Who doesn't like to win something?

While we're waiting, I thought we'd have a little fun.  But first a little background info...

Reece's Rainbow's Family Sponsorship Program (FSP) allows others to donate toward bringing home orphans like our Little Dude.  Since RR is a 501(c)3 organization, donors may claim these gifts on their taxes.

Since our commitment to our Little Dude in October, $1902 has been given to our FSP.  An additional $270 was placed in his account prior to our commitment by those hoping his family would find him.

So here's where the fun comes in...
Over the past two weeks I've been working on a shawl to give away.  On Easter (April 8) we'll draw a name.

Anyone who makes a donation of any size  to our FSP is eligible.  If you donated prior to this little contest, not to worry... I'll throw your name in the hat too   :o)
You'll get two (2) entries into this giveaway for donating to our FSP.

There is also a way to enter without donating... or to increase your chances by doing this also!
Here are your choices:
       1.  Share our Just Love Coffee fundraiser on your Facebook page.
       2.  Share our Adoption Bug fundraiser on your Facebook page.
       3.  Share a Reece's Rainbow Waiting Child on your Facebook page.
       Do all three for 3 more chances!  So donate, share, share, and share for a total of 5 entries into this giveaway.

Here are a few specs about the shawl:
The pattern is called 'Summer Flies'  and has sections of butterflies, lace openwork, and a picot edge.
It's made from a bamboo blend, so it will be good for even warm climates.
Measurements are 42 inches from tip-to-tip and 17 inches deep.
The color is "Misty Taupe" and the photo below is a more accurate portrayal of it's true color.

Here's a photo to give you an idea of size.
(It's just the right size for over your shoulders in an airconditioned church or office.)

Once you've made a donation to our FSP or shared on Facebook, leave me a comment below or an email at stating what you've done (ie. donated, shared, etc.) so I can add your name to the drawing. 

Fine Print (there's always  fine print)...
Immediate family members aren't included in this drawing.  Thanks for your donations and sharing, but you know I'll knit for you anytime.  You must sit this one out.

Oh, did I mention that I like this shawl so much that I'm making one for myself in the exact same yarn?
