Matching, Gifts, and Giveaways!

For months I prayed over this fundraiser.

Trying to think of ways to make it work.

Ways it can spread like wildfire.

Ways it can bless not only Xander, but each of you who donate.

It’s not perfect, but here are a few things you can look forward to:


You knew I couldn’t host a big fundraiser without giving some stuff away right?

These are HUGE.



I’ll tell you more about them in their own posts so that I keep it all clean and happy.

(Told you they were massive.)

Matching grant:

Yes, yes.


The incredible and generous folks at Barn Light Electric turned me into a puddle of tears in the middle of the grocery store when I read the email from them on my phone that they wanted to match the first $1,000 we raised in Xander’s fund!

I was floored you guys.

Let’s not leave a single cent on the table.

Let’s eat up every penny of Barn Light’s incredible offer.

Don’t think you can afford to give right now?

Would you consider $1?

Did you know that if each person who reads these words gave even ONE DOLLAR we could raise enough money to fully fund his adoption?!

Don’t assume everyone else will do it.

Because they’re probably assuming you’ll do it.

Click HERE to donate.

Holiday Gift Guide:

Have a few things left on your shopping list?

Or, are you like me and haven’t even started?

Either way, hang in there a bit because starting this Saturday, December 3, I will be hosting a Holiday Gift Guide….13 handmade shops around the internets have committed to donating a portion of their sales to Xander’s adoption fund!

Get some peeps crossed off your list without braving the lines at the mall and give a sweet boy on the other side of the world some hope?

I’m not sure it gets much better.

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    I read the beginning of your post about sweet Xander and see that face in your side bar. Oh that face! I donated and felt all gooey inside about another precious being rescued. Then I scroll down and see you are giving away a Kitchen Aid Mixer and Canon DSLR. Both I’ve been wanting for a long time. You just made my day.
