10 Days

Today I share something with you, because bloggers have voices that need to be heard. As bloggers, we have the ability to share content and spread word about so many important causes. We're not just foodies sharing recipes, or crafters sharing DIY projects (although both of those are amazingly awesome!). We are and can be so much more than that. We are social influencers too. We are people with visions, hopes, dreams. As my bloggy friend Shane says, we can move mountains together. And bringing a baby to a family and a home is incredible. Take a look below at an opportunity to help a family out in a time of need. I saw a post at Satisfaction through Christ and was inspired by the story. So I decided to share it.

Meet Merissa.

Just last week Merissa, of Little House Living,  shared that she and her husband were preparing for their first adoption fundraiser.  The blogging community quickly shared their need for donated items and hoped that many of you would come alongside of them in that effort.  But, to our surprise, Merissa announced on Sunday that they had just been chosen to be the parents of a healthy baby boy born on that same day (read the full story here)!  

Today the blogging community has the opportunity to come alongside of Merissa and her family as they adopt this precious baby boy into their family!

Merissa and her husband are traveling to pick up their new son on Wednesday, but they have not had time to do any of their fundraising. It's all happening so fast. They need a little help to make it happen.

They need $12,000 in 10 days.

$12,000 sounds like a lot doesn't it?

It is.

But even by giving just $10, it can make a huge difference! It can create a family.

Can you forego a cup of coffee or a fast food lunch this week in order to bring home a new life?

Not only that, would you share this with your friends?  Email it, Facebook it, Tweet it, Pin it, Stumble it, G+ it.  Whatever you can do.  And if you're a blogger that might be willing to blog about Merissa's story, please leave a comment below or email me and I'll forward you the details!  

Life is worth it.  Adoption is worth it.

Let's bring this baby boy home!!
