Fundraiser Idea

Angie has a generous offer for those of you that are looking for a fundraiser - she lists some details below and how to contact her directly:

I would like to offer this to anyone that is adopting. My name is Angie and they can view my website at www.loveforadoption.com or email me directly at angel@wyan.org. What I would do is send the family a flyer to pass around to friends and family and also it can be emailed or posted on blogs. The flyer would direct everyone to a special site set up for only fundraisers. Whenever someone makes a purchase, I will donate 25% of the sale to the adoptive family. The donation would come in the form of a check from me around the 20th of the following month. Shaklee pays me around the 18th. I would love to be able to help others on their journey! We are hoping to start the process again in a few years.

Shades of Us - Fundraising Company

I got this as an email and wanted to share:

My name Sarah Hirengen. I am the Executive Director of an organization called Shades of Us. We help adoptive families raise funds to pay for some of the financial burdens that come with adoption. We do this by offering three kinds of fundraising options specifically tailored to adoptive families. These fundraisers are convenient, easy to set up, and have worked well for our families in the past. I was wondering if you would allow me to make your members aware that we are out there to help. Please take a look at our website at http://www.shadesofus.org/. I would be more than happy to answer any questions. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
