First, a huge HOORAY GOD!!
See that ChipIn on the right? It reads (for me, though I know it doesn't update in 'real time' very well...) $3,660. Our matching money has officially been MATCHED by an offline donor. In fact, the matching money and two other donations have all together totaled another $4,000 in donations!
Yes, that means that right now the fundraiser is at $7,660! The Dickinsons' airfare is COVERED! Praise God!
The next goal was $1,000 for Masha's Visa, Medical, and Passport, and that is also COVERED!
In calculating airfare, we neglected to include the dynamics of the Dickinsons' specific travel plans. They will be doing the same thing that we did-- Both parents traveling and coming home after court then Meghan and a friend will return and bring Masha home. In this, we have left out about $600 in airfare, so that is another goal we've added, AND ALREADY MET! :)
A new goal has now been set to raise $2,000 for transportation in-country for the Dickinsons. We are only $940 from meeting that goal!!
I believe we will meet that goal too, because we serve a BIG GOD and He has great plans for bringing Masha home :)
Please KEEP SHARING! I noticed that the amount of FB posts has gone down the last few days and there's still almost 2 weeks to go in the Chip In! Don't forget to leave a comment when you post of FB or on your blog! Let's help the Dickinsons bring Masha Home!
