Give1Save1 is featuring the Ellis Family!!

I'm so excited! This week is "our" week over at Give1Save1!
Beth Cupitt is such a sweet, giving, wonderful person to have created such an idea as this. Here's a tid-bit from the website explaining what Give1Save1 is all about!


every Monday i’m going to ask you for a dollar. i’m going to tell you who it’s going to and what it’s being used for. we’re mostly funding African adoption for the people, by the people. we’re just going to rain down a crazy blessing on a family, organization, orphanage, or project and we’re going to do it every week. we’re going to get huge. and the world will be changed for lots of people because of your generosity. that sounds exciting, doesn’t it?! let’s do it.

i’ll tell you who we’re sponsoring and where to send your dollar. you’ll need a paypal account to play. if you don’t have a paypal account, you just need one. it’s time. so go ahead and set one up and meet me back here. i’ll link a button to the paypal account that we’ll be blasting. then once you’ve donated your dollar spread the word to get some more dollars in here. if you have a voice, an email account, a blog, a facebook page, a twitter account or a pinboard USE IT! the only way we can make a big difference is to make it viral!


and your dollar will be saving and restoring lives in all kinds of ways. in Ethiopia one in six children don’t live to be five years old. there is a desperate need for basic food, clean water, and medicine. removing a child from an orphanage gives that child a family and a future, something everyone needs. it also frees up a bed in an orphanage for a street child. your dollar will change lives and save lives in ways you may never know.

How awesome is that? She features a new adoptive family every week. She doesn't know these families personally, she just knows the NEED.... and has found a way to make a difference in the lives of many!

So this week is our family. So every dollar you donate goes directly to us! Praise God!

Thank you to everyone that is going to make this the best week ever!!!! We are so grateful to be featured and can't wait to see the wonderful things God has planned for our family!!!!

So go, Give1Save1 and donate your dollar....and remember to go back every week and read the awesome stories of families adopting from Africa and give 1 then too!!!
