Two Weeks.

Time is quickly running out on Angel Tree season! There are only 2 weeks left to help all of the children make their goals.

There are so many children still under $200, and the majority are still under half-way there. However, we've seen miracles happen every year for these kids, so I have no doubt that if we put in the effort we can make a lot of progress and do a lot of good.

Please help out! You can look at the children here and donate to whomever you feel most drawn to (my kiddos are Asherton and Robert if you feel called to help them out. They are both older boys and sadly, older boys are the most neglected and least "popular" as far as adoption goes.)

If you can't donate, that's 100% okay! You can still help. Please share the Angel Tree! Exposure is so important--just think, a Facebook or tweet that takes only a few minutes of your time to compose could end up bringing in a large donation from a childhood friend who is feeling charitable, or maybe even introduce a parent to their future child! Pick and child and urge your friends to donate and/or share them as well.

If you're looking for another present for someone in your life this holiday season, consider a printable from my shop, Light.Live.Do. I have dozens of printables available, including many Bible verses and adoption related ones, and I'm also more than happy to make you something custom! (Simply convo me on Etsy or leave a comment here with what quote and design you want!) You can frame these and they will make lovely Christmas presents to add some decoration to a loved one's wall. You print these yourself from home or a photo center (at Walmart, Walgreens, etc.) so no worries about shipping time before Christmas. Each printable costs only $5 and every penny is donated to the Angel Tree!


Please do what you can to help and spread the word in the next two weeks. You won't regret it--these children are so worth it, every single one of them.

"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40
blessings + a merry Christmas,

Angel Tree 2015!

It’s that time again!

Angel Tree 2015 is here! I’m super excited, as always, for November 1. I wouldn’t miss Angel Tree for anything—it’s the greatest experience, every year. So, who will I be advocating for this year? Well, none other than these two cuties: Asherton and Robert!


My first Angel Tree, I advocated for a 5 year old girl, Suzanne (that girl still has my heart, and hopefully someday it will be possible for her to be adopted. Every year since, it’s been a boy. 2012 was Dmitri, 2013 Hale (my only angel tree kiddo who has found a family) and Jasper, 2014 Artemur.


I really gravitate towards boys—older boys specifically—but it’s funny because that is the very type of child the least people gravitate towards. Most people want a baby girl. I love that I feel so called to kids who really the attention. If I ever adopt, it will absolutely be an older boy.

So, what will I be doing to raise money and awareness for Asherton and Robert? Well, as always, I have my Etsy shop Light. Live. Do. where I sell printables that you can hang up on your walls as decoration. I have a lot of Bible verse/adoption related ones, and I'm always more than happy to take a custom request! They only cost $5 and every single penny I receive gets donated to Reece's Rainbow!

I can also design blogs, flyers, etc. Just talk to me and I'm happy to design whatever you're looking for (email: lightlivedo@yahoo.com).

Here's hoping that this is a wonderful year for the Angel Tree and that all of us warriors will have success in our fundraising and advocacy efforts. Donate if you can, and if not, share the Angel Tree and the kids! Exposure is just as important as money. Who knows, your tweet or facebook post could make its way to an Angel Tree child's future parent!

be blessed,
Sydney
