CHRISTMAS FRENZY


Christmas Frenzy is for EVERYONE!!!
You will fit in one of two categories....
1. Fundraising family
OR
2. Supporting family :)

Okay...here's how it works. All of us LOVE to give Christmas gifts EVEN when times are financially tough. Having just finished the fundraising journey, I keep thinking how can we help other families?!?! Soooo, here's my idea.

FUNDRAISING FAMILIES:
~You must be in the process of adopting or recently home. You must be using the funds from your items to directly fund your adoption costs.!
~You are selling an item to help raise funds to bring your child home. (no raffles, please...it's okay if you are currently running a raffle BUT you MUST be selling fundraising items too, like shirts, etc...that is what you need to be linking to)
~If someone is giving your family part of the proceeds for items, like Scentsy, jewelry, THAT WORKS, TOO :)
~You need to post on your blog and/or facebook about our Christmas Frenzy and link back to my blog. This is CRUCIAL...the more awareness we raise the more supporting families we will have.
~Please make sure you create a NEW blog post regarding the Christmas Frenzy...don't link to an old post. BUT don't forget to highlight what YOU are SELLING in that post :)
~I would love for you to become a follower of my blog...just cause I wanna know who my friends are :)
~Add your blog LINK to the BELOW Linky tool (at the bottom of this post)
~Fun idea for fundraising families...you guys can swap items and then have some fabulous items to do a raffle.


SUPPORTING FAMILIES:
~Make your Christmas list and try to support as many families as you can by purchasing their fundraising items as gift. (click on the below links to see the families)
~Please help spread the word for these families!!! Blog, facebook, tweet, and link back to my blog!!!

Thank you so much for doing this again this year!!!!! We have several fundraisers on our blog but one of them with Chickie Crafts is a double duty - for a couple more weeks they are giving us 50% of the sales from our page PLUS it is supporting their own adoption!! Love it!!!

How do I get the button??? I had it last year but cannot figure it out to save me now! Thanks!! And, I'll post all on my blog and Facebook!!

Dreams of Grace said...

I ended up putting two links on here - hope that's okay. Reason is the Chickie Crafts is a temporary one for us and then our blog which offers other products. Thank you again for doing this!!!

Love, love, LOVE!!
Thank you for this, so excited!

MrsKristinClark said...

uh oh .... I did it wrong! HA!
Can you remove my first one? It links to the exact blog post about Christmas Frenzy and not the actual shop site. Whoops! Sorry to be the problematic newbie!!
And for our adoption blog, that is clarkpeapod.blogspot.com!!

Dreams of Grace said...

Hey there!!! You didn't delete one of my links, it was one of Kristin's but I think it might be okay because I don't think she meant to put both in as Chickie Crafts so ???? I think we're ok, maybe. THANK YOU!!!

I did my best to create a link back to your blog and the Christmas Frenzy page. I think I need to take a class on blogging. Anyways, you can view my blog at www.loxahatcheesmiths.blogspot.com
Thanks for creating this page!

Staci,

I wanted to share this on my blog but I do not know how to grab the button. I have grabbed other buttons but this one is evading me.
