And The Winner Is...

First and foremost, Thank You to everyone who donated to our Vera Bradley raffle. I truly did not expect to have that many donations. You guys rock! I am also excited to let you all know that the adoption fundraiser garage sale we had this weekend was a huge success. We were able to make enough money to cover the cost of our immigrations feel of $830.00! We had so much stuff from our home as well as what was donated from family and friends.

THANK YOU to everyone who donated something. Whether it was bog or small, every little bit helped. I put an ad in our local newspaper about our garage sale being a fundraiser for a China adoption and was completely surprised by the amount of people we had show up just because of the ad. We even had one family come from Ohio (we live in IN) because they saw it was a fundraiser for an adoption.

Before announcing the winner of the Vera Bradley, here are some pictures from our sale.









Okay, and now for what you have all been waiting for, the winner of the beautiful Vera Bradley is Donnie Statom! Congratulations Donnie, I will be mailing your bag our tomorrow.

Thanks again everybody!!!!
