The Great Gift Raffle

I have watched and participated as raffles have come and gone on many blogs. (I did win a t-shirt once!) And I thought...I can do that, maybe. So here is my attempt at a raffle. The title


comes from the idea I had to raffle items that would make great gifts this Christmas season. I think you will agree that any one of these items would make for a great gift to give or keep! :)
(~use our Minus 1 Project donation button on the sidebar)

For every $5.oo donation you will get one chance to win and
For every $10.00 donation you will get 3 chances to win and
For every $20.00 donation you will get 7 chances to win.

To win what?? Your choice, starting with the first name drawn. We will pick 8 names allowing the first picked to have first prize pick and so on down the line. Without further ado:

1. A large "got love?" hoodie
2. A $40.00 Visa giftcard
3. Your choice of a Wild Olive, short sleeve shirt
4. A 147 Million Orphans t-shirt
5. A copy of Fields of the Fatherless signed by Tom Davis
6. A Ugandan magazine necklace
7. A necklace from The Mama Sheep (
8. A "got love?" t-shirt, mug or tote

The raffle will run from tonight until Dec.15 at midnight. The list of winners will be posted Dec. 16th morning. I will be posting pictures of the prizes here for the next week along with stories and pictures from our home and family life.

Thank you for all your support and encouragement!!


  1. So I just ordered 2 tutus for a family that my friend has come to know, they came here from the Marshall Islands for a better education for the kids. There are 5 adults and 9 kids all living in one little house. We have "adopted" the 2 five year old girls. They are just going to LOVE these. I can't wait:)

  2. Kelly, what fun! Hope you raise a ton on this!!

  3. Do we just pay for our "raffle tickets" via the donate button?
