I had a friend, Amanda, who had approached me about doing a fundraiser through Thirty-One. This company is popular, but if you haven’t heard of them you can check them out at http://www.mythirtyone.com/warden/. They sell lunch bags, purses, beach bags and many more items. They are quality items and so far I have only heard good things about their products.
Here is where you come in. Would you consider hosting a catalog or online party in Silas’ name? The cool thing is people all over the states can help us with this. You don’t have live close to us to host a party. Amanda said she would take care of all the details for us. All you have to do is contact her. Here are the two options.
1) Invite friends to your house where they can look at the thirty one catalog. If you want to get creative I could send you pictures of Silas, you could decorate your home in an African theme or serve African food.
2) Through Amanda's website you will be able to send Evites to your friends. You could set a specific time and date for this online party. So there is no party in your home, but just friends ordering online. That's it!
We are thinking that these parties would take place sometime in April. Amanda said there are some great rewards in the month of April. In addition to helping a great cause the host person will also get FREE GIFTS from ThirtyOne.
Another way to help us is if you have some extra flyer miles you would like to donate to us to help bring home Silas. The price of tickets are going up quickly because of the Olympics coming up soon. Within a two week time period tickets have gone up 400 dollars.
We should be sending out our second round of evidence to Nairobi hopefully this week and then we wait again. Please pray that we take the right steps according to God’s timing.
Please continue to pray for our hearts as well as Silas in preparing us for our reunion. We desperately want to pick up where we left off.
Please also continue to pray for our finances. We still have to pay for his ticket, cost of going to Uganda for a week, his visa is going to cost 404 dollars, updated home study, and the cost of sending our evidence again.
Again, if you host a party in your home or online you will get a cool FREE GIFT. If you are interested or have questions you can contact me on facebook or at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can contact Amanda at http://www.mythirtyone.com/warden/
