Do you want a MacBook Air?




Like this one?


We'd like to give one to you!!  To be exact, an 11 inch, brand new, shipped to your house MacBook Air, valued at $999.


We're on the last "push" for funding for Peter to come home, and to help achieve that awesome "fully funded" status, we've been given the opportunity to have a little fun!

We'd like to invite you to join us in having some fun! 

You see, we've got an amazing room coming together for our little boy to come home to.  It's full of toys, stuffed animals, and other goodies from friends and family.....but it's lacking a bit of decoration on the walls.

This is where you guys come in.

We've got an amazing, 550-piece puzzle that is going to be put together and framed to hang on Peter's wall.  It's a tribute to the organization that helped him find us.....and is helping us bring him home.   What organization might that be?   Well....Reece's Rainbow, of course!


The puzzle is an 18.5 x 14.9 representation of one of the beautiful logos for our favourite non-profit adoption advocacy group.    This one, to be exact:


Reece's Rainbow DID make a difference to this one little boy.  Our little boy.  Now it's your turn to do the same!


Here are the "official giveaway rules":

There are multiple ways to make sure that you are eligible for the MacBook Air.   To participate in the giveaway, you MUST do one of the following:


- Share this blog post via social media of some sort (email, Twitter, Facebook, etc).   Sharing the blog post will get you one entry into the giveaway.  Sharing the blog, however, does NOT earn a puzzle piece.  

- Make a donation to our personal (not tax deductible) Paypal account.   Each donation of $10 will earn a puzzle piece, and one entry into the giveaway.  The link can be found to the right of our blog.

- Make a donation into our Reece's Rainbow grant (tax deductible).   Each donation of $10 will earn a puzzle piece, and one entry into the giveaway.  The link can be found to the right of our blog.

After doing one of the above:

Comment on this blog.   Commenting on this blog post is the ONLY way to ensure that you will be part of the giveaway.   Tagging one of us on Facebook, or sending a random message to me is not ensuring your place in the giveaway.    It is very hard to keep track of all of the shares or donations without one, central list of supporters.    We need your help to make sure that no one is accidentally left out - so once you share or donate, come back HERE and leave a comment letting us know that you did.   


Once all of the puzzle pieces have been earned, the MacBook will be given to one of you, as a way of showing our thanks!    There is no end time limit to this giveaway - it all depends on how quickly those puzzle pieces are earned.  Once all 550 of them are gone....the MacBook Air will be on its way to someone out there.    The sooner that the word gets out about our giveaway and the sooner that those puzzle pieces are accounted for.....the sooner that the MacBook Air could be on its way to YOU!    Motivated yet to get the word out?

Not quite?  How about this little piece of info:   By the end of this giveaway, as the MacBook is on its way to its new owner, we'll only be about $1000 from that coveted full-funded status.   That's it.   Helping make this giveaway a success will do more than just send a computer on its way to someone.....it'll mean that as soon as we get our travel dates from Peter's country, we will be able to go. Finances will not be a stumbling block in getting our little boy home to his brand-new bedroom with his awesome, brand-new wall art!  


So let's get going on the fun!  Help us bring our little guy home!  Help us give YOU a MacBook Air as a way of saying "thank you" for joining us on our journey to bring Peter home!

  19. Dear Heidi and Michael, I have been following your journey for quite some time praying for your needs to be exceeded so that you could bring your little one home sooner than later. I will continue to pray and if possible, I will donate again.. Sam has been out of work since January but I felt compelled to help push this forward so that you will reach your goal. I posted to my FB page, My business page (www.phoenixembroideryofmaine.com) I donated to you personally and then to Reeces Rainbow. I hope this helps.. much love to you both and to those 3 big brothers in waiting.. http://www.facebook.com/stitchhappy

  51. Here we are again and I am praying that in a very short time Peter will be coming home to your loving family. God has surely guided your steps in this journey... this is one lucky little boy ...

    (The Mac book is sure an added incentive to participate and since my laptop is on it's last legs, I am excited at having the opportunity to win... )

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thought I would try and kick off the August donation spree!! Hope that puzzle comes together soon!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. The Czerkes family is working to bring a little boy home as their adopted son. Unfortunately, these things cost a lot of money and they have done much to make this happen. They are so close to their goal ... won't you dig into your pockets and make a donation however small? It adds up when we work together. There is no finer thing you can do than to come to the aid of a little child in need.

    Just when I think I can no longer help those who can't help themselves, the Lord finds a way for me to help. I will always be grateful that together we can do anything and without government intervention.. I just bought 2 puzzle pieces and am getting excited to see Mike and Heidi complete that last piece. Won't you dig in and come up with a few dollars so they can bring this precious little one home? Thank you Lord for my blessings.. for they are many ...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Once again I am blessed to be able to make a small contribution to the Czerkes family to bring their baby boy home. I would encourage to share their story and get the word out so they can complete the puzzle and their family. Only one puzzle piece today but that's one more than yesterday... Much love and prayer headed your way for success..

  57. Put me in for two more puzzle pieces.. I'm always excited to be able to bump that number up even if it is just a little. Heidi and Mike, you have had a lot going on these past couple of months and I'm very excited that you will be back in Maine and that Peter will come home to Maine... I'm sharing on my FB page and I have a special page up for you on my business web site.. I'm hoping that it will inspire someone, somewhere to donate and help bring Peter home.

  58. What wonderful and generous friends you have! What a blessing for a matching grant to be fully funded! We are also adopting from China, two little girls with DS. We also have two little boys with DS that we adopted from UA in 2009 through RR. I just donated $20 to your Reece's Rainbow Grant fund and now it can become $40! What a blessing! Hoping I can win the MacBook to use for my own fundraiser :-)!!!!

    Many Blessings,
