NEW Prizes!!!

The current fundraiser has ended.  Although Hannah’s account did not reach $1,000 I’m starting a new fundraiser with different prizes with hopes of raising additional funds.

Prizes are:

3 scarfs-although these do not have tags they are all brand new (purple scarf is from Ralph Lauren/blue scarf has mits for your hands)

2 purses-both of these purses are Vera Bradley

1 large bag-from Neiman Marcus tag still attached

1 sized 12 month old Boy Christmas outfit comes with hat

Knitted baby blue sweater with matching booties there is no size on these but I would guess 3-6 months old.  For a smaller sized baby I would think it would fit a 6 month old and a larger baby would probably fit a 3 month old.

Also have gift cards Panera $50, McDonalds $25, Dunkin Donuts $25, and Target $25

This fundraiser will be run differently.  When people donate you can email me the prize you would like to win.  If there are multiple names that want the same prize a winner will be randomly selected.

 Thank you to anyone will contributes!!! It is greatly appreciated.  The email address is bringinghannahhome@gmail.com

Since July Hannah’s FSP has raised $900!!! I only received one email from someone that donated an extremely generous amount of money. If you donated to Hannah’s account please let me know before the giveaway is done.

The current giveaway will be done once Hannah’s account reaches $1,000.  Only $58 left to go!!! 

Thank to everyone who has donated!!!!

Please continue to donate and increase the amount in Hannah’s account to get her home!!!

Fundraisers!!!

Many fundraisers will need to be held to gather the funds to bring Hannah home. I have heard/read on other blogs the “naysayers” who discourage adoptions if you can’t afford it. However paying $30,000 is a small price to pay to bring a child into a home, provide her with a loving family, and access to medical care that could be the difference between life and death (although in Hannah’s case medical care in her country would be adequate).
