The Results!!!

Today was our BIG garage sale fundraiser and we also had a Cupcake Kid's stand! 
Our Family (so far)
Yes it was like this all morning, crazy!
There was a ton more in the garage and on the side!

We received so many donations from family, friends, and even people we never met. It was amazing to watch it continue to come in. We opened the doors and started pulling stuff out at 5:30am, had the signs out at 6:00am and then we had a steady stream of customers until we packed it up at 1:00pm. We have a lot leftover still and plan to have more sales in the future and sell bigger items on Craig's List. 

Our little Cupcake Kids set up a stand and made some of the cutest treats to raise money for SixtyFeet. {Sixty Feet is an action-based organization created to bring hope and restoration to the imprisoned children of Africa in Jesus' name} This ministry has become dear to our hearts and God is doing big things through it. Praying about God using us along side them this fall {more on this to come soon}

Garage Sale for our Adoption: $2,595.66
 The Cupcake Kids Stand $590.63

We are very thankful for all that God did to make this happen and for what He has provided! Praise God, this is only the beginning of what He will do.

  1. Hi - my husband and I along with a board of directors just launched a nonprofit last month (The Sparrow Fund - to give grants to adoptive families. We are trying to get adoptive families who blog to post about it to spread the word. If you have any interest, can you email me? We'd love to have you!
