We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Need Ideas!

I need a brilliant fundraising idea! I am so out of fundraising energy and ideas.  Look how close we are!  Look at the right hand side of our blog (scroll down a bit) and you will see our thermometer.  We are so close, yet I fear this last little bit will be the hardest as everyone who is willing has already helped.  As long as we get our 3rd trip waived, we are only $1000 short! PRAYING PRAYING PRAYING we get the third trip waived, not just for the extra money a third trip will take but I honestly do not know how I will possibly leave our girls again.

So do you have a fundraising idea?  Please share!

We have already held a couple of auctions, sold bracelets, sold yard hearts, sold Mary Kay, had a garage sale, sold a ton on KSL (like craigslist), cut way back on our expenses, gathered spare change, borrowed $5,000 (it is what we expect from the tax credit this coming year), gotten LOTS of donations from Reeces Rainbow and friends (THANK YOU!).  We also held quilting and photography contests that failed miserably (win some, lose some).  What's next?

  1. What if you offered for a $20 donation a picture of your girls with their cute hand prints on it after they get home. Something that says thanks for helping me get my family. I don't know. Just the thought that jumped into my head. Love you. You'll make it!
