Could one of the last things you do this year be supporting adoption? Or one of the first things you do in 2016 be support adoption?
We are extremely excited to announce our Adoption Shirt Fundraiser. Baylee Brown has been working with us for a few months, bouncing ideas around about when and how to go about this. We decided: ITS TIME!
Live out love and join us in bringing home [our] baby Brenner! We fully believe that family is more than blood, that adoption is redemption, and that we need a village. Will you be a part of our village and support adoption by purchasing a shirt? Will you help bring home baby Brenner?
We entirely consider adoption as living out love. Adoption is not charity, it is not a mere metaphor either. When we adopt, we are picturing something that is true about our God. We see what God is doing for us, fighting for orphans and making them His very own, and we join in His redemptive work.
Our shirt campaign will go for just 21 days! Our goal is to sell 75 shirts! They will print as soon as enough are sold to make a profit (I think we need to sell 3? If we don't sell more than 3 then you will get your money back). This campaign will end January 21.
Will you help us? Will you join us? Will you help us bring home our baby?! Share this post on your Facebook and Twitter ('and Myspace,' says Loren, who is this guy?). Share it on instagram and add a link into your bio for your friends to easily purchase one!
What we are REALLY hoping is that you will post a photo of yourself wearing the shirt once you get it! Post it and hashtag #bringhomebabybrenner. We want to see your beautiful and handsome selves sporting these beautiful shirts, helping us, joining us, battling for the life of our baby. We would love to print these photos out and make a little flip book of everyone who purchased shirts and helped us bring home our baby.
You will have 3 options. I was bummed there weren't any children's sizes, but if we have the honor of adopting again and do a shirt fundraiser, we will definitely look for a site that offers kid's sizes.
Your options are:
Thank you so much for purchasing a shirt and helping us bring home our baby! You living out love is huge and meaningful and just...mind blowing. We cannot and would not want to do this without you.
