The Aubrey's haven't complained at all about the cost of this. I've never heard them for a second question any of it. They've just had faith that the Lord will provide.

So I'm pleading with you now, think of something you can give up (Lent starts TOMORROW for those of you who observe it...don't forget...) for a week (or 46 days). Last week we didn't eat out. The money we saved we donated. It wasn't hard and we were blessed by having a couple of extra nights with the entire family around the table instead of in the car. Plus, now I don't have all of the garbage that my kids refuse to pick up rotting away in the back seat. Got WAY more than I gave.
What can you give? Do you get a $4 cup of caffeine in the morning? I'd NEVER ask anyone to go without caffeine, but there are cheaper alternatives (I have a delightful recipe on my blog if you'd like...). What if you gave it up for just five days...that's $20!

Plus, you'll be blessed for it. I know that for sure. We all need more blessings, right? And less trash in the back of our cars? Am I the only one whose kids hide half eaten hamburgers under the seats? I digress.
Are you crafty? Do you work for a company that looks for fantastic causes to help? If so, PLEASE contact me. Any companies that would like to trade goods for ad space are invited as well. This blog is getting a lot of traffic because there are so many people who love and care for the Aubrey's. Lots of people would see any ads that would be placed. If you'd like specific numbers I can let you know. We've done big giveaways on other blogs before and they've really brought in some cash. My email is email@example.com. If you'd like to purchase something specific for the giveaway (Ipads and Canon Rebel cameras always give a nice return) let me know.
