Puzzle Piece Fundraiser

We are beginning our "Puzzle Piece" fundraiser!

Here's how it works:
We have had two 500-piece photo puzzles custom made using our first referral pictures of our kids.  We will be "selling" pieces for $20 each.  For each piece that someone buys, we will write the donor's name on the back of that piece.  The donor's name will be on 1 piece or 50 pieces depending on how many they "buy".  After all the pieces are sold and the puzzles are completed, we will have them framed between two pieces of glass so that the names on the back are visible.  We are doing one for our son and one for our daughter so they each will have one to keep for the rest of their lives.

We chose $20 because just about anyone can find $20 to give - from a kid to a college student to a senior adult.  Many may want to purchase more, and we certainly hope that those who can do that, will.  We honestly feel that God wants as many as possible to be involved in rescuing orphans, and $20 makes it possible for just about everyone to be a part of something amazing.  (Literally "rescuing" orphans!)

One THOUSAND pieces is a lot to sell... and we absolutely cannot do it alone.  Please, please, PLEASE share this with everyone you can.  Please post it on FB, e-mail it to all your friends, share it with others at your church - ANY way that you can publicize this would be appreciated more than you can know.  We really need to sell all of them, because that would be $20,000 for our adoption!  (And we desperately need it!) 

To help us, you can click the "Donate" button below or the one on the sidebar and enter your donation amount to pay through PayPal.  If you would rather send a check or make your donation in some other way, please e-mail me at giftsfromafar@att.net

THANKS so much!


Below is a distorted picture of what the puzzles look like - we can't show the actual puzzle yet because it is  a photo of the kids with a Bible verse at the bottom.

can you let me know where you created these puzzles at? My husband and I are adopting and want to do a puzzle fundraiser, but I can not find anywhere to do the custom puzzles. Thanks!
