#Veronika's Prom

NOW please pass this next message along and share on Twitter, Facebook and anywhere you can think of!  We are so proud of Sasha!  She is an inspiration to us!  She has started the fundraiser below for Veronika!  Veronika as you will read below is a Ukrainian orphan that will age out of the system this year and if she is not adopted before her birthday she will most likely become a statistic with a sad outcome!  Please help Sasha to spread the word about this amazing idea. 


Please pass this along to flower shops, dress shops, hair salons - anywhere that has an interest in PROM and maybe they would be willing to donate a small amount of their proceeds from doing hair and nails for Prom to Veronika's Prom etc.  Please also pass this along to news media and those that have access to ways to spread the word! 

Dear friends of ours have stepped up to adopt Veronika and we are so excited for them and precious Veronika but approximately $25,000 is needed to bring her home.  It looks like a lot of money but what is the value of life?? 

This is nothing to our God and if we all join together and spread the word this can be raised by many giving just a little.  Think of 1 dollar from every ticket bought to a prom being given to this adoption.  If every school in the county got involved that is a lot of tickets and a lot of money - every school in the State getting involved and giving 1 dollar - think about those numbers - the NATION. 

 So please support Sasha in raising funds for another teenager so that she too can have the love of a family!  Please take time to read Sasha's message below and get involved how ever you can!  Sasha started a Facebook page called #Veronika's Prom and you can join to watch the updates!  Let's share this everywhere and bless the lives of two young girls...Veronika and Sasha!

#Veronika's Prom


Make Your Prom Count



Did You Know...


Russia and Ukraine do not like each other.
In Ukraine and Russia, orphans who turn 16 become unadoptable and
age out of the orphanages. Many are forced to live on the streets with no
way to survive.


60 percent of girls are lured into prostitution.
1015
percent of orphans commit suicide before they turn 18.



50 percent of Eastern European orphans don't live to their 20th
birthday.



 
Sasha and Veronika...

My name is Sasha. I was adopted from Russia when I was 17 months old. Now
I am a senior at Cedar Crest High School. Since I was adopted, I was rescued from
becoming a nameless statistic. Now, I have the chance to experience the love of a
family, get an education, and be a normal teenager.


Veronika is a teenage orphan in Ukraine. She is fifteen and if no one adopts
her, she will age out and become a statistic. A family has stepped forward to adopt
Veronika and show her what it means to have a forever family. Now, she will get to
experience things that we take for granted.



 
#Veronika's Prom

This year, as a senior in high school, I have the opportunity to attend prom.
Next year, Veronika will have the chance to attend prom too. However, had a family
not chosen to adopt her and welcome her home, she would be one of the statistics I


shared above. She would not have a family. She would not be loved. She would not
matter to anyone.
 
In Honor of Veronika, I am choosing to not go to prom. Instead, I am
fundraising for her adoption.

 
The Average Cost of a Ukraine Adoption: $25,000
The Average Cost for 200 students (half my senior class) to attend prom: $55,400
 
On Cedar Crest Prom Night, Friday, May 1, 2015, there will be party Dedicated to Veronika.
This is for anyone! You can go to BOTH Prom and #Veronika's Prom, for a night of pizza,
movies, games and more!
