Did someone say GIVEAWAY????

Hello, Sweet Friends!

I'm checking in this morning to tell you about a family that my friend Amie is trying to help out by having a bloggy makeover giveaway!!!! (How COOL is THAT???)

See, she has a friend named Linn (The Saunder Family) who is the Mom in a family of 12 that just lost EVERYTHING in a house fire.

Now there is a campaign that has been started to help get this family on "Extreme Home Makeover" and you can read more about it HERE. The address for this blog is, "Love Builds A House," how ADORABLE and fitting is that? (Of course it's or you can just click on the link in this paragraph) This blog has been set up for the quest that has begun to get their home rebuilt. If you have a moment hop around these links and get to know this sweet family.

I've added a button on my sidebar and we'd love for you to "grab it" if you'd like to do a post of your own about this family, or even better, add it to YOUR sidebar! (If you do, be sure to hop over to Amie's and leave a comment letting her know about it so that you'll be entered for the FREE BLOGGY Makeover!)

Thanks again, Amie for doing your part to get this campaign up and running! I'd never met this family before yesterday and I've already fallen in love with them. =-)

Now, I'd like to thank YOU, my Precious Friends, for being so pro-active yourselves!Image hosting by TinyPic Doesn't it feel GREAT to help someone in need? Especially when all we have to do is go and leave a comment on the Extreme Home Makeover Blog! See, there's this REALLY LONG application you have to fill out to get them "officially nominated"... not to worry, the HARD part has already been done... all we have to do is leave a comment "encouraging" them to consider the Saunder family. (I know about the app because I downloaded it to nominate my friends from Habitat for Hope and BELIEVE ME... it's a LOT of paperwork! Well, at least for someone with ADHD like myself... HA!!

Alrighty friends... that's it for me today! I hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks again for getting involved!

Thanks so much for the button for the Saunders family. I had been hoping to find one. I have been praying and will continue to pray.

you're awesome! I don't know them, but I will go over and check it out. I can't even imagine a family of 12 loosing their home. Sounds like they really need this! I love that show! It's always so amazing, the stories of the families involved are always so touching and always make me cry!

Thanks for sharing the info on this precious family. Looking forward to giving their blog a closer look over the weekend to see how I can help. Meanwhile, I'm definitely keeping them in prayer...
