Friends in Adoption Announces the 1st Annual SHARE THE LOVE Campaign
**UPDATE Feb 14, 2014**
A big Valentine’s Day hug to all those that have contributed to the 1st Annual FIA Share the Love Campaign. The FIA family continues to grow with the addition of four new families created so far in 2014!
A raffle winner drawn from participants will be announced on April 1st, so there is still time to donate to win a two-night stay at The Toad Hall B & B across from Lake St Catherine State Park, dinner at TAPS for four, a flower arrangement from Everyday Florists and your favorite picture framed from the Frame Shop.
To share in the love kindly follow the instructions below to donate.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air. Let’s share the love with our waiting families. By placing or sponsoring an ad in your local newspaper you are helping to let your community know that we are a local resource and have qualified loving families waiting to adopt through Compassionate Adoption. Newspaper ads are an effective way to make connections between Friends in Adoption (FIA) and expectant moms. Please help the FIA family grow by choosing from the following options. Click HERE to download the reply card (for options 1 & 2).
- FIA will place a classified ad on your behalf. To run an ad in a weekly paper for a month costs as little as $50 in some areas. You choose a family from our website, tell us how much you would like to spend, and FIA will write and place the ad on your behalf. Sample ad: Pregnant? Considering adoption? We care about you. Please call 1-800-982-3678.
- I’m feeling creative! Choose a family from our website and place an ad in your local newspaper. E-mail Dawn a copy of the ad for printing approval, the name of the newspaper it will be placed in, and the time it will be running during the month of March. Sample ad: Abundance of love and kindness for you and your baby. A cozy, safe home filled with opportunities awaits your baby. To learn more, visit: www.friendsinadoption.org/waitingfamilies or call 1-800-982-3678.
- Whether or not you are able to make a donation, please consider participating by posting the family of your choice on your own social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn). Share our families to your social networks as often as you'd like during the month of February. To share, visit: www.friendsinadoption.org/waitingfamilies and select "Read More" for the family you choose. Then select one of the social website icons on the right hand side.
All participants will be entered into a raffle and a winner will be announced on April 1st (no joke!)
THE PRIZE: A two-night stay at The Toad Hall B & B — right across the street from Lake St. Catherine State Park where FIA’s Annual Picnic is held. Dinner at Taps in Poultney for 4, a flower arrangement from Everyday Florists, and your favorite picture framed from The Frame Shop.
