Sample Adoption Fundraising

This page was set up during our adoption for shopping and other things we sold for fundraising and donations. I'm leaving it on our blog since so many people ask us questions. I hope to make it more effective in the future.


Thank you so much for your generosity and support. We have been more humbled than ever during this process. We also love that each of you are a part of caring for orphans through helping support others who are adopting. We appreciate every handful of change and large check that has been sent to us.

So, if you would like to make a donation to our adoption, you can contact us by
Email:  jess dot mariecarpenter at gmail dot com
or check out the info below.

Use the link on our main page, this goes directly to our adoption bank account. 

Checks can be sent to :

My Facebook Fundraising Page: 

I just added a new facebook page to hopefully help with all my orders for the things I'm making & selling.You can "like" it on facebook at
This is where we posted updates, where we posted about Meili Joy's bday Razoo fundraiser, and where I sold bird's nests, head bands, etc.

I have now turned this into our home based business for bird's nests.

Tax Deductible Donations::
We are an approved Hope Family with Journety Together. If you would like a check to be run through our non-profit, you can write the check to Journey Together Ministries and put "Carpenter Fund" on the memo line. You can mail it to our address above. We do get 100% of these funds. You can also mail it directly to:

***If you are not local and approved as a Hope Family with JTM, please investigate Pure Charity. ( They will allow you to set up a fundraising page that will send donations to your agency and will be tax deductible for you.
Just Love Coffee
You can also support us through purchasing coffee from
*Please always start with our link so that we get credit for each purchase
*PPS Don't worry, if you have a Keurig, you can get reusable K-cups & use our coffee. One of my best friends is doing that and she is a self-proclaimed "coffee snob" and loves Just Love's coffee.

147 Million Orphans
We are also an affiliate fundraiser with 147 Million Orphans.
Our special link is here: 

*Please always start with our link so that we get credit for each purchase.
**You can also use the link at the bottom of our home page on our blog. Again, please start there.
***If you are local, Jessica keeps the Uganda beads on had, and we do get a bit more "profit" if they are bought in person. However, most other products from 147 will allow us a 30% donation.

We are trying to really try a lot of different options because we hope to encourage other families as they adopt. We also believe we'll be helping support others in their adoption efforts and hope to eventually help seed an adoption fund for Charleston families.

Thomas Kinkade:: Emerald Isle Gallery Proof

Thomas Kinkade: Emerald Isle Gallery Proof w/ additional hand signature on the back. All correct papers. This is not a print that you put behind glass. Will consider offers starting at $2,000. I am the owner. I will let it go for the $2,000. Just putting this out there. It's in the original Burl frame. I worked in the gallery, so I knew his prints fairly well a decade ago.
