iPad2 Giveaway!!! I love Alexander!!!!

So, when we went to get Stas we met this precious boy....Alexander. 

If you have seen this video of him you know why we fell for him. He is so darn innocent and has been moved to a mental institution several months back. That is awful.  Pure innocence in a horrific place such as that. Look at him:

 Love, love, love him!

Even if you don't want an iPad....will you please just give something? If you want an iPad then I personally think you should give a whole lot!!!!! Make sure you leave a comment with how many chances you get.

Here is Christie's explanation and blog post:

iPad2 GIVEAWAY!!!!!

We are hosting our very own iPad giveaway. Shawn and I have talked this over, and prayed about it too. We have friends praying as well that God will bless this giveaway with an outpouring of funds. We must have our adoption costs covered quickly; unfortunately, time is not a luxury Alexander has. Alexander was still in a baby house/orphanage last year in July 2010--however, our son has been transferred to a MENTAL INSTITUTION and we need to get to him as soon as possible which means we need our fund to be full quickly also. Literally, every, single day he spends in the institution is robbing him of his achievements. He will regress quickly with little or no stimulation. Pictures of the institutions are not pretty. Some kids are tied to beds all day long, some are drugged to keep them quiet, some are left to their own devices and become nearly feral. His safety is at risk; his life depends on us rescuing him and GOD providing a way. While we do believe God will bless this journey, we also know we must be diligent in seeking what he has to offer us.

Sooo, here is what our package will offer:

Photobucket
iPad2 (choice of white or black)
16 GB with Wi-Fi
Your color choice of polyurethane sleep cover for the iPad2 (gray, blue, green, orange or pink)
Apple iPad2 Dock

THIS PACKAGE WILL NOT BE PURCHASED UNTIL AFTER THE GIVEAWAY CLOSES ON APRIL 17, 2010. WE WILL RUN THIS FUNDRAISER FOR ONE FULL MONTH. DRAWING WILL BE HELD ON APRIL 21, 2011. THE iPad2 WILL BE SHIPPED DIRECTLY TO THE WINNER. APPROXIMATE SHIPPING TIMES (RIGHT NOW) ARE 4-5 WEEKS.  

The person selected as the giveaway champion will receive an electronic receipt of the purchase and delivery information as soon as we have communication as to where to send the information.

Now, how do you get your chance at this package? First donate at least $10 to our Family Sponsorship Page (there is a donation link right here on my blog) just look for the Alexander for the Taylor Family Donations box with link to the right of this post you are reading right now.

If you do not have a paypal account you can mail a check to Reece's Rainbow with "Alexander for the Taylor Family" in the memo line and send it to:

Reece's Rainbow
P.O. Box 4024
Gaithersburg, MD 20885

Then you can come here to my blog and leave a comment, your name and entries will be tallied and added to our bucket to select the winners. This fundraiser will be live ONLINE and we will also be doing direct-face-to-face entries as well. What that means is this, my husband will be gathering entries through donations to Reece's Rainbow as well around town. 

For $10 you will get 1 entry (and 1 chance for a freebie entry)
For $25 you will get 3 entries (up to 3 chances for freebie entries)

How do you earn a freebie chance?

Once you have made a monetary donation, PLEASE share this blogpost for another entry. If you donate enough for one entry, you can only earn one freebie entry by reposting. BUT if you earn 3 entries you can earn 3 freebies. Facebook it for another entry. Tweet it for another entry. Blog it for another entry. SHARE, SHARE, SHARE. Momma said it was good to share, right? Come back here and let me know that you shared it and we will add to your entries for this giveaway. If you donate money multiple times over the weeks this giveaway runs--you will get entries for that too.  YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR NAME and, please, do not post just anonymously because I won't be able to find you if you are the winner.

So keep coming back to see how many entries are going in the bucket and watch the blessings unfold!!

Thank you!!!!!! You are BLESSING AJ and BLESSING our family too!!!!!
