Countdown to... "Bringing Home Emily Hope" Orphan Awareness Event
Our "Bringing Home Emily Hope" Orphan Awareness event is only a month away. We are very busy ironing out all the final details and are getting very excited about the big day!
We've posted this event on our Loman Adoption Facebook page. If you don't "like" us yet, please do that. If you haven't seen our FB event yet, you can view details HERE. Feel free to RSVP while you're visiting our event page! The purpose of this event is to bring awareness to our community of the global orphan crisis and it also provides a tangible way to help in relieving this crisis. Proceeds will go towards the expense of bringing our baby girl home from China. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit (un)adopted, who we are so thrilled to have joining us for the occasion.
There are many ways to help, if you feel led. Whether it's through your time, your monetary donations, or just a heart to hear how you can love on orphans, all of these are valuable.
If you are interested in volunteering your time at the event, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We still need a few slots filled for the 3:00-4:30 time frame as well as 4:30-6:00.
Just coming to the event shows a tremendous amount of support for our family and
(un)adopted. There's so much to look forward to!
As I mentioned in my previous post, we have some exciting auction items available to bid on at the event. This will be a great opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done, all while supporting some worthy causes. While you are busy battling it out on the bid sheets, the kiddos can enjoy complimentary popcorn, a bounce house, or have a favorite balloon animal made!
Thanks to Bebe's Kitchen, Cooking for a Cause, you can buy a jambalaya plate at the event for $7. We will also have water and soft drinks available for $1 and complimentary coffee and hot chocolate. Thanks PJ's Coffee!
Also available for your enjoyment... some excellent live music by Joe Bergeron of St. Timothy's Methodist Church and his posse of incredible musicians! Don't forget your blanket to sit on while enjoying all this food and music!
We will also be selling t-shirts and accepting donations at a "Loman Adoption" table. Garth Thorpe, from (un)adopted, will also have a table where he will gladly discuss the organization with you and answer any questions you may have. We are especially excited to share our adoption story with you and hear Garth give a brief presentation towards the end of our event.
We hope you can join us on November 16th! Please continue to pray for God to work through this event. All praise and glory to Him!
