Welcome to the Texas Threads Team Fundraising Page!
We are a small community located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. We believe the saying is true, "Everything is bigger in Texas", especially when applied to hearts which support worthy causes. Causes which have the potential to positively transform an oprhaned or abandoned child's life! How? Through the simple act of sponsoring a govt-mandated school uniform at the cost of $20.00 per uniform. Check out the short 90- second video on this page to see what's all in a unifrom.
The Global Orphan Project (GO) has launched a 'GO Threads' challenge to sponsor 15,000 uniforms for children in Haiti and Uganda. Please visit http://GOThreads.org for more detailed information.
We have chosen to participate in this challenge to reflect our community's desire, 'to love our neighbor as ourselves.' We invite you to join the challenge through our team Texas Threads by:
· sponsoring a uniform(s)
· sharing this challenge with your friends, co-workers, and family
· joining the team
Our goal is to sponsor 500 uniforms by December 31st.
Together, we can show these children our hearts are as big as our great state of Texas!
