New fundraiser and a Giveaway

Okay my friends. We have finally decided on a design for our adoption tshirt!! I’m so excited. I have been working with the tshirt people for a few weeks and this is what we came up with!

shirt Yes, I know this is not the best picture but you get the idea! Defend the Fatherless in bold blue- the verse beside it in white is “Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.” Psalm 82:3 An outline map of the world is the background of the shirt. I love the verse on the shirt. God calls us to care for the fatherless and the weak. To help the poor and the oppressed. Jesus did it all the time in the Bible. So should we.
The shirt will be a dark gray color. I definitely wanted a shirt that was not just a woman’s shirt! I wanted men to be able to wear it too! For a donation of $20 toward our adoption, this tshirt can be yours! Joey and I are beyond excited as to where this adoption road is taking us. More details to come. But just know that we have been praying for direction and guidance. Until more details come about, we need to raise some money. So please consider supporting our adoption of a precious child and make a donation. You will get a tshirt in return! Plus you will be helping us bring our little baby home.
I know I’ve said this before, but adoption can be so overwhelming in the beginning. When I first thought of all the expenses, I just could not figure out how we could come up with $20,000 to $30,000; however, God has consistently provided when we needed it. It is overwhelming, yes. But God is in control and He is good and He will provide!
Okay, so if you would like to order a tshirt….. email me at jillcarpenter@hotmail.com  I hope to get my Paypal set up on the sidebar of my blog next week so that people can order that way as well. But until then, please email me or facebook me your order. And if a tshirt isn’t your thing, you can still make a donation. Joey and I truly appreciate any and all support!
And to help spread the word about our shirts, I’m going to have a giveaway. I will be giving away a tshirt to one lucky person! Here is how you can enter:
1. Become a follower of my blog and let me know by leaving a comment (or if you already are, tell me so in the comments)

3. Order a tshirt and leave me a comment letting me know you did! 1 entry per tshirt ordered- so if you order 3, that’s 3 entries!
