World Down Syndrome Day!…

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.

Thank you!

JASPER is my Orphan of the Month for November and December because he is also my Angel Tree Child for this year’s big Christmas fundraiser over at Reece’s Rainbow.

i would like to let you know that we had one order in November and raised US$15 for JASPER‘s adoption grant. This has already been put into his grant which currently stands at US$8984.05.

i am also posting lots on my advocacy page and to other groups i know, to help share JASPER‘s need for a forever family. He has only 3 weeks left before he is “unadoptable”.

You can help!

  1. Do your Christmas Shopping  Angel Crafts Shop this month and contribute to JASPER‘s adoption grant.
  2. You can PRAY for JASPER – for a family to step up for him ASAP. For his well-being and his future.
  3. You can SHARE JASPER‘s need for a forever family.

You can read more about JASPER by clicking on his picture or name. That is also where you can contribute directly to his adoption grant if you feel led to.

Thank you very much.


Angel Tree 2014 – Orphan of the Month for November… Angel Crafts Shop…

Yep, that’s a very long title for a post – but i wanted to be sure to let you know that i’m talking about two things today.

First of all, it is the 1st of November!! Which means the start of Reece’s Rainbow’s Angel Tree 2014! For the next 2 months, up till New Year’s Eve, advocates of these precious children will be fundraising BIG TIME for their chosen child.

The whole aim of this big event is to raise US$1000 for each of these orphan’s adoption grants and of course to give a huge push in building awareness of their needs, especially their need for a loving forever family.

My Angel Tree Child is also the boy my son and i have been praying for since the beginning of this year – it is JASPER

Jasper needs his forever family to step forward ASAP - he ages out in 2 MONTHS!

This is our last shot at helping JASPER to find a forever FAMILY and to grow his adoption grant.

Why? Because Jasper will be AGING OUT of his country’s adoption system in 2 MONTHS, that’s just 61 DAYS! After which he will be “unadoptable”. 😦

So we are going to give it our all and shout out loud for JASPER to have a family and grow his grant.

Why grow his grant? Because he is unlikely to be adopted domestically as he is a boy, older and has special needs which many in his home country deem to be a curse. His hope lies in international adoption which includes tons of expensive paperwork and travel expenses.

Is there still enough time for a family to reach him in time? YES! i have seen high-speed international adoptions done and i believe in miracles. Also, if a family is already adopting from his country and is approved for 2 kids but only bringing home 1, they can very quickly add him to their current paperwork and bring both kids home.

What if (i do not even want to think about this) he does not get adopted? Then he would face a hard life; forever an orphan, having to struggle to make a living with little to no skills or education, and being looked down upon and taken advantage of for the rest of his life because of his special needs.

What happens to his adoption grant if it is not used? It will channeled to another child. Reece’s Rainbow has very kindly said they would consult me and that i could consult you, my donors and supporters, as to which other child in their long list would benefit.

BUT let’s not get ahead of ourselves – let’s focus on the POSITIVE and WORK to help JASPER find a family and grow his grant.

The very first fundraiser i have planned is, of course, Angel Crafts Shop’s Orphan of the MonthJASPER who was our March/April Orphan of the Month is back one more time. Let’s try to get the Orphan of the Month giving to 3 digits – Okay?

Please help me make a difference for this sweet boy – make a PURCHASE on Angel Crafts Shop and help GROW his adoption grant. 

Also SHARE his story through as many channels as you can and with as many people as you can because somewhere out there is his forever family and they may just see him because you shared.

OH… if you feel led to simply give towards JASPER‘s adoption grant (without purchase from Angel Crafts Shop), see the link on the right which says ‘Click to Donate‘, simply click on that to give directly to JASPER‘s grant.

Thank you so much for your support and prayers.

Do stay tuned for more exciting and interesting fundraisers through out November and December! Next one would be up and running on the 5th of November!
