OK, some really good stuff is out there in blog land right now, so I have to link it up!! :)
First of all, there are only TWO days left for New Day's Surgery Fund drive, and the awesome part is that EVERY DOLLAR you donate will be TRIPLED!!! (Yep, your $10 becomes $30, $25 becomes $75, your $100 becomes $300....you get the picture).
Of course this cause is close to my heart because without donor's to New Day's surgery fund, Cooper would not have had the surgery that saved his life and allowed us the amazing blessing to be his parents. Would you consider donating? Maybe donating in Cooper's name so that other kids can have the chance at life that he has been blessed with? I've been at New Day. I've seen the difference they make. Skipping dinner out once this month to donate $30 will truly help to save a child life. Would you consider being part of that?
If you need further convincing, several parents of New Day kiddos are guest blogging over at Carrie's blog, Signs of Hope. Carrie and her husband served at New Day for a few years, and I had the privilege of meeting her when we were there picking up Cooper. Her heart beats for these orphans....and she longs to see them whole in every way. Now back in the states, she is working to help raise funds for these life-saving surgeries. In fact, in order to give, you just click on the Chip-In button on Carrie's blog to donate online (you'll see it at the top of the side bar of Carrie's blog). If you'd prefer to write a good, old-fashioned paper check, she tells you how to do it here.
I had the privilege of sharing Cooper's story to kick off the last 7 days of the fundraising drive. But every story shared over the last few days has been AMAZING- and none of it would be possible without donors willing to give up dinner out or going to a movie or some other thing to help save a child like Cooper!
He's so worth it.
To see the kids who are currently waiting for life-saving or life-changing surgeries, check out the list of kids New Day has that are waiting for surgery (and the cost associated with those surgeries). Your donation would go directly to helping one of these precious kids.
