We are super grateful for so many gracious gifts already! All of our paper work and references have been submitted, we are simply waiting for something from the state to be submitted. This could happen any day now. Once that has been received by our agency, our Home Studies will be scheduled! Oh yes – we also have a check to write. 🙂
Right now we are working on several ways that others can help, and hope to have something for everyone. You can simply donate through GoFundMe or PayPal, but below are a few additional ways that would also help:
Amazon: Who doesn’t shop online anymore? Before you do your shopping, would you consider using our affiliate link? This will give us a very small percentage back from your purchases – and if you are shopping any how, it does not cost you anything extra.
Online Auction: We have several items to get rid of as we make room for Teddy. Auction runs from October 24-31. Highest bidder at the end of the day on October 31. Will ship at buyers expense or arrange local pick up within 72 hours of auction closing. Feel free to invite others or donate some items as well.
Mini Sessions: We have opened up mini photo sessions for November 14 at Lake Lily in Maitland. This is a great way to get those family photos done for Christmas cards or add some updated artwork to your home. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your time. Limited availability (but will consider opening another date if needed.)
Party: Several different friends are hosting fundraising parties throughout the next few weeks. There is already A Jamberry and Jewelry Trunk Show scheduled. If you would like to participate in any of these, or would like to hold one for another company, please let us know.
Milk: Yes – milk. With all the benefits of breast milk, we would love to be able to have a supply at least half of his feedings with breast milk while supplementing with formula. If you happen to have (or will have) a supply of milk, would you consider donating some to our freezer?
Share: Yes – please please please share with anyone and everyone! We already have heard from a few people offering their services to raise funds for Teddy. Any thing you can do as an individual, family, small group, or church would be a huge help!
Thanks again for partnering with us and #bringingteddyhome.
