Oh, BOY, this is BIG! {You'll want in}

*Insert trumpets blaring here*

Call your neighbors.
Gather your children.
Email your hairdresser.
Text your grandma.
Open your window and shout to the world.

It's here.
In my house.

And YOU get the chance to have it at YOUR house.

Introducing my big FUNdraiser!



What? You still can't figure it out?
Come on.

Here, let Lucy show you.

iP*d, baby.
(And that's PAD, not POD)



Exciting, isn't it??

Here's how you can have a chance at it:

*One entry if you put my button on your blog (be sure to tell me!)
*One entry if you link our fundraiser on Facebook (again, let me know)

*One entry for a donation of $25
*Three entries for $50 donation
*SIX entries for $100 donation

*Please use Chipin on side bar

All of your generous donations will go directly to the adoption
expenses of our
new son waiting for us in China.

All entries will go into a "hat" and the big winner will
be announced on Monday, August 9, 2010.


*Details of fundraiser subject to change in order to keep fairness
and fun at a maximum!

Any questions, please email me.

I "chipped in" a couple of days ago. In fact, I was the first one. Please make sure I get my chance at winning. It will be filled!!!!

quilt-n-mama said...

Great to catch up with you yesterday evening. I'll post you button on my blog! We are so excited for you guys and I look forward to seeing you in a few weeks I hope!

connie said...

Oh, Lori, this is BIG! I've added your button to my site. Still gotta figure out the FB link :) Blessings to you!

The Kings said...

Yeah!!! Your button is on my blog. I tried to do that last week without any success. It worked this time.
Hoping and praying for a hugely successful fundraiser for you!!

The Kings said...

I have now linked your blog on Facebook too!!

Tracy said...

I would love to add your button to my blog. However I dont really know how to do that, and the sad fact is that I have the Blogging for Dummies book sitting right in front of me and I still dont get it. UGH!

Sandy said...

WOW! The trumpets ARE blaring!! Just posted your button to my blog and getting ready to do a post on people doing fundraisers to bring their precious children home.

Tracy said...

Lori, Just wanted you to know that I stuck with it and figured out how to add the button to my blog. I will make sure to post something to my blog later about your fundraising efforts and will also be back to donate. Praying that the Lord will provide for all of your financial and spiritual needs. : )

Holly said...

Wow, Lori! How in the world did you get an I-Pad to give away??? I will be praying for you guys as you raise your funds to bring that precious boy home!!

Dawn said...

So very happy you are bringing this son home! I have taken your button for my blog and will do a post and also link to you on facebook... What a blessing your son will be to his family! I'm praying for you all!


Cari said...

WHOO HOO! So exciting! So I have posted the button to my blog and facebook. :)

Elissa said...

Posted a button to my blog only because I love your family and am a big believer in what you are doing! Ok, mostly because I love your family and believe in what you are doing. Ok, at least 50% because of that and only 50% because I want to win the iPad. Ok, 25%.

MomInTheTrench said...

I came here from the Kings and have chipped in! God bless this adoption and your amazing family.

Hezra said...

oooh, how exciting! I will do this and, add your button to my blog, and try to link the facebook thingy... as you know I am not all that tech savy. My hubby took an ip*d with him from work(he is the CIO) to his training class at H*rvard. He was trying to show me how it worked. lol kids were ooohing and ahhhing... and I was stumped. But HE would love to win one. lol I am getting school and errands done, then tonight(when it is quiet) I will clickety click.... Can't WAIT to see you get your boy! So exciting!!!

Lexie said...

Wow!! Incredible! I have been reading your blog since your last adoption! And have been so blessed by your posts and willingness to follow where God leads!

Are you by chance up to taking other donations of stuff to give away?? If so, my sister is very crafty and makes sweet headbands (etsy.com/shop/abeauideal)...she mentioned she would love to donate her stuff to giveaways to help adoptive families bring there kids home (we have one little sister adopted from china, and are fostering a baby girl right now!)

Email (lilgirlgager@gmail.com) me if you are interested in these types of donations and I'll hook you up with my sister!

So excited for your precious family!

(i am awful at keeping up with my blogs...but our family blog is karleighmei.blogspot.com!)

Sherrie said...

Lori! I have been excitedly watching your adoption story unfold, I'm so happy for you When I read the story a week ago, or so, I put your button on my blog (wish I was more interesting and more people followed my blog, for your sake :-), and today put a link on my facebook page, I wasn't thinking to do that! I hope your wait is short and your journey back to China is Amazing!

Lynsay said...

Wowsers. Thank you for clarifying it is an IPAD, no one would want an IPHONE4! Haha, ok, so I would take that too.

Count us in for 5, you'll just have to personally deliver it when you come!

Love and hugs!

Janet and Kevin said...

Yep - I posted to my blog and facebook! Hope I win! Hee, hee! I bet everyone says that!

Our Family said...

Posted your button on my blog and on FB. I'm very excited for your family and can't wait to follow your new journey. Thanks for sharing what you do here - it is an inspiration to many of us.
Praying for you in many ways!!!

Madeleine said...

I will chip in at the end of the week!!

And though it would be fun to win, having never won anything, I think being able to be a part of the big picture is super cool!!!

I will put your button on my blog & try to put it on my facebook.

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lucy's hair!!!!

Jean said...

WooHoo!! I have you on my blog- so throw in another entry for me!!

So Exciting- the adoption and the fact that I am going to win an ipad!! Nothing like thinking positive!!

Karen said...

No blog, no facebook:-( But I did chip-in. Congratulations on your new son. Hmmmm....how can Jean win if I am going to win?:-)

Sally-Girl! said...

How can Jean or Karen win or even be my BFF's if I am going to win????? Chipping in now! Now the only criteria is that you MUST be traveling with me when I get Gracie!!!!

Sally-Girl! said...

Just chipped!!!

You know I really should win since I paid it forward with the Itouch I won and my kids really wanted it and now Robert really wants an IPAD and after you read Gracie's latest blog post he really deserves it...so you know I really should win it...just sayin ya know!!!

Okay, perhaps settle if I know for sure you will travel when I do. January is looking pretty good right now. GZ is much better in January than June! Can't wait to see you there while I am emailing home on my new IPAD!

Kathy said...
