We divvy up who cooks what on Saturday and then we set up the serving line on Sundays.
Honestly, I think we would keep going until the girls leave in June if we were able, but our church has several mission groups heading out this summer, so we have to close our shop the next week or two and hand it over to the Haiti fund-raising team.

She also has two other fundraisers going. One is these darling bracelets hand-made in the Philippines. They cost $2 with $1 going to support the families making them and the other $1 supporting Alyssa. If you interested in buying any, I will pay the postage - it will not come from Alyssa's profits. (You can email firstname.lastname@example.org)
Here is her new fundraiser - these t-shirts. They are available in youth M, L, XL and adult S, M, L and XL. They are $15 (with $5 going to her as profit in the beginning, but the profit margin increases the more we sell!) I am going to offer the same deal to any blog readers that would like one - I will personally pay the shipping.
I have to admit, I was less than super enthused last summer when Alyssa asked to go on the first mission trip and I found out the cost was $5,000. I told her it would be difficult to do fund-raising on top of our own adoptions. This year has been no different - other than this trip is $6,000 (three airline tickets!). She has worked very hard and she has currently raised half the money needed.
Thank you for any support. Email me at email@example.com if you would like to order the above items.
