Adoption Awareness Giveaway Details

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about all of the AMAZING items that we will be giving away in honor of Adoption Awareness Month! And because I want all of you to be just as excited about adoption advocacy, I am going to give you a sneak peek at some of the goodies that will be offered throughout the month!

2 Designer Flannel Pillowcases from Adopting Nations



3 8x8 Prints from Sanctus Simplicitus



2 Fabulous Coin Purses from 3 Seams



Braided fabric bracelet (with a hand-stamped tag) from The Adopt Shoppe



2 $25 Target Gift cards

$100 Amazon Gift card



And the crowning glory of our giveaway. . . . . . a brand, spankin' new Kindle Fire!

You can read more about all of the AWESOME features of the Kindle Fire here.


So, would you like to know how you can get your name entered to win one of these amazing prizes!?! It's simple!

1. Donate to a waiting child's grant fund

2. Contribute to an adopting family's fundraiser or grant fund

3. Donate to an "orphan care" organization (this is not limited to monetary donations; many organizations have need of "goods and services" as well)

4. SHARE, SHARE, SHARE (aka ADVOCATE)! Every time you share the profile of a waiting child, adopting family or organization, your name will be entered into the giveaway.

Each Friday throughout the month of November (11th, 18th, 25th) we will giveaway several prizes. On November 30th, we will draw winners for the $100 Amazon Gift card and the Kindle Fire.

Please be sure to leave a comment/message on my blog or on Facebook or send me an email letting me know EVERY TIME that you donate, contribute or share.

And now. . . . let the advocacy begin!

Thank you for doing this! You have a beautiful family! I've committed to sharing about one adoptive family and also one child still waiting for their family each day this month on my blog. I wasn't sure if I had to leave a comment for every entry or not. I also donated yesterday to Bradley, Bryant & Brooks on RR.

Okay, I see where we are supposed to comment EVERY time...I have all the posts for the month typed up and auto scheduled already...it would be 2 per day (one for a family, one for a waiting child) for all 30 days. I think you'll get tired of seeing my comments if I posted every time :)

Val, I think this is a great idea. We are so close to visit number one. This seems like forever. We will keep you posted!

Heather said...

What a heart you have. A great idea, indeed! I am advocating and doing a little giveaway for the Grover Family who lives here in Utah. They are adopting a little boy from China via RR. I've posted on my blog twice and on facebook, too. I will continue to do so until their FSP reaches $3,000.

I did an advocacy post today of kids who have expressed a desire to have a family. I will continue advocating, so you will be tired of my comments soon as well.

I chipped in for Morgan last week (or the week before- I can never remember)... and I looked at so many children on Reece's Rainbow. There are so many waiting children. I just wish I could help them all!!
