AUCTION NOW CLOSED!
As many of you know, the Brainerd Family (owners of Homeschool Share) will be adopting a sibling group from Colombia. International adoption can be a long and expensive endeavor. You can read all about it here. While they have been so blessed, humbled and overwhelmed by all that people have done for them, they still have a long way to go. But our Father is faithful, and He has worked many a miracle through His faithful followers. So here is what we are doing:
We are holding an online Adoption Auction (think along the lines of a Chinese Auction) to help bless the Brainerd Family’s Adoption
Endeavors. The auction will be held between Wednesday, October 3rd and Wednesday October 10th. The auction includes over a dozen prizes ranging from homeschool curricula, to homemade specialties, to lovely designer jewelry!
For those not familiar with a Chinese Auction, here is how our Adoption Auction works.
1. Prizes each have an identifying number.
2. You can donate at the Brainerd’s PayPal adoption donation account.
$5 donation = 1 entry
$10 donation = 3 entries
$20 donation = 10 entries
3. Post a comment on the Adoption Auction post telling us:
- PayPal receipt #
- # of entries obtained and where you’d like them entered
So, if you donated for 10 tickets, you’d tell us:
Receipt # ********************
Prize 1 – 4 entries
Prize 7 – 3 entries
Prize 9 – 3 entries
4. The more entries you obtain, the better a chance you have at winning!
5. Strategy is up to you! Some like to put all their tickets in one basket, while others like to spread them around. I’ve seen both ways work!
6. I will close the auction on Wednesday, October 10th at noon eastern time. The entries will be gathered for each prize and the winners will be randomly drawn and announced before 11:00pm Wednesday night.
7. The winners will be notified via e-mail and will need to respond within 24 hours with their names and snail mail addresses. If you don’t respond within 24 hours, you forfeit your prize and a new winner will be drawn.
Ok, have fun! And remember, you only have till
12:00pm Wednesday, October 10th to enter!
