It’s been a while since we’ve shared a fundraising update. Many of you have contributed to our puzzle fundraiser (THANK YOU!!!). If you’ve been reading our blog updates for a while, you have seen the breakdown of our adoption costs with the overall total of over $37,300 that bringing our little one home will cost (Click here for more information on the breakdown of costs if you missed it).
We’ve already personally contributed over $10,000, and through our puzzle fundraiser, we’ve been able to raise $8,530!! We’ve also had additional anonymous donations come in, totaling $2,000. This means that we still have puzzle pieces left, so there are still spots available if you would like to have your name added to the puzzle we will be gifting to our adopted child! Click here for more information about the puzzle and to donate. This also means that we have about $16,770 remaining in costs to save up and fundraise towards. This might seem like a lot, but it is less than half of the total cost, and every bit helps us get closer to bringing our child home!
We are excited to start a new little fundraiser! Many of you know that we have bees, and we just harvested this years’ honey from our hives! This is the most delicious honey our bees have ever made! We are selling 8oz jars of raw, unfiltered, backyard honey for a suggested donation of $10 minimum each, but you can donate however much you’d like for this liquid yumminess. Our stock is limited to only 50 jars, so it’s a first come, first serve situation. We also will not be able to ship, so you must be local, or planning to come visit sometime soon J (sorry, out of town friends). We will be posting via social media, and you can reserve a jar (or however many you’d like) by commenting on the facebook or instagram post, just make sure to include how many you want. If you aren’t a social media person, you can just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know you want one. Since this is a first come, first served situation, we will reserve for the first 50 names, and let everyone know when they are gone. We’ll send you a message back for how to pay (donations can be tax deductible),and how we can get the honey to you.
Thanks friends and family for all your support! We couldn’t do this without all of the amazing people in our lives. Love you guys!
