it's GO time!

Thanks to my brother for the beautiful header. Can you even believe his eyes (Anton's, not Peyton's)? How can you not fall in love with this kid? Some exciting things are on the horizon as far as fundraising goes, and I'll hopefully be able to post about that tomorrow. I'll give you a hint, it comes after Thirty. :)

Thanks for joining me here, friends. LET'S DO THIS!

  2. I'm lifting up this beautiful boy in prayer, along with all the other wonderful, brave kids affected by EB. It is amazing how God is using you and Jonah to do great things in His glory!!

  6. I've posted Anton's story on my blog with a link to this site and his Reece's Rainbow page. Praying that his forever family will be found very soon.

  7. I've been following this little guy on FB for a while and hope that your spotlight on him will help find parents (and also raise support to speed up the process!) Great job!

  9. I sell Arbonne and I earn a 30% commission. www.Arbonne.com
    I will donate all of my commission to Anton if you host an online party.
    It is all natural, botanically based products. There are vitamins, protein shakes and skin care. There is no petroleum, no dyes, no artificial fragrances, no artificial flavors and no artificial sweeteners in any of the products. They are wonderful! All I need for you to be the hostess is your contact information, then each guest needs to 1) send me a check for the amount they owe or 2) I can charge it to their credit card. Unfortunately you can't do the online ordering like the 31 party. I have to enter it into the show.

  10. Patrice, you are awesome for doing this for sweet little Anton. Please forgive me for asking, what percentage of the money raised from Reece's Rainbow, or Chipin on this site, goes right into his adoption fund? Is it 100%? Are there administrative fees taken out? Just wondering. We want to give as much as we can, we just want to be sure it's going to the right place. God bless you and this little one.

  11. @Kathleen, sorry I don't have an email for you. Feel free to email me at momtobabyjonut@gmail.com with any questions. I emailed the folks at RR for this info but you might could find it on their website. The Chip In links directly to his PayPal account so I know there is a PayPal fee, but other than that I'm not sure. You can also donate by check to avoid that fee. If you go to the "contact" page on RR, you can find that address.

  13. @Kathleen, they contacted me back. 90% goes to the child's fund, 10% goes to Voice of Hope which pays staff, office supplies, PayPal fees etc. You can see what that includes here: http://reecesrainbow.org/sponsorship/voiceofhope
