Forgive me, but I digress.
This season I am helping to sponsor the international adoption of a child with Down’s Syndrome through an organization called Reese’s Rainbow. There are many families who want to adopt, but the costs can be prohibitive and there are currently 200 children around the world waiting for families. Reese’s Rainbow is a a registered 501(c)3 charity which promotes and facilitates the international adoption and rescue of children with Down’s Syndrome in particular. While it is a faith-based organization, it is not legally affliliated with any church, there are no faith based restrictions on the donations and families of all faiths are welcome to adopt.
During the Christmas Angel Tree project, the charity receives donations from people of all faiths all over the world. So even if you don’t celebrate Christmas your gift can still save a life.
So if you were thinking of getting me a present (or even if you weren’t!), the best gift you could possibly give me is to help a child who desperately needs a home.
