Ten Dollar Tuesday for the Taylor

I've been thinking. It's time to turn up the tempo on the fundraising tricks for the Taylors.

First, its time to introduce the Taylor Team:
Meet Shawn and Christie

Oldest son, Jared

The Twins...that's TWO of them.....Joseph and Jackson.

Aren't they breathtakingly attractive?

But time is ticking!

It won't be too long before it's time for their trip...

time for  tickets....

and time for travel.... 

That's terrific.....right?

Well, of course.

But, let me tell you the trouble.


Funds are trickling in at a tortoise's trot....(that is SLOW!!)

TREASURE is important and time is of the essence!

If only treasure grew on trees :(

They have tried
to tackle this trouble by turning to their trusty trooper-like friends.
They used Twitter and tons of other tricks.
They've tried tricky twists to their tumultuous fundraiser tactics.
Remember the time Christie tried tempting us into telling her the true name of her new tiny tot by posting the letters of his name?

Of course, truth be told, and the Taylors know this too, the true treasure is this tiny little tot named Jadon.
(Talk about CUTE!!)

At the age of two he's too young to know what a turn his life will soon take.

The Taylor's tale has had many twists and turns but the ending will all be terrific.

Let's turn up the heat!!!

It's your turn.
Let me tell you your task.

You might imagine, and you certainly CAN, the Taylors have tons to do to travel. Let's tell them to take time from this tumultuous task and tell them to start packing. There's other such tasks, like trying to decide what tacky gifts to get for their tot's caretakers and tending to the task of who will take care of the twins while they travel....and Jaden too! Heck it will probably take ten or so trips to Target to pack for THIS trip!

How 'bout WE take care of the rest.

Can you give $10 to the Taylors today?
That's all....
10 dollars!

Click on "donate" and type in "10" in the amount total line (or more is a real treat!!!)

We need 100 people to give 10 dollars!

If we don't get tons of tens on Tuesday, we'll have to be working on Wednesday at the tiresome task to get Thirty dollars on Thursday, or work furiously fast for FIFTY on Friday...oh....that sounds TERRIBLE.  Let's just try for tons of TENS on TUESDAY...please!
I'll be totally tongue tied if we don't!

This whole "10" thing....

It's not terribly time consuming or troublesome or tedious to help them get to their total. But it is tremendously appreciated. TRULY!

Just type in
on their family sponsor page.

What a treat to hear Christie Taylor say "Totally Awesome.....my trusty friends, and even some acquaintances tossed us over the top of the Taylor family grant total!!!"

Wouldn't that be TERRIFIC?????

That's all you have to do.

TTFN...ta ta for today...I mean ta ta for now!


PS: Would you consider Tweeting this too?


  1. YOU GO GRETCHEN!!! YOU KNOW YOU ARE MY HERO???? I am in awe of your passion and love for the RR families and their adoptions!! I love your heart!!!! Thank you for supporting so many!! You make my heart glad each time I see your name listed on a families donation list.


  3. I am totally taken by this tiny tot, so today, this mom of twins (twice!) is throwing in twice the ten for a twenty-dollar Tuesday ...


  4. I feel like I just read something out of Dr. Seuss! Ha! I will spread the word now.
