Keep reading til the bottom to see what YOU are doing for Olga!!!!!
I am beyond excited- I am so wrapped up in this Christmas Miracle I can't even see straight or talk about it without getting choked up. Ask my kids.
Yesterday the last amount Olga had in her fund was $1,886. My kids were checking every fifteen minutes. Or two. Even Abbi (age 8) kept sneaking in my room to the computer and running back out to yell out an update for us.
I don't know what you are doing out there...but IT IS WORKING.
The totals on Olga's fund today do not reflect the true amount that has come in- I have my inside sources :) checking on what is happening- but I think you are overloading the system!! We had over 2,400 hits on Lily's blog yesterday...if you don't know what that means- on a normal day she gets 200-400 page views.
I woke up this morning and at 7 a.m. 500 people had already come here- to see what all the fuss was about.
I cannot WAIT to tell you what the new numbers are- but know this- WE ARE DOING THIS!
Please,please, keep spreading the word- if we can raise almost $2,000 in one day- and sustain that for ten days- this will truly be the Christmas Miracle we have been praying for, for Olga.
And if you have no idea what I'm taling about- read my post below.
And can I just say that I have the sweetest kids on the planet? We showed them Olga, told them what we are doing- and my kids......help....can't stop tears...went and put their minds together...and they are selling their prized possession on Craig's List...their playstation2 and all their games to raise money for Olga. And believe me- it is their prized possession.
Can I just say something else? We are not a wealthy family. By any stretch. We have 9 kids at home in a 3 bedroom house. I said that NOT to gain sympathy- but to say- you don't have to have piles of money to give. We give what we can- and we let GOD do the rest. He will multiply- HE IS multiplying!
My husband wanted me to tell people this...do you realize that if every visitor gave $10...only ten dollars...we would have had Olga's money in one day. I just don't want anyone to think their little part doesn't make a difference. IT DOES.
As soon as I have the new numbers I am going to post them- until then please- keep doing what you are doing!! If it means bumping your FB post up, or re-blogging about this, or re-tweeting (is that a word) or texting or calling or emailing- please keep this going...
This beautiful little girl is going to be changed forever because of what we are doing!
