UPDATE: We recognize that most people do not have large sums of money sitting around to be donated and many have asked if they can donate smaller amounts and still be entered into the giveaway. So, in the final days of our giveaway, we have cleared the board and filled it with smaller amounts. The rules have not changed. You may choose one box or many and you will still be entered into the giveaway according to the dollar amount donated. The giveaway will close on Friday, October 31st at 11:59 pm EST. Winners will be announced on Saturday, November 1st.

It's that time again!

Time to begin raising the funds necessary to complete the second stage of our adoption.

Through the generous donations of family, friends and even strangers, lots of hard work, penny pinching and this year's tax return, we were blessed with the funds necessary to complete the first stage of our adoption, but we are currently still $10,000 short of being fully-funded (this includes USCIS (immigration) fees, additional agency/legal fees, medical exams for each child (required by the US Embassy prior to issuing a visa) and airfare, lodging and food for the return trip).

So. . . here we are, once again, humbly calling upon the generosity, love and support of our family and friends to help us bring our boys home!

From now until the end of August, we will be hosting a Box Fundraiser.

This is how it works:

You simply choose a numbered box (or 2, or 3!) below and agree to donate that amount to our adoption fund. You will then be entered into our giveaway the same number of times as the dollar amount donated (For example, if you choose box 50, you will donate $50 to our adoption fund and your name will be entered 50 times into our giveaway for 50 chances to win one of the awesome grand prizes detailed below). 

You can also receive one free entry into the giveaway EACH DAY that you share our fundraiser! 

There are several ways to donate. You can make a tax-deductible donation to our grant fund through Reece's Rainbow via paypal by visiting our Family Sponsorship Page  (or clicking the button on the left sidebar) or sending a check to:

Reece's Rainbow
PO Box 4024
Gaithersburg, MD 20885
(Be sure to put "Rieben Family" in the Memo on your check)

You can also donate via paypal to our YouCaring account (not tax-deductible, but is immediately available to us to cover expenses prior to finalization).

Once the boxes are chosen, the numbers will be erased from the chart below which will be updated regularly. 

In addition to being entered into our giveaway, we have also randomly selected 10 squares within the grid with hidden prizes. Those prizes include:

 2- $25 Amazon Giftcards

 2- $25 Target Giftcards

 1- $25 Fandango Giftcard

2- $10 iTunes Giftcards

3- Delectable assortments of European chocolates straight from Bulgaria (variety and size of the assortment will vary. . . .but if you uncover one of the hidden chocolate squares prior to Richard's departure on the 21st, he might let you have a say in the matter!)

Once all of the boxes have been chosen we will draw winners for our GRAND PRIZES:

$100 Amazon Giftcard

Winners choice between an iPad Mini 16gb w/WiFi or a Nexus 7

We could not make this journey alone and we thank you for walking this path with us through your continued love, support, encouragement and donations!
