Yard Sale 2.0

Remember back in April/May when we asked for your help with a yard sale to benefit our adoption? It was so successful and helped us so much that we’re planning Yard Sale 2.0. SO….

We Need Your Help AGAIN!

As you may know, international adoption is a costly process. We are “eating the elephant one bite at a time” [I realize that this metaphor is horrible, but it is slightly apropos to the process of adoption – you  really can’t think about the total costs at one time or you will go mad.]: We need to raise approximately $2,000 for our next adoption payment.

So how can you be involved? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4 {insert Feist song here}

1. Donate your old stuff!

One man’s (or woman’s) trash is another man’s (or woman’s) treasure! Donations really made our last yard sale a HUGE success. So we’re asking for your help again. If you have any old items that you’d like to get rid of, let us know – we’ll even come by to pick them up! Make room for new stuff! Clean out your closet! Donate that pile that’s been sitting in the garage!  You’ll have a huge part in helping us get Baby Shows home.

Need some ideas on what you can donate? Last May, folks donated everything from furniture to bikes to electronics:

  • Kids bikes
  • Pictures
  • Glassware, housewares, Tupperware
  • Small kitchen/house appliances
  • Clothes, handbags
  • Baby/kid stuff
  • Furniture
  • Electronics, computers
  • DVDs, CDs
2. Tell your friends!

Maybe you don’t have any stuff to donate because you donated in May – no worries! You can help by sharing about your yard sale with your friends and family. Ask them if they would be willing to make a donation to our yard sale or come by on November 5 (more information on Facebook).

3. Help out at the yard sale

So the last yard sale was made possible because we had a small army who helped out – helping to set-up, managing the items, talking with customers, negotiating prices, and helping tear down. And this was all in the blistering heat that is May in Florida. So we could definitely use help at the yard sale if you are interested.

4. Or come shopping!

Feel free to stop by and check out the sale on November 5! Look for the penguin!

Another quick notes of thanks…

We have been blessed tremendously by folks who have been involved with supporting our adoption to the tune of more than $9,500 total. CRAZY! Thanks to everyone.
