That was my brain. Exploding. With, well… shock, awe, joy, gratitude, and a million other things.
Because of this email I received from a long-time bloggy friend of mine…
LOVE… LOVE… your idea for the 1000 post. You have been such an inspiration to so many in the adoption community… it’s time for us to give back and I can’t think of a better way than to give to An Orphan’s Wish. I would like to match your $1 for every comment… stepping out of faith here. But you have stepped out on faith so many times leading this community. You have put your family out there for so many of us to learn and grow from. You have blessed so many of us through your blog, and No Hands but Ours. It is in your honor for your dedication and commitment to our community. This is really not about me at all… it’s about you and these precious angels at “An Orphan’s Wish”!!!
Let’s watch God work!!!
Alisa has committed to match $1 for every comment left on this post.
And just like that, twice as much money will be donated to An Orphan’s Wish.
How cool is THAT!!
Since several of y’all have commented and emailed, offering to donate personally during this comment-a-thon, I thought I’d use this post for you to officially commit to help in whatever way you want… you could donate $.01 for every comment, or $.05 for every comment, or maybe a specific amount. Every little bit helps. Even if you don’t have much to give and you think your contribution won’t make a difference, it will. Really.
We’re working on getting our PayPal account finalized, so if you’ve got $1 to give you won’t even have to spend the $.44 on a stamp.
I’m adding a Mr. Linky so you can link up if you’d like. Actually, I’ve had to take Mr. Linky out for being naughty, I’ll work on that later. For now, if you’d like to join this effort personally and commit to donating to the kids at An Orphan’s Wish, leave a comment. I can’t wait to see what God is gonna do! He’s obviously already at work in a big way 🙂
Thank you, Alisa! And thank you to everyone who has left a comment, grabbed the AOW button, posted about AOW on their blog and shared on facebook. You are making SUCH a difference!
