- We'll be having a garage sale June 24 & 25. If you live in the area and have anything you'd like to donate, we'll take it! The only stuff we don't want is clothes. We didn't sell much of that last year, and it was so hard to organize that my OCD was in over drive and I went a bit crazy trying to organize it [smile]. And even though I said we'd never have another garage sale; it was a good fundraiser, helped us live a little more minimalistic and spread the word of adoption.
- We're also trying to plan a fundraiser dinner/silent auction. If you have any suggestions (i.e. locations, how to solicit for donations) please feel free to share them.
- Lastly, Ordinary Hero has $1,000 of grant money to give out this weekend. The top 3 sellers from yesterday morning to Sunday night will get there share of the pot. So if you've been planning on buying a t-shirt, now's the time! These shirts are a great way to raise awareness for orphans and they're comfy. Matt and I love ours! So does Gabe! Not only do we get 40% of the proceeds; the remaining proceeds go to projects Ordinary Hero supports! So buy now (if you'd like!), Mother's Day is coming, stock up for Christmas.... you get the picture!
Earlier this week I was contacted by someone with an awesome opportunity. I am super excited about it and although Matt and I haven't really had the chance to really talk about it.... it's one of those times where I could just feel God's work at hand. It is going to be amazing... if everything falls into place. More on that later, I'm sure.
And a few more pictures of Gabe at therapy. Miss Jessie used the net swing as a distraction to cheer him up (he was a bit grumpy yesterday) and then worked him on his belly to encourage him to weight-bare and move on his left arm.
