First official fundraiser on Saturday!

This Saturday, March 24th, Rachel, Hannah and I will be selling crafty things at the Carver Elementary School PTA yard sale and craft show from 9am to 1pm.  I have been staring at this stuff for weeks now, and am convinced a 2nd grader could have done better, but, yet, I forge ahead taking the leap of faith in my craftiness!  Pray that we make a buck or two...

Here is a list of what our trip will cost:

Passports $165 x 2 = $330

Airport transportation $50

Round-trip plane tickets $500 x 2 = $1,000

Vaccinations $50 co-pay x 2 = $100

Room and board $560 x 2 = $1,120

Spending money $250 x 2= $500

Misc. expenses $500

Donation to orphanage $500

Grand total $4,000
If you have been considering a way to contribute to our cause, but want to get a tax receipt for your records, you may mail a check to:
God's Littlest Angels
C/O Kate Bickel-Benson
2283 A Waynoka Rd.
Colorado Springs, CO 80915
Checks must be made payable to God's Littlest Angels and clearly marked in the memo something like "Deb Bello's support on the mission field".


  1. I'm glad you posted how we could donate. Can't promise much, but also can't think of a better way to show our love! Will mail a check today!!! xoxoxo

  2. Awwww, so sweet! Even if we raise only half, or heck, even a third! Joe is supportive, but if I want to be be able to continue with this type of work, I can't take $4,000 out of our savings each time and expect him to continue to smile about it, ya know?

    And if you have any tips on how to de-goof the text size and font discrepancies of the above post, I'd appreciate any suggestions. I am finding that Blogger is fickle this way! I tried hi-lighting it all and resetting the font and size. Saving it to draft and re-posting. But it continues to be all confused :-)
