{WINNER} Baker’s Delight GiveAway!

Congratulations to Jen Lawler!

And thank you to everyone who donated and took a chance on this super fun prize!

UPDATE 10/18: This week, we were blessed by a fellow adoptive family who were moved to help us by covering our remaining travel expenses.  We are so grateful and humbled that they were willing and able to respond to God’s grace.  We pray that they will be blessed, too. Our tickets are now on hold and should be processed tomorrow.  We leave Boston on November 5th.

We will be keeping this giveaway going until November 2.  All funds raised from here on out will go toward what we need for our family and our apostolate.  Let’s see if we can get all of the cookies claimed so that we can give away the BIG prize!

UPDATE 10/12:  We need to raise these funds TODAY.  We have to purchase our airplane tickets and our hotel fees.  We would be so very blessed if you would share this post, or the link to our Mission: Adoption campaign.   And, as always, we treasure your prayers for our success!

We are just a few weeks from traveling to bring our new son and daughter home from Bulgaria (and then maybe we can catch up all of the posts we wanted to share about that adventure).  Just before we left for a week long trip to the World Meeting of Families Congress and Papal Visit, we got some very disappointing news.  There had been an error on our Reece’s Rainbow account.  Our total was $8000 less than we thought.  Since then, a kind donor has added $5000 to the account, but we are now still $3000  less than our previous amount and a total of $5000 short of our funding goal.

We must purchase our tickets NOW and pay for our lodging.  We leave the first week of November.

So we are doing another awesome giveaway to try to raise the remaining balance.  ONE family will receive a gorgeous KitchenAid Artisan ® Series Stand mixer in their choice of colour (20 to choose from).  I tell you, I would LOVE to have one of these.  I’ve always wanted one. And it comes just in time to do all of that Advent and Christmas baking!


AND if we fill all 200 envelopes, we will upgrade the mixer to a ProLine® Stand mixer with a 7qt bowl and attachments, PLUS a grain mill, pasta making set, and food processor – a total value of over $1500*

PLUS, every entrant will receive a little something from us as a special thank you for your generous gift.  So be sure to give us your shipping address.


Numbers 1-22, 23-30, 32, 40, 43, 48, 50, 198-200 are claimed!  Thank you!

Here’s how it works:

  • Choose one of the gingerbread children (comment below to let us know which one you’ve chosen)
  • Donate the amount that corresponds to the number on your gingerbread child directly to Mission: Adoption OR PayPal {nissa_@_gadboisfamily.com} Remember to remove those underscores! 😀
  • The graphic will be updated to show which numbers have been claimed.
  • On November 2 (All Souls Day AND Jojo’s birthday), we will draw one person at random to receive a brand new KitchenAid stand mixer!

Claim as many gingerbread children as you would like, each entry increases your chances of winning.

Please share our giveaway on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, email, and whatever other social media that I am blissfully unaware of.  Feel free to pin our graphic above (and re-pin as it updates).  Claim as many gingerbread children as you wish.  Each one counts as an entry, so the more you claim, the better your chances of receiving the prize!
