Many ways to register! Print forms or register from the website (www.celebratefamilyfunrun.com), find them in the Race Rag, or look for the bright green registration forms in local businesses like Mitchell’s Harvest Foods.
In 2013, 135 women and children sought refuge in Ruth’s House and Esther’s House domestic violence shelters. The money donated from our race helped to keep them warm, fed, and safe. I *know* you want to be a part of that for 2014!
All Star Jump did an amazing job with face painting and balloon creations last year — and they’ve been booked again for 2014! This run is truly a family event!

We need your help to let people know about Bright Star’s Global Giving fundraiser to pay for seeds to grow 5 tons of vegetables for the starving Guatemalan families who sent PRM the beautiful handcrafts for the Pay it Forward fundraiser. A leaf fungus has ruined most of the coffee crop, leaving these families with no source of income for the next year.
The other Bright Star Philanthropy Partners for this Crowd Funding project are Seed Programs International, ASO-Ixil ( the Guatemalan non profit that arranged for the handicrafts for your fundraiser), and Alex Larkin, a young missionary. I am hoping you will join this effort by making a donation yourself, and by encouraging others to do so.
This Global Giving effort is being shared on Facebook, and BSPP is asking its partners to help support this project. The Goal is $1000, which will pay for enough seeds to grow 5 tons of vegetables, education for youth and those who have lost the knowledge of how to grow organic vegetables in small plots, fencing for community gardens and watering cans. The campaign is kicked off today.
Please donate and try to get a couple more donors. We want to raise the money by mid February.
The minimum donation is $10, but that $10 will buy seeds to grow 1000 servings of fresh vegetables.
Reoccurring donations (3 month minimum) are being matched 100% by an anonymous donor. I have donated $26 a month for 3 months, so with the match that will be $156. I have arranged for a friend to take the seeds to Guatemala in their luggage, (22 pounds of seeds with Dept of Ag customs paperwork).
Thank you, and blessings for the New Year

We want to take a moment to mourn the death of a sweet local young woman, Brandi Jacobe. We all loved her. Our hearts and prayers go up to our Lord and Saviour for her grieving family. Please remember them in your prayers. She passed away December 15th and is survived by her young son, Colton Kuprienko.
And as 2013 has come to and end, and a new year has come, PRM would like to honor 3 incredible women: Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight. You are our nomination for Women of the Year. You are the example of courage, strength and perseverance. We praise God that you endured and survived, and we thank Him for your witness. Blessings to you dear sisters. May this year bring you peace and joy overflowing!

We just recently had the addition of three little girls to our program who need Christmas presents. The sponsored Christmas presents need to be dropped off by Monday the 16th at our office, so this weekend while you’re doing a little shopping, can you please consider buying something extra for these girls?
Their ages are 9, 8, and 7. You can call us if you need anymore information at 208-448-2800. Thank you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your blessings this Christmas season… We have had ALL our children for our Christmas gift program sponsored, and it’s only December 9th! Your generosity continues to amaze us!
We are currently in need of some essential items for the families that come in… We need:
Size 6 diapers / pull ups
Size Newborn diapers
and full/single size beds.
If you didn’t get a chance to sponsor a child for Christmas, perhaps you’d consider donating something to keep their bottoms clean instead! That’s probably one of the best gifts you can give a baby!
Thank you & God bless.
