Hello Everyone!

 

WE WILL BE CUTTING OFF REQUESTS AT 11:59PM ON SUN. NOVEMBER 18TH.  THIS WILL ALLOW US TO GET MORE FAMILIES POSTED AND MORE ADOPTIONS COMPLETED.

It’s that time of year again! We are gearing up and ready to go for this holiday season!   Please read our procedures that are in place. These procedures MUST be followed or your request may NOT be posted.

We will start taking requests on October 15th. Please read the following below in order to be considered:

· The program is open to residents of MN and WI
· Deadline for requests is NOVEMBER 18, 2018 – NO EXCEPTIONS!

· Once we receive your website submission, we will respond to your request ONLY if there is a donor matched with your family
o You will have 24 hours to respond to our email – if we do not hear back from you within 24 hours, we will move on
· Please make sure when submitting on our website you include the following:
o First and LAST name (put in same box as first name), phone number, email address and home address(PUT ON SAME LINE AS CITY)
o Your children’s ages, genders and interests/needs (reasonable requests only please – making requests for big ticket items may cause you to not be adopted)

Families/Individuals Requesting to Adopt:

· Please allow us a minimum of 48 hours to respond to your request to adopt

Emails asking if we’ve received your request or if we’ve heard anything will NOT be answered. We have full time jobs and families with young kids and will be working on matching up families at night. We do not have time to answer questions like if we’ve “heard anything”, etc…

We know that this is a lot to remember but changes have been made to make this process as easy as possible so that we can get things done in a timely manner.

PLEASE NOTE!! IF YOU WERE ADOPTED LAST YEAR YOU WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE PROGRAM THIS YEAR!! This is to give other families who were not adopted a chance this year. Thank you for your understanding!

New Rules on Facebook

Hi Everyone!
In order to better serve everyone’s needs we are making a few changes.
Adopt a Family Angels-Minnesota
NEW RULES (AS OF 11/25/14)
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE BEFORE PROCEEDING…
NOT FOLLOWING THESE RULES MAY RESULT IN YOUR REQUEST NOT BEING READ OR FULFILLED!!

1. Do NOT post any requests for help on our Facebook page. Instead, follow rule #2. If you are interested in adopting a family, see rule #3

2. If you are requesting to be adopted, please EMAIL us at adoptafamilyangelsminnesota@gmail.com with the following information:
-Your first name
-Contact information (email AND phone number, if possible)
-City in which you live
-Short summary of your situation
-Children’s ages AND gender
-Items on your family’s wish list

3. If you are interested in adopting a family, please scroll through the posts and find a family you would like to help. Comment on that post that you want to adopt that family, and THEN EMAIL US at adoptafamilyangelsminnesota@gmail.com with the following information:
-Your name
-Contact information (email AND phone number, if possible)
-The ID # of the family you would like to adopt (found on the Facebook post)

4. Matches will be made on a first come, first serve basis. Once a match is made, we will email both the family in need and the adopters with each other’s contact information. We will then delete the Facebook posting so as not to cause confusion.

5. Adopt a Family Angels-Minnesota is NOT a formal organization or non-profit. This Facebook page is run entirely by volunteers. Once matches are made and contact information is exchanged, the administrators are not responsible for any further contact.

6. For safety reasons, it is highly encouraged that adopters meet their matches in a public setting.

The response after the Kare11 story has been overwhelming!! Thank you so much for answering the call for help. Please allow AT LEAST 2-3 Days for us to get back to you! We both work during the day! Thank you so much again!

Please share this page with your friends and family.

As much as we would love to help everyone, it’s just not always possible…not everyone will be matched and not everyone will be posted, but we are going to try!

Thank you so much for answering our call for help!

As in anything online, use caution when meeting in person offline.

Happy Holidays!!!
