Good morning everyone! I've been quiet for several days, just asking the Lord how to proceed. Still continuing to get input from some folks and still looking for more direction from Him. It's sort of reminds me of the Lord telling Moses to get the children of Israel out of Egypt. Moses went, as we all know, but didn't know how it was all going to work out. Now, obviously I'm not comparing myself to Moses. Just saying that sometimes the Lord calls us to do things that we have no idea how to accomplish initially. Well, I have been and am still in the 'initially'!
Some of you are on Facebook and have joined the Heart Notes for Haiti group. For those of you who aren't, I invite you to join. There will be ongoing updates here, but it would also be great to see that group grow and for all of its members to be able to connect there. Below is what I posted to the fb group this morning...
Making calls - looking for locations for concerts. Thoughts? Suggestions? Helpers? Hmmm...hello everyone! Some of you have already let me know that you have clothing, household items and furniture to donate. I think that's wonderful, but we don't have a place to store those items until they can be sold and conver...ted into cash. My sis, Linda, suggested that people have garage sales, then send the proceeds to Heart Notes for Haiti. I sort of stretched the idea out a bit and came up with having huge Heart Notes for Haiti Garage Sales this Spring, combined with an all day concert - many artists and a gigantic cookout. There may be someone with a good sized piece of property or land who is willing to offer their location to host the event. It could be like a giant all-day party, with wonderful ministry and networking opportunities. Some of you could also organize a community or neighborhood garage sale in your cities or towns, if you're not in the KC area. Anyone interested in any of those ideas? If so, let me know. Obviously, there will be relief efforts going on for a long time. Or, if you want to make a donation now but don't have funds to do so, why not put those garage sale items on craigslist or ebay and then donate through paypal? We already have paypal on the website, so it should be very easy for anyone who's interested. Just go to the website, www.heartnotesforhaiti.org. There are links on every page. Okay, back to brainstorming and calling. Hey, is anyone out there interested in getting on the phones and promoting our concerts? If so, please let me know. :)
So there you have it. This is where we are right now in our fundraising efforts. To do a concert, we need a location. Anyone out there have a location? Let me know! Hopefully, some of the other fundraising ideas listed above will spark your interest or springboard you on to other ways to help.
Blessings to all of you. Thanks so much for following these little posts. I appreciate, love and pray for every one of you. Have a fabulous day! :)
