It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Fundraiser: Family Handprint Project

A friend is hosting a fundraiser for us and it is unique!

You create a simple decorative keepsake for your family...
while helping us complete our family!

We found this great Pinterest project that is super simple but super sweet.

Now my friend, Jen, is very artsy craftsy. (She totally gets it honest, her mom is also very gifted!) She makes stuff like this in her sleep...but me, I lack that gift.

I pinned this because it is simply a board with some handprints. I can do that! 

In this sample, the names are handpainted...ummm yeah, I can't do that in a way that would look acceptable hanging on my wall for a few years.

So Jen found a simple way to help us all make this simple project even easier and better looking! She will create custom vinyl decals for your board. The best part is that the proceeds will be donated to our adoption fund!

Make Your Own in 5 Simple Steps

  1. Gather supplies: board, paint and/or stain, brushes, custom vinyl decals (directions for ordering are below), and your family
  2. Paint or Stain Board your preferred color. Let dry completely.
  3. Attach Custom vinyl decal on the top of the board. 
  4. Paint each member of your family's hand and make print on board. Let dry. Leave space to attach optional custom vinyl of each person's name. 
  5. Attach Custom vinyl of each person's name. 

For a suggested donation of $15, Jen will create custom vinyl with your family's name and established date. For an additional suggested donation of $5 each, she will create custom vinyl with the first name of member.

The details:
Colors: Black or White
Cost for vinyl family name with established date: $15 suggested minimum donation
Cost for each additional name: $5 suggested minimum donation
Cost for Shipping: $2

To order:
Place your order by emailing Jen will then send you an invoice through paypal.

The Thanks:
