Blog Auction 2 Winners

The following are the winners for our second blog auction. I think that is a bit ironic - as I deem our little Matthew and Ivanna and the rest of our family the "winners" because of everyone's generosity. I truly want to extend our family's thanks to those who donated, and bid on the items. There was a lot of work that went into it all, from creating to sacrificing of finances in order to bid. Every bit of it is a HUGE blessing to us ~ and we don't count it small stuff. We know God is providing, but He is using His people to do so ~ and for that we are very grateful.

I will list the names, and amount of which you bid ~ for your convenience, so you don't have to scroll through the pages. If I made a mistake, please let me know. I will try and fix it.

There is a 'chip-in' at the end of this post (below name list) for you to pay for your items. It will take you to paypal. You can also pay via check to Reece's Rainbow - see info at bottom of post. Some items will have to be shipped, so please include your address for that. I wish I could meet you and thank you in person!!!

*** NOTE*** The question was posed in the comment field of wether it would be better to pay via the provided 'chip in' or making a check out to Reece's Rainbow. The Chip In is provided for your convenience, because so many use paypal for online shopping. The downfall to using the 'chip in' is that it is not considered tax deductible, also - when we go to pull money out of the paypal there is a fee associated with that. We just avoid that by waiting until our travel date to use the money. The plus side to using the 'chip in' is that the funds are available to us now, if need be. If you would like to pay by check to Reece's Rainbow - it will be counted as a tax deductible donation - and a receipt will be mailed back to you. Please put our name: Browning; in memo section. Funds will be available to us as soon as a travel date is received.
*you can also pay via our "button" on sidebar. It will take you to a paypal page also for Reece's Rainbow, if you pay this way be sure to mark "Browning family" in memo. ~ this method of payment is also tax deductible.

If any payment is made through Reece's Rainbow, please let me know so I can get your item to you. I won't know you paid unless you tell me. Thank you!

Reece's Rainbow Address:
P.O. Box 4024
Gaithersburg, MD 20885

Either way - is fine with us. We count it all a blessing and thank each and every one of you.

Do we just add up the amount and pay that way. Do you prefer a check right to RR in your name? Does it matter? Do you lose any money paying paypal?

whatever is best...


The Browning Family said...

Gretchen - either way is fine. Yes, we do loose a percentage through paypal ~ if you write a check to RR ~ just put our family name in memo ~ plus then it will be tax deductible. I need to go mention that in post. Thanks for the reminder.
It will not be tax deductible if paid through chip in.
Yes, please add up your total, but PLEASE let me know your address! THANK YOU
