Some would say our family is doing it's part. We're going and bringing home two little boys. It's not enough. It will never be enough as long as there are children waiting for families in dark and lonely places. As long as there are children tied to beds, left to sit in their own waste for hours, existing on little to no food. It will never be enough. Not this side of Heaven.
My heart cries out for the day when Jesus will make all the sad things come untrue. When He will ride in as a white knight on horse, the hero come to save the world. Until then, He has
Back to Bernadette, my friend, Julia, called her a Sunshine Girl. Julia got it right!
This Sunshine Girl needs a family, desperately, urgently needs a family. She is going to spend every day of the rest of her life in a mental institution if she is not chosen by November.
I have seen our community rally around a child, I know we CAN, but will we? Will we look at this sweet sunshine girl and say to the world that she has value, worth, that we will not allow her to spend the rest of her days in an institution?
I don't have much to offer, but here's what we're prepared to do. For every person who donates $10 or more to Bernadette's grant, you will be entered to win a Brand New Kindle Fire from Amazon.
You can also earn an entry by sharing this giveaway on facebook or your blog! Help us spread the word that Bernadette needs a family, NOW!
This is the link to Bernadette's Reece's Rainbow grant. Leave me a comment and let me know you donated, if you'd like an entry for the Kindle Fire. Her grant is at $372.30, right now. A full grant is $20,000. Let's see how close we can get in 2 weeks, this giveaway will end on March 3rd or when Bernadette is fully funded (yes, I did have the audacity to say that)!
I'm hoping to have a button on the sidebar of the blog that will link you directly to Bernadette sometime today. So keep watching the right hand side bar.
Update: I'm adding a chip-in to the right hand side for Bernadette. If you use it there's no need to leave a comment, I'll be able to see who's giving. It is linked to Bernadette's Reece's Rainbow grant and is still tax-deductible. It will just take a few days to show up in Bernadette's grant, because Michelle at RR has to enter it manually. If you'd rather use the grant, just be sure to leave a comment so I can get you entered to win.
