Thank you to each and every person who contributed to our fundraiser auction! Whether you donated an item or service to be auctioned, bid on items (and maybe even won) or whether you shared our story with your friends/family, THANK YOU!  It will take several days to tally final numbers, but the outlook is AMAZING and far beyond what we anticipated going in.  God has blessed us and each of you played a part in that blessing.  PRAISE BE TO GOD!!!

In the coming days, I will update you all with our grand total as well as with a list of all the donors including links to their websites.  PLEASE support these amazing organizations for your holiday shopping and everyday shopping needs!

Here it is...the list you've all been waiting for...the WINNERS! I have only used the username portion of the email addresses in order to prevent unauthorized email solicitations.  Winners will be contacted via email on Sunday, November 4th, with their totals and payment information.  For anyone who didn't win but would still like to make a tax-deductible contribution toward bringing our daughters home, click HERE.

  1. Hi Christy,

    We won the following items at your auction:
    Butterfly Sleeve Tee $19.00
    Kings & Queens shirt $16.00
    Men's NIKE Golf Shirt $14.00

    We received the Butterfly Sleeve Tee and the NIKE Golf shirt, but never received the Kings and Queens shirts. Just wondering if there is any way to find out if they are still coming? Thank you!

    Laura Johnston

    1. Hello Laura! I am so very, very sorry about this!! The woman who was shipping that shirt (and a handful of other items) has been unreachable since November. I have reached out many times via email, telephone, text and even snail mail. I have not received any reply from her. I am honestly concerned about her and her family, as it is not like her to "disappear" for months at a time, but she lives several states away so I can't simply drive over to get the merchandise to ship myself. If you'd like, I can paypal you a refund for the shirt you didn't receive. Again, I'm so very sorry!
