Help Our Friends! Give 1 Save 1

Can you spare a $1 for a really great cause?? Of course you can! Most of us can give more than a buck. Read the details below on how you can help our friends Clint and Kathleen raise money for their Congo adoption.They are being featured on the Give 1 Save 1 website this week. I totally stole this word for word from Kathleen's blog. Here are the details of the Give 1 Save 1 Campaign. You can donate your dollar (or more) here


Every Monday i’m going to ask you for a dollar. i’m going to tell you who it’s going to and what it’s being used for. we’re mostly funding African adoption for the people, by the people. we’re just going to rain down a crazy blessing on a family, organization, orphanage, or project and we’re going to do it every week. we’re going to get huge. and the world will be changed for lots of people because of your generosity. that sounds exciting, doesn’t it?! let’s do it.
i’ll tell you who we’re sponsoring and where to send your dollar. you’ll need a paypal account to play. if you don’t have a paypal account, you just need one. it’s time. so go ahead and set one up and meet me back here. i’ll link a button to the paypal account that we’ll be blasting. then once you’ve donated your dollar spread the word to get some more dollars in here. if you have a voice, an email account, a blog, a facebook page, a twitter account or a pinboard USE IT! the only way we can make a big difference is to make it viral!

and your dollar will be saving and restoring lives in all kinds of ways. in Ethiopia one in six children don’t live to be five years old. there is a desperate need for basic food, clean water, and medicine. removing a child from an orphanage gives that child a family and a future, something everyone needs. it also frees up a bed in an orphanage for a street child. your dollar will change lives and save lives in ways you may never know.


  1. Hi Jennifer! I could not find any contact information for you (email), but I wanted to ask you a question about the adoption process. My husband and I are considering Ethiopia as our country to adopt from, and I noticed your husband has Crohn's Disease. I have Crohn's Disease and was wondering if there were any hurdles because of it? My email is faithhopelove20 AT gmail DOT com, if you wouldn't mind letting me know.

    And thank you for spreading the word about Save 1 Give 1! I had never heard of them, but I'm now a subscriber! What a wonderful concept!

  2. Very cool! I'm a big fan of Give 1 Save 1 - what a great program! Thanks for getting the word out! 30,000 people giving $1 a week! This adoption community can totally reach that goal! - Lindsay (
