We received an exciting email today!!! It said:
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Bischoff!
We have received your online hosting application and the payment and we are happy to inform you that your family is approved to host with New Horizons for Children. Your children have now been placed in the “Hosted” section of the photolisting.
Woohoo!!! That means we’re official! K & D are coming to stay with US!!!!! As soon as we get back from Colorado (going for my college graduation next week!!), we’ll start working on their room and getting all of those things together. We’ll also need to do a safety inspection before they get here, too.
We’re also launching our first fundraiser! We’ve got these awesome Latvian t-shirts that we’re selling to help raise money for K & D’s fees.
These shirts are so cool and unique! I mean, who has a t-shirt with the shape of Latvia on the front?!
Remember, this is for fundraising, so we are asking $20 for a shirt, or two for $35, plus shipping (which should be about $5 per order, unless you have a huge order, then we’ll talk about it).
We have a few varieties of these. The women’s shirts can be in normal cut, or in a junior’s cut (which is running about 1 size smaller than expected). The men’s shirts can be with or without the back graphic. If you would like to purchase one (or five ), the following is the info we need:
Shirt style: Men or Women (If men, include back graphic?)
Size: S, M, L, XL (If women’s, normal cut or junior’s cut?)
Quantity of each
Mailing address (for USPS)
You can pay securely via PayPal (using the button shown here)
Or you can mail us a check. (Please remember the shipping charge!) Please either email me at
with the above info, or if you pay via PayPal, you can include it in the “Special Instructions” spot provided when you check out. Either way, we’ll send out your order as soon as we get the shirts in. After you’ve completed your order, feel free email this to your friends and tell them they need a shirt, too!
Thank you so much for your interest in what we’re doing for these kids! We still have about $4500 to raise in just a few weeks, so feel free to spread the word about our adventure!!!
