“Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know, and holds us responsible to act.” -Proverbs 24:12
My major fundraising project for Quinten is winding down to a close. At least 340.00+ has been raised through monetary donations, raffle sales and silent auction items. Now we just have to wait for the final tallies from the home party sales reps to determine the final outcome. I am also closing out my candle sales today and will tally those funds up as well.
This has been time consuming and lots of work, but I loved every minute of it. My youngest son Liam even got in on the act by painting a picture of a Christmas tree and selling it for the very precise amount of 5.03. When a close friend of mine bought it, he turned to me and asked for the money so I had to explain it all to him again but I think he gets it now! :-) Hoping I am planting a seed in him that will grow with time.
Now if only Quinten would find a family, this project would be complete! Please join me in advocating for him and all the other orphans who are running out of time.
Also, if you have any thoughts or ideas on fundraising, please leave a comment below. Ideas are always welcome!
