To help offset the approximately $45,000 we are going to need to get Brock home, Reece’s Rainbow sets up funds for each child and their adoptive families for people to donate to. Brocks reached $461 in a short time, which we are so very grateful for! Every dollar brings our little boy closer to his loving family and further away from a life in an orphanage, or worse yet, an adult mental institution where he would go when he turned 5.
I looked at his fund two days ago, and to my surprise, his fund made an incredible $2000 jump! Wow! I couldn’t imagine where or who it could have came from. Then, I found out, and I was floored! I simply have no words for how blessed we are feeling right now!
The fourth and fifth graders at Haw Creek Elementary in Cumming, Georgia do a fundraiser every year to raise funds to donate to Reece’s Rainbow. They pick a boy and a girl to donate the money to, and Brock was the boy they chose! I spoke with the teacher in charge, (I wanted to name her, but wasn’t sure if she would want me too!) to give her a big thank you! She told me that this is something they do every year. She gives the students 3 weeks to raise money. Many parents donate, but some of these kids sell things, have lemonade stands, and even give their birthday money! They raised over $4000 in those three weeks. Simply amazing!
