  • You must comment on this blog post with what you have done to enter, your email address and whether you'd like your comment to be visible to others or not. If you have shared on facebook, please leave your facebook name. If you have shared on your blog, please leave a link to the post. i.e., "I donated $50, shared on Facebook (Bon Ding) and on my blog (adventuresofbonding.blogspot.com)". I will then maintain a spreadsheet with this information and your entry numbers. If you would like your entry numbers after you enter, email me at jessicacgorrell@gmail.com 
  • YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO WIN MORE THAN ONE PRIZE. This means that if you donate $5000 and have 2000 entries, you might win them all. 
  • The contest will end at midnight on 6/8/12. Random.org will be used to pick the winners from all the entries.  I will then announce all the winners. The first 5 winners will be contacted via email and given choice, in order winner, of the prize they want from the prizes remaining. If you do not contact me within 24 hours of email, you will be assigned a prize based on the order they are listed in the prizes listing. For example, if Bon is the 1st winner, he can select any prize. If he picks the Coach bag, and Jan is 2nd, she can pick from any prize remaining except the Coach bag. If Bon does not respond within 24 hours, he would automatically win the iPad. The remaining 45 prizes will be given in order of winner based on random.org and remaining prizes listing. 
  • If you do not reply to me within 72 hours to tell me where to ship your prize, I will assume that you choose not to accept your prize and the prize will be sold to fund Sweet Girl's adoption fund. 
  • If you donate $50 or more, you will receive a free t-shirt. These shirts are shown above. Sizes are YOUTH S,M,L and ADULT S,M,L,XL. There are a limited number of each size available and I will do my best to accommodate your size, but sizes are on a first come first served basis. There are only 50 shirts available. Shirts will ship approx 6/15/12.
  • If we do not raise enough money to cover the cost of the prizes we are buying out of pocket, we reserve the right to remove prizes from the prize list. (we will purchase prizes 1-6). 
  • To donate to our chip in, click the red chip in box on the right sidebar and login using your Paypal. These donations are not tax-deductible for you, but are most easily accessed by us for our adoption expenses. To donate to our Reece's Rainbow Family Fund, click the Reece's Rainbow donate button on the right sidebar to be redirected to Paypal. These donations are tax deductible and you will be emailed a receipt for tax purposes. To save Paypal fees, you can also mail us or Reece's Rainbow a check. Contact me for the mailing address for both. If you mail a check and win, I will wait for the check to clear before mailing you a prize or t-shirt. 
_______________________________________________

I know I don't have to remind you again, but without your help, this Sweet Girl will have to spend unnecessary days in an orphanage without a family, decent food, or proper medical care.

    1. The Chip In goes right to our Adoption Fund. The FSP (Family Sponsorship Page) goes to Reece's Rainbow. Reece's Rainbow makes those funds available to us on an as needed basis. Reece's Rainbow contributions are tax-deductible. If you don't want the deduction, I'd prefer the Chip In, but either way, it all goes to Sweet Girl. :)

  13. Hi Jessica! Love this story, and really looking forward to seeing the process. I shared on FB (Laura Arndt), donated $50, and started following here. Wish I had seen the difference in the Chip In and RR before I donated, but it went to the RR account. Best of luck raising funds!

  38. I prayed for your sweet girl after seeing her on Reece's Rainbow, and I'm so happy you found her! We sent in $20 to help get her home asap. Looks like you are in Winston-Salem? That's my hometown, though we are missionaries in W. Africa now. Our e-mail is k2rideout@gmail.com. (Kevin and Krista Rideout) and I shared about your giveaway on facebook (Krista Joy Rideout) If I don't respond immediately to e-mails, it's likely due to our recurring internet issues here. It comes and goes (one of the joys of West Africa) but we check it daily if it is working... I'll respond as soon as it works!
