Today is Orphan Sunday. There are so many orphans in this world, an estimated over 147 MILLION orphans. I've seen many blog posts and facebook updates today, stating the sad statistics and presenting emotional videos. I was trying to think of a way to embrace this day in a way that will help. So I've decided to help just ONE. That's all it takes. To help just ONE orphan find her way home. You can not save all the world's orphans, but you can help save one (or two or three ;)), but let's just start with ONE. You do not need to adopt to help an orphan find their way home. Not everyone is called to adopt, but YOU CAN help support the families that are called to adopt. This is ONE family I'd love for you to help...
As I mentioned in my last blog post, the Brower family (http://broweradoption.com/) is just starting their adoption process to bring home a little girl from Russia! I know they are in good hands, as they are using the agency that facilitated James' adoption, but they need help raising the funds to cover the adoption fees. So here is my personal plan to help them out....and how you can help as well!!
1) I'm hosting an ONLINE SCENTSYand THIRTY-ONE Party starting NOW!! It'll last a couple weeks and we may extend it if nessesary. Get your Christmas shopping done early!!! Scentsy always makes great gifts for anyone!! I am doing this in conjunction with a fundraising ministry that two fellow adoptive mama's are starting, called MercyFound (more on that later, it's exciting!!)
How to participate? Click the links below and start shopping!! Once the party is closed in about two weeks, my MercyFound girls will then send 20% of the sales to the Brower's!! It's that easy!!
Can it get any better than that?!? :)
Start shopping and share this with everyone you know!!!

2) Starting December 1, I will be donating ALL of my Advocare (https://www.advocare.com/09093889/) commission towards their fundraiser! I'll do another post about that later!
3) Don't want to shop,but want to donate? Check out the Brower's webpage (http://broweradoption.com/) to make the donation directly from their site.
3)Want to help MercyFound get going?? Host your own ONLINE SCENTSY and/or THIRTY-ONE party. You'll get hostess gifts and ALL of the commission will go directly towards an adoptive family in need!! Contact me and I'll get you the details!! As soon as their website is up and running I'll post more information. This is going to be an exciting ministry!
