BE THE CHANGE {T-shirts are HERE and a GIVEAWAY}

As you probably know by now, we are adopting a little girl from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
You probably also know that between court fees, mailing fees, social worker fees, homestudy fees, travel fees, orphanage  fees...need I go on?...that adoption costs big bucks.

And since announcing our adoption, I've been two questions more times than I can count:

1. When is she coming HOME?

2. How can I HELP?

Well, while only God knows the answer to question #1, I have the answer for question #2: 
 to help offset some of those expenses, we are hosting our first fundraiser and are selling these super cute, gender neutral t-shirts.
  You can pre-order your shirt today.
Once a good many orders have been placed, we'll place our order and get your shirts to you via mail or delivery (if you're local).

And all shirts come with FREE SHIPPING! 

"Be the change you want to see in the world."  - Mahatma Gandhi

I just love this quote and what it means in terms of the idea that we can all do something to make a change for the better. Not everyone feels called to adopt, and that's okay. God calls us all to serve in different ways. But we are ALL called to do something.  It's not enough to simply be unhappy with the problems of this world; we are called to take action. I love that this shirt applies to adoption and so much more. 

The shirt was designed a high school friend with some madd skills,
 is super soft (Gildan soft style to be exact),
and I absolutely cannot get enough of it. 

It's navy blue and available in kid sizes!

You can order yours here
(Or simply click on the globe on my sidebar....easy as pie.)

And I want to give one away to one of  YOU!
