Good Works: The Sparrow Fund

">

There are so many amazing individuals and organizations working to make this world a beautiful, loving place.

One of my new favorites: The Sparrow Fund.

The Sparrow Fund provides encouragement and support to families as they prepare for international adoption. The Fund provides grants to qualified families--grants that can help cover medical, adoption and other expenses. Grants that make for one less orphan and one more beautiful family.

The Fund was started by two very amazing parents--Mark and Kelly Raudenbush. The Raudenbush family includes a beautiful little girl adopted from China. Kelly and Mark returned home from China changed and with a resolve to help parents find those beautiful children who need them.

There is nothing quite as amazing as becoming a parent. The Sparrow Fund makes for more mothers, more fathers and more families.

I love it. Until the end of May, you can shop and help the Sparrow Fund raise money for its grant programs. 33 businesses have committed to donating 10-percent of their total sales through May 31. A full list of businesses is here. There are oodles of fabulous retailers. The best part: guilt free shopping!
