A DAY TO SAVE OLGA, my birthday wish for livia

in less than one month livia will be 5 years old... and i have a birthday wish to make from anybody reading this.

if you've been a regular visitor to livia-the-great then you'll remember sweet olga who just turned 5 yrs old and the invitation made (originally from reece's rainbow & patti @ a perfect lily) to help her find a forever family and to raise funds for her adoption fees...and this happened! the abell family stepped forward to adopt olga, and thanks to so many who gave so much, a grant of over $13,000 was raised for her adoption, a grant which is set aside for the final travel costs and fees that it will take to bring olga home. it will take every penny of that and then some... the abell family have done numerous fundraisers, and will continue to do so until they can bring olga home.

right now the they are in need of raising $7,000 that is required to submit their dossier for olga. they need to submit that dossier as soon as possible, for without that dossier it is not known if olga has been transferred yet to a mental institution... a mental institution where five year old girls are tied to cribs to keep them from climbing out.

the connection is clear: livia is turning 5 and it is an unfathomable thought that such a fate would await her.

it is also clear that there are so many children on this planet in need of being rescued from an unimaginably horrible life... or death.

i committed to helping at least ONE.

at the risk of dear olga losing her chance of being welcomed into the abell's family, i'm asking you to give in whatever way you can. $10, $20, $40 or $100 can go a long way to support this family to bring olga home.

this is my birthday wish for livia, for olga and for all children...


This is being called A Day to Save Olga, because there are about 17 of us blogging mamas who have set aside this day to blog, post on Facebook, pray, give and spread the word to SAVE OLGA.

Will you help us?

please go HERE to the abell's blogsite to donate... and THANK YOU for spreading the word...
