i had every intention of writing this post last week but got caught out with work and didn’t get round to it. And i am sorry.
Reece’s Rainbow is a wonderful non-profit organisation, run by volunteers, which provide a voice for special needs orphans who are unable to speak for themselves. They champion the needs of these precious children, especially their need for a caring family to love these kids just as they are, to see these children for the wonderful people they could become if given the best opportunities.
In the 10 years Reece’s Rainbow has been in operation, they have highlighted the plight of many special needs orphans in countries which don’t have the infrastructure to support them, they have built awareness of the fact that some of these children live in terrible conditions, most of all they have helped over 2000 orphans find a family to call their own. They have helped adopting families by giving out over US$11.5 million to make their journey to bringing these kids home easier.
Every year from March 1st to 21st, they have a special fundraising drive to raise the money they need to continue their daily operations. Please remember that they are all volunteers and this amount of US$21,000 they raise is just for administration costs.
This year, they have fallen short of their daily US$1000 over 21 days target. Can you help them make it up? The work they do is so good and important, please help them. You can make a difference!

Thank you very much.
On the World Down Syndrome Day website, it says it’s an hour twenty minutes till the start of WDSD 2015!
Just a few years ago, this day did not hold much significance to me. i knew it existed and what it was for but it wasn’t personal. Now it is. Because God opened my eyes to the world of special needs orphans, through the ministry of Reece’s Rainbow, which started because of a mother’s love for her boy with Down Syndrome and her love for orphans with the same condition but without the support of a loving family like her son.
Now at the beginning of March, Reece’s Rainbow started its special fundraiser, 21 Days of Hope, which raises money to help them have funds to continue to help these precious children who need to be given a voice. We were funding raising for Reece’s Rainbow Voice of Hope Fund as well as for the adoption grants of 21 specific children.
And we did it! You did it! You helped! You gave! And the target was met and each of those 21 children got an additional US$2100 into their adoption grants. This will so help their forever families when they come for them. THANK YOU!
Now please check out how you can continue to help build awareness for World Down Syndrome Day here!
Please continue to support Reece’s Rainbow‘s work as well as the orphans they try to help.
Please continue to pray for these orphans and share their stories and need for a family with everyone you know.
March is a special time for everyone who supports Reece´s Rainbow´s work; their work is to help bring awareness to the situation of special needs orphans, to show the world that these precious children need a loving family, help these families on their journey by providing a fundraising venue and bear witness to how that love can make such a difference to the life of a child and bring such joy to the family who opens their hearts and home and choose to love on a child who may not have known love otherwise.
Reece´s Rainbow is made up of mainly volunteers and a very small office, where they try to save as much as they can so every penny goes to the children. BUT administration costs are inevitable.
So the 21 Days of Hope fundraiser from March 1st through to 21st March is to help raise funds for the Voice of Hope (VOH) fund which keeps Reece´s Rainbow running.
This year this fundraising effort will also help increase the grants of 21 waiting children. See the list of children here. For every US$1000 raised for VOH, US$2100 will be added of one of the 21 children´s adoption grant!
Now here´s the challenge!
If US$1000 is raised for VOH *each day*, then the grant for the child of that day will be doubled!
