It's that time again!

In just a little over a month it will be time again to pay for Janelle's tuition. If you can help, please click on the 'make a donation' button to the right of the screen (under the yellow chat box) and give a donation via paypal. Otherwise you can send a check to my mom or Josh's mom who can deposit it into our account. When I have enough money I will wire the money to Ramil.

For those of you who don't know, I have been organising the raising of funds to pay for tuition for a wee lass in the Philippines. While public schools are available, they are overcrowded and do not offer an adequate education to help a child succeed. We are paying for Janelle to go to a private school, which means we need about $500. If you can only give $5-10 it is certainly very helpful. Josh and I usually end up paying for a large portion of this. We enjoy helping our friends in this way, but if we can get others to help that would be fantastic. There are friends and family members who have already given so generously in the past couple of years. Please consider giving just a little bit and tell a friend whom you think may be interested in helping, too.

I have started a yahoo group for those who have sponsored in the past. It contains some messages and pictures from the family. I sent some invites earlier and some have not accepted the invite. If you did not recieve the invite and are interested in joining, let me know and I can resend it.

Let me know if you have posted money to paypal or sent a check out for us.

Sorry, I don't think I made it clear. It is to the right of the screen below the yellow chat box. It says, "make a donation."

You know, I think I was viewing just the post by itself and not your whole blog. Does this make sense? Anyway, I see it now!!

Thanks for the donation, Steph.
I am actually glad you mentioned that because I needed to make that more clear. It's easy enough for me to find it because I know where it is! :)
