a better place to play

i have this big idea. but as it's developed, it's bigger than mine. i've come to realize that it was God that placed this idea, this dream, this vision, in my heart.

it started with a simple wish, and a solution, then i wrote it down, and before i knew it there were volunteers, a name and logo, a website, fundraisers, IRS approval, bankers, real estate, community support.

Gorbella's is a Nonprofit Organization raising money to build a better place to play here in the DFW Metroplex.

when the baby is too young to play on the fast food playground. when the floors at said playground are too grimey for your sweet toddler. when your preschooler is bored with that same playground. when it's too hot to play outside. when there's nothing to do on a rainy day. when you don't want to feed your children french fries and mystery nuggets. when you want to chat with another parent over a cup of coffee while your kids play nearby. for those every day moments in a family's life, there will be Gorbella's. stop in. stay and play. grab a healthy snack in the cafe. and play some more.  

we can't do it without your support. and there are several ways that you can help

Books & Blankies, our next fundraiser, is next month. we need advertising sponsors, snack sponsors, and a venue sponsor. we love our sponsors and do everything we can to help promote your business as you support Gorbella's: advertise you on promo materials, online and print, Twitter and Facebook, and event advertising.

like i said, there are several ways that you can help. if nothing at all, please pray with me that this dream will come to fruition in God's perfect timing. thank you for helping Gorbella's build a better place to play!

i love Gorbella's, and this post is linked up at Things I Love Thursday.
