Win a bracelet for $1.00 ~ Help buy a cow...

I have been following this young man's story ever since my sister and her family met him. His name is Adier, and he is from Sudan. You may have heard of his story as he is one of the "Lost boys" that fled from the genocide there in Sudan. After many trials and near-death experiences, Adier survived, and came to America as a refugee. He became a Christian, and loves the Lord. He is now 24, and would like to be married to his long love, Monica, from Sudan, and bring her here. His problem is he does not have enough money for her dowry, which is paid in cows. We are trying to help him meet his deadline. It is March 15th. I am donating this piece of jewelry to raffle off so we can have a small part in helping him raise the funds he needs. If you would like to take part, you can click the link below for as little as 1.00 to be entered in the raffle one time. You will have as many chances to win as you pay in dollars. Drawing will be held on Feb.1st. Please help us help Adier. After March 15th, it will be too late. We can't let that happen.
Here's the details on the bracelet. It is a sterling silver puffed heart charm bracelet, with custom made black/white/green polka dot lamp beads. It also has small swarovski crystals. The reverse side tells Adier's story. First, he found faith. Second, he found his True Love. Thirdly, he has hope he will marry her. Lastly, he hopes to find his Joy, and we hope to help him.

Since we are so close to Valentine's Day, please consider this as a token of your love to the one you are freely priveledged to be with.
Our goal is to raise enough money for one cow ($250.00). We will name her "Elle." (There will still be a winner whether we make the goal or not.)

Thank you!


Thank you so much! I will keep you posted, and let you know how it's going!!

Me and Jeremy watched a documentary on the Sudanese refugees called "God grew tired of us" if anyone hasn't seen this you should (we got it from Netflix). It will break your heart and remind you to pray for the Sudanese Christians. They are very sweet people who are being horribly persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ. I hope you raise the money for the cow!!!
