***Adoption Fundraiser***UPDATED

Adoption Fundraiser Party for The Doozleberry’s
Hosted by Christy & Missy
Discovery Toys and Usborne Books & More

You will have an opportunity to purchase Discovery Toys and Usborne products for your family. All the proceeds from the party are going to the Doozleberry’s adoption fund.

Ways that you can be involved:

If you live in the Salt Lake area, come to the party. We will be praying for Matthew and the family, visiting, snacking, and playing with all the fun products. Even if you aren’t in a position to purchase any of the products, please come join us in prayer.

If you live outside the area, please join us in praying for the family at 6:00 pm on May 29. Additionally, you can visit the following websites to place orders:


The proceeds from your online purchases will also benefit the Doozleberry family’s adoption fund.
UPDATE: IF YOU ORDER ONLINE, PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO missymaydunn@gmail.com WITH YOUR ORDER NUMBER AND "Doozleberry's Adoption Fund"
If you do not know my actual last name, please send me an email (via the address provided in my complete profile) and I will provide it for you.

There have been people who've exceeded our wildest expectations when it comes to helping us with our adoption expenses. People we've never met who have randomly left us $50 through my donation button. People like my good friend from college who sent me a check for $300 and nearly gave me cardiac arrest when I opened the envelope. Our parents who have generously contributed to helping us continue to fight for their grandson. And this is just to name a few. If you've donated money or uttered prayers on our behalf or asked us how we're doing, you have not gone unnoticed and we couldn't be doing this without you.

Then there is Missy. I know that she doesn't want the credit. I'm pretty sure she'll probably give me a talking to or, at the very least, a raised eyebrow when she reads this but you have to know all that her family has been doing for us. I won't go into detail but they have already donated generously to our fund. On top of that, Missy came to me with the idea for a fundraiser. She is a Discovery Toys and Usborne Books rep and she wanted to have a party where all proceeds would go directly toward our adoption costs. That kind of generosity astounds me.

I'd love for you to come if you're in the area. I'd love for you to order something off the websites if you're not. Of course I'd love it--it benefits Matthew. But here's the real deal...I'd love it the most if you would keep Missy's websites and use them if you ever want to make a purchase in the future. She has been so willing to help us. The least I can do is beg my 6 readers to use her as their personal Discovery Toys and Usborne Books representative.

*If you are interested in attending, please email me and I will send you the address. If you don't live in the area and would like a catalog, let me know. Also, my mom and mother-in-law should be receiving a catalog so if you know them and would like to see the catalog, just ask.


  1. How long will the proceeds go to you if I buy off the website? I am doing a student teaching class next spring and have to buy a lot of books/items for my midterm and final, which is setting up the entire classroom in my own fashion. I would love to buy my books from her to help you guys out. Let me know how long she is keeping the offer valid!


  2. Consider it done. They have a book I've been wanting for a while. As soon as I track down my wallet (again), I'm on it.

  3. I would like to come. I'm not sure if I have your e-mail address.
