#FrancisPartyof4: Instagram Adoption Auction

Fundraising is terrifying.

The last time I tried to fundraise, God basically confirmed that I should stop doing what I was doing, so I was a little gun-shy when I felt prompted to do a public, completely-at-the-mercy-of-others adoption auction fundraiser.


I’ve been doing hand-lettering (#pencilligraphy) for a number of years now, mostly for fun, and figured… might as well start selling them in hopes to make a few $ for our adoption. (Still no Etsy shop, and probably won’t ever have one, and I’m OK with that.) To make it more appealing to my non-art buying friends, I’ve also asked friends and local businesses in Vancouver, WA to sponsor some goodies.

I have zero marketing experience, a small “following” on Insta, and basically have no clue what I’m doing, so if anyone buys anything it’ll literally be purely be an evidence of God’s grace. This will be a humbling experience regardless of the result.

Anyhow, here are *some* the details to our adoption auction fundraiser!
