Can you believe over 600 million shoes go into landfills in the U.S. every year?! To combat this unnecessary waste and raise money for our adoption, we have partnered with a really cool fundraising company to collect new and gently used shoes! We can accept all sizes and types of shoes—men's, women's, and kid's—as long as they're in good shape!
NOONDAY TRUNK SHOW
Thank you to all of the lovely ladies who've shopped our Noonday Collection Trunk Shows! You've made a huge impact on artisans around the globe AND supported our adoption! Let us know if you would like to host your own Trunk Show in the future... not only would you help us raise money to bring our future kiddo home, but also score 50% off unique handmade jewelry, bags, and accessories!! Our Noonday Ambassador, Ingrid, makes hosting literally effortless.
After many requests... we brought Super Bowl Squares BACK! We created a board with a 10x10 grid of squares --100 total, and "sold" them for $20/square. Each row and column were randomly assigned a number from 0 to 9 before Super Bowl LVI on February 13, 2022. Based on the score of the game each quarter, four winners won $1,000 total. We were so blessed than some winners donated their winnings back to our adoption fund!
We made a puzzle with one of our favorite Harry Potter quotes, and our family helped us piece it together! We then wrote the names of all who adopted puzzle pieces on the back of the puzzle. We will hang it in our future kiddo's room so that they can see the names of all of the people who love them in their forever family!
If you are interested in supporting our adoption fund, you may donate online through AdoptTogether (similar to GoFundMe, but specifically for adoptions!). All funds are guaranteed to be used for adoption expenses. To withdraw funds, we must submit receipts to prove the funds are used as intended. AdoptTogether is a registered nonprofit, so all donations are tax-deductible!
We celebrated the NCAA men's basketball tournament with a fun March Madness bracket challenge. Entrants paid a $10 donation. 50% of all donations went toward our adoption fund and 50% was placed in the winner's pot! 1st place won 70% of the winner's pot, 2nd place won 20%, and 3rd place won 10%.
Everyone seemed to LOVE Super Bowl Squares, so we decided to bring it back sooner! We played Squares again for the Iowa vs. Iowa State game on September 11, 2021. We created a board with a 10x10 grid of squares --100 total, and sold them for $20/square. Each row and column was randomly assigned a number from 0 to 9 before the game. Based on the score of the game each quarter, four winners won $1,000 total... though all of the winners donated winnings back to us!
