This is one post that, though it's long, it's WORTH THE READ! Please see how you can be a part of the Angel Tree Project, find the perfect gift for people, and how you can get your own free calendar as well!
It's November 1st!! Today is the kickoff of the annual Reece's Rainbow Angel Tree Project! Visit http://www.reecesrainbow.org/angeltree2008.htm to view all of the beautiful children in ONE PLACE and to have the opportunity to sponsor these children in honor of family members, friends, or coworkers!
The Angel Tree is Reece's Rainbow's largest fundraiser of the year and there's a great reason why. For each donation of $35 or more to any one child you will be mailed a beautiful ornament with your sponsored child's photo on it. These ornaments are the perfect gift for teachers, coworkers, friends, family, and all those hard-to-buy-for people. Not only do they receive a keepsake, but the knowledge that their gift went toward a wonderful cause- helping an orphan to come HOME.
The children shown on the Angel Tree page are all UNMATCHED children who do not yet have a family (but as the tree continues children will be marked 'matched' as their families find them and commit to their adoption!). Also, it's important to note that every dollar that you donate to any child goes directly to their sponsorship! Paypal, ornament costs and shipping are all paid for by Reece's Rainbow and are not deducted from your donation. Reece's Rainbow is glad to say that every penny goes toward that child's grant fund in hopes that they will soon have a "forever family" commit to their adoption and bring them home.
The Angel Tree Project runs from November 1st-December 31st and all donations made by December 15th will receive an ornament gift (donations after this date will still be shown on the Angel Tree page but will not receive an ornament). We welcome international donors and we will also ship the ornaments internationally!
In addition to the Angel Tree Project, Reece's Rainbow is happy to offer you a free 12 month calendar that you can download and include with your ornament as an additional gift this Christmas. Each month features a different "currently" available child (we hope that by the end of the year the calendar has all MATCHED children on it!) and is available in two formats. The first is 12cm and when printed is the size of a CD case. This is a great office calendar size and perfect for gift-giving :) The second is a .jpg format which can be printed in many different sizes or used in documents each month if you want to distribute them monthly. A HUGE THANK YOU to Lu that donated her time and talents to make this calendar!
Here's a preview of the calendar:
