Don't Pack Your Bags...

UPDATE AT 1:00 PM - WINNERS HAVE BEEN PICKED FOR THE GIVEAWAY INSIDE A GIVEAWAY BUT PLEASE KEEP DONATING!!!  We have now raised $44,751.16.


Go HERE to see the winner's list!

What a wild ride this Mulligan Stew Giveaway has been! This was our original idea for the Mulligan Stew:

We knew that cooking alone can leave a lot of poor people lonely and hungry...





But we also knew that if everyone added a little something to the stewpot to create a big Mulligan Stew...



Then we could feed a whole lot of people with a little bit of food.



So we all brought our little offerings....




And we prayed God's blessing over them....



Asking God to multiply our simple gifts....



So that those in desperate need....



would have their fill.



AND GOD HAS.

God has fed so many orphans, families and Lost Boys through our Mulligan Stew that it is going to take weeks to clean up all of the dishes.

He has blessed this Giveaway beyond our wildest dreams.

AND IT ISN'T OVER YET. So please don't pack your bags to go home.



Although, amazingly, we have already reached all of our unspoken goals for the Mulligan Stew orphans and their families....

WE STILL HAVE ONE MORE DAY LEFT IN THIS GIVEAWAY.

It is NOT over.

The needy are STILL being served.



We still have food in the pot.


And two of our orphans are in desperate need of families.

SO WE PRESS ON!

We are not ending early!  We are not closing down shop.  We are not clearing the table.

LAUREL AND HARMONY NEED FAMILIES.

  



They need families NOW.  

The Heim family still needs to raise about $27,000.00.

They gave up their remaining portion of the stew over the last few days so that the rest of the families could get their fill.  We still have one more day to bless the Heims.  

We have Six other babes who NEED FAMILIES too:  Jack. Hanson. Heath. Emmitt.  Igor. Victoria.

And the eight families from Katie's orphanage still need our continued prayers, donations and support.

ONE MORE DAY.

If you donate BEFORE 12:00 noon today, (Virginia time) then you will also be entered to win one of the 26 prizes in our Giveaway Inside a Giveaway (see list below).

  8. Had to wait for payday, but I just donated $50 to the Heim family. With a heart for older children myself (we're bringing home 2 older kids), I am touched to read of others who rush to rescue them. I feel so blessed to be a part of something bigger than myself, so thank you for following God on this one, He has done wondrous works through you!

  9. Hi, I know I had donated a couple of weeks ago but I can't find the comment I left. I know I saw i posted shortly afterwards but now there are so many I can't find it. I know I donated to the Heim family and to Jack (because something about that sweet smile just melts my heart!) I think I also donated to the Burman's and the Sousa-Brown families. This happens alot where I'll enter a contest like this and then forget. My name is Samantha Collins. I just wanted to make sure you received my donations. If I win I do want to use it towards another adopting family but I need to make sure I am entered first! :) I'll keep looking for my comment but if you could let me know if you have my donations that would be great! Thanks!

    2. Thanks so much! I can't wait to see the grand totals for everyone! I wish I had more to give before it ends.
