Puzzle Piece Fundraiser/Big Giveaway

We are trying to raise money to reach our goal of $5,000 to be able to submit our dossier and are excited to announce we are doing a Puzzle Piece Fundraiser/Big Giveaway  (see below for pictures of all the prizes posted so far & many more to still come!!!!)

Here's how it works:  We have bought a jig saw puzzle that we will be putting together as people buy puzzle pieces.  Once completed it will go in our baby's nursery :)

You can buy a piece of our puzzle/entry for $5.00 and can buy as many pieces as you would like.  Just click on the "buy here" puzzle icon in the top left corner of this blog to pay via debit/credit or paypal.
There are 1000 pieces to this puzzle so if we can get 1000 people to buy just one piece we will be at our $5000 goal. 

...The best part for YOU is this fundraiser also comes with prizes for those who buy puzzle pieces!
For each piece you buy, your name will be put into a drawing to win prizes that have all been donated by other families.  
 I will be posting pictures of these prizes soon and will have multiple winners so the chances of winning will be good for all!

...The best part for US will be that we get to put your name on the back of each piece you buy so when it is all said and done we can see everyone that helped bring our little boy or girl home and one day he or she will get to see all of your names as well....I love that more than anything!!!

If you have anything you would like to donate to our giveaway we would be MORE than happy to accept it, & it can be anything, adoption related or not.    

FREE entry:  if you Facebook about this giveaway or post it to your blog, you can also get 1 entry, just make sure you comment below and let me know.
