5/5/5…What is this?

I would love to tell you how YOU can help 5 families and 7 children this month, for only $5!

We have been chosen this month as one of the 5/5/5 for Families recipients through Reece’s Rainbow. YAY!!!

This grant is a bit different from the others. Instead of the organization and their fundraisers working to raise the grant funds the recipients are involved. We share about the 5/5/5 opportunity, Reece’s Rainbow, and the families and children.

So, let me brake down the 5’s.

5 – Five families who are close to traveling are selected by a committee of five men and women who have all adopted. These five members have adopted from Russia, Latin America, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Armenia, and China. Yes, if you are counting that is more than five countries!

5 – The funds are divided among the 5 families on the 5th of the following month. We are one of October’s families, we will receive our funds November 5.

5 – And now the fun part! How are the funds raised? Donors contribute $5 (or $10, $25, whatever amount) to the 5/5/5 grant. This can be a one-time gift or set up to be re-curing monthly! I know $5 may not sound like a lot, but when many people come together it adds up quickly.

That is the break down on the 5/5/5 for Families. We would very much appreciate anything you have to “throw into the pot” this month.

It is such a blessing to watch these children finally join their forever families and a bonus to know that your $5 helped make that happen. We set up our re-curing $5 in May and are so glad we did.

Would you please consider being a 5/5/5 donor?

James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

I almost forget! When the total reaches $1,000 I will let Little Moose do my hair and Little Mouse will do my make-up and we will spend 1 hour in public. Yes, I will take pictures! 🙂
