Fundraiser Friday

Our Usborne books fundraiser is almost over! Amy will be closing the show on Tuesday, October 2 at 11:00 p.m. This fundraiser is going WONDERFULLY! We currently have $620.45 in commissionable sales which means we will be receiving $155 that will go towards our adoption AND we will be able to get $220 in free books! My original goal for this fundraiser was to get $650 in commissionable sales so we could get $240 in free books, which is what I thought was the maximum amount. However, Amy told me yesterday that there is NO CAP on the free books! For every $50 in commissionable sales over $650, we will get an additional $20 in free books! So my NEW goal for this fundraiser is to get $1000 in commissionable sales, $250 going towards our adoption, and $520 in free books! With 4 more days left in the fundraiser, we would only need to have $95 in books purchased each day. I KNOW it can happen. So click here and start shopping for high-quality, entertaining, and educational books. If you need suggestions, let me know and I'll give you some!

I also want to give you a sneak peak of what we have coming up next. Usborne Books has a "true" fundraiser called Cards for a Cause. I say "true" because that is their actual fundraiser. This current book show is a fundraiser because Amy is giving us her commission. With Cards for a Cause, you get 30 handmade cards with matching envelopes in a keepsake box for only $30. That is $1 per card! There are 2 boxes available. Box 1 has all-occasion cards and box 2 has novelty cards for kids. We will receive $13 per box and once again Amy will be giving us her commission so we will actually get $15.89 PER BOX. Check out the website here. We have to have a minimum of 15 boxes ordered before it can be submitted, but I'm hoping to have more than that! I'll be ordering both boxes with some of my free book balance, so if you live near me you can look at the cards. This fundraiser will run from October 7-28. You can take a look at some of the cards you could get below. 

Aren't they SO CUTE?

Today I Kissed an Angel

Today I kissed an angel. I knew it from the start. The first time my angel smiled at me; I gave away my heart.

Today I kissed an angel; This angel child of mine. Though not of my creation, My child by God's design.

Today I kissed an angel. My heart is dancing wild; Our family, by a miracle; Blessed by our angel child.
