Pauline's "March Mystery" fundraiser

In honor of World Down Syndrome Day (see post below), I will be fundraising for Pauline in Russia and ask if family and friends could generously donate $21 for her grant (tax deductible!).   Isn't she beautiful?  She is an orphan who lives in Russia.  She turns 4 this year, which means her clock is ticking quickly. She will be sent to a mental institution to live out the rest of her life if she doesn't find a family soon.

She currently has NOTHING in her adoption grant, and the cost to adopt from her region is approximately $25k when all is said and done. As you can see, the need is great so she can find her family before it's too late. Let's make her grant grow!!

I will make this a "March Mystery" fundraiser and draw a name from the donors and send a surprise present handpicked by me (aka: I don't know what yet, but hopefully it will be something you like!)  If you could generously donate $21 (in honor of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome) - or any amount, less or more, would be greatly appreciated and I will put your name in the drawing. Once again, your donations are tax-deductible. Please use the Chip-in below that links to Paypal.  Many thanks on behalf of Pauline!
