Non Profit Shout Out/Blog Link Up

Time to write about non profits that we love! Woohoo! Guess what most of mine will be about? {Read what my friends wrote about at Holley’s linkup.} There are too many to list but leave me your favorite in the comments if you think it needs mentioning!

Not a non profit, but a pretty cool ministry…Give1Save1. We blog about adoption, family, art, and whatever else strikes our fancy. Families can be on the blog and fundraise for a week to help fund their adoptions. We have Africa, Asia (<<<<-I blog there), Europe, US and Caribbean pages.

Next up is Reece’s Rainbow. An adoption advocacy site. Waiting children are featured, prayed for, and are able to have grants funded for their families.  Awesomeness.

Another favorite is International Justice Mission. They are a human rights agency that rescues victims of slavery, exploitation and abuse.  It’s a big deal.

Social justice is HUGE to me! To see people struggling, taken advantage of, hungry,  hurt and to do nothing is not okay. Jesus healed, touched the unclean, ate with the poor, spent time with the least of these.  It’s about redemption. 

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8

Orphan Advocacy–Reece’s Rainbow and Holt

Time to do a bit of orphan advocacy, or, you know….James 1:27.  (by the way, “pure religion” was almost the name of this blog…just fyi)

Reece’s Rainbow advocates for waiting children.  There are 100s of children in need of families. If you feel called to adopt, visit their site and learn more.  If you want to donate to waiting children’s grants, you can.  That grant is given to their family when they are matched and ready to travel.

Here are a few of the waiting children… Justin, age 1 1/2. He has Down’s Syndrome and heart issues.  He has a huge grant to help his family bring him home.  Is it you?

Meet Miss Naomi.  She is 5, beautiful and has Cerebral Palsy. Her country is open to single moms.

And on the Holt Waiting Child Page, there are boys and girls waiting. Waiting for their forever families.

What? Did you ask about requirements to adopt? Look here for info about several countries.

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them. (Proverbs 3:27)

I’m glad you stopped by today!
