Just Love Coffee

"Roasting Fair Trade Specialty coffees, Just Love Coffee Roasters uses proceeds to help an Ethiopian orphanage and families adopting not just from Ethiopia, but from anywhere in the world."

We stumbled into this family, the Webbs, who have adopted from Ethiopia and now help other adopting families to raise funds through the sale of specialty coffees. Check out their site with the link above and our storefront with the link below:

We would love to have your help. Please consider forwarding to your friends, family, and random coffee drinkers. It's an easy way to become involved in orphan care! Thank you.

Daniel & Sarah Dubois, friends from Jenny's home church, are also adopting from Ethiopia. You can check out their story at They are further into the process than we are and have completed their fund raising.

We were BLOWN AWAY when they called to offer us the proceeds from their Tshirt fundraiser already in progress! Over time, their site has cultivated a following and they are willing to donate the profits over the next several months to the Dixon adoption fund. We are so grateful to the Dubois fam!

SO, we are sending all of our friends to their site to check out the merchandise (hoodies, long sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, T's, onesies, and stationery). They have our story and pictures posted as well. Please consider purchasing something and/or passing the links on to your email list.

Raising Funds through ETSY

Over the last several months, Jenny has developed a great way of fundraising for our adoption. She has set up an online shoppe named Easy as 127 (after James 1:27) to sell custom photo cards. These are great-looking and affordable cards for many occasions. Customers send personal photos to her and she supplies a jpeg that is print-ready. All the proceeds go to our adoption fund!

PLEASE consider purchasing your family's Christmas cards, birthday and other party invites, and more through her site.
ALSO, please help us network with more people by sending the link for her shoppe to people on your email list. With your recommendation, we could reach many people and raise much needed funds!

THANK YOU for your help and support in the coming months!
