Why $10,700?

If you've checked out our site, you know that our fundraising goal is $10,700. takes a 7% fee from all donations, so to be able to give the Rogs a check for $10,000, we actually need to raise $700 more than that.

But really, this is only about half of what the Rogs need. Given the time constraints we are working in with the gift basket fundraiser, we decided to set a lower bar in the hopes that we'd be able to fulfill the total 100% by the close of the fundraiser on Christmas Eve. But how cool would it be to surpass our goal--to double it--by Christmas morning? Can you imagine the gift that would be to this family?

Please help us to reach our stated goal--and then blow it away. Donate an item for the gift baskets today, or purchase raffle bids for the baskets that we'll start drawing winners for the day after Thanksgiving. Or heck--be a total superstar and do both. And then tell your friends and family about the easy way they can bestow a tremendous blessing on a wonderful woman and her family. Let's make this holiday season a neon-bright spot in a scary and faith-testing time.
