5/5/5 Warrior

If you have visited my un-updated blog recently, you may have noticed the new picture on the right side that features "Katelyn". I have become her 5/5/5 warrior. Basically what this is, is that to celebrate Reece's Rainbow celebrate their 5th anniversary and over 500 orphans-no-more, they are pushing advocacy for all the 5 year olds listed. The goal is to raise $5,000, and help them find their forever family. Ok, so I admit, I'm a bit overwhelmed by those lofty goals. My blog doesn't have many followers, and that's how a lot of people fund raise. But I am determined to do the best I can for Katelyn, and so is my Shelby. She is already brainstorming ideas to raise money for her. The first fundraiser we are doing is pillowcases. I have donated a few of these to other blogger-friends fundraisers, and the response has been quite positive. My mom and aunt hand make these and we have dozens of themes. We have cotton and flannel. All are standard size. I'll get some pics posted soon, my computer crashed and it has all my photos on it, so the computer guy is trying to retrieve everything. In the meantime, pillowcase themes include cats, horses, Disney, Dora, butterflies, angels, fish, some sports teams, and lots of different colors. Each is $12. You can pay by clicking on the button to the right, it goes directly to Katelyn's adoption account on Reece's Rainbow, and is completely tax-deductable. Once you have paid, email me that you have and what type of pillowcase you want. We'll take special orders too!! Thank you for helping me help this sweet little girl, who has been an orphan way too long!!
