MacBook Pro Giveaway...A Dream Come True

First order of business: CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY MY LAST POST IS NOT SHOWING UP ON BLOGGER??? 

Okay, glad to get that off my chest. Seriously, I was so frustrated all yesterday- I just started a FABULOUS give away for a MacBook Pro- if you don't have a clue what I'm talking about because of Blogger messing with the feed for that post, you will in a minute. If any of you reading this have a clue what is happening (notice- the sidebar shows my last post as "Jack and Lily's Giveaway Weekend" when it was actually "A Dream Come True- MacBook Pro Giveaway !") please leave a comment telling me how to fix it!

Secondly...

YOU PEOPLE ARE FLIPPING AWESOME !!!!!!


Okay, sorry- that was my inner teenager coming out. What I meant to say, as a 44 year old mother of ten and pastor's wife, was


I CANNOT FLIPPING BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED FOR TAYLOR YESTERDAY !!! YOU PEOPLE ROCK !!!!!!!

Do you know what you did?

$3,995 !!!!!!!!!!!

That's what came in yesterday for little Taylor and the Dewberry family...

 
 My sweet and prayerful friend Julia (please go read HER BLOG) had the brilliant inspiration to start a Ten for Ten in Ten Days campaign for Taylor. The Dewberry family is traveling in ten days to rescue her, and they needed about $22,000. Julia had an anonymous donor offer to match $10,000 for a child. Julia prayed, asked her husband to pray, prayed again....and decided to go for it. If we raise ten thousand dollars in ten days, the matching grant of $10,000 will just about get the Dewberry's fully funded.

Fundraising is a scary business. You put your heart on the line and ask people you've never even met before, to give their hard earned money to a child you've never met before, and you could end up just looking like a real flake. And not raising a dime.

But to quote a dear friend of mine...


But God...


Because when God gets involved, and His people rise up to the challenge, miracles happen. We're trying to raise ten thousand dollars for the Dewberry family in ten days, and almost half of that just came in, in one day.

And in case you missed it, we have a pretty wonderful prize as an incentive...


The new MacBook Pro laptop. 13". With quad-core Intel Core i7 processors, AMD Radeon graphics, ultrafast Thunderbolt input/output, and FaceTime HD camera.  valued at $1200.

 It's happening, people- A DREAM COME TRUE !!!!!!

I needed to read this post because my husband and I will be doing a fundraiser for an orphanage and we are scared. It's a whole different organization than RR but it's great and you can't adopt the kids, they enter a large family with support forever. I have the evite ready and I just need to send it out already! I will definitely help out with this fundraiser too!
