Hello from Art Makes You!
Hope everyones New Year has started well. New year, new goals. Life goes on!
We are beginning to prepare for our next charity event on April 4th. Please SAVE THE DATE! It is going to be a FUN event! I will also be celebrating my BIRTHDAY!!! :))) Why not come together, have a great time seeing everyone and the same time make a big difference in someones lives.
We have several ideas in mind to who we want to contribute this time around. One of them will be to the families that are in the process of adoption, but could use some financial help towards the adoption process.
As some of you may already know, we were hosting an orphan from Latvia for a month thought Project 143 http://www.projectonefortythree.org As I got to meet several of the families here in US, I learned that the adoption process is quite expensive, as well as the travel expenses are not small. We decided to help several families who are ready to adopt, but could use some help.
One of the families I got to meet and get to know better is amazing Boothby family who are in the process to adopt Ingus from Latvia. Dad is in military and mom is raising their own two children. They hosted Ingus for the second time and is considering him as their own son. I was at the airport when they had to say goodbye to Ingus, it was very hard to explain him why he needs to go back again as the adoption process is not as easy and Ingus is only ten years old. Here is Jenessa's blog with the adoption process updates. http://www.bringingingushome.blogspot.com
At this point, we are starting to gather auction items and would be VERY HAPPY if you have anything to offer? Please contact us through email, Facebook or call us.
This is our last years "Look back and see what we have done" post.
