Giveaway Update!

Huge news, friends! HUGE! The prizes for our giveaway have been donated to us! We do not have to pay anything out of pocket for these items! So all of your donations will go straight to our dossier fees! We really need this fundraiser to go well and this is a huge boost to us!

So keep sharing, tweeting, blogging and donating to get your entries! The "reserve" has been removed! 

Thank you for helping us to bring home our little boy! It means so much to us!

Ok folks, I am really, really excited about this! We are having our first giveaway and I am a little nervous! I have never done a giveaway! If it was a silent auction for my favorite charity *cough*Best Buddies*cough*.....well, I help with that every year and could do it with my eyes closed! So this is a little new for me!

Here's the deal, we still need a lot of money to go get our little man! Like, a LOT. Right now we have a large chunk that we will need to have very soon to get our dossier on it's way across the ocean. We are doing everything in our power to raise this money. We don't like to ask for help. Ever. But this is a little different and a little boy is waiting in an orphanage.....waiting to come home and be loved.....waiting for his family. 

So what better way to help bring him home and give you something in return to show our appreciation?

Here is how works.....

You can earn 3 entries a day just by sharing this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter or your blog. You have to then come back here, comment how you shared and leave a working email that I can contact you at if you win.

Want even more chances to win? No problem! Just donate to our adoption fund via the Paypal button or to make a tax deductible donation, use our FSP account. If you donate through the Paypal button we will double your entries! 

Here is how you can earn more chances:

$ 5 = 1 chance
$10 = 2 chances
$15 = 3 chances
$20 = 4 chances
$25 = 6 chances
$50 = 15 chances
$100 =35 chances

Wanna know what you can get??? It's awesome.....really awesome! I feel like's like Shauna's Favorite Things round here!

Oh, wanna know what we are giving away!

                                      A brand spankin' new iPad Mini! 


Want more??? Ok, ok.....IF we hit $1500 in donations we will add another item! Did you hear that? Another. Item. This one is something that I use every single day and can not live without! I love it more than my luggage.....any Steel Magnolia's fans out there? No? Sorry, I'm easily distracted!

                                   A Keurig Special Edition Brewer!


So get busy! Share away! Donate now! We are running this giveaway until December 12th! Make sure to come back and comment on this blog post so I know how many entries you have! Don't forget to leave your email address or I can't contact you if you win!

Thank you so much! It's really hard to put ourselves out there and ask for help and we want to know how much we appreciate all of your help and support!
