Frank's Freedom

Meet Frank. He’s 13 years old, and is curious, busy, fun happy and bright. He has a mental delay, but that doesn’t stop him from being friendly, engaging and kind. He’s also an orphan in Eastern Europe. This means he is in an institution. If he is not adopted by age 16, he will be thrown out on the street with nothing but the clothes on his back and his “disabled orphan” status. Let me tell you more about Frank.

He’s little, about the size of a 7 year old. And he’s smart. He is in a group with teenage boys ages 16-24. He does puzzles and he does his chores diligently. He is very kind to the younger children. Frank is friendly and engaging. He likes being with the boys, but is happy being alone too. He plays appropriately with toys and is “all boy”. He could very easily function in a family. Frank is curious, smart, fun and sweet. He likes to play in the dirt and jump on the trampoline. Frank is independent, a good eater, is happy and content. Frank is physically healthy. He walks, runs, feeds himself, speaks, does puzzles and interacts with others well. He's a sweet boy who seems rather unaffected by his surroundings. He has no future where he's at, and without help, he's never getting out. Institutions are a one way ticket to nowhere. And this little boy deserves a future. This little boy will be a blessing to any family.

The Baker family has committed to adopt Frank and another boy, Emmitt. But international adoption is pretty expensive. The adoption would cost about $30,000. Reece’s Rainbow is an organization that helps with this cost. They set up grants for children in 25 countries around the world, and any money that is donated to these funds is given to the families to help with adoption fees. With Reece's Rainbow's help, the Baker family only needs about $10,000 to bring home both boys!

Duct Tape

I do have a post coming, but I wanted to get this up!
So, I make duct tape stuff, and sell it to raise money for kids and families. Well, here's my first sale with duct tape auction!

The first item are duct tape wallets. I have five available: one paint splatters, one pink zebra stripe, one cheetah print, and two digital camo print. And i can make more, any color (as long as you've seen it at a store, i can use it). Each duct tape wallet includes four card holders, and one see through pocket they also have two pockets in the back for money. Behind the card holders, there are two more pockets for change.
Starting bid: $8 each (includes shipping).
Next, I have water bottle holders. They are very durable, and are an across the chest, on the hip design. I have two that hold a normal sized Camelbak water bottle (24oz water bottle). I have two: a dark blue and light blue striped, and a teal one. I used it during my job at a summer camp and it worked well.
Starting Bid: $8 each (includes shipping).
I also have a duct tape belt. Starting Bid: $1
All my products are the best of quality.. I don't sell anything I wouldn't be willing to use. I actually use a duct tape wallet, and it works well. They are very durable. I don't use cheap duct tape, I use Duck brand duct tape. Other duct tape will separate when really hot, this does not. And duct tape presents make good gifts for kids.
Go to my FaceBook Auction to keep up!
All the proceeds go to the Crites family, who are adopting Marcus.
