We've partnered with CauseTeam to create t-shirts and hoodies to sell to help with our adoption expenses! We are required to pay a $2,500 "Homestudy Fee" before moving on to the next step of our adoption. 40% of shirt sales will go toward this fee and help us move forward with our adoption process. Have too many t-shirts? ALL of the products on their site benefit our adoption -- including gorgeous prints, jewelry, mugs, and more! #LoveMakesAFamily
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.
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!
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!
Year 3 of Super Bowl Squares was a success! We created a board with a 10x10 grid of squares --100 total, and "sold" them for $20/square. $10 went to our adoption fund, and the other $10 was put in the pot for the four winners! Each row and column was randomly assigned a number from 0 to 9 before Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023. Based on the score of the game each quarter, we gave away $100, $200, $300, and $400 -- for a total of $1,000!
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%.
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!
