Angel Tree Gone Wild!


      I wasn't going to do a Giveaway.  I wasn't going to do one.  I really wasn't.  Seriously.  

I was going to get Yegor over the wall. 

Just Yegor.

But God did this tap tap tapping on my heart and well.... I couldn't leave off Alexei or Emmitt....

So okay.  I wasn't going to do a BIG Giveaway.  I wasn't going to do LOTS of kids.  I wasn't going to include more than just my three boys. I wasn't.  Seriously.

I was aiming for small.

Small.

Simple.

Easy.

Only three.

Okay... only four..

OKAY... only five!!


OKAY OKAY... AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE... SIX....

OKAY.... The ones on the bottom too....

OKAY - ALL OF THEM!!!!

ALL OF THEM!!



Filled with 30 Giveaway gifts totaling well over $2,700.00, and also filled with a whole host of babes who need YOU to SEE them!!  

To enter, you have to do TWO THINGS:

FIRST.... You have to pick at least ONE of my boys (or two, or three, or four, or five, or six) and donate to his/their Angel Tree account(s) on Reece's Rainbow!

  4. Love your heart, Julia! I gave $10 to Yegor, $10 to Weston (lowest on the AT), $5 to Bobby, and $5 to Kolya 15H, for $30 total. I also gave $10 each to the Davis and Godone-Maresca families, as both are rather desperate for funds THIS WEEK. I know these families aren't part of your giveaway, but my heart is heavy for them.

  7. Hello, I don't mean to bother you, but I wanted to make sure my comment went through so you could know who I donated to. I couldn't find a link to just email you. I have a receipt that shows a breakdown of the donation. It was several hours ago so I was hoping there wasn't a problem with my computer sending the info. -Connie Snee
