Insert Clever Title Here

As I write this, I'm rocking out to Toby Mac on KLOVE and trying to come up with another clever title.  So far, I've got nothing...though by the time you read this post, there will be a title - clever or not.

I'll start with a quick update.  Our online auction is in full swing!  We began on Thursday, February 21 and have raised $125 so far.  All monies earned through the auction will be divided between Lacey and myself.  We would like to thank all of our sponsors once again for their donations of products and services.  Check out the links to our sponsors on the left side of the blog.  You can visit our auction on Facebook here - https://www.facebook.com/groups/auction4momsmissionofhope/

Lacey is a ROCKSTAR!!  She has compiled the funds required to be donated directly to Home of Hope and her current total is $2080!  Way to go girl!!  Lacey is still collecting cash donations to go toward immunization costs, flight taxes, donations to be left in Africa, and other incidentals. If you would like to send her a cash donation, please email her at lacey.klassen@gmail.com to make arrangements.

I, Michelle, am still at my previous total of $448.22, but I'm confident the Lord will provide.  We're working hard to raise funds and the rest is in His hands. You can still donate to Home of Hope in my stead by using the "Donate" button on the top left of this page and putting my name in the comments box.  If you'd like to send me a cash donation, please email me at michelle.maisonville@gmail.com for my mailing address.

In other fundraising news, we're looking into doing a Tupperware fundraiser as well.  So if you or someone you know needs some kitchen goodies, please keep us in mind.  We'll make sure to post an update when the fundraiser is set-up.  

Children from the feeding programme in Rwanda
We are also receiving donations of baby items, children's items, bras, and other necessities from some of our wonderful friends.  Thank you so much for your generosity.  It touches our hearts and we know how much it will bless the people of Rwanda and Kenya.  We can't wait to see their faces when we give them these gifts.

On Monday, February 25, we will be featured in the BirthSource.com blog run by my friend, Connie Livingston.  Be sure to check it out.  If you are a childbirth professional, you'll also want to browse her online store for a large selection of childbirth education supplies!  Thank you so much, Connie, for thinking of us!

That's all the news for now.  Please keep checking here for updates!  Thank you once again for all of your support and prayers.  We appreciate it!

Hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend!

God bless!
