Mud Love Fundraiser $10 Shipped

Mudlove is a great company that gives 20% of their sales to help give clean water in Africa! So when you buy a bracelet from our fundraiser, not only will 100% of the proceeds benefit our adoption, but 20% of the actual cost of the bracelet will go towards clean drinking water for people in Africa.

For every $10 you donate towards our adoption fund,
you can pick the MudLove bracelet [no shipping fees] of your choice.

To order yours, use the donate button to the right and let me know in your note which band(s) you want.
Check out our Smith Family Adoption Fundraising page for up to date band colors and quantities.

Online Silent Auction

We are headed to Uganda again to reunite Brenda with her brother and we so need y'alls help!!!  This is SOOO out of our comfort zone, but we have no choice but to fundraise to bring him home.

As many of you know, this will be our second adoption this year.  Who would have thought this would be apart of God's story???

From September 21 until September 28 Sep 14 until Sep 21 we will be holding an online silent auction to help get us closer to our $12,000 goal.  

If you have anything that you'd like to donate or if you know someone or a business who might be willing to help, please contact me by September 4.

Ideas include gift cards for national chains, handmade items (knit, lotions, soap, sewing, etc), jewelry,  electronics, books, local services (photography, lawn mowing) and almost anything else new/unused that you can think of. 

All money raised will go directly to our adoption fund and we will give any shops/businesses who donate a lot of good PR!

The online auction will open on September 14 and it will run for about one week. 

If you would like to contribute an item, please:

1. Email me a clear photo of the item(s) with a description and approximate value to

2.  Links to your Facebook page, website, and/or shop.

3. Your name and the best email address to reach you.

Y'all, I’m believing that God will use this auction to provide far above and beyond what we need to complete this adoption. 

I know, I’m dreamin’ BIG here. But I believe the GOSPEL changes everything. 

Please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE this post so we can get as many great items as possible for the auction!

Dear Jesus, Let the money fall from heaven!!
