garage/yard sale leftovers, any items planned for Goodwill, etc. If you know of anyone that might have something, please let us know. We are trusting the Lord to provide the right items to sell and the right customers. The sale is in less than 2 weeks.
We have all of the application, consulting information, and family profile done now. Next step will be a homestudy. 😉
Today we started an account at youcaring.com for fundraising. We were told that this is a great way for people to help by donating online. Here is our address: http://www.youcaring.com/fundraiser_details?url=bennettfamilyadoptionfundraiser&fundraiser_id=3036
We’d love for you to stop by and check it out! It feels very strange having fundraisers to adopt a baby. In some ways it feels awkward “asking” if friends and family would like to join us in this walk, but we have been told over and over stories of how much people enjoy having a variety of ways to help out in the adoption process. So, we are continuing to walk…
