Win Itty Bitty Bookworm Curriculum! Help Save An Orphan!



My husband and I have felt the call to adopt from Ethiopia. Our application has been approved, and we are stoked! But as you can probably imagine, this is an extremely expensive endeavor; especially since we'll most likely be adopting two children. The only way we can afford this adoption is through fundraising. (Read more about why we're adopting here.)

So stay with me here. This is a literacy related post, I promise!

Tara with The Itty Bitty Bookworm has very graciously offered 5 CDs of their curriculum to be raffled off for our very first fundraiser!! I love you, Tara!! :-)


There are 5 CDs of curriculum up for raffle. Each CD contains a full year of Itty Bitty Bookworm's toddler curriculum, AND a full year of their preschool curriculum! That's a $540 value! FIVE winners will be drawn and each winner will receive ONE CD of Itty Bitty Bookworm curriculum. So when you buy a $20 raffle ticket, you have 5 chances to win $540 worth of curriculum!!!

The Itty Bitty Bookworm is fabulous, literature-based curriculum for both toddlers (18-36 months) and preschoolers (3-5 yrs). Curriculum that's literature-based? Does it get any better than that?!!

Visit The Itty Bitty Bookworm's website and find out tons of great info about this curriculum!

"The magic of The Itty-Bitty Bookworm is in the simple, organized, teach-it-yourself curriculum. It’s a literature-based program on CD that does all the planning for you, so you can focus on what's important ~ your children.

The Itty-Bitty Bookworm is committed to excellence and devoted to the basic tenet that quality education can be enjoyable, too! The program is specifically designed for children ages 18 months - 5 years of age, and tailored to meet the unique needs of in-home preschools, family child-care centers, child development centers and home-schooling families."


You will receive 1 TICKET for every $20 you donate. There is no limit to how many tickets you can have in the raffle. For each donation you make, we will write your name on an actual ticket to be used in the drawing.


You have until 12p.m. CST on Wednesday, July 1st to purchase as many tickets as you would like. The winner will be drawn on the afternoon of July 1st.


Donate! We will hold a drawing of all the tickets and five winners will receive a prize. Simple as that!

Something for yourself and your children? It doesn't really matter, because no matter what this awesome curriculum will be used for, you just got a deal, my friend!
