Swallows and Forget-Me-Nots

It has been quite a busy time on our farm and I will do my very best to catch you up on all of that.  In the meantime, here is an update on our adoption progress…

Our dossier is in Bulgaria now and we are waiting for word that it has been approved, which should be followed (within days) by a written invitation to make our first trip to meet our children face-to-face!  We still have a little bit more fundraising to do to cover our placement fees.   And we need to do it quickly because our dossier is on the way to Bulgaria very shortly.

We thought that it would be fun to have another envelope fundraiser, but this time, every envelope is the same donation amount and every envelope purchased sends a little birdie to your door with a 1/2 oz. phial of our Sancta (Essence of Chrism) essential oil.

In Japan, it is good luck to receive 1000 cranes.  We haven’t got room for 1000 of anything in this little space, but we thought it would be sweet to do 100 swallows with sprigs of forget-me-not instead.  Swallows are symbolic of homecoming, and forget-me-nots need no further explanation.

Here’s how it works:

  • Choose how many swallows you want to purchase, and comment below and let us know how many you want.
  • Donate $25 for each swallow to Reeces Rainbow through PayPal
  • Email us your confirmation/receipt  (nissa_@_gadboisfamily_._com) from Reece’s Rainbow, along with your mailing address.
  • Whenever a swallow is sent, a wreath of forget-me-not will appear to show how many we have left!

Claim as many little birds as you wish!

When all 100 birdies have been claimed, we will have reached our goal for placement fees, plus a bit left over for travel expenses! Please share our fundraiser on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, email, and whatever other social media that you are a part of.  Feel free to pin our graphic above to your Pinterest account (and re-pin as it updates).  Every donation through Reece’s Rainbow is tax deductible.
