Great new ideas!

We had our first Board of Directors meeting last night and here are two great new ideas we came up with:

Raffle of the month:

We have decided to start a "Raffle of the month" to raise money for our continued efforts to help the orphans in Kazakhstan. Each month we will pick a fun item and raffle it right here. We had dad in mind for our first item and will be raffling off a $100 gift certificate to Bass Pro Shops ( if you don't have a Bass Pro near you, they can use the gift card online at Father's Day will be here before you know it! What a perfect way to say "I love you dad" while helping the children of Kazakshtan.

To purchase a raffle ticket use the Paypal link on our sidebar to the left. Tickets will be $5 for 1 entry and you have until June 9th to purchase. There is no limit to the amount of tickets you can purchase. The drawing will be held on June 10th and we will overnight the gift certificate. Once we receive your donation we will send you a confirmation.

Are you traveling to Kazakhstan soon?

Would you like to take a box of donations with you? Two Hearts would like to supply you with a box of new and gently used items to donate to your child's baby home. As you get closer to traveling you will be in whirlwind as you try to pack everything you need. Let us relieve some of your burden so you have one less thing to think about. Please let us know if you would like a box and we will fill it with great items for the children left behind. What a great way to save on adoption costs!

Thank you:

A very special thank you to Lisa Marcacci and her church family in California for the beautiful hand knit hats. We received 116 of these gorgeous hats in the mail last week and we are so excited for the children. What a great blessing these hats will be to them.

I am having pay pal issues. hoping to have this resolved soon.

my boys each have to put money from their allowance toward charity. my 6 year old has decided that he wants to go purchase items for two hearts. so we are off to do that this afternoon.

my older son says he will chose two hearts next because he wants to give to the world food programe this time since he knows that his brother is giving here.
