I have been eluding to a surprise.
A few of you have guessed that we were adopting from China.
Nope. (Though I’m praying about adoption from somewhere right now…)
Here’s what’s really going on…
Each Fedorable purchase is going to help Bring Henry Home.
Who is Henry? (you ask)
Well, let me tell ya…
I have a friend named Sarah… well more of a friend of a friend… (though I’m hoping wiggle my way into her circle as soon as we move back to South County)… who has adopted 3 children from China. My heart tugged a bit at her story and since I’ve learned that a little heart tugging can actually turn into kinda a big thing, I shot her an email about “somehow helping out in some way with some sort of China adoption thing.”
Really, my email was that vague.
Sarah came up with the best ideas and introduced me to Gretchen from A Well Watered Garden.
Gretchen and her family are in the process of adopting a sweet lil’ guy from China, named Henry.
They need $26,000 total to bring him home. They are almost there.
We are going to help them with the final bit.
And after they get there, we are going to help another family and another family and another and another and another…
Does that excite you as much as it excites me?!!?!?
Right now I’m committing 10% of our profits for Henry (money goes directly to his agency for his adoption). My vision is to have 25% going to families by the end of the year. And next year… well… I wouldn’t want to ruin any surprises… now would I?!!!
Tomorrow I’ll share Gretchen’s story, but today I’ll share some of the ways you can help:
~Buy a Fedorable, of course! (Super Secret Sale going on now for newsletter subscribers!!)
~Donate directly through paypal! $5, $10, $20 or how about $1,000?? (had to ask)
Go to the right hand side of their blog and click the yellow donate button right under the bring Henry Home button. It looks like this: Every little or BIG bit helps!! Come on… do $5 right now. You won’t even miss it and I promise you will get an extra blessing – the knowledge that you were part of something greater today!!
How awesome is that???
I’ve had my eye on the Olive Oyl one for Tess since I saw it (remember our Halloween costumes?). I’m saving my allowance to get it… so don’t buy it… unless of course you are getting it for me. Then you can totally buy it!!! And this Scrappy Birds one just makes me smile!!
Important Side Note:
We are still donating 10% from our profits of the Snowboarder Lids to Surfers Healing! With the same vision of donating 25% by the end of the year!! Each line will go to something different as we grow grow grow!! Thanks for being a part of this with me!
