Give a Little and Help A Lot!

14 Aug

Hand in Hand is continuing to accept gifts for the matching grant challenge they gave us.  They will double gifts dollar for dollar if they are given in our name (check or money order written out to Hand in Hand) by August 24th.  This is an awesome opportunity they have given us which will help us so much in bringing home our daughter–wherever in the U.S. she may be.   Thanks to the generosity of some of our friends, Hand in Hand has received $1685 in donations to our matching grant as of August 13, which means they will double that amount dollar for dollar to make it $3,370!  You still have time to make a difference by giving a gift of any amount to our matching grant challenge!  We still lack $3,025 before we meet the matching grant challenge from Hand in Hand…and only 11 days are left in our challenge!(and if we raise more than $3,025, that will be given to our adoption fund as long as it’s in by 8/24) Maybe you’ve read our blog throughout our Russian adoption process or caught up with our story within the last couple of years since we brought home Colin….If just 100 of our blog readers would give $30 each to our matching grant challenge, we’d have raised a total of $10,000 (since Hand in Hand will double donations dollar for dollar)!  That means we could be matched with our little girl and give her a forever home sooner rather than later…$30 is less than some of us spend on coffee or take-out food in a work week….Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to our matching grant challenge so that we can raise the full amount Hand in Hand has awarded us and so we can make Colin a big brother this year!
