Clicking for Congo!

There are so many super easy ways that we can help people in the Congo. Here's an insanely easy one- and it doesn't cost you a thing. Our Family Adoptions- an amazing non-profit humanitarian organization- is up for a grant from Chase Community Giving. Chase is awarding a $250,000 grant to the organization that gets the most votes in their contest. I realize that that is super ambitious. But the really cool thing is that they award $20,000 to each organization that finishes in the top 200. Right now the 200th place organization only has 243 votes! If only half of the people who read this blog every day follow the link and vote- we've got that beat in a day! Come on! We can do it!!!

Our Family Adoptions uses all the money that comes in to the organization to care for orphans in the Congo. They feed them, clothe them, staff orphanages, buy formula, send kids to school, buy medications, dig wells... the list goes on and on. The point is this- they do amazing things and are all volunteer run (so they have zero overhead)! And with just a couple of clicks, you can ensure they get a big ol' fat grant to keep doing awesome things and making a difference in the lives of kids in the Congo! $20,000 can do a whole lot of good! Click on the link below to vote.

UPDATED!!! My great friend Carrie just contacted me and said that she has some awesome Congolese treasures they picked up in Kinshasa that she will donate (giveaway style!) to people who vote. She has a handcarved wooden box and some Congolese jewelry that she wants to entice you with. If you click the link and vote for Our Family Adoptions- leave me a comment and tell me so! You'll earn an entry at the Congolese goods. Blog or repost the link on Facebook or Twitter and earn an extra chance! (Don't forget to tell me you shared the link in your comment) Since voting wraps up July 13th- we'll end the giveaway fun then.  The REAL winners are the kids you'll be helping so GO VOTE AND SPREAD THE WORD!!!!
