An Amazing Blog Fundraiser!!

This Giveaway is now CLOSED! Thank You for all who participated!!

Derek and I have put together this Blog Fundraiser as a different way to get donations towards our mission trip.  The last trip opened up our hearts as well as so many others that we shared our experience with.  Several of our friends have decided to go with us on  this next trip, several of our friends started sponsoring kids from the care point we are involved with, and so many people are now interested in helping the kids of Grace Baptist Care Point.  We have been asked to share our stories, pictures and videos of our trip and kids to several groups. God has definitely showed us that our hearts are in orphan care and the vulnerable kids of Ethiopia.   

This giveaway will run from TODAY through FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 28th at MIDNIGHT EST! Winners will be drawn at random and announced on Saturday September 29th! I will e-mail you also, so don't worry if you forget to check back!

Here's how this will work. You can do ONE of these things or as many as you'd like! Just keep track of how many entries you get and let me know what you want to put them towards!
