Hope International Fundraising Auction Today!

FunCycled was thrilled to partner with Hope International in October 2014 as a financial advocate.  We were motivated by the call to serve and invest in entrepreneurs in developing nations. Our fundraising provides money for small business loans – a loan as small as $100 can change a family forever. This is called Hope Rising!!  John and I are passionate about empowering the poor to provide for themselves and their families through the life changing power of Christ-centered microfinance.  It’s our heartbeat and we hope to show you enough that your heart will be encouraged to help in this way too.

During 2014-15, on the 31st of those months that have 31 days, FunCycled will auction off a piece of furniture and donate the proceeds to HOPE. Here are the rules:

1. All bidding will take place on the FunCycled blog. You can bid by commenting on this blog post, utilizing the comment box below. Bids placed on Instagram or the FunCycled Facebook page are invalid.
2.The starting bidding price is listed under the picture, and bids must go up in increments of at least one dollar.
3. Bidding will be open for 48 hours. It will open at noon on the 31st, and close at noon two days later. Once bidding has been closed, I will announce the winner and contact them with payment instructions. The winner has 24 hours to respond before the piece is offered to the runner up.
4. The purchaser will be responsible for all shipping fees. (If you live out of state – please check shipping pricing with uship.com before purchasing to ensure you can afford the out of state shipping costs)

You get beautiful furniture, and a family trapped in poverty has a pathway to income and a sustainable future. That sounds like a win to us!t

Please help spread the word by sharing. Thank you for your support!
