We Did It!!!

I just had to update everyone on the progress of fundraising for Nana! The $1000 goal has been exceeded and $1295 has been donated for her since November 1!!! I do not know all of the donors, but I am so thankful and pray that they are blessed for giving. If you helped achieve this goal either through giving, sharing or praying...thank you so much!

I have been blown away by watching amazing things happen with Reece's Rainbow over the past two months. There has been a lot of money raised to help these children become part of a family and the greatest part is that as of today 15 of these children have families who are committed to bringing them home!

I have to say that I was nervous when I signed up to raise funds for Nana. Everyone knows that I keep my plate very full and this year it has been overflowing. However, I feel like I am blessed beyond measure and my eyes are truly open to the importance of giving back. Because the Lord has opened my eyes and my heart to these children, I am a changed woman. I honestly think about these children every single day and I believe (and hope) that will not change - ever. I will always think of and pray for and advocate for these children. They are all good and perfect gifts who are blessed with 47...just like Logan and they deserve a family and a chance to develop to their full potential...just like Logan. 

If you donated to Nana or any other child please know that I am so thankful and I am praying that you be abundantly blessed for caring for the orphan as we have all been commanded to do. The fundraising for these babies will likely never end since everyone cannot see the blessings of Down syndrome the way that many of us do. It does not end here as countless children still remain in orphanages. The Angel Tree fundraising continues through December 31st, but the need for funds will be ongoing.

I don't plan to stop fundraising now that we have exceeded the goal. If you meant to donate or feel a desire to do so now, please click here and select Nana or any other child that tugs at your heart.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making a difference!
