Warriors on this Fatherless Friday

REECE'S RAINBOW WARRIORS ARE WELL NAMED.

Yesterday morning there were (by my count) 60 children who were in the UNDER 500.00 category on the Reece's Rainbow Angel Tree.

SIXTY BABES

  


Go look at the Reece's Rainbow Angel Tree now.

THEY ALL MOVED UP TO THE OVER $500 CATEGORY.

Every. Single. One. Of. Them.

 

EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM MOVED TO THE OVER $500 CATEGORY OR BEYOND!!

SIXTY CHILDREN MOVED!

 

How?

Two days ago, some generous donors issued a challenge: For every child in the under $500 category who bumped up to the over $500 category within the next 24 hours, they agreed to donate enough money to bump another child from the over $500 category into the over $1000 category.

When I first heard the announcement, I was skeptical.

 


For one thing, there were 60 children in the under $500 category, and MOST of them needed hundreds of dollars to get to the next level.


  


But I facebooked about it, and then I spent the day cleaning our house, getting ready for Christmas, cooking, baking and

RELOADING THE ANGEL TREE PAGE EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES, ALL DAY.


  


Watching.  Laughing.  Sharing with Rob what was happening.

It was awesome to behold.

People rallied from all over to get those 60 babes up to the next level.

And one by one, the kids who were closest to the $1,000 wall were jumping over that wall.

 


Reece's Rainbow's Angel Tree Warriors are well named.

Like warriors, they battled all day to get EVERY SINGLE CHILD over that  $500.00 hump.


  


I STAND AND APPLAUD the generous donors who offered the challenge.  

Whoever you are, you helped many, many babes to get over that $1,000 wall, at a cost of uncounted thousands of dollars!

YOU ROCK for inspiring thousands to stand in the gap for the babes who were being left behind!!

THANK YOU!!

 

And to All the RR Warriors out there....

YOU HUMBLE ME!!

THANK YOU FOR BEING WARRIORS FOR THE LEAST OF THESE!!

P.S.  

All the children on this page are in the 500 + category.... There are 85 who still need to jump the 1000 wall before January 1st.  If you want to help them jump.... You can click here...

It has definitely been a wild ride on the Angel Tree this year!!!
