Puzzle Fundraiser

Since adoption can cost anywhere from 25,000 to 50,000 dollars, we decided to do a puzzle fundraiser.  I found this fundraising idea on pinterest and the search began to find the right puzzle.  I stumbled across this website were you could design your own puzzle.  I was happy I found this website. I couldn't find the right puzzle for this special occasion.  I wanted something our child could have to symbolize how we felt about the adoption process and especially them.  I found this saying on pinterest and knew it was the perfect fit.  
This fundraiser is your chance to be a physical and symbolic piece of our adoption puzzle. Each puzzle piece is $10. If we sell all 500 pieces, we will raise $5000.  If someone donates $20 to our Puzzle Fundraiser; we would take 2 pieces of our puzzle and write the name of that person/family on the back of each piece.  This person/family will visibly become a piece(s) of our puzzle! You can also buy pieces in memory/honor of somebody if you would like. Once all the pieces are sold, we will put the puzzle together in a double glass frame and hang it in the nursery.  
Now’s your chance to become a piece of the puzzle! 

Checks should be payable to ―Lifesong for Orphans. In the memo, note Lushington/4166 to assure it goes to the correct account. Please mail to:
Lifesong for Orphans
PO Box 40
Gridley, IL 61744.
I don’t have a paypal button because they charge an administrative fee (2.9% + $.30 USD per transaction).  But if it is easier for people to donate this way I will add it to the blog.  Please make sure to let me know how many pieces you would like to purchase.

Please continue to pray for us and Thanks again for your help!!!
