We have some awesome families in our Affiliate Fundraising Program. I announced that we would give a matching grant to the first family to raise $300 in commissions on March 3rd. Here it is, not even two weeks later, and WE HAVE A WINNER!
Congrats to the McCuistons! Her $300 in commissions just turned into $600. Angie has been doing a great job of spreading the word about the OH Fundraiser, to the point that they won the matching grant! I love that a sale that is credited to an affiliate at checkout gets them one step closer to bringing their baby home or going on that mission trip to serve those in need. The McCuistons are adopting from Ethiopia and here is what Angie says in her own words....
Our family is excited and humbled to be on the journey to adopt a baby (boy or girl) from Ethiopia! We believe that the Lord has called us to this and has confirmed His will for our family over and over again. The further into this we get, the more our eyes and hearts are opened to the overwhelming needs of orphans around the world. We are excited to see how the Lord will use our family to love on these precious children. We are changing and praising God for it! We can not wait to have our little one home and are so grateful to all that have supported us along the way.
You can check out the McCuiston's journey on their blog. Their family is precious! I will also be adding all our affiliate's blogs on my blogroll, who would like to be added, very soon. If you have not signed up to fundraise with OH and would like to, CLICK HERE to learn more.
I look forward to featuring an affiliate fundraising family and letting you all see a glimpse of their journey each week. Seeing other families adopting, and/or stepping out in faith to help others, is very inspiring. We all need to see that and be encouraged and challenged in our own walk of faith.
Congrats again to the McCuistons, and many thanks to all the families who participated and are fundraising and working on reaching their goals as well. We will have other opportunities and fun things coming up soon.
