The Giving Tree: A New Way to Support Our Adoption

on November 6, 2014

I’m exImagecited to be using this post today to kick off our final planned fundraiser that we are doing to raise money to help cover adoption costs.  Here’s how this works:

This little love tree holds 150 handmade ornaments, each numbered 1 – 150. Donations can be made for the amount that corresponds with an ornament number (#1 = $1.00, #50 = $50.00, #122 = $122.00, etc.).  As a thank you for your support, you will receive the numbered ornament that corresponds with your donation.  If all ornaments are purchased, we will raise over $10,000 for the Harris family’s adoption!  This will cover most expenses already incurred, including agency, retainer, and advertising fees.

All ornaments are a team effort created either by Lisa, Doug, or several generous volunteer helpers who donated their time towards the creation of these lovely, handmade treasures.

But that’s not all!  Each purchase will enter you into a raffle for a $100 Amazon gift card.  The higher the number that you purchase, the better your chances are of winning!  Purchasing #1 will earn you one entry, purchasing #50 will earn you 50 entries, and so on.  The raffle drawing will take place on December 15, 2014, so you must purchase an ornament by the end of the day on December 14, 2014, to be considered.  Even if you don’t make the deadline, you can still donate for ornaments.

Rather make a tax-deductible donation?  Visit their AdoptTogether site to make a tax-deductible donation.  These donations will not receive an ornament and raffle entries, so why not do both?!?

Efforts will be made to distribute ornaments in a timely fashion for Christmas.  Locally purchased ornaments will be hand-delivered.  All other ornaments will be shipped in the most cost-effective manner possible.

One more thing…Please share this with anyone that you think might be interested.  Wouldn’t it be great to have ALL 150 ornaments covered by the end of the fundraiser?!?

Note: Ornament based on a design by Soles.
