Joshua

Posted on

I’d like to introduce you to an amazing kid.

He is 8.

I am told he is super sweet.

He is bright.

He wants to go to school.

He wants to learn to read and write.

Oh, and he loves Minions!  Yes, the little yellow guys.

But he gets teased…  Why?

Because of his face.

image

He has such a beautiful face though, doesn’t he?

However it isn’t only about the teasing.  For Joshua the protrusion on his face is life threatening.

Thankfully, Maya’s Hope has stepped in and offered to help raise funds for his surgery.  In the Philippines, you have to prove you can pay before they will treat you.

image

Joshua needs Maya’s Hope, and Maya’s Hope needs YOU!

Please go here to help one of three different amazing causes or donate a little to each of them!  Oh, and when you donate, you’ll be entered to win some money and some bling!

Let’s  band together and do something great today!

Thank you!

Little Princess Chesca

Posted on

I know many have read about the fundraiser that I’m currently running.

One special reason I am doing this fundraiser…  6 year old Chesca.

image

Look at this beautiful girl! She is so special, and from what I’m told, quite spunky. She loves princesses and dolls just like any other 6 year old girl. But sweet Chesca has something else about her…

She has stage 4 Ewing’s Sarcoma and we recently discovered that she has no further options.  The cancer has spread and chemo is no longer possible.

image

Maya’s Hope funds her care, and has been for quite some time.
This tough little angel has been through so much in her short life.  She has been an absolute inspiration for all who follow her journey… Being positively charming and strong through multiple rounds of chemo, pokes and tests, all while the cancer and her enlarged arm is causing intense pain. 

image

Now the focus is on giving little Chesca the most comfortable life possible for however long we still have her.  You see, in the Philippines, you must prove you can pay or you cannot receive medical care.  Without your help, her treatment and pain management will not be possible. And without medication, she is in unimaginable pain.
Please consider donating and helping a worthy cause. 
If you want to help Chesca and some other great kids, and maybe win yourself a nice prize, go here to learn more.

Every now and again I get time to focus on something really special…

So, I’m holding a giveaway! 

Who will benefit from this giveaway you ask?

First; the amazing Maya’s Hope

Maya’s Hope is a fabulous organization that works to improve the quality of life for orphaned children with special needs worldwide.  
Children like the sweethearts at   Kalinovka Orphanage, and precious lifesaving surgery for Joshua are just a couple. 
image

Joshua’s life depends on his getting the surgery he needs. Maya’s Hope has stepped in and provided for this need. However, his care greatly depends on the generosity of awesome folks like you!

UPDATED: The second, was Vitaly… image

Look at how sweet…  However, he was so malnourished, so tiny, he passed away sometime since my fundraiser began.  I just got word…  He was almost 10 years old and desperately needed intervention, but he just couldn’t hold on any longer. 

My heart is broken.

It is a matter of life and death for these kids.  

image

He waited in a crib for ten years.
 

And thirdly, Ben… My love!
image

This cute little booger is so tiny too, just like Vitaly.  He has waited 6 years for a mama to hold him.  6 years! Ben has no real life… He is a fighter though and his caregivers have reported that he has started smiling and cruising around in his crib! He’s a sparkly little dude who I hope to see flourish with a family of his own.

The last cause I’d love to help is a really amazing Oregon family bring home a very tiny, precious little girl named Hope who is desperately medically fragile and running out of time.
image

I know it sounds heavy, but she’s 7 years old and just 10 lbs! She needs help.  I know this family, the Horton’s, and they are amazing! There is just no better family for this angel to join, she will be so very loved. In fact, she is already.  The donation I hope you’ll help to provide is just to help nudge them along so they can get their sweet one the care she needs a quickly as possible.
 

That’s why I am holding a giveaway! 

What am I giving away?  This!
image

Oh yes…
image

That’s really…
image

A genuine Pandora bracelet! 
image

It’s a beautiful 7.5″ sterling silver Pandora clasp bracelet with a purple glass heart design charm.  This bracelet has been worn once and of course, for the photos.  It’s beautiful! This bracelet is valued at over $100! 

image

But wait!  There’s one more thing… The person who wins will not only get the beautiful bracelet.   They’ll also win a $150 Visa gift card!  Spend it anywhere!
image

That’s a total prize value of over $250!

The drawing will be video taped and will be done by assigning everyone a number on a piece of paper, and placing the corresponding amount of said number, reflecting how many chances the person has, into a large bowl/bag/vessel.  I will then reach in and draw a number, thus revealing the winner. Winner will be notified via Facebook and/or email.  If the winner does not respond within 5 days from the date of notification, a runner up will be drawn. This drawing will take place on July 20th, if we have met our minimum.   I will extend it only if absolutely necessary to reach my minimum goal of $1,500.
The drawing has been extended until we reach at least $1,500! I’d love to raise even more and really bless the socks off these people!    It sounds like a lot, but I think we can do this!   Thank you!
