Hey everyone, it’s Happy Girl again.
For the past couple years, I’ve been involved in the Christmas Angel Tree program from Reece’s Rainbow. You can click the links to learn more, but basically the Angel Tree program is a fundraiser, a bit similar to the Kroger version.
Every year, orphaned children with Down Syndrome aged 2 years and younger and other children are assigned to different people. From November 1st to December 31st, it is the goal of these people to $1,000 for their child.
I have done this for 3 years now, and this year part of my fundraising is through my parents’ blogs. Let me introduce to you to my child this year, Princess Rania.
Adoption in general is expensive. Adopting an overseas child with Down Syndrome is even more expensive, and it is hard for a family to commit. But as an older child with Down Syndrome, Rania’s chances to get adopted are especially slim. That’s what the Angel Tree program does: it lowers the daunting expenses and makes it easier for families to adopt. In addition, most children often find their families during the fundraising period.
In this next month of thanksgiving, I’m helping to make it easier for Rania’s future family. If you want to help too, you can click this link and donate via Paypal. Even if you can’t donate a lot, every dollar helps. Thanks for helping!
