UPDATE: HER SURGERY WAS RESCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 16TH AND YOU CAN READ ABOUT IT IN THIS POST, SO PLEASE HELP US PUSH TO GET FUNDED SO WE CAN FOCUS ON HER SURGERY. TRAVEL WILL BE SO CLOSE TO HER RECOVERY THAT WE WILL HAVE VERY LITTLE TIME TO FUNDRAISE AFTER IT!
Well it is time for a GIVEAWAY! I will be spending a lot of time away with my daughter Aleshia while she has open heart surgery. My mother has taken time off to help with the other kids here at home. That means that I will not be here to run auctions and work at fundraising. Our I800 was approved by our officer last week and sent to her supervisor, so things are moving there (would have gone faster if our oldest son hadn't turned 18 while I was in country and required fingerprinting through US Immigration along with a homestudy update). We need to raise the last of the money to get the kids home. Everything is paid except for the money for the last trip. I have a little toward that already too, but its a little harder to save when your little one is having open heart surgery. . . If you would like to get updates as to how her heart surgery is going you can get those on her Facebook Page Here.
You probably remember her One Year Update Post, but here is her side by side picture to remind you who she is:
So time for the HAVE A HEART GIVEAWAY! I want to thank everyone who is helping us work to get them home by donating and shouting while I am away from Facebook and the blog for the heart surgery. We appreciate your heart for all of our kids and couldn't do this without you! We hope that the gifts below will be great "Thank You"s to all of you!
Here is how it will work: (All donation receipts need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can keep track of them by putting them in a folder while I am away for the open heart surgery and all share entries will be kept track of only by commenting on this post. )
For ever $5 donated to our Indiegogo account or our FSP listed on the right sidebar of the blog you will get 1 entry.
For every $10 donated to our FSP listed on the right sidebar of the blog you will get 2 entries.
For every $20 donated to our FSP listed on the right sidebar of the blog you will get 5 entries.
