As Easter Sunday is right around the corner, we are up to our eyeballs in plastic eggs… and that is a good thing! April’s new fundraiser is blowing up, and we now have to make another egg run. I have to give her props on this one, even though she borrowed it form someone else. As I can foresee a light night for our “special deliveries” this Saturday night, I am just grateful that we are not doing a sunrise service at CHC. As we are still awaiting the results and final tally of this fundraiser, I want to personally say thank you to each of you who have ordered some Egg Bombs. We truly hope that you enjoy this experience as much as we have.
Since the last blog update we have successfully completed our paperwork with the exception of one artifact. All that is left is to get this final piece certified and authenticated so we can send it to Holt and our dossier will be officially complete and ready to be logged in. Did I mention that we have paid our dossier processing fee in full?? That was a big step and a big relief. Now comes the big time push for funding.
As we are anxiously awaiting our match phone call we are doing all we can to make fundraisers available that are creative and useful. I wanted to remind you of a few fundraisers we are still doing and inform you of some others that are on the horizon.
- Canvas fundraiser - $10 donation and you pick the color and square you would like to have painted on our “Family” canvas for Primrose’s room. Below are some pictures of the canvas when we started, and where we are currently with it.
- Flip-Flop to Adopt – It is that time once again, you know Spring (I know that old man winter hasn’t given up just yet). This fund raiser will kick-off April 3rd. Be on the lookout on both our Facebook page and here on the blog for pictures of the flip-flops and prices.
- We are also selling cookbooks through our church’s orphan ministry 4theVoiceless. These cookbooks contain a variety of recipes that are multicultural and there are stories of adoption throughout. This cookbook is available through the ministry and we will benefit directly from the sales of the cookbooks as they are being used to create an adoption fund at our church. Click this link http://mad.ly/7bd553 for more information and you will have the option to order one. The cost of the cookbook is $12 plus shipping and handling.
- Last but not least, we will be having a garage sale in the next month or so. Details to come, but don’t worry if you do not live close by because some of the items will be on Facebook or Ebay and you will be able to buy them there. Stay tuned…
