|Ceddi, 5 years old, waiting to come home for the first time.|
First a little background as to why we have decided to help support J and his family with their beautiful goal. As a 3rd generation family business, Mercers knows the importance of a strong family in helping to uplift and support its members. We also know how much J and his wife love their children and each other and know that they are going to offer young Ceddi the love, the support...the family he so needs and deserves.
Also, you can read more about Ceddi's story here, but as a quick synopsis in case you missed the first post...
J and his wife have been working for quite some time on adopting Ceddi from the Philippines and were recently approved to do so. Everything is all ready to go except for the final hurdle. They need to raise $10,000 for the final legal fees and transportation costs. They have been working closely with their church, family, and friends throughout the process and recently told the rest of the Mercer Team about their goal so we've decided to provide whatever support we can and appreciate any you can provide as well.
Now about MixedBags.
MixedBag Designs sole goal is to assist with fundraisers such as this one. They pull together a seasonal selection of bags and other frequently used items with stunning designs, huge practicality, and excellent quality. Their products are also eco-conscious as they are mostly made from recycled plastic. And, even with having 50% of the proceeds going straight to the fundraiser (in this case J and his family), the prices are excellent!
|Go to http://www.mixedbagdesigns.com/spring-2012 to see the current selection!|
They have insulated lunch bags, reusable sandwich bags, totes of various shapes and sizes galore, picnic sets, laptop protective cases, iPhone and iPad protective cases, blank cards, note pads, and much more available.
Please take a look through, share with your friends, and - when you place an order - include our Fundraiser Group #105834 on the Review and Submit section. The bags etc. you order online will be shipped directly to you and directly support a local family looking to share the love.
You can also visit either Mercer showroom to look at samples and catalogs and place your order with a member of the Mercer Team!
P.S. - All orders must be in by June 22nd!
