{Day 36}

IT’S MY 23rd BIRTHDAY!!! How did I get to be this “old” 😉  I am going to be totally unashamed about asking for birthday gifts.  From you.  What I want for my birthday other than seeing U2 in concert is to see a spike in the giving.  Do you think we can make it go up??  I have faith it can. 😀  So will you donate at least $23 dollars today?  One dollar for every year I have been given life so that these sweet children can reach their next birthday?  I’ll thank you in advance for the gifts! 🙂

    Happiest of birthdays beautiful lady. I’m sure it will be because you are so willing to bless those who need help. God loves a cheerful giver and you are one 🙂 “Whoever gives to the poor will not want.” (Proverbs 28:27) Enjoy your cake!

    Happy Birthday Elaini!
    How glorifying it is to our Lord to give so selflessly to those who would otherwise go without. May He bless you today, especially, as you have been blessing so many.
    Our Love,
    Mr & Mrs. D

    Happy Birthday, Elaini! What a tickle that you are exactly one week younger than one of our daughters. We have sent your web page to so many friends….we love your inspiration and example! May this year ahead be filled with exceedingly and abundantly more than you could ask or imagine! The Lord bless you! ♥ Monica

    hey elaini, quick question…if I click the “Give Now” button, does the amount I put in there go towards your total or can they not distinguish it from all their donations?

      Warm Blankets is tracking the donations for me. 🙂 As long as you use that page (or any links from my site) to give then they know that it goes towards this project! Thank you friend!
