A Giveaway!

I have some really cool friends. Some of them are rock star moms who are raising the next generation of warriors for justice and Jesus. Some of them have the gift of words and know exactly how to use them to bring healing, grace and truth. Take my friend Jody for example. Mama. Warrior. Advocate. Justice Junkie. Complete Rock Star. A few years back she and one of her buds got together and formed The Adventure Project, a non-profit dedicated to not just gifting money, but elevating people out of poverty by creating jobs.

They currently have a project to bring clean burning coal stoves to families in Haiti. Did you know that the number 1 killer of children under 5 in the developing world is smoke inhalation from open cooking fires? I didn't either. $20 provides one Haitian family a cooking stove. These stoves are made locally in Haiti and provide desperately needed jobs to Haitians. Also, the benefits to the family receiving the stoves are a reduction in resources, time and the number of trees that are cut down.

The Adventure Project has a desire to see $20,000 raised in the next 7 days to provide 1,000 stoves to families this quarter. Also, for every $60 raised, you are entered into a drawing for a free trip with The Adventure Project to Haiti. Ya'll know I love to travel.

Our little family has started a fundraising page and we want you to help. Click here and donate $20 toward our family goal and we'll draw for a free, signed copy of I Walk for Water, which is awesome because I have VERY few books left.

The drawing will be for the next 7 days and I'll have one of the kids draw a name next week.
