Remembering While We Wait: May 19, 2012 PROJECT 5 X 7 ART AUCTION FUNDRAISER

Early in 2012, the concept of Project 5 X 7 was created. Five families bringing home seven children. After months of planning and collecting art, we held a silent art auction as a fundraiser to help the Project 5 X 7 families minimize the high cost of adoption. Due to the generosity of people who donated artwork, purchased art, and donated additional monetary gifts, the auction raised close to $8000 which was divided among the adoptive families. The money was placed in each family's Lifesong For Orphans account to be paid to the adoption agency when needed. What a huge blessing it was to put a dent in our expenses while working side-by-side with precious friends sharing a common goal!
