Connecting The Rainbow

I am so very pleased to announce that Connecting The Rainbow received a donation of $5,000!!!!!
If you are not familiar with CTR, it is an outreach of Reece's Rainbow that provides support, materials and education to families in Eastern Europe that have chosen to parent their children with Down syndrome. The ultimate mission of Reece's Rainbow has always been
for there to be no need for Reece's Rainbow to exist.
Connecting The Rainbow is one of the many ways that we work to help make that happen, by supporting families that are going against the "norms" of their society and choosing to raise their children with Down syndrome as members of their family and their community.

The money that was given to CTR will be used to buy the remainder of the items requested by the families in Bulgaria. It will be used to purchase speech therapy supplies, educational toys/activities and a math curriculum! We have been invited to return to Bulgaria in March to conduct a mini-conference for families and professionals in Bulgaria and the beginning stages of planning this are in the works. There will be more information about this coming later this week, along with a list of all the volunteers that we're going to need to go with us in order to accomplish everything that we hope to do in March.

So, big things are happening with Connecting The Rainbow! Though the CTR blog has been silent, please don't think that the work has stopped behind the scenes. We have several things going on to continue to assist the families in Bulgaria and several new opportunities in UKRAINE that we will be sharing soon too. If you haven't, please make sure to subscribe to the CTR blog so that you can stay up to date on what's going on and ways that you can help. You can also join us on facebook.
