Our first fundraiser, a Green For Gold party, was more successful than we had expected. It was so much fun to see the look on people's faces when they realized how much their gold was worth. It was also a great way to include our family and so many friends in this Journey. We placed a basket and envelopes on the table, along with the cutest piggy bank. Our guests were able to sell their gold and decide for themselves if they wished to donate. As the hosts of the party, we also received 15% of all sales. Our guests were very generous, and we have had many others who could not attend send donations for our adoption fund. We are almost halfway to raising our next fees!
Our next fundraising adventure will be a huge yard sale, which we are planning for April. We have put the word out for donation of items, and we will be gathering items soon. We hope to raise as much or more from the yard sale as we did with the gold party.
Adoption funds are hard to come by, and we feel so blessed to have so many of our friends, family, and church family step in and offer support. Our Journey continues, and we will have more updates in the coming weeks!
