Raffle for Brooklyn

*** UPDATE ON RAFFLE: Friends, we are having such exciting responses from our fundraising efforts that I'm changing the program that we'll use to draw our winner.  We will be using "Random Picker," an internet raffle drawing generator.  Continue to purchase raffle entries for $10 (worth 2 pts each) and share our fundraising website on Facebook, Twitter, or your blog for an entry (worth 1 pt each).  You can purchase as many tickets or share as many times as you'd like!  IF YOU HAVE DONATED OR SHARED, PLEASE TELL US IN SOME WAY SO WE CAN ADD YOU TO THE "RANDOM PICKER" LIST--THRU FB COMMENT, BLOG COMMENT, EMAIL, OR BY FILLING OUT THE RAFFLECOPTER BELOW.  We also have friends hosting their own private fundraisers, and therefore we're accepting offline donations (which go into a separate account we have just for adoption expenses).  We're looking into how to reflect the change in offline donations given, and we'll be showing that as soon as we can.  We are blown away by your generosity, friends!!! ***

Immediately after sharing our exciting news, some dear friends of ours jumped into action.  One of them was Brian Crenshaw, a fellow adoptive parent, student ministry director of our church (Fellowship Memphis), and a very talented artist.  He expressed a desire to paint a piece for us to put in a raffle or auction off.  He got right to work on it, and brought it over shortly thereafter.

Isn't it beautiful?  It is entitled "For Brooklyn."  It is approximately 24x24 painted on wood plank and trimmed with a simple wood frame.  I am in LOVE with this painting--the colors are some of my favorites, and it makes me feel peaceful.

But alas, it's not "For Jesse," so here's what we're going to do blog friends: we're going to raffle off this painting.  It is worth an estimated retail price of $400+.  It would make an unforgettable Christmas gift for a loved one...or for yourself!  I'll ship this beauty anywhere within the United States, and shipping is on us! 

1. Entries can be purchased for $10 each by donating on our Razoo fundraising website.
(If you purchase more than one ticket, just let me know in the the appropriate place on Rafflecopter and I'll adjust your number of entries manually.)

2. Tickets can also be "earned" by sharing our Razoo fundraising website on Facebook, Twitter, or your blog and asking your friends to donate!
(One ticket per social networking platform per day--just let me know if you share on more than one platform and I'll adjust your number of entries.)

**PURCHASED ENTRIES receive 2 POINTS PER ENTRY, and social networking entries will receive 1 point her entry.  However, you never know which entry will win!  May the odds be ever in your favor!
