The Lost Get Found Giveaway

When I was first thinking about doing yet another Giveaway for Celine, I thought how in the world am I going to do one without money to buy something big to use? Well, God knew the Lost needed to be found. Reccently as we were moving, I came upon a box. Since it was around christmas I asked just incase it might be some present Mom had already ordered. Dad decided it was probably okay to open it, so we opened the box come to the surprise of us what was inside-A Brand New American Girl Emily doll. Santa had some mishap that happened so he had ended up reordering that same doll for my sister 4 years ago & forgot to return this Treasure. My Mom kindly said I could use it for a Giveaway. I knew God had answered my prayers by giving me this Lost Treasure that needed to be found. Most reccently I had been thinking of another treasure waiting to be found, a 10 yr old boy named Heath. His Grant not nearly the size of Celines, I could not get him out of my thoughts, which brought me to add him to benefit from this Giveaway & a name change that was more fitting to the whole point of the thing. While Emily has waited for 4 years to be played with, Heath & Celine have waited & waited & waited for their families. Both in Institutions, Heath in a far worse one & Celine in one of the better ones but both Lost waiting to be Found. Let's Help so that these 2 lost orphans can be FOUND! In celines region it can cost up to $40,000 sometimes more for her to be adopted so although she has a grant of $7,000+ its still not nearly what would be needed to adopt her. Heaths adoption probably cost $20,000-35,000 or more.
Donate to the donation box to the left, Heath has 1 & Celine has 1 so make sure you get the correct one. (Cora Lynne is not included in the Giveaway so make sure you don't accidentally do her donation box but feel free to still donate to her if you would like to) I dearly ask that you visit all etsy shops I have listed who so have generously donated prizes for this Giveaway! Some have adoption related products, others just fun products, & some with Down Syndrome awareness items. Please check out all our etsy donors!!! Once you have donated PLEASE LEAVE COMMENT saying you did as I have no way of knowing who donated. I thought the donation boxes were easier & fun to do than have the chipins that way I get see before/after of how much their total grant is at!
$10 donation per entry to either Heath and/or Celine DONATIONS CAN BE SPLIT BETWEEN THE 2! or $20 donation=16 entries YEP I AM GOING WILD FOR THE LAST 8 HOURS!! OR DONATE $5 OR MORE TO Masha which gets you 2 additional entries!! Help Masha reach $1,000 goal & the others get the best chance at finding families!!!
Any donation over $100 must forward their paypal reciept to singergirl15@yahoo.com. I want to make sure no one tries to scam me that way. thanks!
