£70raised of £2,500 target by 4 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,500 to help adopt two precious children from an orphanage in Bulgaria for my friend Laurie Kimrey, mother of 10, including 5 adopted children.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Please sponsor me to run a half marathon and help adopt two children for the Kimrey family in the US.

I came across this remarkable family on a Facebook twin site and was inspired by the compassion they have for vulnerable children and the sacrifices they have made to adopt 5 children, two set of twins and a severely disabled beautiful boy from Bulgaria. In addition to their 5 biological children they are raising money to adopt two more children (12 children in total!) with special needs from an orphanage in Bulgaria, where the children are very neglected. I would like to help them raise money to adopt Addison and Adelaide as this is a big financial journey of faith for them. I have never run a half marathon before and so this is a big mountain for me to conquer! Please give generously and sponsor me to help adopt two children!
