Wow, have we received some fabulous donations.
We feel so blessed by the number of people who have reached out to help us “Fill Their Stockings” this Christmas. Truly, we have been just blown away by each and every one of you that has reached out to help us with this effort… thank you all so much.
The best part? We are just days away from kicking off this event – a fundraiser that will make a difference in the lives of some very special children in China this Christmas.
And each of you has an opportunity to help us, help them.
Are you ready?
Here is just a sampling of some of the delicious items that will be featured…
Looks like fun, doesn’t it?
So, here are the details. Starting November 25th and running through December 23rd, each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we (Diana, Lisa, and I) will feature a special product on each of our blogs. That means 3 items each giveaway day, for a total of 9 items every week. The gifts will range from $50-$500 in value – and all of them are fantastic.
For a chance to win the item featured that day, we ask that you consider making a $5 to the organization that we each represent: Lisa for Half The Sky, Diana for Pearl River Outreach and me for An Orphan’s Wish. Your donation will go directly to the charity featured. If you’d like to enter without donating, leave your name, address and email address in a comment on the post of the featured item you’d like to win.
So, you get a chance to win an exciting gift for yourself or someone special on your Christmas list and, at the same time, you are helping to make a difference in the lives of orphans in China, halfway around the world.
Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
But right now, just days before kickoff, we need to spread the word about this special event. The more people who know about it, the more money will be raised for these very special children… and that’s a very good thing! If you’d like to help us in this effort and to keep in the spirit of “giving” this holiday season, read on – there just might be something special in it for you, too!
