more goods to win!!!! *edit*

I have been so blessed by those wanting to participate in the raffle!! Some really great items have been added.  Read the previous post to see what is already up for grabs. This all benefits the village of Dube Bute, home to my son, Eyasu, for the first two years of his life.  Still home to bio brothers, and extended family.

This beautiful lap blanket was made by my friend Jill.  We met at church this summer.  She came up to me because I was carrying my 147 Million Orphan bag!  She has lived in Africa and has a HUGE heart. She wanted to participate and created this amazing masterpiece in 2 days.  Her dear hubby helped.  What a team. :)  Thank you so much!

Amy from Beautiful Brown Eyed Girl Boutique has graciously donated a $45 gift certificate for you to custom order from her handmade creations.  Aren't they the cutest things??

Savannah at Bringing Hope to Ethiopia has generously donated 4 shirts and a jacket! These are great- we have them.  Savannah is the precious 14 year old daughter of our good friends that traveled with us this fall to Ethiopia.  She will make a HUGE difference there, trust me. :)

Fellow adoptive mom, Ashley, has donated one of the cookbooks she sold to fundraise for their adoption!  Yummy. Thank you Ashley.

Lori and her LoPo partners have donated a cool t-shirt for the work they are doing in Korah along with an awesome Yami cuff. (leather bracelet)

Lyndsay has also donated her great adoption shirt!  They are in the process of bringing home the amazing Miss B!  I met Miss B in ET in June.  She is a gorgeous child that is celebrating her 4th Birthday.  Her last as an orphan.

More.........Julie is donating 2 Ethiopia window decals!! Thank you Julie.

Emily, I donated on the Glimmer page! I loved seeing the pictures of all the things you are raffling off! There are so many beautiful and special items. I love seeing how many other people have donated items to help raise money for Dube Bute. Our time at your house in November was amazing and eye opening for me and Kyle. I have been wearing my Hope hat that I bought from Rainey EVERYWHERE! And people have been very curious and I have been able to tell your story. I am so glad that God brought Ethiopia into our lives through EthiopiaSmile! I will post on Facebook about your fundraising!
Love, Melissa Guerin

P.S. We loved your Christmas card!
