Well, have I got an idea for you!
Leila has introduced us all to Reece's Rainbow, which is an adoption ministry that works to raise money, awareness, and support for children with special needs who are waiting oh-so-patiently for their families to find them.
The children that are featured just break my heart, because they have so much love to give... yet they are sitting in an "orphanage" (better known as institutions) where they don't receive adequate care and not nearly enough hugs and kisses that every child deserves.
One of these sweet kiddos is Andrew, who spends each and every day in a crib!!!! Before you get all emotional, I have some good news - praise the Lord for the Spivey family, that cannot wait to bring him home! What little boy wouldn't want to live with sisters and a brother, with goats to pet, and little chickies and ducklings to play with and so much more!!
However, they need our help! Adoptions are expensive... really expensive. To help defray some of the costs, they are holding an auction right.this.very.second. out on Facebook, where the bidding is getting crazy! ALL of the items were donated, so all of the proceeds go to help bring Andrew home!
How can you help?
There are some great items up for bid, and again, all the money goes to help Andrew come home!
In my not-so-humble opinion (IMNSHO?), one of the best items out there is this here blanket:
|Made by yours truly.|
The current high bid is $75, but it's worth so much more than that, because along with a specialized blanket, you also get lots of prayers for your own special intention as I tie each one of those knots - that is a lot of knots!
So what are you waiting for!? Go bid on the blanket, or any of the other ~150 items!
But, wait, that's not all!
If you call within the next 20 minutes...
Wait, wrong advertisement (I said that with the British pronunciation in my head... go ahead, say it like them - ad-ver-tɪs-ment)...
Are you stuck in a bidding war for a one-of-a-kind blanket made just for you or someone you love?
Well, guess what?
TWO blankets have been donated to be auctioned off, awarded to the two highest bidders! We're talking a lot of knots here, people. Come on, you know you want to bid away!
Why are you still reading this post - why haven't you hopped over to the auction or to Andrew's page to donate directly?
