Many don't donate because they consider "a little" donation of $5 not being enough to make a difference. ANY donation is not "a little" to us! We have a great debt on adoptions but every penny helps, adds up, & is appreciated! We have al
most 1,300 friends in Long road to China - our adoption story on FB. If ½ of the people donated $5 it would pay for our first agency fees. If ¼ of the 1,300 donated $5, it would almost pay for One of our airline tickets. See how it adds up? What great power we have in all things when we all come together & do "a little"!

As an incentive, I’m adding a drawing for the next 2 weeks.
$5 donation = 3 entry
$10 donation = 8 entries
$20 donation = 20 entries
$25 donation = 25 entries PLUS a beautiful free silver charm bracelet shipped to you 

     (I'll take a pic & post it.)

As the number of donations increase, I will add items to the drawing. The drawing is for a $50 gift certificate toward Origami Owl party http://kristimayo.origamiowl.com/shop/?id=45 Some of the items we make are similar to some of the items on this site. Super cute! If you decide to place an order, Please let me know so my cousin, Lacy Thompson, can get the credit. She has been wonderful to us & donated a ton of very nice items for our yard sales. If your business would like to donate an item to the drawing, please let me know & I will add your button &/or post about you on our blogsot.
