Giveaway for Alex!

Well friends, it is time for a GIVEAWAY to raise awareness and funds for sweet little Alex! Here are the details....

The prize: A $35 gift certificate for! SEE, I told you that you'd want it! :) 

How to enter: Leave a comment on this post EVERY time you do one of the following things:

- Join/Like Alex's facebook page
- Share Alex's facebook page on your wall
- Link to Alex's Reece's Rainbow site or to this post on your blog
- Tell at least 5 people in person about Alex
- Donate to Alex's fund on the Reece's Rainbow website (ANY amount will help!!!). His funds are currently at $428.50. It will help SO much for him to have more funds. Adoption is EXPENSIVE and I want to bless the family that commits to him! Donations are tax deductible.

That means you can enter to win this gift certificate up to five different times. (If you have already joined/liked his facebook page go ahead and comment on this post already.) 

For example: Jane Doe wants to be entered for this giveaway...she decides to "like" the facebook page. She does that and then also shares about his page on her wall. She will come back to this blog post and leave TWO separate comments telling me what she did to advocate for Alex. Comment one may say: "I liked the fb page", and a SEPARATE comment may say "I shared his page on my wall". 

I know some people may be uncomfortable sharing if they donated or not, but I can't think of any other way to easily track the donations as counting for the giveaway. So, do NOT tell me the amount you donated, it could be $1 or $100, just leave a comment saying "donated". 

The giveaway will be CLOSED on May 5 at 9am EST! Drawing will be soon to follow!

Thank you all for helping this sweet boy find his family! I know of at least one family who is very interested in him. Join me in praying for them and direction as to if they are his family or not!! 

COMMENTS NOW CLOSED. Winner announced SOON!!! Thank you SOOO much for all of your donations and for sharing about Alex!

Advocating for Alex

I have recently become the 555 Warrior for Alex, the little boy in Eastern Europe that I told you about in the previous post. Alex is almost 5 and when he turns 5 he will be transferred to an institution where he will be BEDRIDDEN. I can't even imagine this precious boy, so full of hope and life, confined to a bed. No one deserves that!! Just think, if his family finds him, his life will be full of love and joy, therapies to HELP his mobility instead of hinder it. I pray every day for him. Are YOU his family??

I have started a facebook page for Alex. Please "like" the page and recommend the page to your friends. The more people who see him, the more chances there are that his family will see him! The page is called Adoption and Awareness for Alex. 

In the next few days I hope to have a giveaway on this blog. It should be a great prize that everyone will love, so spread the word about that too!!! Let's find this little boy a home!

About Me

I am a sinner who has been chosen by God and redeemed by the death and resurrection of his son Jesus. I am a full-time wife and mom, though I hope to someday return to my job as an SLP. I love photography, coffee, reading, and adoption. I hate to clean, but sometimes do it anyway!
