We are going to be doing several fundraisers for the next couple months (or however long it takes us to raise the money needed to travel) as we've said before we had all our upfront fees (for our homestudy and our commitment fee for RR). We also had another $2,000 raised. Thankfully there is $840 in her fund waiting for our family when we go to travel - the problem - we kinda need like another $10,000 - $12,000 (WHAT?!) I know..... travel and in country fees are where a huge amount of the cost lies. We honestly thought that we would not be traveling quite so soon.
Our goal is to work extra, put on a couple fundraisers, and pray for a few donations through Reeces Rainbow (tax deductible by the way) - our hope is that we can bring her home without any debt....we'll see...
Since we should be able to submit our dossier in February there is very likely that we will travel this Spring!
That is A LOT of money to raise by Spring.
Here is our Ebay Store - we will have constant sales up there - I hope you will check it out.
Also - if you are local we are helping my aunt with her moving sale on January 8, 2011
We are combining to make it a HUGE 'adoption fund' multi-family garage sale! If you have stuff you were planning on donating to a worthy cause please email me at katehamernik 'at' sbcglobal 'dot' net and we would love to come and pick it up - items that do not sell will be donated to homeless families in the VUSD - another very worthy cause.
If you are interested in coming to our garage sale the address is 925 Lilac Ct San Marcos CA 92069
We will start at 8am and our stuff is going CHEAP!
