Midnight chipins and puke

Seems to me the last two 'met goals' for the ChipIn have been when I was sleeping :)  Except right now I'm awake because Brianna just threw up.

Anyway, the goal that was set in the last few days here is MET!  We have had several generous donations, including a large online and a $250 offline contribution made in just the last few hours :)

YAY for exceeding the goal!

Now, here's what God's used the iPad giveaway to cover:
$5600 airfare
$1000 legal fees
$2000 in country transportation
$2100 first trip lodging and food

Our next goal is another $1680 which is the cost of lodging for their second trip.  The ChipIn widget may take a little time to kick in, but the new goal amount is set to $8,055!  Add to that $4,285 of offline contributions... and the new total goal is $12,340.  Just $1,290 to go to reach that goal!  Still six days left.

I just talked to Meghan and she sends a huge THANK YOU to all who have participated through donations and getting the word out to bring Masha HOME!  God is good!


  1. WOW - I am so amazed at the unselfish generosity being displayed here by others. It really boosts a person's faith in humanity. Thank God for the contributions to Masha and her new family.

  2. Awww..... feel better Emma.

    Congratulations on the fundraiser. That's amazing news.

  3. This is outstanding AND I love your new header.
