Christmas for Carter Fundraisers!!

OK, I know you all are just waiting with baited breath to know ALL that we have going on to support Carter this Christmas Season.  SO... without further ado... Here we go!!

On November 1-13, we'll be hosting an auction at our Facebook Page.  PLEASE come like the page and check us out!!  We're still accepting donations, so if you have something you'd like to include, send it in!!

On December 1-7, we'll be hosting a giveaway here on the blog!!  Stay tuned for that!!

From NOW until November 30, we're having a fundraiser with Tastefully Simple!  My beautiful Sister-in-Love, Aryn, is a Tastefully Simple consultant, and is VERY generously donating ALL of her commission to Carter!! You can join our Facebook Event Page, and then order at Aryn's Tastefully Simple Site.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be sure to put in the Address 2 line of your shipping REECE'S CARTER FUNDRAISER, so Aryn knows that the order is for Carter!!

Are you a coffe-aholic?  I so am.  My kids tease me MERCILESSLY.  (They seem to conveniently ignore the fact that they're the REASON I need coffee!!)  Well, I'm picky about my coffee, so I bet you are, too!  Head over to our Christmas for Carter Coffee Shop, sponsored by (local to me!) Just Love Coffee, for organic, fair trade, awesome coffee!   There is a huge variety of coffee (including green coffee--TOO COOL!!), apparel, mugs, music, and equipment to help you brew the perfect cup!

There is nothing better than hot coffee on a cold morning.  NOTHING!!  So definitely check out the Christmas for Carter Coffee Shop!

OK, up next, for that super fun family night, we've got Fun Pasta Fundraising!  These adorably shaped pasta are the PERFECT thing for a cold winter's night in!  With all types of themes, from snowmen to girls' night out and even collegate teams (PERFECT for Saturday afternoon football!), everyone is going to LOVE these!

OK, that's what I have going on so far.  I'll add more as we get more going on.  Now, some reminders for Angel Tree:  Our goal is to raise AT LEAST $1,000 FOR CARTER.  You can help us do that a number of ways.

1)  You can shop through one of the above links.
2)  You can donate directly at Carter's Reece's Rainbow page.
3)  You can send a check in to Reece's Rainbow for Carter.  (PLEASE note in the memo line:  Carter 14G)

Now, you are welcome to donate WHATEVER amount you are able to!  God takes your widow's mite and adds it to my widow's mite, and together, we get Carter home!  If you donate $35 or more, Reece's Rainbow will send you this BEAUTIFUL ornament with Carter's picture on the other side!

You have the option of getting an ornament with every $35 you donate.  So, for $70, you can get 2, for $105, you can get 3!!  How awesome is that??  Also, you can donate for someone else, and have the ornament sent directly to them!

All right, we've covered Carter, but here's my boggle... see, I sorta kinda promised a couple of friends that I would help them fundraise for their Angels, too.  AND... both of my Guardian Angel kids got voted on the Angel tree, too!!  PRAISE GOD!  I can't very well leave Kate and Owen behind, now, can I?  So, here's what we're going to do:

When Carter reaches the magic number in his Fund of $2,729 (which will be his $1,000), I'm going to open up all of my fundraisers to Kristie, the Angel of the friend I promised to help.

When Kristie's grant reaches a minimum of $628 (that's $500 more than she has at the time I write this), I will open it up to Owen.

When Owen reaches $3,656.50 ($500 more than now), I will open it up to Kate.

When Kate has $2,243.70, we'll open it up to Anna.

Got all that?  So, the long and short of it is, the sooner we hit our goals, the more kids we can help!

We can do this!!  Let's rock the Christmas Season!!
