OH MY! OH MY! OH!


OH!


 Is FAR, FAR From Ordinary in my book! They surpassed the EXTRAORDINARY also!!! ;) What an AMAZING opportunity to be able to sell their EXTREMELY COOOOOL merchandise and have this generous organization send the profit to 
ALL GOD’s CHILDREN INTERNATIONAL 
to put into our ADOPTION FUND!!

And THANKS to my SISTER for helping us to reach that TOP 3 SELLER SPOT!!! WOW! ....because of her help ORDINARY HERO doubled the amount of money that goes straight to AGCI to be used to BRING HOME our Daughter(s)!
The amount?
You won’t believe this!!
My BIG MOUTH is still stuck OPEN in SHOCK!!

$1,230.00

We are THAT much closer, THAT is HUGE! HUGE! HUGE!

…I want to share what beautiful words my sister emailed her friends – and the responses she got were incredible! We are BLOWN AWAY with the kindness, thoughtfulness, the generosity of her help and all of her friends and family that jumped on board!!!  We wouldn’t have even come close to reaching without HER help!

What a STORY to tell our daughter(s) someday – how MANY people helped to bring her HOME!!  How many people are thinking about her and praying for her to have a family!
OUR FAMILY!!!

Emails my SWEEEET Sis sent out to her friends:

Hello Friends and Family!!!

I have an exciting opportunity for you all!!! My sister and her family are in the process of adopting a little girl or possibly 2 little girls from Ethiopia.  They have been on the list for several months now and are making their way closer every month!!!  My sister Darcee, her husband Erik and my nieces Madison and Makinzi are such a loving family!  My kids love spending time with them up in Seattle and every time they go visit Auntie Darcee they might as well have gone to Disneyland!! She is so much fun to be around and they all just embrace our kids like their own. I cannot wait for the day I get the call from sister letting me know that I am going to have another niece or nieces!!  What an amazing blessing!

This month a great organization, The Ordinary Hero is donating $10.00 of every one of their t-shirts sold on their website to adopting families. That is a huge donation from each shirt sold!!!  The money goes directly to the adoption agency in my sisters name. Just make sure to put their names "Darcee and Erik Sanders" in the "add special instructions to sender" box at check out. That money then is used towards the expenses of their adoption ONLY.  It's a great way to get a cool shirt for yourself, give one as a gift this holiday season or maybe buy one for your kids.....and you get the added bonus of helping an incredible family get that much closer to their dream of adopting a little girl(s) from Africa.

If you do decide to support this amazing cause send me an email and let me know!! I would love to tell my sister how wonderful all my friends and family are!!!

Have a wonderful holiday season!! Thanks for your support!!

HELLO FRIENDS!!! 

I HAVE SOME GREAT NEWS!! MY SISTER GOT AN EMAIL FROM ORDINARY HERO YESTERDAY LETTING HER KNOW THAT THEIR FAMILY WAS ONE OF THE TOP 10 FAMILIES FOR THIS FUNDRAISER!!!!  IF THEY END UP BEING ONE OF THE TOP 3 FAMILIES EVERY DOLLAR THAT WAS MADE FROM THE $10.00 DONATIONS FROM EACH T-SHIRT PURCHASED IN THEIR NAME IS MATCHED BY ORDINARY HERO!!!  THAT MEANS WE COULD DOUBLE THE MONEY COLLECTED TO GO TOWARDS THEIR ADOPTION FUND WITH THEIR ADOPTION AGENCY!!  THIS IS REALLY EXCITING!!

IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD TIME TO CHECK OUT THE T-SHIRTS DON'T MISS THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY! JUST CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW AND GET YOUR ORDER IN NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 30TH!  WE HAVE 7 MORE DAYS TO BE A PART OF HELPING TO CHANGE THE LIFE OF ONE OR TWO ORPHANED BABY GIRLS.  

MY SISTER HAS BEEN COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED AND HUMBLED BY THE LOVE AND SUPPORT SHOWN BY ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED T-SHIRTS!!  SHE CANNOT BELIEVE THAT MY FRIENDS WOULD WANT TO HELP HER OUT IN THEIR JOURNEY TO ADOPT!!  SHE IS EXTREMELY GRATEFUL AND SENDS ME A HEARTFELT EMAIL EVERY TIME I TELL HER ANOTHER FRIEND JUST BOUGHT 4 MORE SHIRTS FOR THEIR FAMILY!  IF ANY OF YOU HAVE MET OR KNOW MY SISTER  YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW EXICITED SHE IS!! 

LET'S ALL COME TOGETHER AND PUSH THEM TO THE TOP 3!!! WAHOOOOOO!!!

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO PURCHASE A T-SHIRT YOU SHOULD TAKE A LOOK AT MY SISTER'S ADOPTION BLOG AND ALL THE OTHER FAMILIES LINKED TO THEIR WEBSITE.  THE STORIES ARE INSPIRING AND TRULY TOUCH YOUR HEART.  I HAVE SPENT HOURS AT THE COMPUTER READING ABOUT OTHERS AND THEIR JOURNEY TO ADOPTING. IT HAS OPENED MY EYES AND MY HEART TO A WHOLE OTHER DIMENSION OF "GIVING"!

THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!!!  I HOPE  YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING!  GIVE THANKS FOR ALL WE ARE BLESSED WITH! 


KRISTIN



P.S. DON'T FORGET TO WRITE "DARCEE AND ERIK SANDERS" IN THE SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS BOX WHEN MAKING YOUR PAYMENT.  THIS IS HOW THEY KNOW TO PUT THE DONATION TOWARDS THEIR TOTAL. ALSO, IF YOU CANNOT FIND THE PLACE TO DO THIS OR ARE UNSURE YOU DID IT CORRECTLY, JUST SEND ME AND EMAIL WITH THE QUANTITY OF SHIRTS PURCHASED AND WHEN AND I CAN CONTACT ORDINARY HERO.  I HAVE HAD TO DO THIS ALREADY AND THE CORRECTION WAS MADE AFTER THE T-SHIRTS WERE ALREADY PURCHASED.

ALSO.....DON'T FORGET TO SEND ME AN EMAIL SO I CAN LET ME SISTER KNOW HOW WONDERFUL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE!

PRAISE GOD!

…THANK you ORDINARY HERO!
THANK YOU KRISTIN!!!

...and THANK YOU to each PERSON who purchased something from ORDINARY HERO in our NAME!
We will be FOREVER Grateful and are deeply humbled by your AMAZING, selfless, thoughtful CONTRIBUTION to helping us bring home our DAUGHTER!

THANK YOU!!!
