RAFFLE FUNDRAISER FOR OUR ADOPTION!!!!!!

cross


Starting today I am raffling off this beautiful hand crafted cross made by my sweet husband, Aaron. Aaron first started making pine crosses for people as gifts while he was in college. In fact, this was my first gift he gave me while we were dating. Soon after we were married, he had the idea of making one out of some oak wood he found at his grandpa's farm in Oklahoma. The first one turned out so beautiful that we started to go on hunts for this kind of wood, and Aaron would make the crosses, and we gave them away to friends and family members for Christmas and birthdays. We like to find big oak trunks that have been hollowed out by ants living inside the trunks. The hollowed out trunks make for such an original looking rugged cross. Each one has been a one-of-a-kind, all a unique creation.





We are raffling the cross off to raise money for our Ethiopian adoption. Each raffle entry is $5.00 or you can buy 5 raffles for $20.00. The more you donate, the more your name will go in the drawing for the cross :)




We made the decision to adopt a baby boy from Ethiopia back at the beginning of this year. We are so very excited and can't wait to get started. Please invest in our adoption by purchasing 1 or 20 raffle tickets. It would really mean so much to us. We thank you in advance for helping us bring our son home. The raffle will run until Monday May 17th at 7:00 PM central time. Stay tuned to our blog for the big winner announcement!

To enter the raffle, donate below or by using the Chip In widget on my sidebar.
