Read the awesome story of the Kelley family, friends of Ting Ministries, whose daughters put together an artwork fundraiser to bring home their brother from China! Zhong is the best friend of one of their daughters who was adopted from China last year! This is their third China adoption but first adoption fundraiser – so let’s share the word and some encouragement! Check out some of their artwork below and visit their website to see more!
“Zhong’s three sisters, Grace, Ruthie & Mackenzie, have been working hard on creating a set of Christmas cards and greeting cards in an effort to help bring their new brother home! Our goal is to raise enough money for all of Zhong’s plane tickets home […] then, if the Lord wills, we can also work on paying toward all the other adoption expenses we owe and upcoming travel expenses.”
“All of the watercolors & stamped backgrounds were created by Ruthie, our 13 year old, & Grace our 8 year old who has cerebral palsy (mentioning her CP as I’m super pleased with her artistic efforts despite her challenges with hand coordination) and then Mackenzie, 22, added her hand calligraphy to all the cards […]”
“Envelopes are included. We are taking pre-orders for two weeks before printing so that we can get exactly what you want and not have too many extras of one kind or another. We will work hard to have the cards available to pick up and/or shipped to you by Thanksgiving.”
The Kelley girls are selling Christmas cards, greeting cards, birthday cards, thank yous, get well soon cards and MORE!
Guest Artist: From a Fellow Adoptive Mother, Gallery Artist, and Children’s Book Illustrator
“Cady Driver, a fellow adoptive mom, who is a professional artist in North Carolina, is sharing her prints with me to add to our fundraiser!!! She already sold enough of her beautiful watercolors on antique hymnal prints to fully fund her entire China adoption expenses, so now she wants to bless others! She allowed me to select 5 of her bird hymnal prints and is having her printer ship the prints directly to me at printing cost. Cady is not taking a dime. Cady is a gallery artist and children’s book illustrator and she wants to give God the glory for her talent and bless others with it. When Cady learned about the girls’ card fundraiser, she offered to let us also make available her gorgeous hymnal prints! These can be easily framed in an inexpensive 8×10 frame or matted or floated in a larger frame. These make beautiful gifts!
“The hymnal prints are coming from North Carolina and will take about 1.5 weeks turn around once I tell the printer how many we need…. so I should have those ready for you to pick up first week of Dec. For shipped prints, I would expect them to arrive to you during the second week of December.”
*We are taking preorders now through November 20th, 12pm EST* (after Nov 20th please ask me about remaining stock)
Please fill out the entire order from, or I will not get your order. You will receive an email confirmation if you completed your order. Also please remember to go to the DONATE tab to submit donation & shipping! Thank you!
Suggested Donation Amount:
Cards – $25 for each 20-pack of cards (with envelopes) and “
Hymnal Prints -$25 for each 8×10 hymnal print.
Pickup & Shipping: We will have free local pick up from my front porch (near the Greenfield Walmart). I’m happy to ship any quantity of cards or hymnal prints for the $5 shipping to anywhere in the country.
For example, if you order 100 cards or say 10 of Cady’s hymnal prints…..it’s still only $5 to ship everything! I can take cash, check, or Paypal donations using the link below. We will do our very best to get everything to you as fast as we possibly can! This is our third China adoption BUT our first ever adoption fundraiser so this project will be a huge learning curve!

Our Australian friends sent us this title with a brief explanation: “In Australia, we have a tree called a Scribbly Gum. This came to mind when we saw this painting!”
Answer: Art for Orphans (by orphans!)
Hannah and Ellianna were busy on a sunny afternoon painting! By the end of the day, it was hard to tell which was more paint-covered: the canvas or the girls?!
Thanks to everyone who submitted titles. Keep an eye out for the winner to be announced in the next few days!
