Auctions for a cause

This is worth your time to check out.  I copied from a friends blog since she had already done the work.  Thanks Holly!!  You can get a start on your Christmas shopping and help out a very worthy cause at the same time.  And on top of that you will be buying things made by 'real' people instead of from the big box store up the street.

Sarah's Covenant Homes, fondly referred to as SCH, is a home for children with varying degrees of special needs. Some range to mild while others are severe and almost all of the children have medical issues that their tiny bodies fight against on a daily basis. Over 100 precious lives are meticulously and carefully doted over by a team of dedicated and devoted "ayah"'s and various mission teams who come to volunteer. Caring and supporting 100 innocent souls can be a daunting task, yet Sarah Rebbavarapu (founder and director) does so with the love and attention that she shows her own three young daughters. Sarah is originally from Chinook, Montana and had a vision from the Lord to open this home over 11 years ago.

So, how does SCH support 100 children, you got it....DONATIONS! All of which is spent to care and provide for the children's medical & physical needs. Running a home with that many children can be tricky when money from the sponsors can be tight. Here steps in "Auctions for a Cause"!
Auctions for a Cause is just what it says, an auction created to help raise funds for a cause, in this case Sarah's Covenant Homes. Various individuals have donated handcraft items as well as the few bought, to donate for the auction to be held on Monday, October 17th. thru October 24th. Why do you want to participate? Here are a few reasons...

And if the items are not motivation enough for you to bid, then how about these sweet ones...

As difficult as these images can be, this is the harsh reality of the children's lives when they first came to Sarah's Covenant Homes. If not for the the home willing to take these dear ones in, the majority of the children would of died alone, with no one to hold their hand, no one to caress their cheek, no one to show them the love of Jesus.

So, you see the importance of this auction!
The money made from the auction will literally be saving lives!!!
Don't you want to be a part of that?

It kind of gives new meaning to James 1:27, doesn't it?

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
James 1:27
All For Him!
