Adoption Fundraising Update

We have paid $6500 out of pocket prior to any fundraising.  We currently have raised $5239.00 since starting our fundraising efforts.  Thank-you to all of you for helping us get to this point.  


We have a couple of great things to share with you.  The first is that Lifesong has given us a $3000 matching grant.  What that means is for every dollar that is donated to us, Lifesong will match that amount up to $3000. If you'd like to double your donation, please send a check to:

Lifesong for Orphans
Att: Davis/2725
PO Box 40
Gridley, IL   61744

The other good news is that we are only $761 away from giving away the first HD HERO camera.  I'm really excited about seeing who is going to win it.  Not very many people have registered to follow our blog though, so that increases the chances for those of you that are following our blog.


For those of you that are on the fence about donating, please watch this little video clip.  It gives you a brief look into Ethiopia and the orphans that are there.  You can make a difference for at least two of these amazing children.

Do you feel like you can't help enough, so why help.  Here is a little math for you.  An average business person has approx 2000 people in there database.  So here is my challenge for you.  I've asked my database to donate $5-$10 one time.  If you do the same with your database, friends, family, etc... We will have no problem meeting our goal and you will have made a difference!!  We appreciate all donations, small and big.
