We have avoided fundraising in the past, not because we think it is wrong, but we just never expected to adopt seven children.
However, we have been given a grant through Orphan Care Alliance. They will match up to $6000. So if you give $50, then your $50 becomes $100.
We have the potential to raise $12,000 towards our adoption.
The money is a tax deductible gift, donated through an organization called Lifesong. OCA then matches the amount and Lifesong sends us a check to help cover adoption cost. Any money that goes into our account beyond that $6000 still is tax deductible, and will come to us, it just isn't doubled. We appreciate your support and prayers!
To Give: Checks should be payable to “Lifesong for Orphans". In the memo, write (Willoughby / #5285)- to assure it goes to the correct account.
Please mail to: Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40, Gridley, IL 61744.

Note PayPal charges an administrative fee (2.9% + $.30 USD per transaction). Your donation will be decreased by the amount of this fee.
