These precious little legs and feet belong to a 5 year old. She weighs 11 pounds. Yes, that's right...she's a 5 year old girl named Lina who is clinging to life in a foreign country orphanage (the country can't be named).
There is a loving family here in the U.S. who is eager and anxious to adopt Lina, but the red tape is enormous and the expenses are high. Time is of the essence in bringing Lina home to her adoptive family, and they need our help. Please click HERE to learn more about the whole story.
If you are the crafty type, would you please make something to donate to the fundraising auction? It doesn't have to be huge, like a quilt, nor does it have to be super fancy and spectacular. Just something nice and handmade (that someone would buy to give as a Christmas gift) that will be sold at an online auction.
The auction starts on December 1st (sorry for the short notice, but I just found out about it) but you only have to turn in a photo before then. Once the auction is held, Amy (the auction organizer) will notify you of the buyer's address and you'll send your item to the buyer within 48 hours. Easy enough!
I'll be donating a couple of Pillow Packs and a handmade bag.
You could make some Pillow Packs too! Or something else! What a great excuse to neglect your housework for an hour or two, eh?
For more information about the auction, please contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much!
