We have a matching grant! + a few other fundraiser updates (mmm...pralines)!

Currently, my FSP is at $410.61. Once it reads $500 ($89.39 more), I will have a matching grant of $100, bringing the total in my grant up to $600. This means that for every dollar you donate, I will receive about $2.12. You will more than double your money! BUT!!! It will not happen unless I get $89.39 more! The money is tax deductible so you have the potential to claim it on your taxes.

I am still selling my bath salts and body scrubs. $18 each, including shipping. The link is at the top of my blog. If you're interested in purchasing more than one, please e-mail me directly.

The owners of the Etsy shop PlusOneAdoption are generously donating a portion of their sales of pralines to me. The family that runs PlusOneAdoption is currently in the process of funding their own adoption as well! These pralines are $25 for a baker's dozen and come in 5 delicious flavors: Emily's Original, Bayou Bourbon, Café du Mile, and Ragin' Cajun Rum. When ordering, please make sure you select "Obenauf" on the family to benefit option.

As always, I have my Amazon link. It doesn't cost you anything to use it but a portion of your purchase does help me out. A win-win situation!

In January, two wonderful ladies will be sponsoring an auction for both me and another lady (her and her husband are adopting FOUR special needs children from EE). If you have anything you'd like to donate, please e-mail me and I will put you in touch with one of the ladies putting the auction on. I will also update when I have the auction dates.
