It's My Birthday

Edited Note: Thank you, thank you, thank you to those who donated! I'm so blessed!

Today is my birthday, and, as a gift to me, please consider making a donation to Shaohannah's Hope, Inc.

Domestic and international adoption costs can range from $10,000 to over $35,000 USD. Let's face it--most people just don't have the financial resources to make adoption possible. Now, families can turn to Shaohannah's Hope for financial grants and other assistance!

Facilitating adoptions for families is their mission; by helping these families, they are creating life opportunities for orphans worldwide. That's what I call a worthy cause.

Even $1, $5 or $10 is a generous gift to a loving family. If 100 people donate only $10... well, you can do the math! Every little bit helps. Instead of waiting for December, why not start your charitable donations now for the 2008 U.S. tax season?

If you do decide to give, please do let me know. It sure would make my day.

Happy Birthday! Why this particular charity?

Mrs. W said...

Thank you, Neen. I really have a heart for children. I love this charity for a number of reasons.

I like their mission. They reach out internationally and not just locally, or to one particular country, and that's important to me.

Myself, along with several of my friends, struggle/have struggled with infertility, and though I am not seeking adoption at this time, this charity is a source of hope for so many people like me.

So, in a nutshell, that's why this particular charity.

Guess I should have discussed that. This area of my life is sensitive, as you can imagine.

Hapy Happy Birthday! I would donate, but I'm too drugged from the surgery to manage a debit/credit card right now. I'll try to remember to donate later!

Oh and I gave you an award on my blog.

Mrs. W said...

Thank you, Mary! And what an honor to get an award--my first one! :) Feel better, girl.
