Indie Candy, The Funky Muffin Bakery, and Gluten Free Birmingham would love for you to join us for a gluten free cupcake social for the kids.  It is not often that our gluten free kids get to go places and not have to worry about the food that will be there.  I have a celiac child myself and I know those feelings.  Together we want to celebrate these kids and let them know that they are special!  So, we hope that you will come join the fun tomorrow. 

If you plan to come, please RSVP here so we have enough

The Hope Project

The Hope Project

February 26, 2011


Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church, Birmingham AL

What is The Hope Project?   It is a fundraising event to raise money for adoptions and missions.  It was birthed from the vision of 2 friends of mine.  One who’s heart is for the mission field, and one who feels every child deserves a family.  I love both their hearts and that is why I want to share this with you.  It has become much bigger than anything they had imagined.  It is going to be so fun and hopefully bless these families so they can fulfill their dreams.   If this is successful, they hope for it to become an annual event here in Birmingham to allow for some money for families to adopt a child.

The Hope Project is happening because of a special little 2 year old princess who lost her life in a tragic accident last April, sweet Abigail.  This was my friend, Brandy and her husband, Michael’s little girl.  A little girl who was taken to heaven and from her family much too soon.  She lived a short life here, but has left a lasting impact on those she has left behind.  The 2 who may feel this the most will be the 2 precious children that Brandy and Michael are in the process of adopting.  2 children in an orphanage  across the world without a hope and without a future…until.

Now these children are going to have hope, and a future, in a loving family.  What an exciting thing!  I feel so blessed to know this family and to be able to see the love of God through them and what they are doing.

On to the details…this event is the 26th of Feb.  but there are still a few days left if you are interested in doing any advertising for this event.   They are having a booklet printed in color for advertising.  We would love for you to partake in this if you so desire!

We are also in need of donations.  They still need drinks, cups, plates, meat, etc… If you have something that you would like to donate, please contact Tammy or Brandy.   They can answer any questions you may have.

If you don’t have any way to donate items, or advertise, if you so feel led, they could still use some volunteers.    And, if  you just want to come, we would love for you to come and enjoy the day with the family.

There will be 3 bands playing

HUGE yard sale

Food and snacks

pony rides

face painting

bounce houses


silent auctions

donation giveaways and MORE!

Yard sale starts at 7am and family activities start at 11am

We HOPE to see you there!
