So the coolest thing happened...
My poor little Chip In for the Pass It Forward Adoption Fund was feeling really, really lonely lately. I admit, it was a little depressing because I hadn't seen it's numbers go up in quite some time.
A couple of months ago I wrote a check for $10,000 to the Riggs family (thank you all who helped with that!) for their adoption, and since then have been praying and asking God what now? We still have another $10,000 to raise to pass on to another family (or perhaps divide it between several families?) who are in the process of adopting. I have been throwing around several fundraising ideas- and plan on doing another fundraiser soon.
But just a couple of days ago, out of the blue, I noticed the donation amount climb $100!!! I was so excited- and sure enough a sweet lady whom I don't even know gave that generous amount.
But it gets even better- I checked her blog and she is going to be giving away a $50 gift card to someone who makes a donation to my Pass It Forward Adoption Fund OR to another family who is fundraising also. Their blog is http://babybeblessed.blogspot.com/.
Seriously- does it get any cooler than that?
All you have to do is make a donation and your name will be in the drawing to win!
Can I just tell you how touched I am that someone who I don't even know would do something like this just cause they care?
So thank you Danae for being the kind of person you are. There are so many things you could be doing with your money and with your time and you chose to come along side of someone you don't even know to support and encourage them. What a amazing blessing you truly are.
And, I couldn't help but notice the verse you have at the top of your blog...
Our love must not be a thing of words and fine talk. It must be a thing of action and sincerity. 1 John 3:18
You, my friend, are living out the very words of God by your actions- and that is so very cool to see. :)
Now go ahead- make a donation and get yourself in the drawing to win $50!!!
