Building A Home For Olga

I've stole yet another blog . This time from Jenn, Olga's mama. Love this fund raiser idea. Read on to see how simple this is. Olga needs to get out of Dodge and home to her family! And by helping Miss Olga you will also be helping Renee to get her Miss Paisely home. These two amazing and beautiful moms are helping each other. I don't know how many times Renee has stopped to help others even though she is also trying to raise funds to bring Paisely home. And I don't think Jenn has ever written a post and not advocated for another child too. They are both amazing and selfless people who so deserve our help and support. The following is Jenn's post.

**Building A Home For Olga*

We have seen many "puzzle" fundraisers and liked the concept but didn't want to do the same old thing. We came across the idea of doing a Lego fundraiser instead. So we started looking for just the right Lego set and then we found this one. I love that it's in a pink box and it's perfect for our sweet little girl.

We are going to be building a home for Olga. Just like building a real house takes the work of many people, so will this. We need your help to build her a home. Look at this sweet home, and it has two little girls. I like to think of it being Olga and one of her sisters, and oh did you see the little dog. I know Olga would love it, don't you. She deserves a home, doesn't she.

This is how it works :

We are asking for a $1 donation per a Lego brick. Just $1. Just about everyone can scrape together a dollar, in the car ashtray, in the couch cushions, bottom of your purse, in the junk drawer. You can donate here to our FSP and it's also tax deductible. Can you spare just a dollar to buy a brick for and help us build a home for Olga? We will take pictures of it through out the process and will be adding a page to her scrapbook with a picture of the finished house and a list of names of everyone who helped build her home. This home will set on her dresser in her room. Just donate, then leave a message with your name, how many bricks you bought, and your blog address if you have one.

So how many bricks will you buy today?

I have a sweet friend who has the biggest heart in the world. Her name is Renee Tam. Renee is working on raising the funds to bring her daughter Paisley home, and she is also working to help raise funds for another sweet lady Vashti. Renee has been such an encouragement to me and my family, she has helped me through some hard times with this adoption. I want to be a blessing to her as well. So for every $5 donated to Building a Home for Olga, we will donate $2 to Renee's fund. So when you buy a brick for Olga's home you are actually helping 2 orphans to come home and have a chance to grow just like Max, Ivanna, and Sophie.

Please, Please, Please blog, facebook, twitter, email about our Lego fundraiser. We truly do need your help spreading the word about it. Thank you!!

Every child deserves to feel the love of a family!

Hugs & Prayers

What a great idea for fundraising! (I've always thought how easy it would be for others to donate at least $1-$5, and then spread the word....before you know it, they could be fully funded!) I'm heading right over to their blog right now, and I will be praying for these families! Hugs!
