And so the T-shirt fundraiser has come to an end. We raised $377! Thank you to all the people who bought shirts, we truly appreciate it!

We are unsure at the moment if we will re-launch the shirt again at a later date. Once we get the shirts in then we will see and decide to re-launch or not.

As I’ve said before, we have a few other fundraising ideas in mind. One is a puzzle fundraiser. How that works is you take a puzzle(in our case a 1,000 piece) and basically sell each piece of the puzzle for a certain amount and each person that buys a puzzle piece will get to write their names or message(depending how many bought) on the backs of the puzzle piece. Once all pieces have been bought, we will put the puzzle together and put it in between two glass panels to hang in the baby’s room so they can see all who supported their adoption! This is the puzzle we choose:

I fell in love with it because I want my child to know that they can do anything that they set their mind to if they dream it. I don’t want anything to hold them back in their lives.

Another idea for a fundraiser is a Cake Bingo. When we were on a Relay for Life team some years ago we did quite a few of these and they were really fun to do. We plan on doing a 50/50 raffle and also an Auction too during the bingo. Only thing about the auction is I’m kind of at a loss as to who to ask about donations of items for it. Any advice?? I know one item for sure my husband is going to build…..but that’s about it. If you have any suggestions please please get in touch with me. If you would like to help with the bingo once we have everything set also let me know, we figure we would need around 14 people to make the bingo run smoothly. But hey the more the merrier!

I think that’s all I’ve got to say for today, haha. I don’t want to just talk about adoption so suggest some topics for me blog about! It will help me keep my mind from wandering off. I hope you all have a great day and God Bless!
