April Raffle! Win a custom-made afghan!

As you may recall, we had discussed doing some raffles as a fundraiser to help Aidan get Stem Cell and other therapies. This is the first of what I hope to be a monthly event through the rest of 2009.

What are you playing for this month? I'm glad you asked:

This month, the winner will get to have an afghan created specifically for them by Erin. You get to pick the color(s) and style(s) that interest you. She will then work with you to come up with a design. The design will determine how long it will take to complete the afghan. You will have until the end of the year to redeem your prize.

To enter, simply go to our online store to purchase your chances. You can buy 1 chance for $1 or 6 for $5. If you pay by PayPal, your entries will be guaranteed. You can pay by mail, but your entries will not be added until payment is received. Entries and payments will be accepted until April 30th. The drawing will occur on May 1st after 5PM Eastern time. If you happen to pay by mail and your payment is received after the 30th, don't worry ... your entry will be carried over to next month's raffle.

Good luck!

As for the Valentine-themed afghan Erin talked about raffling or auctioning off, she is most likely going to list it on eBay. She'll post the link to it once she gets it listed.

This is wonderful!!! I can't wait to get my tickets! And I'll be bidding on the Valentine's Day afghan on eBay when it's posted. AWESOME! I'll try to ask people I know if they'd like tickets, too!

Thanks for buying some raffle entries, Leslie. The other afghan is almost finished. I should have it completed tonight. I'll post the link for the ebay auction once it's up. We aren't going to have actual tickets, but we're keeping a spreadsheet of entries and will email your "ticket" numbers. We'll use a random number generator online to draw the winner. Good luck! We're coming up with other ideas for raffles.

You guys are doing so, so much... I just know the Lord will bless you with the perfect amount and funds and the perfect time for Adain to get the very best stem cell treatments. Getting there seems so difficult, I cannot even imagine how it seems. We'll keep praying for all of you along the way.
