Take Two Minutes. Save 100 Lives.

Members Project- RR

If you could help save a child’s life with just a few clicks of your mouse and two minutes of your time , would you?

Reece’s Rainbow is an organization that is very near and dear to my heart. The goal of Reece’s Rainbow is to save the lives of children with Down syndrome who are currently living in orphanages all over the world.

Meredith from Cornish Adoption Journey and Andrea Roberts know from Reece’s Rainbow about this first hand.

Andrea paints a very grim picture of the future of the children in these orphanages:

Even in the 21st century, the majority of children with Down syndrome are either prenatally aborted here in the US or hidden away in foreign orphanages and mental institutions. This travesty is a HOLOCAUST in every sense of the word. Donations to Reece’s Rainbow are raised as adoption grants, so American families can afford the high cost of adopting these children and rescue them from life and death in a mental institution.

There are forever families wanting, hoping and praying for the opportunity to adopt these children, they just need help with the adoption expenses.

And Meredith comes armed with a plan.

I’m very involved with Reece’s Rainbow, an international adoption ministry focusing on the adoption of children with special needs- specifically Down syndrome.

Reece’s Rainbow is currently in the running for a $1.5 grant which would cover $20,000 grants for each of the 100 waiting children currently on the website. The project is run by American Express and a general overview is found here: www.membersproject.com.

Reece’s Rainbow has collected nominations to bring it up pretty quickly in the running, but needs to be in the top 25 by September 1st to be in the running for any of the top 5 places, thus receiving between $100,000 and $1.5 million in donations toward their project.

If RR makes the top 25, then each day every person that has an American Express card will then be able to vote to continue to get RR to the top of the charts. For now, to get to the top 25, we just need visibility and ANYONE can nominate- with or without a card of your own.

So go. Nominate. Help save lives. Lots of lives.

Tell me where else you would get a better return on your two minutes?
