A Christmas Miracle for Evelyn

A Christmas Miracle for Evelyn

Every year from Nov. 1 - Dec. 31 Reece's Rainbow has a special campaign to raise awareness and grant funds for orphans with special needs who are waiting for families.  

Each child has a "warrior" whose goal is to raise $1,000 or more to help with adoption expenses.  

Even more important than the money though...

Is getting the child SEEN.

The hope is that through advocacy a family will see the child...

And choose to adopt them.

The money raised will then help the family cover some of the expenses of the adoption process.

Formerly called "Angel Tree" the Christmas fundraiser now has a new name!


Adoption truly is a miracle for children like Evelyn!



Many of the children live in poor orphanages  and institutions with inadequate resources to provide for adequate nurturing or even basic necessities.

And even under the best of circumstances, no orphanage can fully supply a child's basic need for a family...

For permanence and a sense of belonging...

For a Mama and Papa who are truly their own...

Who don't just come and go when their shift is over like the nannies do, but are there for them...

Always.

This year all "warriors" got to choose a child to advocate for...

And I chose...




Evelyn has spina bifida... 

But her diagnosis should not define her!

She is a sweet girl who according to her profile, "just radiates love!"

Evelyn currently lives in an institution...

Many children in institutions die due lack of nurture, inadequate nutrition, and neglect.

Evelyn needs a miracle...

She needs a family to make her their very own...


Is Evelyn your child?

You can learn more about the adoption process HERE.

Even if you can't adopt...

You can still make a difference by donating to her adoption fund or sharing her story with your friends, family, coworkers, even strangers!

You never know, one of your friends may be her family!

To help raise funds for Evelyn's adoption miracle...

I am doing a simple fundraiser that can help raise awareness for not only Evelyn but also for a waiting child or adoptive family of your choice.

For a donation of $5 to Evelyn's adoption fund...

I will include a child or adoptive family of your choice in a future blog post...

And I will enter the child or family of your choice into a drawing.

The child or family that wins the drawing will receive a $25 donation to their adoption grant/family sponsorship fund!

Sharing this blog post will give your child or family an additional entry into the drawing.

In summary:

For EACH $5 donation to Evelyn

  • A Child or family of your choice will be included in a future blog post

($10 = 2 children, $15 = 3 children, etc)

  • AND will receive THREE entries into the drawing for a $25 donation 


Sharing this blog post = 1 entry to the $25 drawing for a child or family of your choice

To enter let me know (by commenting on this blog post) how much you donated to Evelyn and which child/children you want included in the drawing.  If you shared this post on Facebook, Twitter, or elsewhere, let me know where you shared and which child/family you want entered into the drawing.

You can browse a list of waiting children HERE.

You can donate to Evelyn on her profile page HERE or by clicking on her picture on the Christmas Campaign page HERE.

Donations are tax deductible!

Your prayers, shares, and donations make a difference!

Thank you for helping to make...
