Anyways, Mark (the pastor) encouraged each of us to come up with our own, unique way to raise money. One girl designed a shirt with a sweet logo, that has become a trademark for the whole campaign that Praxis is doing. Matt made stickers, using that logo (those are $2 (or $1, I'm not sure), so they buy part of a Bible, but more importantly, they get the word out. Someone bought water bottles at Vons and then re-sold them at Huntington Beach for a donation. Another guy bought a bible for each birdie that he shot in a tournament, and his mom matched him with 4 bibles per birdie. That's 50 bibles right there! We are also collecting change, some people are turning in recycling and using that money for Bibles for Congo. I tried to think of what I could do (bake sale, make hats (which would TOTALLY copy what we did for Invisible Children), etc) and came up with an idea to reach moms, and people with friends or relatives who had babies.
Onesies! So I have sewed on a little Africa and painted on, Bibles for Congo. I will post the pictures here, let me know if you want to buy a specific one. And a little note about the sizes, they run WAY smaller than what they are. So a 6-9 would fit a newborn to like 3 or 4 months. A 10-12 fits a 6-9. etc. I have a few completely finished right now, which I will post, and then I have more (in larger sizes) which are almost done! Let me know if you need a different size and if it is for a boy or girl or one that could go either way (like the orange one). You can either leave a comment or facebook me or email me, if you know that info! Sorry the pictures are sideways, I can't figure out how to change that!
This is basically what the onesie looks like:
6-9 months (I don't know why it's not rotated): SOLD! Yay!
6-9 months: SOLD! Another Bible to Congo!
6-9 months: SOLD!!!! Woohoo
