This is all I can say right now. I am REALLY at a loss for words. I am just amazed at the generosity people have towards our family.
Aubrey and Katie are two Kayleigh blog followers who have gotten together to design a program where people can donate a small portion and their name will be entered to win awesome giveaway packages. These packages are LOADED with awesome items for everyone to take part in. They figured out that you can not purchase a raffle ticket because it is not legal and is considered gambling if the money does not go to a non-profit organization, so Aubrey and Katie set it up to where the donations would be sent to our family to help us get back on our feet. God Bless them!
Even though I am in the final stages of starting my new position with an awesome Christian company, we are still unfortunately facing our financial battles in this horrible market. Our foreclosure date is set and saving the house would be a very bad move as the house has lost so much value in the past year. We could possibly not have a home for Kayleigh when she is ready to come home, which is so sad because we worked so hard on her room. Aubrey's hard work to design this donation program could be the blessing we have been praying for.
Aubrey wanted to share with everyone some of the incredible details, so here is her post:
Hello to all of you faithful Freeman family followers, as well as those of you just hopping along for the ride. We have been very blessed by a handful of talented and generous artists and business owners, and we'd like to 'pay it forward' to the Freeman family.
In ONE short week (March 3rd), we will have a special blog set up solely for donation purposes for the Freeman family. So far, there are over fifteen wonderful giveaways with one of the prize packages being a week long FREE vacation stay at an Ocean-Front Beach Condo in Garden City Beach, South Carolina - just south of Myrtle Beach (est. cost is over $1,000) Woo hoo!!! (If you want to donate an item to be raffled off, please contact Aubrey at: PrayingForKayleigh@live.com)
Entries for the program will be a $10 donation with the opportunity to gain extra entries by multiple donations or referring all of your wonderful friends. At the end of the program period (three weeks later), we will use a random online number generator program to pick the lucky winner for each giveaway. More details on all of that will follow shortly!
We'll let you all know what the blog address is on Tuesday, March 3rd so stay tuned to Kayleigh’s blog for that address. Please let's build a buzz for this program by sharing this opportunity with your friends, family, small groups, church family, co-workers, fellow prayer warriors, and any others you'd like to lead to Kayleigh...and to Christ.
We're so excited for this opportunity to help the Freeman family. Thank you in advance not only to our awesome artistic and business contributors as well as YOU for deciding to help the Freemans in any small way that you can.
'Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their...poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints. And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves for the Lord and then to us in keeping with God's will. But just as you excel in everything-in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us-see that you also excel in this grace of giving.' 2 Corinthians 8: 2-7
Thank you so much Aubrey and Katie for everything you are doing! This is amazing and going to be fun!!!
Wow! Thank you Lord!
God Bless EVERYONE!!!
