A Birthday Celebration Like No Other

November 1, 2018 other ways to care for the orphan 0 Comments

It’s time to celebrate!

No Hands But Ours just turned 10 years old. A decade of advice, orphan advocacy, family stories, special needs awareness, charity highlights, adoptee stories, vulnerable connection over struggles, and all kinds of celebration of prayers answered, kids finding families, and adoptive families steadily finding their way.

It’s time to recognize all that God has done. Join in the merrymaking by being the hands (and feet) of God here on earth through our celebratory “Give Ten” challenge.

No need for an ice bucket on this one. You just need a $10 donation, your people, and your hands.

Why hands? Because the work of No Hands But Ours reminds us that the Lord uses our hands to do His work on earth. He invites your family and mine into the redemptive love business of adoption and orphan care.

It’s quite the special invitation and you are cordially invited to participate.

How? It’s so easy!

1. Share a hands up photo of your family on social media.

2. Include how you’re celebrating (which adoption fundraiser, ministry or orphan care organization will receive your $10 donation).

3. Tag No Hands But Ours or use the hashtag #NHBOGive10.

4. Tag a few friends to participate and multiply the impact of the Give Ten Challenge!

When? Now!

Where? Social Media – Facebook and/or Instagram

• To give back
• As a birthday gift to No Hands But Ours
• Because you love to celebrate and rally with the adoption community
• For a chance to win some fun and fabulous goodies

Happy birthday, No Hands But Ours! We are going to celebrate you by paying it forward to adoption ministries, adoption fundraisers and orphan care charities, one $10 donation at a time!


So what’s this giveaway all about?

We asked some very special folks, who make very special things, if they would like to join in on the fun… to maybe help encourage more folks to participate. And they all said yes!

The fun will last the entire month of November with giveaway items added all month long! If you’d like to participate by donating something to add to the fun, contact us here!

So much to celebrate – so much good stuff and so many good people in this sweet community of ours.

May NHBO’s happy birthday song be a flood of donation posts filling up social media with the great love of the adoption community. We are always better together, and what a joy it will be to watch our donations multiply!

Thank you for joining with us in the merrymaking as we celebrate No Hands But Ours in the very best way, by loving others!
