Yesterday, was one of those days.... It started with an update from Lifesong. Eight more applications are in the final steps of being processed which was great news but sadly, there have not been any new donations since November 18th. When you are in the fundraising business that is the LAST thing that you want to hear. I will admit that I was surprised because I had really thought that the PODCAST would spur some excitement. I guess not! I should have been beside myself but the frustration was short lived because Altynai's story, the story of the Kyrgyz 65 and the needs of this fund were shared on a much, much bigger venue yesterday and the response was overwhelming!

Now I just pray that all the excitement and admiration that was harnessed yesterday will be used to either help this fund and the waiting Kyrygz orphans or some other precious yet, to be known child that is in desperate need of a family. So donations or not, I am happy. Of course, I am not going to lie to you, I would be a WHOLE lot happier if the donations started flooding in. The fund desperately needs them. So on that note, today is the last day to participate in the Holiday Auction and just as a reminder, 100% of your bid will go towards Altynai's Fund! If you aren't loving the auction items, don't be discouraged, we have a raffle for a Kindle Fire that will start next week ( assuming people don't defriend me and my frequent updates on Facebook) and as always, donations can be given any time of day or night, right here on this blog. Just click on the DONATE button on the right or in the fundraising section. The link will take you straight to Paypal and Altynai's Fund's account with Lifesong for Orphans. Just like with the auction, all of the donations are tax deductible and 100% of the donation goes to Altynai's Fund. Simply translated, 100% of your contribution goes to an orphan that is very, very loved!!!
