Shoot for the Stars Giveaway UPDATED with new prize!

Like a shooting star Celine wishes for a family, waiting & wondering when that wish will come true. To help fulfill that wish she needs our help! Adoption can cost anywhere from $20,000-$40,000. I know EXPENSIVE, & from what I have heard from others where Celine is at is one of the HIGHER COST countries. To help, I am doing a Giveaway to help offset the financial cost for a family to adopt her. I don't have any fancy electronics but I do have some nice prizes & what more can a girl do to help make Celine's wish come true? I have received some nice prize donations so let the fun begin! $5 per entry or $10 for 3 entries. Can't donate right now? Well you can get 1 entry for posting on Facebook, 1 for twitter, & 1 for a blog post.
Prizes will be shipped directly from prize contributor unless specified. Can Only ship to USA on all prizes.
First up we have the book I Wished for You An Adoption Story donated by Katrina retailed at $10

Next, this lovely tutu size 3t donated by Reagen Lynn Inspirations retailed at $50

And because the girls of To Love the Unloved are so nice to share some of the love that's been given to them we have this bracelet Made with various colours of swarkovski crystals! What a better way to show your support to Reece's Rainbow!

Because who does not love Starbucks my mom & I have combined efforts to make a combo prize of this Starbucks mug & $5 gift card!
I could not find a picture of the birdy gift card I got so here's a picture of Starbucks.

& the Starbucks mug Package value of $15

2 Handmade bracelets & a Wiener dog Print package (not pictured)
The lovely All Life is Precious Necklace, the T21 representing the 21st chromosome donated by OllieFaithDesigns etsy shop Valued at $44

& for you moms with a boy with that extra chromosome this is an awesome shirt donated by Gretchen Thibault size 2-4 but she says she thinks it might work best for sz 3t

Next is a $15 gift certificate to Handiwork for Lily, these are some awesome young girls raising awareness for the kids on Reeces Rainbow. Sarah has 2 brothers adopted through Reeces Rainbow. Here's a sample of the handmade goodies you can enjoy,

& feel free to check out their blog Handiwork for Lily
A lovely Adoption Pendant Necklace donated by Sarah, formerly the owner of the etsy shop SarahsTreasureBox.

A $25 chili's gift card donated by Stephanie Lynch

So my friend Mischel makes these awesome hippos for shower gifts & I just LOVE THEM so I asked her if she would donate one & she said yes. (picture not available right now)
So there you have it, some awesome prizes! Donate to the chipin at the top right corner of the page & please leave comment saying you have donated or shared. Please put Celine in the notes part when you donate to make sure it gets to her! I have decided to add Cora Lynne into the giveaway once we reach $1,000. When I do add her, it won't be through a chipin but instead to the button to the right with her name that will also go directly to her grant but please wait til we reach that goal as I want to stick with my original main focus of Celine. All donations made to Reeces Rainbow are Tax Deductible! Also if you would still like to donate a prize to the giveaway please leave a comment with your contact email address & I will contact you. Since I have a limit due to being young & not a job, & the fact of having so many prizes to ship already (not a bad thing) any prize contributers from now on must be willing to ship to the winner. (only in the USA) I will delete comments once they are recieved for privacy sake since my blog is public. Giveaway ends October 1st & winners will be announced then on the blog.

I shared on my blog. I hope you get more donations soon. I really want sweet Celine to find her mother.

Carlene's soon to be momma :)

Cynthia said...

I found out about your giveaway on another blog! I was just thinking today that after we finish with the adoption of our twins...I want to continue to work to bring other children to their families. I am actually thinking that I may be able to donate to your giveaway since we will be getting our business website up tomorrow in order to fundraise to bring our children home! Stay posted....and if you see something that you want to use on your giveaway let me know!

Leah, I can't donate right now as we are working hard to bring Heidi home but I have posted a link(on FB) to this post hoping to encourage others to "shoot for the stars."

Many blessings,
Amy Peterson

Thanks Amy for sharing! I am so happy for Heidi, she has been another one of my favorites that I wanted to have a family.
