Giving: The Niño Challenge

For those of you who’ve known me for a while, or who follow me regularly, you may remember my sweet friend Amanda and her new dashing hubby, Giezi. If you missed their recent engagement shoot with me, check it out here. They are ADORABLE!

Amanda has been one of my very dearest friends ever since I moved to San Diego. She is an honest woman of faith who has devoted her life to serving those in need…and in doing that, she also met the man of her dreams…Giezi, who happens to be on the exact same path in life! 🙂 I {TRIPLE heart} them! They continuously encourage me to follow what I know is right in my heart…and together they are an amazing example of truly finding out what your gifts are and putting them to use.

So in honor of The Niño’s and all they stand for this holiday season, Mark & I have decided to offer up a challenge:

Rather than give your money to the mall this month, would you please consider helping us in putting it to better use…Help us support The Niño’s in their daily service to those in need! For every dollar you donate to Amanda & Giezi’s efforts, Mark and I will match it…up to $500! And if you feel like donating a million, trillion dollars…? Well, we’ll be stopping by your MANSION in heaven for dinner then. 🙂

Here is a quick video that I asked Amanda & Giezi to do in order for you to be able to get to know them and their mission a bit better. If 1/3 of my Facebook friends would agree to donate even just $1, Amanda’s healthcare insurance could be covered for all of 2012…which would make me EXTREMELY happy knowing we’re helping to keep her healthy and moving forward in her & Giezi’s mission to help the youth of Tijuana.

Please understand that The Niño’s are dear personal friends of Mark & I’s. Your money is completely guaranteed to be put to good use helping give the lost children of Mexico a chance to understand, learn and grow in the knowledge that what they see in front of them, isn’t all this world is about. There is more to their life than sex trafficking, abuse, prostitution, drugs and loss. If you’d like to take a moment to learn more about what Amanda & Giezi’s hearts are all about, please check our their sweet blog.

To be a part of our donation challenge, all you have to do is click on this link to donate. When you’re completing the form, please make mention in the “Notes” field that your money is part of the “Niño Challenge”…or something to that regard, so we know to match your gift. 🙂 Here’s a screen shot of the donation page to give you an idea. SUPER SIMPLE! Your donation is 100% tax deductible and DEEPLY appreciated! We’ll run the challenge for just ONE WEEK…from today until Fri, Dec 16th! Let’s see how much of an impact we can have together!

Ready? Set? GO!!
