Liza's First Fundraiser

In order to raise some of the funds for Liza's adoption we have decided to raffle a really beautiful necklace that I received as my anniversary gift this past summer. Rick bought it for me when we went on a small vacation to Solomon's Island, Md and I admired it in a jewelry store on the island, Maertens. If you are ever in their area stop by and see them. They were so helpful to us in researching the necklace to be sure we had accurate information for this raffle. Thanks to all at Maertens!

The necklace itself is sterling silver set with light green jade. The pendant was designed by Balinese designer, Janice Girardi. It is 11 inches total length and the pendant is 3 inches. It truly is a beautiful piece and I'm not just saying that because I want you to bid for it. Even though this was purchased last year it is essentially BRAND NEW. I never wore it, I was waiting for that "special occasion". Well, this is it. Liza's adoption is a special occasion for us.

This is a close up look at the front of the pendant. The metal work is amazing! (the stone is more opaque than this looks)

This is a close up of the back of the pendant. It's beautiful even from the back.

This is the original pouch and box it came in when we purchased it. It will be sent to the winner inside this pouch and box. So, Ladies if you think it might make a nice gift just pass the link to this raffle on to your hubbies ;)

All right, now that we have what it is out of the way, let's move on to the how. Here's how this will work:

  • EVERY $10 donation will get you one entry into the raffle. (So enter as many times as you want)
  • Pass on this link thru a blog, facebook, myspace and then send me a link thru email or a comment and you get a second entry FREE. (You must have donated first to get the second entry free.)
  • The raffle will end on March 31, 2009. So pass the word on and help bring Liza home!

Hi Melissa,

I read on the RR group that you were thinking of adopting two! What a testimony to how God has touched your heart. But to let you know in case you aren't quite ready to commit to two now... the second time around is much easier, especially if you use the same homestudy agency and facilitator. Just wanted to offer you that hope in case you can't bring home two now! Blessings.
