Fundraiser Update!

I've got a bunch of updates on fundraisers we are either just starting or will soon be starting!

1.  Jamberry Nails Online Fundraiser- a friend of Rick's contacted me recently about setting up an online party for us and it began today and ends on February 7th!  20% of all orders before tax will go towards our adoption expenses!
Here's a little bit about the company from their website:
The story of Jamberry Nails begins with three sisters who possess distinct personal tastes, but share a love for style. After an expensive afternoon together at the nail salon, Lyndsey, Christy and Keri vowed to find a simpler, more cost effective way to keep their hands looking polished, while still spending time together. After lots of trial and error, the proprietary nail wraps of Jamberry Nails launched in late 2010. The DIY, at-home application and incredible variety of designs caught on quickly and sales soared. A new era of nail art was born. Gone are the days of nails that chip and flake after only a few days! Gone are the days of the single colored manicure. Gone are the mani/pedis that take all afternoon and most of your cash too! Jamberry nail wraps arm you with style and confidence while demanding very little of your time or money.

2.  Online Auction-  We are in the midst of collecting donations for an online Facebook auction.  Our auction will begin on Sunday, February 15th at 8 a.m. CST and will end on Saturday, February 21st at 8 p.m. CST.   I will be posting the items/services we have been gifted between now and February 14th, but we ask that bidders wait to bid on the items until the auction formally begins on February 15th.  We're getting some really great things so definitely be watching the page and come back to bid Feb. 15th-21st!   Here is the link to our Facebook Auction:
Thank you to all of our family members and friends who have already donated items/services and to those who will be!  We are so thankful for you!

3.  Apparent Project Bracelets- I mentioned these in our last blog post.  I have put in an order for 150 bracelets.  I am waiting to receive them, but when they arrive (hopefully soon) I will be looking to sell them quickly!  They will be $10.  Half of that will go towards our adoption and half will go to helping the people of Haiti (see my last blog post for a lot more info).  I love this fundraiser because it helps two great causes!   Every bracelet will have a different look.

We are waiting on our I-800A approval- hoping for that to arrive in the next 7 to 10 days.  From there, our documents will go on to get certified and authenticated and then off to our agency so they can be sent to China!   We hope to have a name announcement soon...we are close, but there is a reason we are waiting to announce...stay tuned.
