Help me and Get a FREE Treasure Africa decal!!


OK... So here's the deal!! I'm desperate and I need some ideas on wording for a fundraising party that we are having before we leave for Africa! We are planning a "donation" party, inviting all our friends and family to pitch in and help!! I have a list of items we are asking for, and of course monetary donations (to benefit the village) are always welcome!! I want to make cute little invites asking for help.

Obviously the invite will have the general info; date, time and place, but I need to add an impactual statement that will make my friends and family WANT to give, to WANT to help. Anyone who has checked out my ETSY shop knows we feature the quote "As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person" by Paul Shane Spear. I would like to incorporate that into the invite, but just don't know how....

I've never been one to ask for help, I'd rather bust my ass and get it done myself, but this is a task that is much bigger than I can handle on my own. I know my family and friends will give generously, but I want them to feel compelled help.....

TREASURE AFRICA DECAL: Black vinyl decal, in the shape of Africa. Inspirational words cover the decal in white and the word "treasure" in red. Can be easily applied on any surface, such as car windows, walls, mirrors, wood, metal, etc.

Easy application:Remove protective covering, apply to clean surface. Measures:6 1/4" by 5 1/4"

Help me out!! Give me your suggestions and post my ETSY link on your Blog, and I will send you a TREASURE Africa decal FREE!!!!

Thanks in advance!!


  1. You could put your logo on the front of the invite, and inside

    On top:
    Matthew 10:42 "And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward."

    ** Don't miss this opportunity to send a cup of blessings to Christ's little ones in Ethiopia. You provide the cup, we'll provide the bucket over! Together we can make an impact on the lives of these precious little ones that Christ held so dear, will you join me??

    Help to make a little one's world a little more brighter through your donations:
    (and list what items may be recommended)

    **I'll let you know if something better hits me, good luck!!

  2. Hi. I recently found your blog, and as a mommy waiting for her kids to come home from Ethiopia, I am excited to see how your fundraiser blesses others!

    For a few of our fundraisers, I designed invites using photos with children from Ethiopia on it, allowing people to see the beauty of these children and the country, not just the "need". I struggle with asking others to help/donate and yet have been left in awe as people tell me how blessed they are to be able to help others.

    I think your "where you live should NOT determine whether you live" button you have on your blog could be on the invite too.

    Not sure if that's much help, but I'll stick your etsy shop button on my blog to help send traffic your way!

  3. Oh my gosh, I love the decal. We are in the process of adopting from Africa also. I think the black and white logo with the red is powerful. We are doing a raffle to help with donations. I don't know if that idea would help you or not also. I will post your link.
