Just wanted to let you know that we are planning a fundraising event for Friday, July 8th at 7:00pm at Pine Hills Church in Fort Wayne. This is going to be an awesome event, and we just recieved confirmation that Tom Davis, President of Children's Hopechest and auther of "Red Letters" and "Fields of the Fatherless" will be coming to speak at this event! If you have read any of Tom's books you can feel his heart for the orphans in his words. We are in full on planning mode for this fundraiser now, and we are seeking businesses that will donate items or services that could be auctioned off at a silent auction. All proceeds will directly benefit the children of the Tullo Kebele care point in Awassa, Ethiopia. If you would like to donate an item or if you know of any small business owners that may consider donating an item, please, please, please, let me know! We are looking for techy items like e-readers, ipads, etc... as these type of items seem to go over well. However, any item or service would be greatly appreciated as a donation to this great cause. Please call me or email me if you would like to find out how you can get involved in this event and make it as big as possible for the children of Ethiopia!
