If you follow me on twitter, you might have noticed that I retweet a lot of things from Reece’s Rainbow. Here is a little info about RR straight from their website:
“In 2006, the program expanded to include promoting the
international adoption of children with Down syndrome. By raising
money to offer adoption grants on waiting children, we are able to give
adoptive families the extra financial help they need to bring a child
with Down syndrome home from a miserable existence in overseas
Our Sponsorship Program
provides a unique opportunity for anonymous donors to contribute to the
adoption journey of our families. These children are viewed as
outcasts with no ability to learn or be functional members of society.
They languish in mental institutions, hidden away from the world in
Even if you are not able to adopt a child at this time,
you truly can change the course of a child’s life by helping adoptive
families afford the costs of international adoption. $20, $50,
$1000….whatever you have goes into an interest-bearing fund for ANY
family adopting a child with Down syndrome. Click here to learn the many ways you can help!
Families interested in adopting should visit our New Family page for more information on our country programs, our waiting children, the costs, and the process in general.
From these humble beginnings, Reece’s Rainbow has been
powered by the grace of God and thousands of passionate advocates. In
only 6 years, we have found adoptive families for more than 900+
orphaned children with Down syndrome and other special needs around the
world. More than $4.5 million in grant funds have
been disbursed to make those adoptions possible. I can say with great
confidence that if we had a full grant for every child on our website,
there would BE no children on our website. There are hundreds of
families in the US and Canada who would give their left arm to bring one
or more of these children home. The money is the ONLY thing standing
in their way.”
Now today I am not asking you to give money or anything, because I know around Christmas money can be really tight. But I am asking that you checkout this website called Sevenly that has a different cause every week. I believe I have shared about them in the past. Every week they sell different T Shirts and hoodies to benefit a new charity. And this weeks is Reece’s Rainbow. If you like any of the designs on there, please do consider purchasing because the proceeds to go to a worthy cause that I have loved for over a year now. Here are a few of my favorite things on there right now:
Don’t forget, tomorrow is the LAST day to purchase something on there and help an orphan through your purchase! Only 22 more hours to raise $7000! I am also adding a button to the side of my blog to make access to the site quick and easy! If you have any questions about RR, feel free to checkout their website here, or even email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to answer any questions or forward them to someone who can help!
