What foster kids are really like
We are currently have a fundraiser going on with Jamberry which are heat-activated vinyl nail wraps. May is National Foster Care Awareness Month! Please browse the website and your order will support a local non profit organize that works with kids in foster care and children being adopted.
They last up to 2 weeks on your fingers and about 6 weeks on your toes! Each sheet of nail wraps will give you three to four manicures or pedicures. This party is online , so you don’t need to go anywhere — or even get dressed! Just check the posts on this page when you get a Facebook notification.
You can check out all 360+ designs — plus the CUSTOM studio for creating your own nail wraps — at www.dawnhomminga.jamberrynails.net. When you’re ready to order, you do it directly through her site, pick the Child and Family Services Foster Care Awareness Fundraiser name from the party list and your products will ship to you immediately — no waiting for the party to close — and they arrive in just 7-10 business days!
