Tonight at class is when we reveal the phenomenal impact your giving hearts have had on Dove Harbor.
We couldn’t be more humbled to have walked this faith-path with you.
We put $700 into the hands of 140 people… then gave them 30 days to inspire others to give a little extra for the Women and Children of Dove Harbor.
God – as He always does – has shown up in the big and little details of this entire month.
He brought us 140 people to the “give” class where we brought $700 to give away. 140 x $5/person = $700
He worked within your hearts and minds to come up with inspiring ways to multiply your $5
- Outdoor movie nights with your friends
- Lemonade stands
- Crayola “Hearts for the Harbor”
- Tons of yummy food creations sold
- Sponsored runners
- Corporate sponsorships through your personal connections
Many of you faithfully participated by bringing back your $5 + loose change… Those donations added up to a LOT of blessing for Dove Harbor.
We’re proud of you.
We’re humbled to be part of your circle.
We’re thankful that God chose our class to be part of something so powerfully inspiring for our community.
Stay tuned for the FINAL AMOUNT RAISED to be revealed on our website!!

They’re family, and share a “sisterhood” that we can really relate to.
They live life close together, and have been coming to Zumba with Sister Fitness together for 2 years now!
We love them, their fun energy, and their hearts for the community in which they live.
Marty, Tracey & Diane worked together to raise over $2,100 for the Great Give, and we have been blown away by their tenacity for blessing Dove Harbor!
Check out these fun pictures they collected along their Great Give journey!

I wasn’t there for the kick off but I still wanted to participate! So I baked some cookies and brownies and asked my co-workers in the Madison county courts to support Dove Harbor! It’s been great to see the generosity of so many people!
Thank you so much for giving your time and talents for Dove Harbor!
This fun group – led by Megan from our class – got their competitive spirits out for a good ol’ game of cornhole to raise funds for Dove Harbor! How fun!
July 21st I hosted a cornhole tournament at the pool of my apartment complex. I provided the link to the Sister Fitness website with the Great Give information and my apartment complex shared the information with my community! I raised $95 for Dove Harbor while enjoying the sunshine with friends and playing cornhole! We made every move count!
Megan – we can’t thank you enough for participating in the Great Give with us!
We love the fun energy you always bring to class! You are a gem!
Sweet Joni from our Zumba class came up with this fun idea to multiply her Great Give $5…
I made a display promoting my $5 challenge at work today. I made and sold chocolate flower suckers. They were all wrapped , and I added a ribbon and a thank you note for supporting Dove Harbor. I printed off info about Dove Harbor and made a poster which caused a buzz in the office about the facility. It was wonderful to help raise awareness about Dove Harbor and fun to participate in this Great Give challenge!
Joni – we’re so proud of your giving heart! Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into multiplying your Great Give gift!

“Hearts For The Harbor”
Our family bought $5 worth if crayons and made heart crayons. My son, Luke, wore a heart that said “ask about my heart”.
We passed out crayons to people who donated at the Lapel Village fair as we walked around. Even two carnival workers donated!
Luke raised about $70 last night at the festival and Doug Anderson concert. Our story isn’t over! We’ll be doing this at more places between now and July 30th!
We’re having fun and Luke is learning about giving.
Thanks Karalee & Luke! We’re so proud of your giving hearts! This story is just precious!

You’ve heard me talk about my awesome Zumba class at Madison Park Zumba.
For those that aren’t familiar with Dove Harbor, it is a transitional residential program for women and children in crisis situations. Since it is a program based on Christian values and applies Biblical principles, it is not eligible for Federal funding. They relay totally on donations.
We all received $5 as we left class tonight to use towards our fundraising ideas.
How am I going to use my $5 to raise money? I’m so glad you asked, that is where you come in. I’m looking for sponsors. I’m going to run for dollars baby! I bought myself this shirt, and I’ll wear it every time I run from 7/9 – 7/30.
You can sponsor a set amount or so much a mile. Donations can be made here. Make sure you put my name where they ask for Great Give Story participant. You can also donate via cash or checks. I can pick up!
Every time I run, I’ll take a picture and post it along with the miles and my time. I’ll also put your name on my shirt as a sponsor. My goal is to raise $500!!!
Thank you in advance for your support of me, my Zumba class and Dove Harbor!
Thanks Tari!! You never cease to inspire us! We love you!
