Help Support Orphan Care in DRC

Today is the last day of bidding on an auction to support Our Family in Africa, the non-profit that helped us bring Nicolas home. While OFA does some adoption support, the primary focus of the organization in orphan care in DRC, and all of the funds from the auction are going to support a very impoverished orphanage in war-torn Eastern DRC. We have so much money to raise to provide for the orphanage for the year - this orphanage does not participate in international adoption, so their access to international funding is very limited unless groups like OFA step in.

There are over three hundred items up for grabs, many of which are still going for well below retail, and over seventy that have NO bids. This includes a USC autographed football, a Reggie Wayne autographed football, ipad/kindle/iphone cases, adorable handmade animal hairclips, and much much more. Please take a minute to check out the auction and see if anything you have on your Christmas list is still up for grabs:

2nd Annual OFA Holiday Auction

Bidding ends tonight at 9pm CST (7pm PST), unless an item is getting lots of action, then (like a live auction) the item will remain open until it has not received a bid for three minutes or until 9:30, whichever comes first.

Additionally, two of the auction vendors have offered to donate a percentage of their proceeds from orders that specify "OFA Auction" through the month of November.

Life Verse Design has tons of scripture and inspirational art photograph art, "subway" style prints, stationary, and beautiful Christmas cards. Julie is donating 20% of proceeds from orders that specify "OFA Auction" in the special instructions box, so if you haven't ordered Christmas cards yet or are looking for a nice print for your home or as a gift, order away!

More Love Mama has beautiful African blankets, cute shirts, dashikis, handbags, scarves, and Christmas stockings! She is also donating 20% of her proceeds from orders specifying "OFA Auction" in the instructions. We have one of her cozy blankets with the minky backing and love it
