Recycling Our Love & Giving Back to YOU!

I would love to be able to tell you that our BIG announcement today is that we are adopting again. It isn't. Not yet anyway. And I don't know that would be a "big" announcement anyways. :)

My biggest question that I am asked about our adoption is the financial aspect. When we came back from ET, the hubby and I both felt like we were supposed to be helping other families navigate through the fundraising part of their adoption process. So this Valentine's Day, we are "Recycling Love" for adoptive families. We are wanting to spotlight other adoptive families, help them bring their children home, and helping you raise some money.
Here is how it will work:
1.) Contact us through email. Let us know your name, website/blogspot, Adoption Agency name and email address. And tell us a little about your story.
2.) Copy our button and twitter, facebook, blog, email your friends and family and send them back here to order tees for YOUR adoption. Make sure that in order to credit for you, that the purchaser adds your family name into the memo line. Each tee will be priced at $24.95. $10.00 of each sale will directly benefit YOUR adoptive family. We will provide two colors, white and black as printed above and the back of each shirt will be printed with "Life's most urgent questions is this: What are you doing for others?" ~MLK. We will have unisex and kid's sizes.
3.) By this Friday, we will have posted on the side of our blog the order form for our Tees. And then you can Order. Order. Order AWAY! The first 3 families who respond by email, starting today, will be highlighted on the blog, one a day through Friday, detailing their story. '
4.) But here is the best part...the top selling family will earn themselves a $500 bonus!!!!!!
5.) The "Recycle Love" event will run through February 14th, 2011. You have one month to spread the word, and rack up your sales. While our family does not yet feel the Lord pushing us toward our next adoption, we DO feel Him pushing us to help you with yours!
