I'm holding a ginormous raffle! (scroll down to see prizes and purchase tickets.)
Hello, friends! Some of you may know that I've been spending some time on the BOD for Care Net Pregnancy Center of NW Houston. Care Net is a truly fabulous organization and I'm so blessed to be able to serve them. My heart is touched, every time I'm there, by the amazing way Care Net saves lives (physical and spiritual) and touches hearts and souls. They are genuinely concerned for the clients, and their babies, and offer care for women who might not receive it, otherwise.
So many inspiring stories come from this place. The ultrasound image, above, is from a client who was considering abortion. The ultrasound, provided by Care Net NW, showed her what her baby looks like, in the womb and, it just so happened that this baby was giving a "thumbs up" sign to mama, as if to say "I'm here. Look at me!" It's amazing that you can see that tiny fist, with the thumb sticking straight up.
Care Net NW is a non-profit, funded through donations of people who believe in the compassionate, practical care and support they provide. One of their two major fundraisers is coming up in April and, I'm sad to say, I'm not able to attend. Care Net NW is holding their Walk for Life, Sat. April 13, 2013.
"Steampunk in Color"
So, here's what I'm proposing...a raffle!
I'm going to raffle off some fab prizes and you can join in for $10 per ticket.
Buy as many tickets as you like. All payments will be through Paypal.
ALL of the proceeds will go directly to Care Net NW. Because I need to keep track of participants for the raffle, I'll be doing it, right here, from my blog and will deliver a check to Care Net NW.
