What Makes Simply Love Fundraising Kit So Unique? 

After answering hundreds of emails on My Crazy Adoption Blog about fundraising for adoption, 5 years ago, I partnered with a local printing business and created the Simply Love Kit to help adoptive families raise their funds. Now, anyone can use the Kit for fundraising needs: adoption, missions, and orphan care projects.

What is Simply Love?


To bless women and orphan’s heart, soul, mind, and strength by partnering with bloggers, adoptive families, and organizations to be a part of the solution of living out-loud James 1:27. Trusting steadily in God, hoping unswervingly and loving extravagantly.

My Biggest Fundraising Failure:

When we adopted our beautiful, Zoie Senait from Ethiopia 6 1/2 years ago, we created a special shirt to raise our adoption costs.  Well, my fundraiser was a total disaster and it failed miserably.  We ended up with hundreds of unsold shirts stacked in our garage.

I felt discouraged, stressed, and uncertain how to raise money for our adoption. I was determined to help other families learn from my mistakes how to FUNdraise successfully!

The past 6 years, I have had the honor of supporting and helping hundreds of families fundraise for their adoptions using our exclusive designs.

In 2011, My Crazy Adoption Blog raised over $60,000 for missions projects and caring for orphans with Simply Love products.  God had a different plan for Simply Love and now it’s my gift to you. I want to help eliminate any additional stress during your adoption process and fundraising projects… all the groundwork has been done for you!

Simply Love & Man Up designs were created by a gifted graphic artist with layers of artwork that are beautifully printed on apparel and a variety of gear.

Fundraising Frequently Asked Questions:

Fundraising is stressful, can you help me with ALL my fundraising needs from A to Z?

  • Yes, once you purchase the Simply Love Kit, you can start fundraising with our Easy Tees’y option in 3 easy steps. We start your design, the same we would any custom order.  We take the art details you have in mind, create a custom design, and email it to you for approval.  Once we have approval, we’re ready to start your website.  We’ll give you a quote on what we’ll charge for the products.  
  • From there, you’ll set the price however you’d like, and you determine how long you’d like to site to run.  We get the website up and running, and all you have to do is direct people to it.  We handle the online payment transactions and sizes so you don’t have to.  Once the site closes down, we’ll print and bag everything individually, which makes getting everything to the right place as easy as possible.  
  • Once it’s all said and done, we just mail you a check for the difference in what we charge and what you sold.  It’s designed to make fundraising as easy as possible for you, and it’s had great results so far. 

Which Simply Love & Man Up Designs are included in the Fundraising Kit?

  • You can print ALL of our 20+ exclusive graphic designs on any of the products available with my printing partners. You pick: country shape, products, ink colors, and designs! Shirt Examples:

There is no middle man- you can pre-sell tees with fundraiser & then buy what you sell. You keep the profits!!
        Once you purchase the Kit ($79) you have unlimited access to ALL our designs!!!
        Let me know if you have any more questions!!
