You Can Help

In many different countries, orphaned children with disabilities are transferred to mental institutions after "aging out" of the baby orphanage. These children can be anywhere from 3-6 years old when they "age out" and are placed in adult mental institutions. This is no place for a child! Many will be tied to cribs and beds, neglected and/or abused. Tragically, 80% of these special needs children do not survive their first year in the mental institutions. The ones that do survive, will spend the remainder of their lives hidden away in these institutions b/c there is no place for them in their society. Their only hope is to be adopted. There is no shortage of families willing to adopt special needs orphans, only a lack of funds.

This is where YOU come in to the picture. Donate as little as $5 or as much as you can. A $5 donation to this fundraiser will give you 1 entry into our raffle for a brand new iPad. Donating is quick and easy to do. All you do is choose which "Chip In" you want to donate to. You will find the "Chip In's" at the top of this blog. You can choose between 1. Older Other Angels (these are orphans with varying special needs other than Down Syndrome/"DS")  2. Older Boys with DS   3. Older Girls with DS. Just click on the "Chip In" button of your choice. Follow the simple directions to make your donation. Then let me know who you are and how much you donate so I can enter you into the raffle the correct number of times.

Every cent of your donation goes directly to Reece's Rainbow and into one of the three older child adoption grant funds. The grants help lessen the financial burden of adopting these precious children. Every donation helps bring a family one step closer to rescuing one of these special children by adopting them into their family. November 30, 2010 is the last day to donate to this fundraiser! Please don't delay, make your donation to help save these children today! The winner of the iPad will be randomly selected on December 1, 2010.

Learn to do right; seek justice.
   Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
   plead the case of the widow.
