Ever since Gail and I visited Ethiopia a few years ago, we have had a passion for children born into poverty. I can’t imagine what it would be like grow up without parents. Doing it while trying to get enough clean water and food to survive sounds impossible.
Have you ever dreamed of launching your own self-hosted WordPress blog? If so, Bluehost, the company WordPress itself recommends, is offering web hosting for just $3.25 per month. This Black Friday Special is good for this weekend only. Click Mary Graham is fond of saying, “You may not be able to change the world, but you can change the world for one child.”
As you probably know, adoption is an expensive process. In Megan and Joel’s case, it is going to cost them some $23,000 (click here for the expense breakdown).
They have personally contributed $3,000 toward the cause. Our family and friends have contributed another $6,000. That still leaves $14,000 to reach their goal of $23,000.
I am committed to raising $10,000 of the total myself. To do that, I am participating in a 10K trail race in Chattanooga, Tennessee on Saturday, December 18, 2011. Would you help by sponsoring me in this run?
You can do so by making a 100% tax-deductible contribution to Lifesong for Orphans, the organization that Megan and Joel are working with. I need approximately:
400 people to donate $25 = $10,000
200 people to donate $50 = $10,000
100 people to donate $100 = $10,000
50 people to donate $200 = $10,000
25 people to donate $400 = $10,000
10 people to donate $1,000 = $10,000
