Double It!

Last year most of the gifts we gave were "gifts with a purpose"
There are so many amazing charities that sell products to raise money and
families that sell things to support their adoptions.
In the next few days I'm going to try to put together an online "catalog" or list of different causes that allow you to not only give someone on your Christmas list an assortment of great gifts but that also allows you to bless the seller. I love that! It's like double the giving.
Please let me know of any organizations that you know of that I could add to the list.
Or if you are a family trying to fund raise for your adoption I would love to know about it.
My friend Joy has started a list with some great ideas already.

*BTW- Please let me know if I can add you to my blog list. I lost my list a few days ago and am trying to rebuild it*

Add me to your list. We go on hiatus most of the summer, working up at an ultra-cool camp.

Pipo is doing well, back home, and on a bunch of new meds.

Glad you are on the mend too!

Feel free to add me back. I am only blogging once or twice a month now until our wait is over... I am finally catching up on reading your blog. I'm so sorry to hear about your health woes, and I'm praying you'll recover quickly. I always call myself a dork, but after looking it up, I should probably be using the word geek instead :)

Also for your charity list, I love World Vision's gift catalog. They have a few things in there you can get with a donation, then many other things that earmark the money specifically for something (e.g. goats, care for orphans, care for sexually exploited girls, etc.) www.worldvision.org

I would love to be on your blog list. Here it is: www.7900miles.blogspot.com And I have an etsy store here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jeoweo where I sell hot water bottles and covers. We also have a link on our blog for JustLoveCoffee -- awesome coffee and and proceeds go toward adoptive families and also an orphanage in Addis. Thanks for what you're doing!
