ONE CHILD AT A TIME
KEEP CHANGING THEIR WORLDS
We are a little less than one cow short ($890) of meeting the goal of raising $5600!
While we will continue to advocate for the funds necessary to complete this project, the Christmas Trees of Glory fundraiser will end on December 18th (that will allow us enough time to deliver any cards that are ordered by Christmas).
So, if you've got a couple of last minute gifts you still need to find or just feel led to donate to a worthy cause this Christmas season, know that your donation is helping to provide hope to kids like Dege and Meseret and nearly 100 other kids at Trees of Glory.
Make a donation at http://www.hopechest.org/ (go to the site, click on the orange GIVE button on the far right side at the top of the home page)
Under "Gift Information," click on "choose a fund" and select "designated gifts"
Then write in your gift amount (if you're giving gift cards to more than one person, just add up the total amount to be given and write it in the blank, then when you email me, just clarify the number of total gift cards needed-that will save you from having to make multiple donations)
Then (this is the important part) under the "notes field" be sure to add in the Trees of Glory Livestock Fund code which is "ET2119000 LIVESTOCK."
Finally, add in your info and follow the prompts to complete your donation.
Once you complete your donation, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your donation amount, your mailing address and the number of gift cards that you need and we'll send it out to you within the next few days. So that we are able to get the cards to you before Christmas, please make all donations prior to December 18th. If we have not met our goal by then, we will continue fundraising through other avenues, but the gift cards will no longer be sent.
I know that's a lot of information all at once. If you have any questions, please email me.
I'd also love for you to send me a comment if you are planning on posting this information on your blog or other outlet just so I can have an idea of who's participating. Feel free to copy any information posted here and encourage your blog readers to post it on their blogs so that we can reach as many readers as possible.
You can be creative in your advocating and even do other fundraisers of your own (ie. bake sales, garage sales, raffles....) to raise funds. The goal is to raise all of the funds. How we do it makes no difference.
I've been praying about this fund raiser for several weeks and my biggest prayer is that God will work in amazing ways and that all glory will be His.
Let's be the hope for these kids this Christmas!!!!!
I mentioned that this Christmas season, our family wants to change our traditions to focus on giving gifts to Jesus for His birthday, not just to each other. This is one great way that you can make your gift giving a little more meaningful by giving back to a cause that is close to the Father's heart.
