As we begin the month of August, the realization that summer is coming to an end begins to set in.  The end of summer can bring a mix of feelings depending on who you are, how old you are, and what phase of life you are in.  You might have feelings of joy, anxiety, excitement, or a mixture of all these. If you are like me (Matt) when I was younger and about to start school again it was a feeling of nausea as I did not like school.  But if you are like some of my children you are counting down the days to begin a new chapter. 

Well, no matter what you might be feeling we thought that giving away a $50 gift card to Amazon would be a great way to ensure that you are feeling happy, just like that Pharrell Williams song says.

This giveaway will be running the entire month of August and here is how it is going to work.

For those of you who are not recurring donors, all you have to do is sing up to give $10/month.  100% of your donation will go to help adopting families and the projects that are on our site.  You can sign up here.

Many of you are already one of our recurring donors and we are so grateful for that.  We would like to give you a chance to win the $50 gift card to Amazon as well.  For every person you recruit to be a new $10 donor, you will receive one entry.  For example; if you recruit two new people to sign up to give $10 a month you will receive 2 entries and each of your friends will receive 1.  Just keep track and send an email ( of those you have recruited by August 31.
