Both Hands Foundation

We are sooooo excited to have found this fairly new fundraising opportunity through the Both Hands Foundation, a partnership of Lifesong For Orphans......scripture tells us in James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keeps oneself from being polluted by the world." So often in the adoption movement we have a strong conviction for the orphans, but unintentionally overlook the widows.

Through Both Hands Foundation, both the orphan & widow are ministered to. In a nutshell, sponsorship letters are sent out by the adoptive couple and some of their close friends/family. Think the traditional "will you sponsor me as I play golf/run a 5K/walk in a walk-a-thon for a specific non-profit...etc?"......the difference here is people are financially sponsored to spend a Saturday working on a widow's home & all funds raised go toward a family's adoption!!

A quote by Billy Graham sums it all up....."God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with".........

We have just discovered this opportunity & are still researching the possibility, but I highly recommend clicking on the Both Hands banner above for more information. VERY EXCITING - truly a God inspired idea!
