Giveaway for Taylor

This is a giveaway to benefit Taylor, a 7 year old orphan from Eastern Europe that is HIV+.

If you want to find out why I am calling this a Ten for Ten for Ten Giveaway you will have to read all the way through to the ALL CAPS print to find the BREAKING NEWS!!!!!



Taylor's new family will be traveling to adopt her on June 16. They have 2 weeks to raise the remainder of the funds needed to adopt her. Right now they still need to raise about $24,500 to be able to adopt her. You can read more about their story here.

Over the years Taylor has asked other families, that have arrived at her orphanage to adopt children, when someone will be coming to adopt her. She is currently at a baby orphanage but because of her age, she is in danger of being transferred. If she is not adopted soon she will be transferred to an institution. She really is running out of time and needs to be adopted ASAP. The Dewberry's are very willing but need your help to do it.

So I have gathered some donations from some very generous people.

Take a look at the prizes.

Adorable Girls Skirts. We have two to give away. You get to pick the size up to 4T. One will be the blue/green combo and the other will be the giraffe/stripes combo. Please state your preference and size you would want.

Bracelet from the Noonday Collection
This piece is handmade in a region of India that is not farmable because of
the climate and topography of the area, so residents must depend on crafts
for their livelihood. Increased disputes over the land between Pakistan and
India have given rise to violence, threatening the safety of tourists and
residents alike. This has decreased tourism and the artisans access to a
market. Through fair trade, they now have a market for their products.
