Please Help to Bring Paisley Home...

Please join in helping the Hoppes family bring their newest addition, Paisley home. I took the post below directly from their blog 'The Happy Hoppes'. Anyone who would like to help by doing a post, it would be greatly appreciated. A special thank you to Verna the Blogfairy for this wonderful graphic.

doing what we can to bring Paisley home!

Mike and I really enjoyed the iPod fundraiser we had last time, we were able to raise over $400 after expenses (which doesn't sound like a lot but every penny helps). So in light of the Holiday season and the fact that (RED) is a wonderful cause we are having another go! This time...we will sell only 100 tickets for $10 each. We will donate $2 from each ticket to (RED). This iPod Nano is the new generation and is valued at $200!

One lucky runner up will get this beautiful book of portraits. Mei Mei ~aptly named 'little sister'

To buy tickets please click on the Paisley's Hope Chipin in the side bar and pay through paypal. We are going to try to sell 100 tickets this time so your chances are good!!. I will email you with your numbers and draw the winner on December 18th. The iPod will ship directly to the lucky person!

Mike and I are overjoyed to tell you all about Paisley, her special need has some possible long term implications and we will need as much support not only to bring her home, but long after. We are dedicated to fundraising not only to bring our beautiful daughter home, but to raise money in the future for those who were left behind. Please follow us on our journey.

from Shoaey & Dot, a book about adoption

"There's a cry that's the saddest of all.
In fact it's unlike any other.
It comes from a deep, empty place in your heart
That can only be filled by a mother
And after today, I will never again
Hear that sad song coming from you
You're getting adopted, you're getting a mother,
And you're getting a family too!"

Paisley we are coming!

I would like to donate. How do I do that? I do have one request though. Please don't put my name in the drawing. I just received an I Phone for Christmas from my husband and am not in need of an I Pod. I would rather someone who can use it win it.

Michelle said...

I just read the other comments and figured out how to donate. I just did it. I'll also post the graphic in my sidebar. What a cutie she is!

Diana said...

Good morning friend, it's been awhile and as usual you are helping out someone. It's good to have someone like you in blogland.
Have a great day, you deserve no less.

Hi Kim, Thanks for the comment. We are kind of sad this Christmas because Juergens mom is dying. I'm sure you understand. I'm trying to make it great for the kids. They make everything so much nicer! I'm so sorry you need to wait, and can not switch to a SN program. How long until your agency lets you look at the SN kids? I personally think you should be first in line. It makes no sense to me!
