Shoot for the Stars Giveaway

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! Just cause I am wanting to reach the goal & how awesome I am for the last 3 days its $5 per entry, $10 for 10 entries, $20 for 20. Can't donate right now? Well you can get 1 free entry for posting on Facebook, 1 free entry for twitter, & 1 free entry for a blog post. Each new donor now gets an additional entry so instead of 1 entry you get 2, instead of 3 you get 4, etc. Did a friend refer you? Please leave comment with their name & that friend gets a free entry! Did you see the new movie courageous? I did & fully enjoyed it! Leave a comment with your thoughts on the movie & you get a free entry as well! Its that simple with loads of ways for free entries!
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 a swarkovski crystal bracelet!
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

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. Is this not adorable?

Because of my love for Karen Kingsbury novels, Unlocked by Karen Kingsbury! Valued at $15

This is a book, that I won at some auction that now I want to pass along to someone else to enjoy! Its autographed copy of A Very Special Athlete valued at $14.95

& heres his autograph:

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! Since I have heard such great news today about the girls (and all the older children!) get to keep their grants til they are 10, 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 31st & winners will be announced then on the blog.
