Reece’s Rainbow Angel Tree Project

This year, I signed up to be a Christmas Prayer Warrior for sweet little Shawna!  So when you see this on the side of my blog, you will know what it’s for.  I will be doing a fundraiser for her adoption fund starting next week!  This is where I ask for your help!  I would like to do a silent auction on my blog for her!  If anyone out there makes anything cool or has something to donate towards the Silent Auctions, please let me know ASAP!!!!

Now on to what the Angel Tree Project is…………………….

Reece’s Rainbow is the organization where we found our daughter to be and I can’t say enough good things about this group.  They are advocating for orphans with Down syndrome as well as children with other special needs.  Their biggest fundraiser is the Angel Tree project which helps to raise funds for each waiting child with Down syndrome.  If you donate at least $35 dollars, you will receive a beautiful porcelain photo ornament to hang on your tree, like the one pictured above.   I am specifically advocating for a little boy, Marshall who is such a cutie and currently has no funds in his grant adoption fund.  If you would like to donate for him, click on the button below and to the right.  Below is the letter which explains exactly how the fundraiser works.

Announcing our 4th Annual


The Reece’s Rainbow Down Syndrome Adoption Ministry is a 501c3 charity which promotes and facilitates the international adoption of children with Down syndrome.

In only 3 years, more than 225 children with Down syndrome and other special needs have found their “forever families” at the end of Reece’s Rainbow!

Your gifts have made that possible!

The Angel Tree is our most important fundraiser each year, and this year we have(166) orphans with Down syndrome around the world who are in need of grant donations (and adoption!)

From November 1-December 31, 2009, each of our orphaned children is praying that YOU will be their “Christmas Warrior”.   Please help them raise money in their adoption grant fund so a *forever family* can  afford to rescue them from life in a mental institution.

There are families lined up and waiting to save these children,but they need financial help to do it! With an average cost of $25,000 to adopt internationally, every penny helps.  Even the smallest donations really add up, and can truly change the course of a child’s life!

*** With your donation of $35 (or more), you will receive a beautiful, porcelain Christmas ornament with your sponsored child’s photo on the back. ***

This is a special way to share Christmas with an orphaned child, and to make it possible for them to  spend NEXT Christmas at home with their new family!

Regardless of your faith, ethnic background, or nationality, your gift is life-saving in nature.  Our goal is to raise $1000 or more for each of our waiting children.  You can help by donating and sharing this Angel Tree with others! This is a very meaningful and personal gift idea for the holidays too!

Your additional gifts to our Voice of Hope fund help keep our ministry operational.

Give the gift of a family this Christmas!


International sponsors welcome!
