Raising the roof against child abuse....Really!

The website for our 4th Annual “Build It For The Children” charity home is up and running once again. Last year we managed to raise $182,000 for abused children and a lot of the thanks went to all of you for voting on the home finishes each week as the home was being built! Please help me again this year by going to the website (www.Builditforthechildren.org) for the next 10 weeks and voting on the finishes, cabinetry, countertops, flooring, paint colors, etc. that you would like to see in the home. There will be a new design item to vote on each week.

Please forward this website to your friends and family. When the sponsors see how many people are visiting the website they donate more and higher end products to next years home! You actually raise money for these abused children just by visiting the website and voting! Thanks for your help last year and I hope we can set a new record this year!

That is Wonderful!  Yes, I will definitely share this around ... more of our cities should be involved in this type of thing. Thank you so very much for posting this!

Just stickied it .... that should help.  (trying to not have as many sticky notes, but these can eventually be put into one post with links)

Everything around here is sticky with 8.5 grandchildren; otherwise I am not sure what you mean by “Is the post sticky”. It sounds like what ever it is, it is done!  Thank You!

ROFL!  I'll bet Your house IS Sticky!  LOL
 
As soon as I saw the question, I clicked Sticky Post to hold it toward the front.  We already had so many posts I was holding there, that I did not want to overload it.  However, it will Hopefully gain more attention this way.

Hey, I might have some good news about changing the laws about child abuse.  In April, with the child abuse awareness month, the CA here in NC held a gathering.  Everybody was there, including me and Timothy.  Before that, the CA copied my pictures of TImothy when he was hit.  They sent them and a letter of what happened, and the charges to one of the big wigs in the house of represenatives.  I forgot his name, I think it might have been senator Goforth, but he was there at the gathering.  He saw Timothy and he remembered the pictures asking how he was doing.  He said that it might take a little while, and alot of money, but he said that there should be no reason to let people get away with ANY type of child abuse.  I know even though it might not change overnight to help now, but maybe in the near future.

Wonderful!   Do you mind if I make a separate post for this?  I would like to have someplace to keep This part updated.

Sure, go ahead and use it.  If you can fix it, the name was Senator Bruce Goforth.  I know it might sound strange, but I want to keep talking about what happened, because I feel that unless you tell others, then they will think that it wont happen to them.  Trust me I was the same, and I know that it can happen.

Thanks!  There is now a new post which is "sticky" to keep it where we can see it.  Please keep us updated on Timothy and any changes or updates.  I, for one, am very interesting in seeing the outcomes of All in this situation.

Here is the link to the new post:
