Fundraising in overdrive

We are going to China to bring our boys home NEXT MONTH!

That means we need lots more money to get there and get back.

Please pray for God's provision and maybe do a little shopping...

So here is a list of our current fundraisers:

Scentsy Party until Oct 29th & the consultant is donating all her commissions, so we get 25% of all sales to help bring the boys home.

Thirty-One Party until Oct 29th & the consultant is donating all her commissions too, so we will get 25% of all sales for this party also to help bring the boys home.

Then Sherry Patton or Thirty-One Fundraiser for Kai & Eli http://www.mythirtyone.com/shop/catalog.aspx



Avon Party until Oct 29th & the consultant is donating all his commissions on sales for this month to help bring our boys home. I don't know what the amount or percentage is, but so grateful for the help.

This beautiful necklace hand made by Stacy Richard, Jubilee Jewels, created especially for our adoption will earn $11 to help bring Eli & Kai home for each one sold.  http://jubileesjewels.com/adoption-fundraising/faith-believe-necklace

Adoption Bug & Show Hope t-shirt fundraiser earns $7 per shirt to help bring our boys home.  http://www.adoptionbug.com/adventure4eli/

Just Love Coffee raises $5 per bag of coffee sold to help our boys come home. https://justlovecoffee.com/about/beneficiary/adventure4eli/

We also still have LOTS of puzzle pieces needing sponsors. Every $5 donation sponsors a piece. You get your name or whatever you'd like written on the back, so Kai & Eli will see who helped bring them home. Donate: http://adventure4eli.chipin.com/in-country-legal-fees 

And since the cooler weather is back, we are breaking out the scarves left over from the winter fundrasier. These are hand knit and beautiful. We’re asking donations be $10 per scarf, plus S/H ($3.50 for one & additional $1.50 per scarf). http://adventure4eli.chipin.com/in-country-legal-fees

MOST IMPORTANTLY, I ASK YOU ALL TO PRAY!

Our TWO LESS JOY FEST is next Sat Oct 20th and we have been running all over town passing out flyers and trying to organize things to make it a great night to glorify God & help our boys home. And everyone is invited...
Thank you all, to God be the glory,
Sherry

  1. The legal fees and estimated travel expenses still left for internaztional travel, finialize adoptions of both boys, travel & live in country for 2.5-3 wks and bring both boys home is running at like $25,000. We are praying to expedite in province time and find good deals on flights and hotel costs, to lower the costs. We BELIEVE God will provide what is necessary & we know God is able. Thank you in advance for your prayers!
