31 August, 2012.
This is a big day around here. Not just because of the Blue Moon either! Though we all are anticipating a LOT of things getting done (everything that only happens once in a blue moon), we are all very excited about one very important thing that has happened today!

with Isabelle Spitz, one of the children who found a family
through Reece's Rainbow!
That's right, the big 4-0! Of course, 40 is the new 20, isn't it? ;)
We are all honoured to be working alongside her on this journey that I don't think I'm speaking out of turn to say that none of us probably envisioned this as our life's work when we were young. It is a blessing to be a part of this organisation that Andrea has begun.
- In only 6 years, 750+ children have found their forever families thanks to Reece's Rainbow.
- We've disbursed close to $4 million dollars in grant funds
- We have helped children in 26 countries
- There are over 800 kids waiting to be found, ready and available to be adopted on our website
Today, in honor of Reece's Rainbow founder Andrea Roberts birthday today, a donor has come forth and committed $1 for every new "Like" of RODS Racing for the entire day today! Because of Andrea's work, over 750 orphans with Down syndrome have a home!
If you haven't heard about RODS Racing, be sure to have a look around their page to learn more! Brady Murray is a great supporter of Reece's Rainbow and we're so thankful for this opportunity!
