Hi, While we wait to bring home our new daughter, I thought I might try to raise some money to help another family adopt. There is a thing called the Blogathon. It takes place for 24 hours July 29-30. I want to raise grant money for Love with out Boundaries program Tuan Yuan adoption grant. This program offers a $3,000 grant to a waiting child whose file is about to be returned. The hope is the extra money will help generate more interest in the child...and help a family move forward with the adoption. Anyway, if I blog for 24 hours (I need to post on my blog every 30 mins for 24 hours) my sponsors pay money to the Tuan Yuan fund. I figure I need 120 people to sponsor me for just $1 per hour pulse give an extra $1 (a $25 total) and we could raise the money for one grant. I don't have any interest in bloging for 24 hours if I can not find sponsors. By the way, all money goes directly to LWB, I don't get it, and I don't want it. I am posting this letter to see if anyone would be interested in sponsoring me. If I get good feedback, I will go ahead and blog! I also want to say, sponsors are not required to read my blog...that is optional.
