Not too long ago, I told you about Vincent- and his parent's efforts to raise the funds to bring him home right on schedule.
Seriously, look at the personality on this kid!
Well, Vincent's family have been able to make every payment so far, but with more expenses coming up, they are still fundraising. They have become "affiliates" (basically means that when you buy a t-shirt, they get a portion of the purchase back) for Ordinary Hero. The mission of Ordinary Hero is: to inspire and empower ORDINARY people to make an extraordinary difference in the life of a child in need. SO COOL! I love their slogan "Change the World for One". It would be so great if everyone did that- did something to change the world for one child in need.
They have some GREAT t-shirts, and if you make a purchase and choose "Alex and Jill Morris" from the "Affiliates" drop down menu at checkout, they get a portion of the sale of your t-shirt back to help bring Vincent home. I bought three of their "I'm Gonna Change the World" t-shirts for my kids for Christmas. They may not be major reformers someday, but I hope they will set a high priority one changing the world for (at least) one child in need.
I'm not posting this as part of a contest or to get a free t-shirt, or even because Jill asked me to. I'm posting this so that when China says it's time to come pick Vincent up, that his family will have no reason to not jump on the first plane to China.
So, go to the Ordinary Hero Store and do some early Christmas shopping to help bring Vincent home. As an added incentive, Ordinary Hero is giving $500 to the "Affiliate" with the highest number of sales between now and August 28th. Currently, Vincent's family has one order and the current Top Seller has only 4 orders!!! We can help them win that bonus! :) What a huge help that would be!
In this small way, we really can "Change the World for One"- specifically Vincent.
He, like every child, is so worth it.
And, a little video of Vincent for your enjoyment! :)
