Crochet for Honduras!

My friend Chelsae has made some really pretty ruffle scarves for our fundraising efforts. Chelsae suggested that they also make a really cute alternative to boas for kids - and they don't shed feathers everywhere!

These are $15 each, and can also be shipped anywhere in USA for an extra $5.

If interested shoot me a message through the contact form here on the page.

Our fundraising will pay for our 3rd mission trip at the Manuelito Project in Honduras. This is a home for ex-street kids, rescued from the violent streets and extreme poverty. 40 kids live there and another 70 come each day for a free education. For more information about the project, see their Facebook page

If you would like to donate to our trip directly, then we welcome your contribution of any size.

Toilets for Honduras!

Yes, that's right. Toilets. No, I am not doing a weird fundraiser involving the loo.  The Manuelito Project was able to purchase new toilets for the kids' dorms as a result of the wonderful donations to our team's trip last year. How awesome is that!  While the fundraising pays for our tickets down there, it also makes a difference in other ways. Working on the new school, putting up metal bug screens.... and buying toilets!

Thanks to everyone who contributed!

Proofreading for Honduras

I am accepting small jobs for proofreading.

I have been writing for several years, sometimes for fun but also for work. As an all-in-one website writer, blogger, resume reader, book reviewer etc etc, I felt this would be a creative way to earn some extra funds for our Boldly Compassionate campaign! Rates will be a lot lower than pro rates of course, but enough to make it worth my time for fundraising.

Examples of papers I will proofread:
  • Works of fiction
  • Short works of non-fiction
    - excluding specialized fields that require expert knowledge
  • Resumes and cover letters.
I do reserve the right to decline any works. If interested, contact me for details. Use the contact form on the right side of the page.

What's in store for 2015?

Through last year, as I prepped for our trip to Honduras, I thought that in 2015 I would take a break. Maybe take a trip to the beach instead? Enjoy a few months of not fundraising, perhaps? Alas, I am not in control of these things and it seems the Manuelito Project is firmly in our hearts, and the good Lord has different plans for me & they don't involve the beach!

So this summer, we will join our church's team & head once again to the beautiful children at the project, to serve them, love them and be blessed by them. Excited? Yes I am, and I am also so anxious about the coming months. Can we raise this kind of money for the 3rd year in a row? I sure hope so. Our return visit last year showed me how much the kids benefit from the missions - not just having food and a shelter, but an education, and they grow spiritually and emotionally. It is empowering to them, rather than enabling. And at the same time it fills our souls with joy and a firmer faith as we see the work that God is doing in their lives.

I hope you can support us through your prayers over the coming months!
