Our one-day event is over, but we encourage you to continue to use this site to donate and learn more about sponsoring children in Africa. 


Help us support those working to
provide relief in the Horn of Africa.   


Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya are currently in the grips of the worst drought and famine in decades.  Today, more than eleven million people are in need of food assistance, and unfortunately, the situation is only expected to get worse in the coming months.

As Ethiopian adoptive parents, we are desperate to reach out and help those in this region.  These are our children's people, and we owe it to them to do all we can to help.  Please help us by donating today.


  1. DONATE  to one of the organizations (listed on the donate link on the left side bar) and make a tax-deductible donation of any amount.  Before making your donation, please take a moment to pause and consider how much you are truly able to spare today.  You will be donating directly to the organization, and donations can be given in any amount.
  2. EMAIL us at FamiliesforFamineRelief@gmail.com to let us know you've donated.  We would love to know how many donations are generated today!
  3. SHOP  To encourage your donation, we are giving away the items (also listed on the left side bar) to those who donate in amounts over $25 and over $50.  Please include in your email which item you would like to receive as well as proof of your donation (i.e. the emailed confirmation from the organization).  Items are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.  Product giveaways end at 11:59 pm on Thursday, August 11th or as soon as we run out.
