Save lots of money, change lots of lives

It has been a little while since I've posted.  I have been VERY busy.  Wrapping up these last days of school, juggling my two boys playing on 3 different teams, babysitting 4 girls while their parents are in Eastern Europe adopting, Project HOPEFUL FIG grant duties, completing our home study, chasing dossier documents, and finishing the basement bedrooms and bathroom.  You know, the usual.

All of that has kept me from doing much fundraising, but in spite of that, generous friends have not stopped working to raise funds for this beautiful group of four that I long to become Heims.

My wonderful friend Julie and her church, HOMEWOOD CHURCH, have conspired to hold a fundraiser for me.  Julie has started something called Heaven's Bridge as a means to assist families and causes in raising funds.  You can visit it here.

If you are interested, you can join us at HOMEWOOD Church for a SUPER-COUPONING event.  Learn all the tricks and tips to get more food and house hold products for less money.  Your $10 donation will register you for the event.  We will also be holding some exciting raffles.  You can win a Thirty-One luggage set, 2 different fragrance sets from Bath & Body Works, as well as a Project HOPEFUL Basket full of t-shirts and jewelry.  Additionally you can by homemade preserves, cookies, pastries and breads!

The event is at HOMEWOOD CHURCH on the corner of 183rd & Governors Hwy, in Homewood, June 30, from 10-12.  Doors open at 9am.

I am so excited to announce that Project HOPEFUL has been chosen as one of Cultivate Wines’ newest causes!

Cultivate is giving away $100,000 per quarter to non-profits via a democraticvoting system. The winner will receive $50,000, and the five runners-up will each receive $10,000. To vote, you can either register or login through facebook. Once you’re logged in, you will have 1 vote per day. So be sure to come back and vote for Project HOPEFUL again each day! Use this link to vote: VOTE NOW
We’re sure you can imagine what this much money could mean to Project HOPEFUL’s ability to fulfill our mission toEducate, Encourage, and Enable families and individuals to advocate for and adopt children with HIV/AIDS and other of the MOST OVERLOOKED children for adoption!
Please consider printing off our Get out the Vote reminder card and placing it in a place you will remember every single day from May 1 through June 30.  Every vote is going to be absolutely crucial! Also, every time you vote, would you please tell all of your contacts and ask them to vote, too? The power to multiply votes with these very simple actions is enormous!
Here are the rules:
1.  You must be 21 years old to vote.  If you aren’t, ask your friends/family who ARE.
2.  NO gifts; contests; give aways.
3.  You must sign in using a FB account to vote.  If you don’t have one, would you consider registering for one just for the next 60 days?  You can take it down thereafter….
4.  Absolutely no use of voting companies who do all the work for you.
Thank you so much for your help and support!
