*Please read - help save lives with just a few clicks!

Imagine if you could help save a child's life with just a few clicks of your mouse and two minutes of your time... you can!

Reece's Rainbow is an organization that works to save the lives of children with Down syndrome who are currently living in orphanages all over the world.

Even in the 21st century, the majority of children with Down syndrome are either prenatally aborted here in the US or hidden away in foreign orphanages and mental institutions. This travesty is a HOLOCAUST in every sense of the word. Donations to Reece's Rainbow are raised as adoption grants, so American families can afford the high cost of adopting these children and rescue them from life and death in a mental institution.

There are forever families wanting, hoping and praying for the opportunity to adopt these children, they just need help with the adoption expenses.

Reece's Rainbow is currently in the running for a $1.5 grant which would cover $20,000 grants for each of the 100 waiting children currently on the website. The project is run by American Express and a general overview is found here:

Reece's Rainbow has collected nominations to bring it up pretty quickly in the running, but needs to be in the top 25 by September 1st to be in the running for any of the top 5 places, thus receiving between $100,000 and $1.5 million in donations toward their project.

If RR makes the top 25, then each day every person that has an American Express card will then be able to vote to continue to get RR to the top of the charts. For now, to get to the top 25, we just need visibility and ANYONE can nominate- with or without a card of your own.

So please click here to go nominate Reece's Rainbow and help save lives. Lots of lives.
