A Raffle


Do you want to own an authentic David and Sheku bag for only $10.00?

It was purchased to help support an amazing cause. You can read all about David and Sheku on Jody's blog. *BTW*If you don't know Jody you should;)

It's a beautiful bag. I love it! So then why on earth am I selling it?
For this beautiful boy and his family.
Please note*****It's only the bag that my beautiful daughter is modeling that is being raffled for $10.00*****

If you read my blog then you have read about this family. Long story short- Josiah is fighting something that they don't know what it is yet. At first they thought it was cancer-He has been receiving blood transfusions. His mom is due any day to give birth to her 5th child. His dad has lost his union job due to the economy. They are truly living one of my worst fears. But they are doing so with grace and glorifying God with their faithfulness in wanting to serve HIM. I encourage you to go and read her blog. They are trying to pull together enough funds to bank her yet to be born, but coming any day baby's cord blood. I'm not exactly sure how the whole cord blood thing works, but I know and the doctors know that it could potentially save Josiah's life. This family is also going to be in desperate need of your continued prayers.

I would love to just write a check to cover the whole fee myself, but as I shared with you all a few days ago we are in a season right now that is dry financially. But God has placed it on my heart to help this family. As I sat here this morning asking Him to show me what to do...I started to look around my house for stuff to auction. I don't wear jewelry so that's not an option...Then it came to me...How about my David and Sheku bag. It makes perfect sense. A purchase I made to help a cause could be raffled off to help someone else. I think it would put a smile on David and Sheku's face. To know not only did their handmade efforts support their community but another life as well half way around the world!!!!!Goosebumps!

So here's the deal.
a $10.00 donation to help a family will make you eligible to win a David and Sheku original bag.

Make a donation on the Chip in button labeled- help for Josiah/David and Sheku raffle- found on the top right of my blog.
then leave a comment on this post and then on Monday at 6:00pm I will draw a random name.
We only have until Monday to raise the funds for the cord blood. Time is short.
*I should mention the bag is a little off centered in it's sewing-that just makes it even more original* Also-This bag has never been used.
You must leave a comment so I know you donated.
Thank you!!!!

I'm trying to donate, but the chip in button isn't there that I see. Can you tell me where it is on the site. (Even my teen computer sauvy daughter couldn't find it, so I don't feel as stupid.)

I had to donate through paypal to stacy because the button didn't show up on my computer for some reason. Anyway, I'm in for one try - I hope to donate more after I do the yucky finances this weekend.
