Mark your calendars!

We have made an agreement with Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department where Jen volunteers to rent their pavilion and use the parking lot on June 27, 2009, time TBA. We will be holding a car wash/yard sale with proceeds going to the adoption. We have yet to decide on a rain date should we need to postpone the event.

If you would like to help us with this event, there are many ways we could use you! We need help with selling items or washing cars, as well as donations of items to be sold. If you have any items in good condition that you might be thinking about getting rid of or donating to Goodwill, please consider donating them to us to help us in our venture. If you're willing to take some fliers to distribute to others, that would be great as well. Please help us spread the word so we can be successful. We are planning on posting a flier at the station as well as at local businesses, our workplaces, around town and on cars. It takes a lot of work to make something like this successful, so the more help we have, the better, and all of it no matter how small is appreciated! We just pray that this event is successful and brings us closer to our goal.

Also of note is that we will begin our "Bottles of Love" fundraiser in the upcoming weeks. This is a simple one where we will have baby bottles placed at Jack's preschool, our workplaces, and sent out to friends and family who are willing to help us. The purpose is to fill the bottle with change and donations, and to then return them to us when they are full to put into the adoption fund. If you are interested in taking a bottle to place your spare change in, or know someone else who might be, please let us know and we will make sure we get these to you.

Thank you to everyone for your support and prayers.
