ETHIOPIA CALENDAR FUNDRAISER...you can sell them too!

Need a gift for the person that has everything...or would you just like to learn about a beautiful country while enjoying some fantastic photography?

How about picking up a unique 2012 wall calendar featuring fantastic photography and plenty of interesting facts and information about one of the countries our family has come to love, Ethiopia. (The calendars measure 9.5" x 12.25")

Thanks to the success we had during our Superman was Adopted fundraiser we decided to take on another one. Each month of our 13 month calendar includes not only a snapshot taken by one of two very talented photographers (Nina from Nina Mullins Photography, and Jessie from Speckled Bird Art) while in Ethiopia, but it also has either a tidbit of info about the country or an explanation of the one of the Ethiopian holidays for that month.

Take a sneak peak…


If you’re anything like Sara and I, you want to make sure to embrace the heritage and culture from the countries your children were born. For us that means integrating Russian, Ethiopian, and Korean customs into our daily lives. Sometimes it can be tough to keep track of the holidays and anniversaries celebrated in the other countries. This calendar will help you not overlook or forget about those important days in Ethiopia.

Not unlike our last fundraiser, we will accumulate all of the orders and make one large order from the printer. Thus, our sale will begin today and run through November 1. That will give us ample time to accumulate orders and get the calendars printed and sent out prior to the holidays.

You can either choose to pay via the PayPal button on our site or if you would rather, you can send us a check in the mail.  If you would rather pay by check, just email me with your order and we will go from there.

If you are an adoptive family interested in fundraising (or know of one), feel free to contact us.  We are more than happy to share this fundraiser with families like ours by allowing those folks to sell these calendars and raise money for their own cause. If you’re anything like us, any dollar that you can earn through a fundraiser takes a little bit of the stress away that comes with the financial aspect of adoption.

Plus, we think these calendars are fantastic, so the more families that can enjoy them, the better!

Feel free to email me at abrotherforlleyton@yahoo.com if you're interested.

Thank you so much for you continued support. 

Matt and Sara

  1. These are amazing. What a clever idea! And, I love your superman tees - do you still have any of those left?

    Just gave you all a little shout out on my personal blog - thought I'd let you know!
