Okay, fine- enough transportation metaphors.
Yesterday I shared this couple's story over on the fan page and today I'm here to get you PUMPED about helping a sweet little boy with cerebral palsy bust out of his Eastern European orphanage for good and come home with his forever family.
This is Brett:
HERE'S THE DEAL:
In just 2 weeks his potential forever family is traveling to Europe to adopt another child, a child they've been planning to adopt for a long time. If they can raise just $3500 more, they can bring Brett home as well. That is good news.
The REALLY good news is that there is a magical $1,000 matching grant waiting out there for Brett, which means that every dollar up to $1,000 that is donated right now will be doubled.
You guys. We have 6 days to raise enough money for Brett to finally have a real home and to experience the love that only a family can provide.
What money were you planning to spend in the next 6 days that you can forego? If there's nothing you can spare (and I know, sometimes there really, really isn't), please pray. Share his story. Do whatever you can to be a part of a miracle.
And just in case you're wondering: when you're donating, the money is going through Reece's Rainbow and is allocated directly to Brett, so you can be sure that your generosity is being applied where intended.
So, go! Here is Brett's page. You can read more about him and donate in the same place. Once his grant amount reaches $11,713.75, it means the entire matching grant has been met. I believe we can do it! This community has come together and brought other children home already. Let's make it happen again.
ETA: We have met the amount to get the matching grant. Now let's hit $14K so that boy can be fully funded and come HOME!
