Help needed, please...And a little thank you giveaway!

Pin It     My husband has a good friend. They've known each other for years. He has a beautiful family with a wife and three handsome munchkins. But now they decided to do something that amazes and inspires me. They are adopting a little girl from Russia whose physical disabilities will more than likely not allow her any quality life back at home.


  They are so wonderful!! Those of you who ever went through an adoption process or know somebody who did, know how expensive it can be. They already paid tons of money, and in the last year they've been saving half of their salary to be able to pay for all the upcoming fees. Unfortunately, they still don't have the necessary amount and time is running short. Actually, they need to be in Russia in 11 days. And they still need a little more than $2000.

   Lots of people donated to help them out but it's still not enough. I ask you to please visit their website at Ready and Waiting to read their story and consider making a donation. Every little bit helps!

   To thank you for your help I want to have a little giveaway here. One lucky reader will win 1 hardcover book "Crock-Pot Best-Loved Slow Cooker Recipes" with more than 190 tasty recipes for your slow cooker. It's perfect for a cooler season and will be useful in your own kitchen or will make a great holiday gift:


Look at all these scrumptious recipes like Wild Rice and Mushroom Casserole:


 Or this Bananas Foster:



   You don't have to donate to enter the giveaway but I really encourage you to help out. Even $5 can help a lot! And you will get 3 extra entries for a donation ( just mention it in the comments). Also for an extra entry tell me which slow cooker recipe is your favorite.This giveaway will be opened until Sun Oct. 21st and I will announce a winner the Monday after.

Thank you for your help! We really appreciate it!!
