Holiday Gift Card Raffle

Meet the Widners.  Isn't this a beautiful family?

I bet you can't tell, but there's actually something missing from this picture.  Actually, it's a someone that's missing.  This little someone is the daughter they are hoping to add to their family through adoption.  This little girl, this daughter and sister, doesn't even know yet that on this couch is where she belongs...with her family.  She has a place here with this family.  She has a mom, a dad, a sister and a brother.  She has a home.  She has more love than she'll know what to do with.  But she doesn't know it!

I'm inviting you to help this dear family bring their daughter home.  To give this precious girl the chance to know love, acceptance, joy, freedom and, yes, even sibling rivalry.  We've got to help get her home so she can know all of these things and so much more.

The Widners are dear friends of ours and adoption is one of our shared passions.  The Lord led each of our families towards the pursuit of adoption at nearly the exact same time.  In fact, Angela and I are convinced that our husbands had secret conversations that we'll never know about regarding adoption and were probably "on-board" long ago, but wouldn't admit it to either of their wives.  Thankfully, none of that matters now because God's timing is, well, perfect.  You can read more of their journey here.

But what could be greater (especially this time of year when holiday shopping is on everyone's mind) than helping the Widners AND at the same time checking a little holiday shopping off your list!?!?!

That's where this raffle comes in!

Beginning today I am raffling off an assortment of gift cards valued at $200 including:

$50 Target Gift Card
$50 Best Buy Gift Card

$50 Amazon Gift Card

$25 Starbucks Gift Card

$25 Chick-fil-A Gift Card

For every $5.00 you donate you will get one entry into the raffle.  The more entries you purchase the greater your chances of winning these amazing gift cards!  And there's no limit to the number of entries you purchase!

AND to maximize your donation share this raffle on Facebook, Twitter or your own blog to earn an additional entry into the raffle.  That's like a two for one deal!  Just make sure you leave a comment with a link to wherever you choose to post this raffle.

The raffle begins now and ends on Sunday December 15th, 2013 at 7pm Mountain Standard Time.  I will announce the winner that night and get the gift cards shipped off in time for Christmas!

Thank you all and happy raffling!


  1. We donated what we could (wish it could be more). We also shared on our Facebook page and on Twitter. And of course we will be praying for both your families!

    1. Thank you, Kristen! Everything helps and prayer is even more important than any of it, right? ;) You are wonderful!!!

  2. Hi Ashley! We were given some money recently and I left a lil' nest egg to help another, as it was such a selfless gift given unto us in our time of need. I've been waiting and praying over when to use it and I felt a connection to this family. My heart's been capturing by a boy in China and we are praying for him to soon be with a family (we are too young/poor to meet China's requirements). I shared this on Twitter: Hoping to win the Target or Chick-Fil-A card!

  3. Donated $5 and also tweeted from @CatchingUpWKate =) Many blessings to your family!
