For our next fundraiser, we’ve decided to do something that could involve friends and family both near and far. We are working on putting together a puzzle of Seoul Tower, one of our favorite places in Seoul. We went to the top of it on our first visit to Korea and placed a lock of love with Lukas’ name on it while we were there. We will make another trip to the tower to place a lock with Minho’s name on it when we travel again to Seoul.
We had planned to begin this fundraiser about a month ago after our hot dog fundraiser. Then came our surprise referral and the rush to raise the funds for our acceptance fee. The puzzle idea was definitely placed on the backburner. Now that we are working on saving for our travel expenses, we decided it was time to start putting this puzzle together.
Here’s how it works: On the back of each puzzle piece we are writing the names of those who’ve donated money toward Minho’s adoption. We have already written every person’s name who helped us with the referral fee. We want to continue putting the puzzle together and that’s where you can help. For each $10 donation, we will write your name on the back of a piece of the puzzle. When the puzzle is completed, we are going to hang this puzzle in Minho’s room. It will be placed between 2 pieces of glass so that one day he can see each person who helped us bring him home.
This is what it will look like when it’s completed:
Here’s what it looks like so far:
There are 252 total pieces and we have 49 put together so far. That means we have 203 pieces left to complete Minho’s puzzle. When the 203 pieces have been completed, we will have $2,030 toward our travel expenses!
If you would like to donate $10 towards a puzzle piece, you may use paypal or send us a check if you don’t live close to us. You can use my email address: alccrain at gmail dot com for paypal or to ask for our mailing address. If you live close by, you can just see us in person.
Once again, thank you so much for your help in bringing our sweet boy home. We cannot say thank you enough for joining in on this journey with us.
