Please donate to 'Gregory's' fund - for extra credit...adopt him!!!!

So 'our' little girl was not available - and that has caused a lot of curiousity & traffic on our blog - I thought I should use that to this little guy's advantage - THIS little boy is still available & my friend is his 5/5/5 Warrior - he is facing institution - likely this year.  We are fully funded for whatever we end up doing next - I know MANY RR blogs include their multiple fundraisers - we thankfully do not need to fundraise at this time -so I hope you will consider donating to Gregory.  The other day we had almost 500 visitors - if each person donated just $5 Gregory could have a fund of $2,500 towards his adoption - I know some of you cannot donate anything, I know some of you can donate more - please pray for & help this little boy if you can.

Check out this serious cuteness......

This handsome little guy is listed on Reece's Rainbow - he lives in the same country as our 'Claire' - his name is 'Gregory' - not really.  I am not sure his real name - Reece's Rainbow is an international photolisting that needs to protect the children listed - their real names are never listed for their own protection.  In any case - we know him as Gregory.

Gregory was born in August 2005 and has a mild heart murmur (no biggie right?) and HIV - but medically healthy. 

Did you know that children born with HIV have a life expectancy of only 6 years LESS than a child without HIV?! Can you believe that- it is TOTALLY true!!  Keep in mind that medical treatment for HIV continues to improve - it is very likely that this small gap will become even smaller as time goes on!

We have a very sweet new friend who has signed on to be Gregory's 'Orphan Warrior' thru Reece's Rainbow - meaning it is her goal to fundraise for him and also advocate for him - to ultimately help him find a home.  She is a great example to us all - even if you cannot adopt at this moment you can still help an orphan!  I know nothing would make her happier than to see him be committed to & then watch his coming home story.

We have been beyond blessed to be fully funded (as always - continue to pray for stability in Claire's country and also for plane tix to not get too crazy expensive!) so when I don't have any news to report I will shamelessly plug other kid's causes. 

I hope you will consider the following options...

1) SHARE Gregory's cuteness with your friends! (there is a 'share' button at the bottom of his profile)

2) Donate to his fund - what if everyone donates $5 - that is doable right??? Can you donate more? Please do! Keep in mind statistically the kids with the largest grants get committed to first - please know you are truly making a difference considering him.

3) Commit to adopt him!! Are you considering adoption? Why not Gregory?!

Want an extra incentive to donate to Mr. Gregory?  If you donate ANY AMOUNT of $5 or more please email me at SanDiegoDealsandSteals 'at' gmail 'dot' com and we will email you a SUPER cute downloadable coloring book drawn by Harry (you may remember we used this as a fundraiser for our adoption before)

Want extra incentive - how about some good old fashioned peer pressure?

Cool people help orphans.  Nerds don't.

Just kidding.

Not really.

Donate to Gregory...because you are cool.

  1. just to clarify in case anyone does inquire with you. Gregory is not in the same country as your lil girl. Your going to (using descretion) a country whose capital starts with K. He is in a country whose capital city starts with an M ;)
