BENEFITING: PROJECT CUDDLE INC
For nearly 5 years we have been trying to bring another baby into this world, to become a member of the Jelin family, and to raise another brilliant and wonderful child like our daughter Lacie, as a Jelin. Over the last several years we have been hit by infertility, and then tragedy when our pregnancies failed. We have finally been matched with a wonderful birthmom who has selected us to become the forever family for her unborn child.
The expenses associated with private adoptions are immense, and now that we are matched with a birthmom, medical, living, and daily cost of living expenses are growing.
A wonderful non-profit organization called Project Cuddle brought us together with a birthmother, and they are paying up front for her expenses, but their available funds will certainly be significantly depleted, after paying for the doctor, hospital, hotel, and travel expenses. We are trying to raise funds to replenish Project Cuddle's funds as they help us, so that they can continue with their mission of reducing baby abandonment and saving babies.
We are donating, as well as our families, friends, and hopefully you to our fundraiser. Project Cuddle will receive your tax deductible funds into their incredible non-profit organization's CrowdRise account (www.projectcuddle.com) through this fundraiser, and they will then use those funds to pay what they can toward the expenses for this birthmother, known (for privacy reasons) as "Birthmom B" and her baby "Baby B."
Because Project Cuddle is entirely supported by donations, individual donations, corporate donations, fundraisers, and other generous people keep Project Cuddle going...saving babies every day. Just this past 2 weeks, they have helped 3 pregnant girls/women who were in crisis.
Our birthmom's predicted delivery date was between July 13 and July 18, and the baby is not yet born We don't know if the baby is a boy or a girl... so the surprise will be really exciting. We can't wait to update this Crowdrise site with a picture of our beautiful baby.
All donations raised will be used to support Project Cuddle and offset their expenses, not just for the birthmother we have been matched with, but others as well in the future... All donations are tax deductible. Their Federal Employee Identification Number 33-0486176, and when you donate, you will get an email confirmation for tax purposes.
This is not a fundraiser for the Jelins specifically,but that should not dissuade you. They don't specifically keep separate accounts for each birthmother...they have their money collected through donation, and they pay necessary expenses from it, such as the expenses for Birthmother B and Baby B.
NO money will be given or kept by us at all. We are trying to raise funds to help Project Cuddle continue their life saving goal... to try to help pregnant women keep their babies...but if they cannot, Project Cuddle works closely with the women to help bring forever families and pregnant women together, with the goal of saving babies and preventing baby abandonment.
Please donate what you can, spread the word to your friends and family. Please know that if we can spread the word and 200 people share with 200 others, and so on... pretty soon thousands will see this. If people who see this donate to this fundraiser, very quickly a lot of money will be raised, and not only will the birthmother that Project Cuddle is supporting/helping for the baby we will adopt, but people will know that their donation will aid to continue to help bringing babies safely into this world with the help of the wonderful people at Project Cuddle.
Thank you for your thought, generousity, and consideration.
