Reece's Rainbow's annual Christmas Angel Tree Project begins today. It is RR's biggest and most important fundraiser of the year. All the younger orphans with Down syndrome (ages 0-5) that RR has identified and is trying to find families for are posted on one page so that people can sponsor and donate to the children's adoption grants.
The Christmas Angel Tree runs from November 1- December 31, 2010. When you donate $35 or more for a child, before December 15, you receive a beautiful photo ornament of your sponsored child to hang on your tree! These ornaments make fabulous gifts for friends, family, teachers, advocates, etc while providing a life-saving gift for the child who is in desperate need of a “forever family” of their own.
This is a very special way to “share Christmas” with an orphaned child, and to make it possible for other families to afford the high cost of rescuing them from orphanages and mental institutions around the world!
I am going to get a special "Christmas Warrior" button for the blog that will let you donate directly from here, but for now you can donate through paypay through the RR Christmas Tree Angel page here http://reecesrainbow.org/sponsorship/angeltree2010 .
Just scroll down to find Martin's handsome face, click on the donate link, and remember to put Martin in the message area. If your heart is drawn to another child waiting for a family, feel free to put your money and prayers toward that child too.
Better yet, you can save the paypal fees and send a check directly to Reece's Rainbow at
