♥ Blessings for Betzatha ♥

My AMAZING Sister asked her son, Tanner what he wants for his birthday this year and THIS was what he suggested... 

OFFICER TANNER IS TURNING 7!!!

TANNER HAS ISSUED YOU AND YOUR FAMILY A CITATION TO ATTEND HIS BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!!!

DATE:  SATURDAY, JULY 23RD    TIME:  3:30-5:00

***SPECIAL BULLETIN***
NO BIRTHDAY GIFTS PLEASE

…..INSTEAD TANNER IS COLLECTING THE FOLLOWING ITEMS TO SEND TO ETHIOPIA WHEN HIS AUNT DARCEE RETURNS TO PICK UP HIS NEW COUSIN "M".  THE ITEMS WILL BE DONATED TO AN ORPHANGE THAT HAS VERY LIMITED FUNDING AND IS IN GREAT NEED OF SUPPLIES.  WE HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN OUR HEARTS FOR THE ORPHANS IN ETHIOPIA AND WE HOPE YOU WILL COME CELEBRATE WITH TANNER!!
MOST NEEDED ITEMS FOR DONATION:

IF YOU WISH TO PURCHASE A GOAT FOR THE ORPHANGE THEY ARE $50.00 OR 1000 BIRR (ETHIOPIAN MONEY).  SOUNDS A LITTLE CRAZY, BUT THEY ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED BY ETHIOPIAN ORPHANGE!!!


**IF YOU AREN’T ABLE TO ATTEND BUT ARE STILL INTERESTED IN DONATING LET ME KNOW AND I CAN PICK UP YOUR DONATION**

"TOGETHER WE CAN ALL HELP OUT TO
           PROTECT AND SERVE THOSE IN NEED"



- with help from his AWESOME Mommy... For HIS birthday he raised $345.00 to purchase goats for Betzatha and received all these donations...
 



I'm convinced - THESE awesome kids and their families ARE changing the WORLD!!! :) Who has a birthday like this? Normally kids can't wait to open the next present and the next... All of Tanner's gifts went to the kids at BETZATHA!  It honestly brings me to tears!!! The selflessness of it all - is just beyond words...

SERIOUSLY!! We were just BLOWN away that a 7-year old boy would be SO passionate to help out a very needy orphanage in Ethiopia! I have the COOLEST nephew EVER! ...and I am SO thankful for the support and constant encouragement from my Sister!! ♥

What a HUGE impact this will have on these children and staff! 


A BEAUTIFUL BLESSING!


I CAN.NOT.WAIT to fill up the tubs for Betzatha and get Wass or someone to help us purchase 7 or more... GOATS to take to them! WOW!!!

I wasn't planning on taking any donations the second trip until I went to Betzatha. ...I'm gonna grab some TUBS at Wal-Mart and just start filling them up (I think I will just leave the tubs with Betzatha - flying home with little M and a bunch of tubs could be tricky :)). 

They are gonna be OVERWHELMED! They will be SO grateful for these AWESOME donations... and any others we can add to it!


If you would like to donate any formula or diapers or anything to Betzatha, you can email me at endgeneral@msn.com. 

I would LOVE to deliver them for you. ♥
