Who Doesn't Love a Good Baby Shower and a Great Cause?

You don't even have to play that really disgusting game of "guess the melted candy bar in the diaper!" Your face just scrunched up in 'yuck' if you know what I am talking about. The link says that I'm uptight, because I don't like the game. I really don't envision that to be true, but I have a dog and now an 11 month old, and I just don't need to sniff poo, even if it is fake. :) (my apologies to anyone who does enjoy this game. If you have a shower that I am attending, and this is on the docket...I will play, I will smile, I will not say bad things about you or the hostess, but I will roll my eyes in the car on the way home.)

So, a fellow-adopting family is being thrown a "virtual baby shower" HERE
. They aren't asking for gifts, just donations to a wonderful, grass roots organization called Families of Vulnerable Children. You can read more about them, HERE. I had posted previously about the 'Ask 5 for 5', and that is still going on (and I found 5 people to donate $5 or more, yippeee!). The cool think about FOVC is that the region they concentrate on is in Southern Ethiopia (where Cupcake is from). It is also where Captain Murdock's 2 Ethiopian sweeties are from. FOVC is a smaller organization, and they are the only organization providing both famine relief (as well as the awesome preventative work that they do). Side note: Captain Murdock's family adopted sweet little Taz about a year ago, and are headed back to Ethiopia in October for court to adopt Taz's brother! I think it would be awesome to send them on their way with the knowledge that they were able to give back to the people of the beautiful region of 2 of their sons. 

If that isn't enough to motivate you...they have prizes available! First prize is an FOVC t-shirt, pictured below. You need to head on over to the Virtual Shower to see the others!

Ahh, you're the best. Thank you so much for linking up! Hoping we can raise lots and lots of dough for FOVC!
