This year we are raffling off TWO VACATION PACKAGES (lodging PLUS lots of fun stuff to do while you are there!) Here are the prizes:

WHERE DO YOUR DONATIONS GO? All proceeds raised in this raffle will be divided 50%-50% between two fantastic charitable organizations- Our Family Adoptions (a humanitarian organization that cares for orphans in the Congo) and Heartline Ministries (touching the lives of vulnerable people in Haiti). Both of these organizations are well established in the areas where they work and are doing amazing things on the ground for the people they serve. Stay tuned for later posts by directors/volunteers from these organizations about the work they are doing and how your dollars will be used. Last year, with your generosity, we were able to raise just over $5,000. This year, we'd love to beat that. We are setting a goal of raising $8,000!
