Fundraiser has ended

Sadly the fundraiser was a flop. It probably had to do with the fact that I could not post as much due to being out of town or just no body needed a pendant right now. Oh well, I tried no matter the reason. I know alot of families are focussed on their own fundraisers right now.

I encourage you if you want a pendant to order today! As of this morning only 1 other pendant has been ordered besides the one i ordered myself.

Tomorrow is last day for fundraiser!

If you would like to order a pendant necklace & benefit these girls please order by tomorrow! Also if you can share the link to my post about the fundraiser that would be great & it helps spread the word about these girls needing a family!

Reminder fundraiser starts tomorrow!

Wanted to send out a reminder that the fundraiser starts tomorrow & ends March 27th. Also you may have noticed the donate boxes gone, I have been asked to take them down for now as they have been having overwhelming amounts of people coming to the website donating through those. It is good news for Reeces Rainbow but for now I will direct you to donate on Celine or Cora Lynnes Reeces Rainbow pages which is the same as those boxes.
Thanks, Leah
PS the Change campaign for the Miller family has gone great thus far & have only 4 containers left to get back. If you still want to donate directly to the Millers please also go to their Reeces Rainbow page. If you donate $5 or more to the Millers grant fund please place a comment & I will make sure your name gets placed on the back of a puzzle piece! I have still 483 pieces left to fill! Please consider being apart of this special puzzle for Quinton!

New Fundraiser for Celine & Cora Lynne!

I asked Sarah from sarahstreasurebox on etsy if she would be willing to do a fundraiser for Celine & Cora Lynne
and she said she would. She has been hosting several fundraisers for the Reeces Rainbow families adopting & I am pleased to be the 1st for children still waiting for their forever families. Only March 24-27th, $5 for every pendant sold (except
custom orders they do not count) will either go to Celine or Cora Lynnes grant
fund. You MUST leave a message saying it is for the fundraiser at message to
seller when checking out. So if you need a gift for Easter, Birthday, or some
other occassion and want to support 2 girls still waiting for families I
encourage you to check it out!

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

Its World Down Syndrome Day-March 21st (Chromosome 21)
I have been so blessed with my sister who has that extra chromosome! In Honor of her, I proudly will not be eating fast food today & donate that money to Celine & Cora Lynnes grant funds! Will you give up a soda, fastfood, starbucks, something else to save a life of 2 orphans in need of a forever family? 20+ yrs ago our country thought people with Down Syndrome should be locked away in institutions & not be mainstreamed in school classes, thankfully our country has improved alot but sadly Eastern Europe has not caught on to what we in america have. Please pray for these kiddos & that someday there will be no need to put them away in orphanages & institutions. These kids have been BLESSED TO BE BORN so lets fight all we can for them in prayer, advocating, & donating.

Fighting for them all!

Since I have seen some harsh real pictures of what the kids face, I keep fighting for them all. Celine has been waiting at least 8 months or more for a family. Thats too long for this pretty girl! I have no idea if she has been transfered yet or not. Cora Lynnes 5th birthday is coming up in May. Please help me so that kids like these pretty girls can find families! In Honor of World Down Syndrome day on Monday I have challenged my friends on facebook to skip starbucks, or something else they love on that day & to instead donate that money to Celine & Cora Lynne! I hope to do a yard sale for the girls & Quinton soon and possibly a handmade blog auction. If your interested in helping these girls let me know! Also the puzzle fundraiser still is going & we still have 483 pieces left PLEASE help me fill this puzzle with names & help BRING QUINTON HOME!

Hard to come up with ideas

I am having such a hard time thinking of some creative easy ways to fundraise for Quinton & the "girls". I wish I could host a giveaway but I have nothing to giveaway. I am trying so hard with the puzzle fundraiser for Quinton but its been slow going. Just $5 (or more!) to help bring him home & if we fill the puzzle I will consider doing a puzzle fundraiser for the girls. Anyone have ideas that are creative & cheap that could bring lots of money in to help find their forever families?

Another giveaway going on right now to help 3 RR kids!
I have loved following along this families blog & now she is helping these kids in a big way! Please I encourage you to check it out, I know I don't have an exciting looking blog or many followers but doing what I can to help these kiddos find their forever families! If I win an ipad, itouch, or wii (already have one!) I will be repaying it forward in doing a giveaway for the girls & Quinton!

One of the most exciting times each year!

Dear Quinton, today I am excitedly getting ready for the annual local Just Between Friends Consignment Sale. Its a sale of used/new kids items for moms to purchase & get rid of their stuff.I look forward to the twice a year annual sales to shop for the pregnancy center I volunteer at, myself (they have crafts & other items), & others. I not only shop but sell as well to fundraise for different charities. Friends that have kids give me their stuff to sell so that I can fundraise. Well, happily I report thats what I did for a fundraiser before you found a family! I raised $76 (and change!) for you & another little girl Celine from reeces rainbow last fall & another amount at another sale that was more local. (They have several in the communities around me!) I also am so pleased as a friend, donated her items she was planning on selling just to me for fundraising for you! Its not a huge amount, but all are in exelent shape or new! Every little bit helps bring you home right? I will also be using the sale to fundraise for me to go serve at a christian summer camp for kids & adults with special needs this summer. I really want to host a yard sale for you & my other 2 prayer children in march/april & a giveaway but we will have to see. The puzzle fundraiser continues on very slowly but maybe we will get more pieces filled hopefully soon right? The Puzzle is so Beautiful, & I hope you enjoy it! Change campaign is still going so we will see part of it going into your grant shortly & the rest to come. Well, I better get to working so that you have a good chance of getting the rest of the funds needed to bring you home! I love you Quinton with all my heart & soul, we will meet someday hopefully. Your prayer warrior, birthday buddy,& friend, Leah

Together we can Bring Quinton Home!

I am challenging you, Please help bring Quinton home! I have 483 pieces still & I would love to fill this puzzle up fast & raise the remaining amount needed to bring him Home! If we raise the remaining amount on the puzzle fundraiser I would like to help another little girl who has $0 & is still waiting for her forever family! She reminds me so much of another special little girl I know at church. Please help me help Quinton, & then maybe I can start helping this little girl as well! We also have 20 days til the change campaign ends! if you would like to be apart of the change campaign for Quinton I encourage you to start a jar! Every little bit helps bring him home!
