Do you tweet or twitter or chirp?

Or whatever it's called. Well, I don't.  Until today. But I joined Twitter today for a good reason!  Patricia Heaton, the actress from Everybody Loves Raymond, has said that she will donate $1 for every follower of Reece's Rainbow up to $10,000!!  So, if you're on Twitter, or even if you're not, will you please follow @reecesrainbow and help spread the word!  As of this writing, RR has over 1,200 followers. Let's get those numbers up!  Not only for the financial benefit, but to spread the word so these children can get maximum exposure and find families!

This is what Patricia has said about Reece's Rainbow:

"I know there can be big pitfalls to social media, but I will be forever grateful to the tweeter who alerted me to the work of Reece's Rainbow.  I clicked on a link to see the faces of those little neglected angels who have passed on, and immediately started weeping.  It was so heartbreaking.  Sometimes we feel helpless in the face of such horror, but because of the example of Andrea Roberts, we see that, with a lot of hard work and perseverance, there is something we can do.
Between work and family, I don't have a lot of time.  But I do have financial means and a public profile.  God charges us to use our circumstances, whatever they may be, to share His love with the world.  I had just hit the 10,000 mark for Twitter followers, and the idea hit me - give $10,000 dollars - one dollar for every "Tweaton" who follows Reece's Rainbow.  Accomplish supporting this great organization along with spreading awareness. So far, in a few hours, RR has about 500 new followers, and I hope many more to come.  
I am involved in supporting various charitable organizations, but I have recently been asking God to show me where he wants me to be.  I think Reece's Rainbow is an answer to that prayer.  These kids have had very few people to be their voice, but Andrea Roberts has changed all that. I am so grateful to be a part of her work."

  1. M - I can use all the help I can get advocating for beautiful Josephine! Consider yourself my partner, and I'm open ears to any ideas you have to help raise money for her fund! I love her with all my heart thought I've never met her... I so want this child to have a family to call her own and know the love she deserves.
