T-shirt Fundraiser

Calling all t-shirt junkies!!! 

We just got our t-shirt design back from the printer and we are super-excited to share it with you!!  The first batch of shirts will be printed up sometime this week.  It is NOT too late to order shirts.  Our goal is to sell 100 shirts.  If we did that, we would be able to put a little over $1,000 into our adoption fund.  How cool is that??  So far, we are about halfway to our goal.  If you are interested in placing an order, email me your sizes and get your money to us.  You may write a check out to:  Kirsten Gregoire.  Mail payments straight to us.  Unfortunately in order to order the shirts, we do need to collect money ahead of time.  The point is to make money, not lose it!  :)  Here is a look at the final design:

Well??  What do you think??  T-shirts can be ordered in ANY size, including toddler and youth.  I should note, that kids shirts will be done on white t-shirts instead of black in order to keep down our costs.

A couple other fundraisers I'd like to highlight:

Children's Book Sale:
Have any little girls in your life?  Looking for a way to combat the message that our society gives them about beauty?  Stephanie Farley, author of the book, "God Made You Beautiful", has offered $2 from every book sale to go towards our adoption.  Perfect for Easter baskets!!  Visit her website at to place an order today!  Just make sure to include a note that it is for our adoption.  Thanks so much Stephanie!

Ticki-Tacki-Toys Wooden Toy Sale:
We really do have some great friends!!!  Our friends, Josh and Tember Heft make homemade, wooden children's stacker toys out of completely organic materials.  They are absolutely beautiful!!  They have offered $5 from every toy sold to go towards our adoption.  You can check out their site at  Thank you Tember and Josh!!!  <3

Many of you may know, that Charles has been asked to photograph several weddings over the past couple years.  It is a hobby that he thoroughly enjoys (and one that he is quite good at too, I might add!!).  We’d love to photograph your next event!  Family portraits in the park, pregnancy pictures, weddings, family reunions……all proceeds will go towards bringing our child home!  View sample photos by visiting 

Coffee Sale:
Purchase coffee and support our adoption, ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!!  Just Love Coffee knows coffee, and they just so happen to have a heart for orphan-care around the world!  Visit  $5 from every bag sold will go to bringing our child home.

Real Estate:
 Now I KNOW I've gotten your attention!  I'm sure you're wondering what in the world this could possibly have to do with our adoption, but here it is:  Our good friend, Mary Pappas, is also a realtor with Prudential Rittenhouse Realty Group in Harleysville.  She is highly motivated to sell homes and just so happens to have a heart for adoption!  Mary has offered to donate HALF of her commission towards our adoption costs for anyone who buys or sells a home with her!  Now THAT'S a good friend! :)  I know you will LOVE her!  Mary is incredibly personable, honest, hard-working and absolutely loves people!  If you are looking to buy or sell your home, and are in need of an agent who will work for YOU, you may contact Mary at or by phone at (215) 262-4458 (cell) or (215) 256-6543 (office).

So there you have it!  Lots of ways to help orphans right at home!  Happy Monday to you all!
