Want to Win a Free Trip to Ethiopia?! Your Chances are Good!

My wonderful friend Kari Gibson, is giving away a trip. Here are the details? To enter go to Kari’s Crazy Adoption Store.

{My Crazy Adoption Giveaway}

You may have dreamed of going on a missions trip, but raising money, resources, time, and maybe a little fear have kept you from stepping out in faith and living the God dream.  This is YOUR opportunity to travel to Africa and make a difference in the life of an orphan.  I’m jumping for joy for you… I don’t want you to miss out on this incredible opportunity.


The party starts today!!  I am giving away 1 Missions Trip Scholarship to Ethiopia for my trip February 17-26th. YES YES YES you heard me right.  I’m giving away a missions trip!!!!!!!! WHOOOHOOOOO I can hardly stand it!!! God gave me the dream and I’m scared to death (literally my hands are shaking writing this).  Of course, I will need your help and participation to make this dream come true.  My Crazy Adoption needs to sell a minimum of 183 Simply Love tees to scholarship 1 winner to Ethiopia! (value $3,100.00) You have the opportunity starting today to purchase any Simply Love tee – 5 new designs and enter the Missions Trip Giveaway!!!  This craziness has never been done before in blog land!!


1 Simply Love Tee = 1 Entry

You can buy 1, 5, or 20 tees… its ALL up to you!!!!  Enter to win every week until the blitz ends!!  Here’s what’s even more exciting, if you can’t travel to Ethiopia in February, you can buy a tee and enter a family member, a friend, a co-worker… anyone who has been dreaming about going on a missions trip!!!!!!   Also, you can buy a tee just to help us reach the 183 tee goal.  Everyone can be a special part of this Missions Project!!!   In fact, the more tee shirts you purchase, the more orphans you will impact. If we raise above and beyond the missions trip scholarship… I will donate the funds to Project 61 and Visiting Orphans Ministry, who impact orphans living in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Korah Dump. My dream is for My Crazy Adoption Blog and you, the beautiful bloggers to sponsor children off the dump and provide an education!! Project 61 is making dreams come true for so many children, changing lives, and making a difference for eternity.


What do I win exactly?

  • 1 missions trip to Ethiopia with Visiting Orphans
  • Value $3,100.00
  • this includes everything – application payment, airfare, food and accommodations.  The payment for the trip will be made directly to Visiting Orphans Ministry.

(please read official giveaway rules)

If your heart right now is pounding and your hands are sweaty, I want to challenge you to DO IT AFRAID!!!!  I waited 42 years to go on my first missions trip, so I understand about being afraid. If you are afraid, that’s OK… just do it afraid and God will do the rest through you! We are ALL called to simply love. 


To enter this giveaway you must purchase a Simply Love Tee shirt on My Crazy Adoption Store starting 10/6/10 through 10/28/10. 1 entry per shirt… the amount of entries is up to you!! You can enter to win… even if you are already signed up for one of my mission trips in 2011.  You automatically register for the contest when you order a tee shirt- you can also leave me a note on the products page “Personalize your product” box when you check out.  If you are entering someone else to win the trip- if you are the winner, we will work out all the details! (no worries:)

O.K., seriously … all 3 of you above ROCK … Tom, Kari and Amanda.
So, I must go and order myself a shirt and then pray super hard I win. Of course, does it count if I’m already registered for that trip? Must win because at this point, I’m trying to figure out how the Lord is going to raise the funds for that trip and the adoption he called us on (to Ethiopia) the next week after we signed up. Afraid just saying that all out loud. What in the world??!! HAHA.
Passing this forward to my network. Here’s to Kari … dreaming BIG! 5 trips, girl! 5 trips!

This trip sounds awesome, wish I could go. We’ll still be in bible school though, and can’t miss, but I will be eagerly anticipating a wonderful report. I’ll go check out the t-shirts though!
