The ladies in leadership at Grace Chapel had the privilege to hear Chai Ling share her testimony and describe the work that All Girls Allowed is doing at a leaders’ event held in January 2012. We could not help but to be moved by the atrocities happening in China and felt God stirring in our hearts to do something.
A few of my Joy Bible Study Leader friends and I decided that we wanted to raise funds for All Girls Allowed but in a less traditional, more fun and creative way. I have been a Pampered Chef consultant for 6 years and suggested that we hold a Fundraiser Party with the dual benefit of fellowshipping together outside of church. We invited all the Joy Bible Study Leaders to come and to share this opportunity with their friends.
On Monday, March 12th, one of the leaders opened up her home and hosted this wonderful Pampered Chef Fundraiser. Approximately 20 momen came. We laughed, we learned, and we had fun making and eating a Strawberry Cream Trifle!
In addition to the 15% of Guest Sales that Pampered Chef gives to the charity chosen, I decided to contribute 10% of my commission. In total, we had over 30 orders and we raised $647.06! We were thrilled to be able to support TWO Baby Shower Gifts for one year, and Four Months of Primary School for an Abandoned Girl. May All Girls Allowed continue to be God’s hands and feet and may God be glorified in our efforts.
