Yesterday I posted about the Recycle Love Campaign and how it can help our friend's the Habuda's. Well... Lindsey, from Africa Bound Andrews sent me a message on Facebook to let me know that John and I could jump on board this campaign and try and sell some shirts to raise money for our adoption too.
I feel very torn about this. I think it is an amazing idea and John and I definitely could use some fundraising help BUT I do not want to steal the thunder from Matt and Sarah. I really want to help spread the word for them and help them sell some shirts.
I know that Lindsey is planning to feature John and I on her blog tomorrow and I think that is awesome. I would honestly be happy just to be featured, which might lead to some new people reading the blog and hearing the incredible story God is writing for us through this adoption.
If any of my bloggy friends want to participate in the Recycle Love Program, please buy a shirt for the Habuda's....I really, really want to help them out. God has provided in such amazing ways for John and I, and even though we still have money to raise, I have no doubt that He will provide.
So...tomorrow is the big day and you can start buying shirts. Here is some basic information about how it will work.....I plan to order mine first thing! Make sure you include "Habuda" in the memo line so that Matt and Sarah get the funds.
1.) The tees are $24.95 each. $4.95 covers shipping and $10 goes to the adoptive family of your choice. Remember that the family that sells the most tees will receive an additional $500.00! You can order t-shirts here.
2.) The Recycle Love campaign will run from tomorrow until February 18th. We will compile the list of purchases and order the tees after the close of business on the 18th of February and tees will be mailed 1-2 weeks after that.
3.) We are NOT limited to only helping families that we've highlighted here on the blog and Facebook. You can email us your family or a family that you want to advocate for at our address: firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us their name, blog/web address, a little of their story and what agency they are using. We will continue to highlight families each day for every day of the campaign.
4.) As you spread the word, please let people know to place the family name you want to proceeds to benefit to be placed in the memo line of the paypal memo.
5.) Please lift us up in prayer! For stamina, awareness, communication and above all else that God the Father will be glorified!
