Little Painted Polka Dot Necklace {#fundraiser}

My sweet friend Lisa from Little Painted Polka Dots has been so generous in helping us bring home a little girl from Uganda.

She’s offered up this piece from her shop as fundraiser items for our adoption.


Whether you are adopting or are buying a necklace because you have a special place in your heart for a certain country, this necklace is for you.

This necklace is hand-cut by an amazing artist from a Sterling Silver disc and hand-stamped by me with the quote or words of your choice, up to 30 characters including spaces. Choose from any country!

{you only have 4 weeks to use THIS LINK to purchase the necklace. After May 20th, you must use the code “TUCKERADOPTION” for us to get a portion of the sale}


Lisa has also offered this amazing piece as well. “Hope” and “Love” are simple yet super stylish. A 3/4″ aluminum disc has been stamped with the word HOPE or LOVE with Africa in place of the O.  These discs are 1100 Pure Aluminum – safe for your skin, no tarnishing or adverse reactions!  At 18g, they are much thicker than our regular pieces, yet lightweight and perfect for a necklace.  They have been polished for a great brushed finished.  Hangs from an 18″ stainless steel ball chain.

We are so grateful for each of you and really do appreciate your purchase & help in bringing home our daughter from Uganda. But most importantly, we ask for prayers as we make this addition to our family.
