Visible Grace Benefit Concert- February 27th

Happy 2010, everyone! If you haven't seen it yet, check out our new and improved website! Take a minute to look around- we're pretty excited that it's up to date!

Thank you to those of you who sent in end-of-the-year donations- we are very thankful for your generosity! Visible Grace is slowly gaining momentum and I am encouraged by the support of our donors. There's a lot going on in VGland...

Susan Kimani is keeping very busy over in Kenya, plowing through the mountain of paperwork, applications, permits and appointments that are required before we can begin the building process. We wish her luck- dealing with the Kenyan government is a study in patience and inefficiency. Susan, we are thankful for you!

Meanwhile, here in the US we are doing everything we can to raise the funds necessary to begin building. Once Susan has conquered the paperwork, we'd like to have money to send her so we can break ground! Our goal for 2010 is to have a home built on our land in Kenya.

You can help us reach our goal!
Here's how you can help:

~Become a monthly donor (email me: info at visiblegrace dot org)- this is the best possible way to help Visible Grace bring in a steady income!

~Use GoodSearch as your search engine (enter 'Visible Grace' as your non profit)- VG gets a penny for every search. This really adds up- think about how many times you use, uh, those other search engines every day.

~Join our group on Facebook and follow our page, and give donations online, and invite your friends to join our cause! Facebook is an incredibly easy and ubiquitous way to spread the word about Visible Grace.

~Buy a Visible Grace t shirt- email me (or leave a comment) for details! (or see this blog post.) Adult t shirts are $20.

~Our SIXTH ANNUAL AUCTION is on the calendar- Saturday, October 23rd! Stay tuned for details.

and finally...

We will be having a benefit concert on February 27th!

This is a great opportunity to spend a few dollars, have a good time, and make a huge difference in the lives of a group of children in Kenya who desperately need advocates. We are on their side- come find out why.

We are looking forward to a wonderful evening full of great music, an update about Visible Grace, and spending time with our friends! Please put this date in your calendar, invite your friends, update your twitter and facebook statuses, tell your mom, ask your wife out on a date, email your boyfriend, carpool with your roommate and buy your tickets now! We'll see you on February 27th!
