We have 3 fund raisers going on at the moment, and are incredibly grateful for every penny that we raise from them !! If you haven't already, please check them out and see if there's anything that interests you - or if there's anything you might like to share with anyone you know !
Our newest is an amazing fundraising opportunity brought to us by a fellow Reece's Rainbow advocate - she is selling absolutely adorable DotDotSmile dresses, so if you have a little girl in your life who likes to TWIRL, you really so need to check them out !!
You can find them on Facebook HERE.
Please take a look - they already raised over $600 for us just this past weekend !!!
We also still have our t-shirts for sale !! I will be placing an order in a couple of weeks, so you have plenty of time to order - show them to your work or school colleagues - if all of you buy one and wear them on the same day, how fun would that be ??
These shirts are just $20 each - you can pay either via our tax deductible adoption grant at Reece's Rainbow HERE (then e-mail me with your size/color/shipping info at britgirlus @ aol.com )
OR to my Paypal account HERE - be sure to include size/color/shipping info with your payment.
We also still have our puzzle fundraiser going !
We have sold almost half of the pieces already - 217 - thank you !!
Do you think it would be possible to get ALL 500 pieces sold ?
For just $10 you can get your name - or the name of your choice - on a piece of Sealey's puzzle ! Once he is home, this puzzle will be displayed in a double sided frame in Sealey's room - every single day, we will be able to see the names of everyone who helped bring him home - how incredibly cool will that be ??
All you need to do is donate to either our FSP or Paypal (linked above) - and let me know which name to put on the puzzle piece !
Lastly, in the near future, I will be holding a small auction of cross stitched items that I have been working in for the past few weeks - here is a sneak preview !!
Watch this space !!! :)
We have been working hard all winter to gather the appropriate documents needed by both our government and Sealey's government. We are currently waiting for USCIS approval (US immigration) - once we have that, we can submit our paperwork to Sealey's country, and then we will - all being well - be invited to his country to actually meet him !!
After that, we will come home, and wait for them to assign us a court date - at that time, we will go back to his country, and, hopefully, they will approve his adoption. THEN there is a 30 day waiting period, during which we will come home and finish our preparations for his arrival home !
Our third and last trip to his country will be when we spring him from his institute, and do a whole bunch of paperwork - get him a medical and visa - and then, finally, bring him home.
This past weekend we visited Mount Rushmore - we, as usual, took Sealey's photo with us - and I took great pleasure in knowing that the next time we are there, we will have the real Sealey, in the flesh, with us. I just cannot wait to be able to share pictures of THAT day with you !!
If you are unable to donate at this time, no problem - just knowing that you are reading this, and care about Sealey is enough.
Thank you so very much for reading - and feel free to share !
