*Creative Fundraising Ideas For Adopting Families*

Most posts on this blog are directed specifically towards 'our' adoption, and what 'we' are doing to raise money, and blah, blah, blah. Well, today I wanted to change that. I wanted to provide a running list of some of the best fundraising idea's out there for adopting families, or really anyone that's needing to raise money. As most of you know, I'm not a creative person, so basically all of these idea's were given to me in some way or another, but regardless of their origin, I hope they prove to be successful for you :)

1.) Yard Sales.
5.) Sell homemade ornaments (Thanks JT & Natalie).
8.) Personalized blog, with a PayPal donation link.
10.) Cookbook fundraiser.

As you can see, some of these have been linked because we have tried them, and we have more information available on them. Others are linked to a wonderful couple that has gone down this road before, and is doing so again, so please, check out JT and Natalie's site. They are a wealth of information (thanks again for dinner guys).

And a much deserved thank you to all of you who have contributed to this list, as I pray God uses it to bless many, many, more families!!! Love you all.


  1. Brilliant article, I've really enjoyed reading this. I have recently discovered Tony Charalambides fundraising blog, you should check it out!

  2. The Platform fee is the fee you pay to the crowdfunding company itself. Theres an alternative crowdfunding site that is free. visit Learn more about how works here, and start a visual crowdfunding campaign when you're ready.

  3. There is some strategy involved in crowdfunding, especially when you raise money to reduce debt. It may not be tactical to start a campaign called: “Please fix my debt problem”, see
