March Is a Big Month!

Y'all… God is great and His people are good. They are so so good.  The generosity of others, whether it be their prayers, time, energy, stuff, finances… I am just blown away.  March has brought A LOT of opportunities for us to fundraise through very generous people.  Here are some fundraising opportunities:

First off, let's talk yard sale!  We will have our fundraising yard sale this coming Saturday, March 7 at 6-11 am. at 415 New Providence Way in Pike Road.  So many people have donated items, so much so we can hardly close the garage door and still have other things coming.

We are so blessed by our friends and family who donated so many things, and our Sunday School who is also donating their time to make signs, price and organize, haul the items, and work the yard sale.  We are also immensely grateful to our friends, Hudson and Brantley who have offered their yard, garage and time to allow us to use their yard for the sale.  This will be a neighborhood wide yard sale in the Providence neighborhood, so you can surely find something you like!

We also have three other shopping opportunities for those that feel so led to make a purchase to help with our adoption costs.

We have an awesome shirt for sale right here ---> Dorminey Adoption Tshirt
The way the t-shirt sale works is that we have 21 days to have 25 tshirt pledges.  Once we reach the goal of selling 25 tshirts, the tshirts will be printed and we can sell as many as we would like.  All tshirts will be delivered in about 14 business days after the final day of the fundraiser, which is March 21.  Approximately 40% of the sales go straight towards our adoption.

I have included a preview of the front here:

20% of profits at this Etsy shop go to our adoption ---> The Intentional Life
The Intentional Life is run by Karen Isbell. Karen went to school with Jerrod, and we are dear friends with much of her family.  Her Etsy shop features beautiful and creative art pieces.  Check it out!
Karen originally started her shop to benefit New Creation Home Orphanage and the Higher Ground Women's Rescue Home, organizations that keep women and children out of the sex trafficking industry in Kathmadu, Nepal.

Here is Karen pictures with her husband Bryan and two daughters, Ellie and Maggie.

A dear friend and independent consultant with Rodan+Fields, Leslie Word is offering 20% of profits of her sales in March to our adoption.  You can contact her for more information on their skincare products here --->
Jerrod and I met Leslie through church, where her husband Brian was the youth ministry director and they both started ONEFamily, a ministry at Frazer UMC that supports foster care and adoption.  Leslie sponsors an adoptive family every month and donates to their adoption costs from her sales.
Here is Leslie pictured with her family minus her newest addition, a little girl!

Once again, thank you so much to all of our friends and family for your support!!!
