A Night for Orphans in ATL

Ok, it’s been ruminating long enough, there’s something pretty spectacular that’s about to happen in Atlanta, and I want you to be a part of it:

A Sponsorship and Fundraising event that’s gonna knock your socks off, but you have to attend, it won’t be enough to like us on Facebook, although that would be really nice and you can do that here.  It won’t be enough for you for read about it and say, “That’s cool.  I hope it goes well.”  It won’t be enough unless you’re there, so I’ll tell you a little bit more about it and hope that’s all the fuel you’ll need to get yourselves here April 5th at 7 p.m.

It’s been a little while since I’ve talked about Adacar, shared about Martin, but there’s more to my story, more to Martin’s story and I am going to share all about it that evening.  I also want to say two more things:

1) Ok, I may have stretched the truth just a teensy bit to get you to come to the event by saying the only way you can make a difference is to be there, but there is a way you can contribute even if you are miles away: sponsor a child in Adacar by going here.

2) Almost four years ago, my friend, Melanie, “caught the vision” that Children’s HopeChest was establishing for Adacar, and has recently given us an update on it’s progress here.  It is simply amazing and nothing but God when you see how far it’s come.  She also recently shared on where they are heading, and that is what this fundraiser is all about, raising money for a ditto machine and a scholarship fund.  As she mentioned in her post, primary education in Adacar is free right now, but secondary education is about $600/year, a fee these kids or their caretakers simply cannot afford.

So, come, bring a listening ear for some beautiful music brought to you by the Sacred Harp Singers of Atlanta and spending money to purchase some beautiful fair trade goods as well those made in our very own peach state.

I’ll leave you with the details:
