Lately I’ve been in a “I want to help people” mode. The past few posts here have been about finding ways to help other people and spread other people’s messages.
Think I’m crazy for trying to help other people? Good. I am.
The other day while I was at one of my part-time jobs and I started talking with one of the girls who I work with. Little did I know, she was doing something that I admire a lot. Her husband and her were on a mission to adopt a boy from the Ukraine.
People who do things like this honestly have hearts of gold and I admire them…a lot.
The problem was that they need to raise $30,000 to get him over to the US. That’s quite a bit of money to raise when you think about the average salary of someone in the US.
Who is Yarik?
Before you continue reading, I want you to learn a little bit about Yarik. This was taken from Bring Yarik Home‘s website:
“Yarik is an 8 year old orphan from Ukraine who was fortunate enough to be part of a group of children that came to the United States for a 3 week stay over the holidays. During his stay with a wonderful family (The Melnicks), we were able meet and spend time with him. Over the course of the three week stay, we developed a special place in our hearts for little Yarik. We have decided to move forward with adopting him and bringing him back to the United States to his forever home. The process we are about to embark on will be a very costly and time consuming one. We are asking for the support and prayers of all of our friends and family while we continue this process and eventually bring Yarik home. ”
How I Want to Help
Alright so I want to help Jenn and Paul. I don’t have $30,000 to just give them to adopt, but I do have a specific skill set that I can use. I’m very good at Internet Marketing and creating simple web sites that can be used for small businesses. What better way to help them then by giving away a website in exchange for a donation?
I have a very limited amount of time, but can build 1 website for a small business this month. I charge $500 for websites that I create with 50% paid up-front and 50% upon completion. That is a very good deal for anyone who wants to have a website completed. There may be some extra charges if you want to have a new logo created for your business and have a graphics package, but the average cost is $500. The logo and graphics will bump the price up to $600.
If you know of any businesses that need a new website, I would love to create it for them as long as they are willing to use the money to go towards bringing Yarik home.
