Car Wash Fundraiser A Success

We were able to have our car wash fundraiser yesterday and it was a HUGE success in so many ways! First we realized that we have a lot of people who are willing to support us. A friend of mine taught me that all you have to do is ask for help. I've heard that before. Apparently I am just a slow learner. I'm also not good at asking for help. Lesson learned. Next time I'll have to remember to ask for help before I have a meltdown :)

Saturday really was amazing. There were so many people there to help us with the car wash. I'm not sure we will really be able to thank everyone enough for coming out and spending part of their Saturday washing cars and holding signs for the car wash. Everyone really was amazing! Thank you! We really could not have done it with out all of you!

On another note we really did well. There were a lot of people who showed up to get their cars washed. Which is obviously a good thing. We also got some donations from people stopped at a red light who just handed us donations without stopping by to have their cars washed. Can you believe that?

We were very fortunate to have great help and to earn money to go towards bringing Milana home. It is so exciting to think that we are getting closer - little by little - to being able to bring our little girl home to us. We still have a long way to go to reach our goal, but every little bit helps.  We are looking forward to the day that we get to bring her home!


  1. PRAISE THE LORD!!! Isn't it amazing how much people will help when asked?? (I'm a slow learner too!) :)

  2. Keep on asking. Every step brings Milana closer and closer to being home with her new family!!! Glad this was such a success and just the "lift" you needed.
