Shirts With Purpose

February 7, 2014

We are incredibly grateful for all of the financial support we have received so far on this adoption journey.  ($4,345 to be exact).  Some of that money was earned through our Christmas ornament fundraiser.  Some of it has simply come from donations.

This money will be a HUGE help to us!  We’re hoping that it will cover most of our airfare to and from China.

However, the total cost for Haven’s adoption is estimated at $30,000.  So, with that in mind, we have decided to take a crack at another fundraiser before bringing him home.

I have created a t-shirt design for Haven.   The design (seen below) will be printed in white ink on the front of a ringspun cotton shirt (soft and light – my FAVORITE t-shirt material!!!).  There won’t be anything printed on the back.  The words written beneath the image are taken from Psalm 107.  “The waves of the sea were hushed, and He guided them to their desired haven.”

The cost for the adult sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL) will be $25.  The color of the shirts will be NAVY TRIBLEND – as shown below.

The cost for the youth sizes (YXS, YS, YM, YL, YXL) will be $23.   The color of these shirts will be CHARCOAL – as shown below.

The cost for the toddler sizes (2T, 3T, 4T, 5/6) will be $21.  The color of these shirts will be GARNET RED – as shown below.

(These shirts will cost us between $7-$10 each, so we will make about $13-$15 per shirt to put toward the adoption.)

Bryan and I will be ordering a shirt for each member of our family.  So, even if this fundraiser is a complete flop, we will each walk away with a special t-shirt to keep as a memento of  Haven’s journey to us : )

If you’re interested in purchasing one of these, please email me, call me, or send me a message via Facebook.

Please send all orders to me by FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28th.  My plan will be to send our collective order to the printer on Monday, March 3rd.  They estimate a 2-week turnaround time.  So, the shirts should be finished by mid-March.

ALL proceeds from the sale of these shirts will be put toward Haven’s adoption and/or medical expenses.

We’re so thankful for all of the support we have received so far.  Financial, emotional, and spiritual.

Regardless of whether or not you can purchase a shirt, please know that prayer is (and has always been) the best gift that you can give to us!

Thank you so much!



“Anxiously you ask, ‘Is there a way to safety?  Can someone guide me?’  The answer is a resounding yes!  Look to the lighthouse of the Lord. There is no fog so dense, no night so dark, no gale so strong, no mariner so lost but what its beacon light can rescue. It beckons through the storms of life.  It calls, ‘This way to safety; this way to home’.”
