Adoption Fundraiser on October 14th
On October 14th from 5-8 pm we will be having a special fundraiser for our adoption. Chick-Fil-A in Brentwood (330 Franklin Rd.-in the shopping center with Kroger, McAllisters, Borders, etc.) is generously allowing us to do a spirit night on October 14th from 5-8 to help raise money for the adoption. From 5-8 on Thursday, October 14th you can go eat at
Chick-Fil-A (Brentwood only-eat in AND drive-through) and 15% of the sales go towards our Adoption Fundraiser "He's My Brother". I will have cards to hand out there or you can just tell them when you pay that you are supporting the "He's My Brother" Fundraiser and they'll mark it on your receipt. The folks at Chick-Fil-A will know what you are talking about. We will also have little buckets set out for anyone who wants to make a cash donation. So many people have asked "How can I help or What Can I do?" This is really the best way to help. Chick-Fil-A has been so generous to allow us to do this. Feel free to send this to anyone who LOVES Chick-Fil-A and who you think would enjoy coming (I'm attaching the flyer). I hope to see some of you there!

P.S.-Here's the reason we're calling it the "He's My Brother" Fundraiser One night at dinner while talking about the adoption, Will (my 5 year
old) said:
Even if Ethiopia(EE-FEE-O-PEE-A-Will's version) is far away Even if we don't know what he looks like
Even if we don't know how old he is
Even if we don't know his name
He's my brother
None of that other stuff matters
I know in my heart
He's my brother
Have more beautiful words ever been spoken? Isn't it really that simple?
