Games + Mercy House

My family loves to have fun together and play games.  We love to play old favorites (Tripoly) and find new ones to play (Bank it!).  We also love to share our blessings to help others.  Earlier this year I signed up as an Independent Consultant with SimplyFun with the idea of having a way to raise money for charities that are dear to our family.

One of these is Mercy House in Kenya.  The Mercy House exists to support and provide alternative options for pregnant girls living in the streets of Kenya through the work of rehema house.  My family decide to support Mercy House after reading Kristen Welch's blog We Are That Family and following her trip to Kenya with Compassion and then seeing how God led her start Mercy House.  We saw God working and wanted to join Him.

So, for the month of November 50% of all proceeds from my SimplyFun website will go to Mercy House.  You can find other ways and learn more of Kristen's story at the Mercy House website.

Now, a little bit about SimplyFun ...

SimplyFun games are award winning!  There are so many to choose from for all ages!  Playing together is so important.  It builds smarter kids and stronger families!  And memories!  My daughters like to play them with their friends.  Games can help break the ice with new friends.  Games can be an event, a family night, a tradition.

Games are great with friends and family at the holidays.  Games make great gifts!  And you can help support Mercy House and the girls living there in Kenya.
