Help us raise Aerie's plane ticket home...

We are having a Pampered Chef Fundraising Party On-Line. 
The money we earn from the sales will go towards little Aerie Paiges plane ticket home! 
 I know we can all use great kitchenware, so won't you help us and get yourself a goodie too?

To shop simply click on the link above, once on this Pampered Chef site, choose "our products" then type in
Cooper Adoption Fundraiser into the hostess name line
(Complete directions:1. On the home page, click on "our products". It is on the left side in about
the middle of the page.  2. Shop!!!  3. When you find the item you want, click on it to get to the quantity

requested page. To the right of the quantity box, click on "How to Purchase."

4. This will take you to the page that will allow you to enter the name of the

fundraiser you want to support: "Cooper adoption fundraiser".

5. After you select the fundraiser, you will be directed back to the item you wish to purchase. You can then continue shopping. You should see the Cooper Fundraiser listed on the top right of your screen.)
(please be sure to type in "Cooper Adoption Fundraiser" when ordering)  
If you live near me you can have it delivered to me and I will bring you your items, or you can choose to have your order shipped directly to you. 

Order now through March 3rd, 2011.
I highly suggest any of the clay baking stoneware!  I use mine all the time, my favorites are the round/pizza stones and the rectangular baker.  No more burnt cookies or rubbery pizza crusts when you have these- they are amazing!  Also the icing spreaders are wonderful!  I hated icing cakes before I got mine and now I LOVE it, they make it so easy.
(Oh, and don't miss the "guest specials" tab- you can get free items with a certain amount purchase)
P.S. I have catalogs if you do not want to shop On-Line 
Thank you and God bless you for watching our Blog and considering a Pampered Chef purchase :) 

Angi, Tim, and Aerie
(Thank you Carmen, fellow adoptive Mommy, for offering this neat way to help us earn funds to help bring our baby girl home!)
