We may not be able to save every child, but we can respond one at a time. Do not be discouraged by numbers, but instead be encouraged that when we feed, visit, love and clothe an orphan- we did it for Christ. I tell you the truth- whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40

How to purchase raffle tickets:

Every $5 donation you make using the secure PayPal button above will buy you a raffle ticket. The suggested donation is $5 per ticket, but you can donate any amount you choose. Enter as many times as you wish. Each $5 donation buys you one ticket. (You can donate more than once and get one ticket each time, or in one lump. If you donate, say, $30, we will know you want six tickets.) The more tickets you buy, the more times we'll enter your name in the drawing and the more chances you'll have to win the Rebel XS Prize Package!!!

Donating is secure and will be accepted through the PayPal icon at the top of my blog. When you donate via PayPal, you are automatically entered in the raffle to win the Rebel XS Prize Package. Soon after you donate, we will send a reply email to the address on your PayPal account, letting you know what your raffle ticket number(s) are. Then you wait until the Raffle-Raiser is over on May 28th and see if you won!

Are there children within the US that are just as needy as children in Russia? Why not do something for those IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY???
