The Nearly-Final Fundraiser

****THE GRAB BAGS HAVE ALL BEEN CLAIMED!****

The Horton's are just waiting for dates to travel to bring "Gary" and "Marnie" home from Eastern Europe!  Look at these faces:


I can't wait to share pictures of them home in Daddy and Mommy's arms!    To finish this up, we are doing a nearly-final fundraiser! The Horton's have some local events planned, so we can't go calling it The Final Fundraiser!   

The children at my church, including my own, of course, worked at creating FIFTY beautifully illustrated grab bags. Each has a slip of paper inside denoting one of three things: "YOU WIN (A GIFT CARD)", "YOU WIN (A CERTAIN PRIZE)" or "TRY AGAIN". 



The Gift Card prizes are:

$25 Jo-Ann Gift Card
$20 Savemart (Lucky, FoodMaxx, Smartfoods) Gift Card
$20 In and Out Gift Card
$10 Pick-a-Child/Family Donation
$5 Starbucks Gift Card
$5 Starbucks Gift Card
$5 Big Lots Gift Card
$5 Del Taco Gift Card
$5 Lowe's Gift Card
$5 Subway Gift Card
$5 Carl's Jr. Gift Card
$5 Target Gift Card
$5 Target Gift Card
$5 Target Gift Card
$5 Walmart Gift Card

In addition to the gift cards, there are gift certificates and other donated prizes, including necklaces, clothes, hats, books, CD's and more.  This is a grab bag event, though, so I'm not giving pictures or listings of these.  Not every bag will have a prize, of course, but most will!

Bags are purchased by donating $10 to the Horton's FSP, choosing the number you want, and leaving a comment here (I won't publish your comment), or message me on Facebook, if we are friends.  Your comment must include the following: 

Your name
Your e-mail address
A copy of your receipt for your donation
The number of the bag you choose

If you do not include your e-mail address in your comment, I will not be able to contact you to get your mailing address!  Please do not forget to send your e-mail address!!

I will update this post with the bag numbers still available as often as possible. If you choose a bag number that has already been chosen, I will let you know and you can re-choose, of course.

Unclaimed prizes will be donated to other events at the donor's discretion. This fundraiser will run until the Horton's are back home from picking up their children or until all bags have been claimed.

Thank you for all the support you have shown my friends through this adoption.  Thank you for your faithful prayers and continue praying, please, as they wrap things up in God's time!
