The Fundraising Journey
Blog post written by Jenni Ramsey
One of the highlights of the fundraising process is watching God supernaturally provide for our team members. I love going to the mailbox each day, opening the envelopes and watching my Excel spreadsheet miraculously reach that ultimate, red goal. One of our June team members received a large donation recently from some neighbors that she barely knew. Needless to say, she was deeply touched and immediately went to the neighbors to thank them. We are SO THANKFUL for the thousands of people who have supported our team members over the years. We would be unable to serve the children of Central America without the generous support of family and friends.
Our June El Salvador team is currently short $3,000 and our July team needs $8,000 to serve this summer. If you would like to support our team financially, tax-deductible checks can be written to "All Blessings Intl" and mailed to 95 Spring Valley, Irvine, CA 92602.
Lauren Ludovico is a member of our July team who is currently doing some creative fundraising. She is a junior at Crean Lutheran High School and happens to live in our neighborhood (in Irvine). We quickly learned that Lauren LOVES math and our boys were in need of a math tutor! Our family has been blessed to support Lauren's trip through the tutoring costs and our boys are improving in math. It's been a win-win! Lauren swims for Crean Lutheran High School and coaches with Riptide Swim Team. She attended OCSA (Orange County School of the Arts) for four years and has a beautiful voice. Lauren is available to tutor in math or English, provide swim coaching, vocal training, housework and loves to babysit. If you would like to use any of Lauren's services and support her trip costs, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support, prayers and encouragement!!!
