1. Drinking a cup of speciality coffee.
2. Eating a slice or two of pizza.
3. A car wash.
4. Helping to bring together five families with their children.
What do these all have in common? This:
Five dollars. Each of the items that I listed would cost about five dollars. Including #4!
A few days ago, we were unexpectedly blessed with another opportunity for fundraising, and it has a lot to do with $5.
However, this one will help to bring not one, not two, not even five, but TEN children home to their forever families!! Ten!! How amazing is that?? Four boys and six girls will soon be four sons and six daughters!
This wonderful program is called 5/5/5 for families, and it was created by Reece's Rainbow. Here's how it works:
Five families per month receive this opportunity. Each of the five families must commit to a monthly donation of $5 or more for at least 6 months. Each of those five families then spends one month gathering as much funding as possible, and try to get at least ten new people to donate at least $5. At the end of that month, the money is divided up evenly among the five families, and the process starts again.
The tricky part about this grant, though, is that we only have this one month, now until July 5th, to raise as many funds as we possibly can. This month, the hope is to raise $4,341 for the Tretheway family, the Heath family, the Schultz family, the Zittle family, and us, the Cogans!! It can happen with just a little help! The goal hasn't been met for several months - wouldn't it be amazing if we could make this the best month yet in 2016?
We have more to come, but for now, could you give a cup of coffee, a sandwich, or a car wash for the lives of ten precious children?
