Sweet, 4-year-old Olga was born in Eastern Europe where babies with Down syndrome are deemed unacceptable at birth. Next month, when she turns 5, she will be transferred to a mental institution. Forever.
If it turns your stomach to hear about children like Olga, I understand. If you're thinking: I want to rescue Olga from that life! then Praise God for you!
If you're thinking: I'd love to help, but I can't adopt her! then praise God for you too!
Are you familiar with Reece's Rainbow? RR is an international Down Syndrome orphan ministry that provides adoption grants for children most in need of families.
Patti, the mother of 10, her youngest with Down Syndrome, is hosting a MASSIVE giveaway for Olga's sake. She's going to be giving away a $35 scrapbook kit, two $15 iTunes cards, a $100 Macy's gift card, an iPod touch, and a whole lot more (honestly I lost count of all that's been donated).
AND GUESS WHAT?!
She has already raised $12,549 just for Olga!!
Here's what you do:
- Go to Reece's Rainbow and give to Olga
- Go to Patti's blog and let her know that you did.
- You can enter her giveaway up to 5 times! (See how at the bottom of her post)
*I didn't write the most important post ever written; I just restated it. For Olga's sake.
** Note: Olga's page on Reece's Rainbow is static. Her grant total has to be updated manually. The amount above is the most current.
UPDATE: A family has now stepped up to adopt Olga!! Praise the Lord!
