More Supporters

When I think about how we've sold 389 t-shirts it's REALLY hard to believe.  When I think about how we've raised almost $10,000 in just 4 short months it's even harder to believe!!  I received a few more pictures that I thought I would post too.

I've got a few events coming up that I'm super excited about.  My sister-in-law, Jessica, is having a jewelry party at my mom's house so I've invited all my Iowa friends to the party.  Even though I'm not able to go, I'm hoping a lot of people show up because Jess has offered to donate half the proceeds from the show to our adoption.

I was also contacted by a lady here in town who has recently moved and has a shed full of really great stuff to sell.  She told me that I can have a yard sale there and keep all the money that I'm able to raise.  The great part is that everything is inside so I don't have to worry about rain, I can go price things and organize things indoors.  And we aren't talking about small things, we're talking about a blowflex, exercise equipment, furniture, tv's, etc!!  She has already sold a couch for $100 and said she'd just give me the money for it since the sold couch is still in the shed. LOL

And just so everyone knows, I'll be doing the HAPPY DANCE when we hit $10,000!!!!  Don't worry, I'm sure it will be fully documented.  ha ha

T-Shirts anyone??

Once again I'd like to recognize our awesome friends, The Paz's.  I can't say enough about this family in the support they have given us!  Their oldest daughter, Jesse, is away at college in Chicago and has been selling t-shirts like crazy for me.  The picture shown here is one of the first orders that I mailed to her - I hope she's majoring in sales at school because she's working it for me! ha ha

Needless to say, I got another order from her for 6 more shirts.  The only problem is that I can only order 24 shirts at a time.  So I'm  putting it out there that if there is anyone who was thinking about getting a shirt NOW is your time! 

I plan to order some extra shirts but am hoping I won't have to order the whole 18 on my own.  The shirts are only $10 each ($12 for a 2XL, $13 for a 3XL, $14 for a 4XL) plus $3 if the shirt needs to be shipped.  They come in multiple colors and are a great quality shirt!!  They also come in  youth size in small, medium and large. (The youth small is approx equivalent to a 5T shirt).

If you are interested you can order by sending me a message on facebook, emailing me at or by making a donation through my paypal acct for the correct amount of the shirt and put the size and color that you want in the comment line.
