$100 matching grant and update

I have an amazing friend named Kellie who is honoring her soon to be 5 year old son, Reuben, for his birthday. She has offered our boys a $100 matching grant that needs to be met no later than July 7th (Reuben's birthday). 
When we began this match our FSP read 14782 so to meet the match we need it to say
$14,882 It was met and deposited!!!
Happy Birthday little buddy. This year you helped give 2 boys a momma
This is Reuben (on the right) with his brother :)


Remember that for every $5 donated you will be entered to receive one of our giveaway prizes (I will post details below)

$700 worth of prizes still up for grabs!!!

As far as where we are in the process.... 
We only have 2 more things that need to be done before we can receive travel dates to go and bring our sons home. 
We need a government official in their Country to sign our paperwork saying we are ready for court.
Then we need to pass court. 
Once those 2 things happen, we will book our tickets to bring our sons home. 
This generally happens about 4 weeks after court.
We did receive notice yesterday that we "should" be among the next group of docs she is signing.
If we get a signature next week, we expect to travel mid August.
I am a little sad that we will be going in August now instead of July like we originally thought especially since the girls will be back in school by the time the boys get home. We may even miss their first day back :(

We currently only need $3774 to be fully funded.
We need most of this money in the next 2-3 weeks in order to pay for airfare since that is our main expense.

Let's break this down..... After we meet the match, we will need 3633. 
That is 60 people donating $60 each
120 people donating $30 each
240 people donating $15 each
363 people donating $10 each 
or  726 people donating just $5 each

It seems like a lot for one person, but if each person chips in, the amount is sooooo achievable!!!

Remember we are still giving away a $100 gift card or donation to a family adopting 
AND
2 ipad minis or 2 $300 donations to an adopting family

Hotels will be about $1000 (FSP needs to read $15,415)

$5 per entry ...... When we reach this goal, I will draw for $100 gift card or donation to family of your choice.

Airfare for me is going to be about $1700 (FSP needs to read $17,015)

$5 per entry ...... When we reach this goal, I will draw for an ipad mini or $300 donation to a family of your choice!!

Airfare for my hubby is going to be about $1700 (FSP needs to read $18,715)
