Go. Seek. Love. Continued

We have exciting news - this time about T-shirts.



In case you are new to my blog, let me fill you in: We have been selling T-shirts with the Go. Seek. Love. logo for over a year now. Daniel, my talented hubby, designed the logo and created a website, www.goseeklove.com, both for selling the shirts and to provide resources for families who are interested in adoption from Ethiopia.


First we sold the shirts to raise money for our own adoption, profiting over $2,000 from the shirt sales. After we finished raising money, we didn't want to shut the website and T-shirt "business" down. God had blessed us so much, and we wanted to pass the blessing along to others. We partnered with another adoptive family and sold shirts to help them to raise money. In four months, we were able to send them almost $2,000 too!


For the past three months we have been selling the shirts to recoup the significant costs of a big screen printing order that we placed. But now...


We are ready to partner with another adoptive family!


From now until Saturday May 1st, we will be accepting applications to become our partner family for the next three months.


Anyone who is in the process of adopting a child from Africa and who needs help raising money is eligible to apply. You only need to have sent in an application to an adoption agency and had your application accepted. You do not have to have completed your home study. Please click here to go to http://www.goseeklove.com/partner_faq.html for all of the specific information about how to apply. It is very easy!


Unfortunately, we only have the infrastructure and inventory to allow us to work with one family at time. But if God allows, we plan to continue this indefinitely, partnering with a new family every three months.


The job of the partner family is just MARKETING. Blog about it, send out email blasts to your friends and family, and write about the T-shirts on Facebook and Twitter. Your profits will depend on how well you promote your cause. We will do all of the order fulfillment, and we will send you a check with 100% of the net proceeds once a month.


If you are interested check out the details on our website and get your application in a.s.a.p. (Deadline is May 1st.) We will make our decision by Monday May 10th. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at family@duboisadoption.com. We can't wait to hear from you!

Incredible!! My husband and i just submitted our adoption application (Ethiopia!!) last night... here's hoping we get accepted before May 1st!! Obviously, i say that for many reasons. Regardless, i think what you are doing is absolutely incredible. Some family (fingers crossed it might be us) is going to be so blessed.

This is so cool! You guys are amazing for reaching past your own family and helping other adoptive families. Looking forward to being one of your families someday.
