Fundraiser Fun and GIVEAWAY!!!!!
We had our Fall Fundraiser this past Saturday and it was a great success! There was face painting, games, cake walk, bake sale, food and drinks, bounce houses, multiple raffles, t shirt sales and professional local photographer Sharon Brannick offered her skills and shot many photos for families and individuals, and all proceeds went towards our adoption. If you live local you should check out Sharon's work at..... http://brannickphotography.blogspot.com/ She is very talented, takes beautiful photos, is great with kids, and is a sweetheart!
Everyone had a great time, especially the kiddos! A friend told me her son said, "mom, I could live like this everyday." so very cute! It was a perfect picture of how the body of Christ works together.... Friends and family pitching in to help and donate. I am very pleased to say that yesterday I went to the bank and deposited a little over $4,000.00 into our adoption savings account! Thank you Jesus, and thank you to everyone that helped and contributed. Whether you gave a little or a lot, baked yummy goodies for the bake sale, donated candy, donated your time or skills, or helped serve, you played a part in God's plan for bringing this little boy into our lives! You were His hands and feet! We were truly blessed by you! So where does this put us now money wise? We are half way there!!!!! So our next step is selling our awesome t-shirts!
And that brings us to our AWESOME T SHIRT GIVEAWAY!!!!!!! All you have to do to enter is post about our giveaway on your blog or facebook or twitter and leave me a comment letting me know what and where you did, and I will enter your name into the drawing for a t shirt of your choice. If you post on all three places, your name will be entered in 3 times! Our women's t shirt is a chocolate brown women's cut shirt (they are true to size, and do not fit tight) with a red Africa and cream writing. We have women's sizes available in small, medium, large and extra large(we only have 2 extra large left). The men's version is sage green with red Africa and brown writing. We have men's sizes available in medium, large, extra large and 2x. They both say the same thing...front says..."Sometimes I would like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine, and injustice in the world when He could do something about it, but I'm afraid He might ask me the same question. (Anonymous) The back says " I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse the something I can do." (Helen Keller) "What can you do?"
Once again, our hope with these shirts, is to not only raise money for our adoption, but it is to challenge people to think about the something that they can do to help a child in need. If you would like to purchase one of our shirts now, you may do so by donating $25.00 to our chip in account at the top right corner of our blog page. $20.00 is for the cost of the shirt, and $5.00 is for shipping and handling. Be sure to leave a comment through paypal when you donate on what size you will be needing. Otherwise try your hand at the giveaway first and help spread the word about our shirts! Contest ends Tuesday November 9th at 6:00 pm. Hope you win :)
