In the spirit of the holiday season, I thought I'd offer a fun way for you to give for a worth cause and receive something for your child in return.
For a donation of just $10, your child will receive a personalized, handwritten letter from Santa. It will be arrive on holiday themed paper with a special message just for your child. Imagine your child's excitement as (s)he gets a piece of mail from Santa!
This also could make a great gift for for a niece, nephew, cousin, or any other child in your life.
Best of all, the proceeds from these letters will go to help kids without families of their own.
TO RECEIVE A LETTER FROM SANTA:
Click the ChipIn (see sidebar) and donate $10 per letter you would like to receive; then
Click HERE to fill out the form with your child's information.
WANT MORE THAN ONE LETTER?
To receive a Santa letter for more than one child, you can make one donation ($10 per letter) and fill out multiple forms (one for each of your children). Plus, don't forget, with a single donation of $35 by December 15th, you will also receive an ornament from the Reece's Rainbow Angel Tree. Please specify if you have a preference of the money going to the Older Girls' account or Older Boys' account.
The "Big Family" Discount: For those of you who want to contribute but would have to skip a mortgage payment to get all your little ones their letters (haha), feel free to email me to "negotiate" a different donation amount! Every donation will help these kids, and that is the important part.
WE DON'T CELEBRATE SANTA BUT MY CHILD WOULD LIKE A LETTER
If you do not celebrate Christmas or Santa, but would still like to donate and receive a holiday letter for your child, I'm happy to modify the letter for you! When filling out the form, just make a note in the "Words that Describe My Child" box letting me know your holiday tradition. I will happily send a personalized letter, and your child will still experience the excitement that comes with receiving a special letter in the mail!
WHO WILL RECEIVE THE MONEY?
Reece's Rainbow has a grant account set up for all of the orphans with Down Syndrome. This particular fundraiser will go toward two sets of children: Older Boys, and Older Girls. Sadly, these children are the last to be adopted, and therefore, it isn't effective to set up individual grants for each child. Instead, the money for these children is set up in one account, and when a family chooses to adopt any of the children on the list, all of the money in the grant will be put toward that child's adoption expenses.
