New Fundraiser Coming Soon!

Like most people, we've been busy with the Christmas season upon us. I will be hosting another fundraiser starting January 1st. This one is not so big, but still a nice fundraiser, especially for adoptive, post adoptive, pre-adoptive parents. I have some books and a cd set I am going to be raffling off. The titles of the books are as follows:
  1. Toddler Adoption - The Weaver's Craft by Mary Hopkins-Best
  2. Help for the Hopeless Child - A Guide for Families by Dr. Ronald S. Federici
  3. Born in Our Hearts - Stories of Adoption by Filis Casey and Marisa Catalina Casey
And also a Russian cd language and parenting guide set titled: Adopting from Russia. There are 2 cds, a set of several sheets of paper w/ pictures and words/phrases on them, and a language and parenting guide booklet.

All of these are from my personal collection. I read each book once or twice and listened to the cd maybe once. We adopted a Deaf child so we didn't need to know Russian b/c she didn't know Russian. But I got it to be able to talk with the other children at the orphanage and the caregivers and other people there. I didn't end up learning the language more than to say hello, goodbye, see you later, and thank you. Everything is in great almost new condition. 

I am raffling them off for $1.00 per chance to win one of them. There will be 4 winners in this drawing. It will start on January 1, 2011. It will be to raise funds for an orphan child from Reece's Rainbow. I have not decided which one, as the one I am thinking of doing it for may get adopted (or get a committed family) before then. So I will wait and see which one will get the funds when the time draws near. 

Check back on 1/1/11 for more details!
