Win It Before You Can Buy It!

I am SO excited!! For months we've been working on, tweaking, changing, messing, and perfecting our very own shirts. We knew in our heads what we wanted it to look like and getting there was 1/2 the battle. We're there. We designed our own shirts!!! Of course having an amazing design team helps! THANK YOU JEREMY and JESSICA! We love them. I hope you love them as much as we do! We wanted something unique yet something that appealed to all kinds of people in order to raise awareness of the orphan crisis all over the world.

We wanted a lot of color options too. This design has orphan facts uniquely placed behind the globe. We chose the number 153 orphans based on Unicefs best guesstimate on the number of orphans in the world. They state this: It is estimated there are between 143 million and 210 million orphans worldwide (recent UNICEF report.) We then gathered the facts from the US, Africa, Ethiopia, Asia, etc etc. Those are also on the shirt. The "sight" over Africa is for our particular family as God has called us to adopt from Ethiopia, we have a deep love for Africa and therefore our personal focus is there. Up near the top of the globe is a hand which signifies that each of us can make a difference, give a hand, help out, and work together. Round it all out with Love which is what drives us to adopt, to help, and to care for these precious orphans.




The back has Africa on it and the bold statement that "Where You Live Should NOT Determine IF you live"
Here's the deal. I have a limited supply that I got in to make sure we loved them. We do. They are PERFECT! We'll be selling pre-orders for these rockin shirts starting Monday June 21st. BUT you can win one now. Yes its another giveaway. This time in honor of being at the 1/2 way point for our dossier fund raising goal! We're SO close!!
