A Weekend of Love...Recycle It!

When we were starting our adoption process, one of our biggest concerns was the looming financial obligations. We were terrified. It is also one of the most often asked questions we get about our adoption process. It was also an area that we knew we were going to end up helping other families with after we were home.

It was one of our biggest reasons for our Recycle Love campaign. Since we know that every little bit helps, we went through our treasure trove this weekend and have come up with a fun way for families to be supported and earn some extra money for their adoption process.

Here is how it works. From now until Monday at noon, every t-shirt that is purchased will provide $10 to the adoptive family who is designated in the memo line, just like normal. BUT...each tee will also provide that family 1 entry into our giveaway. On Monday at noon, we will tally the sales from Sat, Sun and Monday and the family that sold the most shirts will win ALL of the following:

A brand new copy of "Half the Sky" which is an amazing insight into how reversing female oppression can change the world.
A brand new copy of "Fields of the Fatherless" by Tom Davis, who just so happens to be one of my favorite authors.

2 brand new Ugandan paper bead necklaces!

A stunning hand beaded bracelet made by women who were rescued from trafficking and sponsored by The Beautiful Dream Society in Lesotho, Africa.

A handmade Hope Hat!

This one-of-a-kind Kids' Large (14-16) tee that the hubby and his artist were goofing with and printed

And a green, Adult Large ringer tee that was part of the first fundraising shirts we did for our adoption. It has John 14:18 across the back "I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you."

We hope this is just one more opportunity that we can help our families earn some extra cash. Or who knows, maybe that will share with YOU!

So go, buy a tee, put in the instruction line of what family you are supporting and enter them for some more opportunities to win some free stuff!
Have a great weekend and let's continue to Recycle our Love!
