Featured Auction Contributor: Shannon Bacus, birth doula

Fundraising Thermometer-We are about 75% funded-this is our last quarter!



    Today’s featured contributor to our auction fundraiser is Shannon Bacus with Shannon Bacus Birth Doula Services.  Shannon believes in “healthy, educated, desirable birth.”  Shannon has been a personal friend of mine for several years, and her philosophy on birth (and life) is admirable!  Shannon provides birth doula services in the central IL area.  She is a DONA certified birth doula.  One of the coolest things about Shannon’s services is that there are a ministry.  This means that she doesn’t have a set fee, but trusts that clients will pay her “according to (their) ability.”  What a powerful message this sends!  For our auction, Shannon has donated 3 sets of Scripture cards that she uses with her clients during pregnancy and labor for encouragement and peace.  These cards have many more uses though!  While I am not pregnant, adoption is a pregnancy of sorts and I find these cards to be perfect.  Additionally, as a therapist, I can think of many of my clients who would benefit from these affirmations!  If you have children, these would be perfect for Scripture memory and practice.  Finally, if you are a simply human, you would enjoy the messages and the reminders of love and peace that they bring.  🙂  They are beautifully created with a variety of designs on sturdy card stock and come with a simple, but lovely yellow ribbon.ImageImageImageImage

     Reminder:  The auction will run for 48 hours on Facebook (July 1-3).  A starting bid will be provided, and further bids will simply be made by commenting on the item’s picture-simple!  Items will be shipped by me from Sherman IL.  Payment will go directly to our Lifesong for Orphans matching grant account.  Lifesong does NOT keep a portion of any sales!  100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to the adoption.  We will have a PayPal button specifically for the Lifesong account.  Checks can also be written to Lifesong for Orphans P.O. Box 40 Gridley, IL 61744, with Erickson #4462 in the memo.
