Remember how I told you about one mother way too close to home that is fighting for her life.
The raffle I just didn’t know if was for a prize I really cared about. Forgetting all about the actual reason for the raffle.
She is a local mother in my community. She was diagnosed with leukemia two years ago and needs a bone marrow transplant. She can’t get on the list without the $10,000 it costs to “find” a donor. She doesn’t have $10,000.
Neither do a million of us. But that’s the difference between getting on the list (of possible donors) and not.
Today we are buying a birthday gift for Jesus by purchasing raffle tickets for $1.
And I had to think about if I wanted the prize.
Do you want to buy a birthday gift for Jesus? You can get tickets through Nancy Funk nfunk (@) charter (dot) net or you can e-mail me directly and I can get you your raffle tickets. But don’t wait because the raffle is taking place Saturday December 15th, with a cut-off date for money collection of 12/13/12.
100% of the proceeds will go to the Sharyreen Dietrich’s Medical Fund.
What is the raffle for you ask too?
Olde West Gun has donated a new Ruger LC9 Centerfire Pistol Model #3212. Again the tickets cost $1.
It’s OK if this birthday gift to Jesus doesn’t feel like the perfect gift. Just join us in trying to find something for Him this season.
And keep e-mailing me those ideas. I love them. You guys are awesome and I can’t wait to share.
