March Madness Update

Hello Friends,

  It is quiet in the house this afternoon, a rarity it seems and I am tempted to take a nap (also a rarity), but I didn't want to let too much time go by before I updated you on the March Madness Fundraiser results. We had several people join us as monthly donors and we added $240 extra a month, bringing our monthly donations to $626.33. Having a consistent amount of money is fantastic for any ministry and we so appreciate all you do!!

  I am leaving May 3rd for Romania and will be there for two weeks. This year, I am traveling alone and have a full schedule planned already! I will be working at the two hospitals, of course, holding the babies and doing whatever our employee, Alina lets me do. LOL!  I will be purchasing supplies for the hospitals as well as, connecting with the multiple directors of the foundations we help; finding out what their needs are and purchasing them. A stop to see the women who make the JoyBeadz is also a must!

 I am also hoping to go into one of the city's orphanages with a friend this year to see how the children are living there and to talk with the kids. The new after school daycare project we have been helping with should be close to opening and I have purchased several educational wall clings to decorate the building with. We are very excited about this new project starting and the impact it could have on these tender Roma children being raised in abject poverty.

We still need donations so if you are interested in giving a one time gift of any amount, it will be put to good use! Above all else, please keep us in your prayers specifically for traveling safety and strength for myself and protection and peace at home for my family.

Many Blessings,

Mona

March Madness 5

Good Afternoon!

  Just a gentle reminder that if you wanted to take part in the March Madness Fundraiser today is the last day! We are looking for monthly sponsors as we increase our budget. We have had several jump on board and we are so grateful, but we haven't met our goal yet so if this was something you were thinking about, here's your chance!


We are looking for two groups of monthly givers:

#1 The Sweet Sixteens: This group will make a pledge of $15-$35 a month

#2 The Elite Eight:  This group will make a pledge of $40 or more a month

** and if you want to do smaller amounts that is welcome too

You can put us on your online bill pay, make a bank to bank transfer or set up a recurring payment on PayPal if you don't want to remember writing a check each month:) And if you can't make a monthly contribution, we will be accepting donations through the month of April for my trip in May!

I am putting together my trip this week and in my next email will tell you all the things that are planned for the 2017 Spring Trip! As always, thank you for your interest, support and prayers!

Blessings,

March Madness 2

The Latest at PHFTC


Just a reminder that our March Madness Campaign has started! IF you didn't read the last update, here's a recap! With our fundraising season upon us and with me preparing to leave for Romania in 54 days (but whose counting), we raise the bulk of our money for the purchasing I do while there, now! While I am there, I purchase almost all of our Oradea Hospital supplies, a quarter of our Sibiu Hospital supplies and contact each Foundation Director that we collaborate with and purchase their greatest needs.

However, there are other expenses and purchasing and requests throughout the year and it has become needful to find monthly financial partners.This will allow us to budget better and to serve other foundations more freely.So we have created this March Madness fundraiser around that need!

We are looking for two groups of monthly givers:

#1 The Sweet Sixteens: This group will make a pledge of $15-$35 a month

#2 The Elite Eight:  This group will make a pledge of $40 or more a month

** and if you want to do smaller amounts that is welcome too


Simply shoot me an email or message with your name and which team you are choosing. If you want our bank information for an automatic transfer, we can help with that or we can discuss other modes. I will be updating you all on the STATS every few days both here, the website and Facebook.

And lastly, that brings me to another point! We have our new website published! It is still is being adjusted, but I'm so excited to share it with you! Please check it out and let me know what you think!  http://www.projecthopeforthechildren.org/

March Madness

The Latest at PHFTC


Hello Friends,

    In two short months, I will be back in Romania for my annual oversight trip; this is where I do the bulk of the supply purchasing, visit with the Hospital's doctors and nurses, and reconnect with our small staff and other Foundation Directors. It is so very hard to wait a year to be back where why heart calls home, so you can imagine the anticipation I am living under right now! 

   This is also the busiest time of year for me as we do the bulk of our fundraising prior to the trip! I love sharing God's goodness throughout the year to the Ministry and what He has taught me AND I love seeing your familiar faces! So please pray for my family and me over the next couple of hectic months.

  This season also brings us to one of our favorite fundraisers of the year~ March Madness! This has been a popular fundraiser in the past so I encourage you to commit again or join in this year! For the whole Month of March we are going to be looking for people to pledge to a monthly donation. Having monthly donors who support PHFTC is becoming more important as we grow and makes it so much easier to budget. Will you consider joining us?

#1 The Sweet Sixteens: This group will make a pledge of $15-$35 a month

#2 The Elite Eight:  This group will make a pledge of $40 or more a month

** and if you want to do smaller amounts that is welcome too

2017 Book Fundraiser


   


HI All!

 I have an exciting announcement! Our first Fundraiser for 2017 just started! It is an online book fundraiser hosted by Rebecca from Barefoot Books for children. She is generously donating her entire commission of 30% of the sales to PHFTC!

If you are thinking ahead to birthdays, Easter or any other special time in your family, this is a great way to find unique books and support this Ministry! I leave for my annual trip to Romania so we need at least $10,000 to come in over the next 3 months!

Please take a moment to visit our Facebooksite                                             https://www.facebook.com/events/1095432443899887/ or go directly to the shopping link of our party http://bit.do/projecthope

Your support is such a blessing to us! Please, remember that as PHFTC expands to meet the growing needs of our hospitals in Romania and many foundations we collaborate with, that we need more donations. Consider sharing our ministry with two or three of your friends that you think might be interested in the type of foundation we are and the hurting people we help!

Thank-you and be blessed today!

Mona
