Raffle Day #2

First of all, we want to thank you all for your kindness, your support and encouragement.

140 tickets have already been sold. We aim (hope!) to sell a thousand in these 10 days.

And you know what? It has been raining cats and dogs here for days, but yesterday afternoon the sun broke through the clouds and we saw this amazing huge rainbow in the sky. We could clearly see all its colors. And a bit later ... a second one on top! A double rainbow is very, very rare, I hope that you can see it in the pictures.

We took it to be a good omen of hope for Sandra and her little boy.

I want to share with you a comment that we got here yesterday and found specially moving:

'I was widowed with a one year old daughter exactly five years ago this week. One of the things that helped me get through that awful first year was simply the cash that strangers/colleagues/friends gave me. I don't know if anyone who hasn't been through it can imagine the financial burden losing a loved one places on a family, but it's enormous and long term. '

We can't indeed, imagine the anguish and despair you went through, Sasha. Hugs and many thanks.
It is good to be reminded of what it is from somebody that has lived the same tragedy.

We can not take away Sandra's pain, but we can take take away some of her worries.

Please see the previous post if you don't know what this is all about, there are more then 50 prizes worth more then 2000$ to win, all money from the tickets will go to Sandra and her son.
You can win free tickets by sharing this raffle on your blog, twitter or facebook, the more the merrier. If you don't want to participate in the raffle but would like to help Sandra she sells amazing ceramic pieces which is her only income at Azulado.
