Spread the word and help make a difference!

This is just too awesome not to share. Put it on your blogs, put it on Facebook, stamp it on your forehead. Help make a difference.

(The following is from my awesome friend Leslie's blog)

Leslie is a one of a kind type of girl and I absolutely adore her. She has teamed up with the incredible Sarah from Sarah's Coventant Home and boy God was not playing games when He brought these 2 amazing ladies together. Check them out and be inspired. Their hearts will move you and their examples will change you forever...

So, as most of you know, India is a country that is near and dear to my heart. In January, I'll be travelling with a group to Andhra Pradesh to volunteer at Sarah's Covenant Homes. If you haven't met Sarah, then you should! She is one of the most amazing, dynamic, selfless, funny, and giving people I've ever come across. Not only does she have a heart for India, but she has a heart for abandoned children who have special needs.

Currently, Sarah has 44 children and she's taking in 10 new children next week. Can you imagine the cost of parenting 54 kids?? We're trying to raise money to help make things a bit easier on Sarah and her kids.

SCH has only been up and running for about 2 years now. So they're still needing lots of stuff: wheelchairs, strollers, walkers, educational toys, clothes, and school supplies. 11 of us will be travelling to Sarah's in January and we can take 2 suitcases each. Let's fill those babies up!

To help raise money to buy supplies for Sarah's Covenant Homes, we're holding a bake sale and raffle on Saturday, November 14 at a local grocery store. You do not have to be present to win. Which means YOU can buy a ticket and help bring supplies to Sarah and her 54 amazing kids.

Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. If you make a ticket donation (at the ChipIn button on the top right of this blog), we'll enter your name into a drawing where you'll have the chance to win one of the following prizes:

1st Prize: New Wilson NFL Game Ball Autographed by Emmitt Smith (retail value: $350)

2nd Prize: iPod Touch 16 gb Second Generation (retail value: $229)

3rd Prize: Nintendo Wii (retail value: $199.99)

The drawing will be held at 2:00pm on November 14th and all winners will be notified via phone or email by 5:00pm that evening. Prizes will be delivered or mailed out on Monday, November 16.

We hope you'll help us reach our goal of raising $1500 for Sarah's Covenant Homes. To learn more about Sarah, please visit her BLOG. You can also read the profiles of all her kids and learn about sponsorship opportunities by clicking HERE. I'm also going to leave you with a video that we made to help spread awareness of SCH and the wonderful kids that have touched our lives. Enjoy

Oh! I wish I could go volunteer there too... That is a dream of mine. Family mission trip. Why is it that those who really want to go can't seem to afford it :0)
