"I’ve said it before and I will say it again: this is not an issue just for adoptive families to take up. I met a gal this weekend who told me she was interested in advocating for orphans, but she felt she couldn’t because she hadn’t adopted herself. If there is one message I wish I could impart to everyone who reads here, it’s this: kids without family need advocates. ALL OF US should be advocating for them. Yes, even you." --Kristen Howerton
I have good news for you. Thanks to the internet, its now very easy to find some way, any way, to help orphans. I've put some of those ways together in a list. All of these ways involve Reece's Rainbow, but you can apply most of them to any organization that helps orphans.
1) Donate to a waiting child or family. Even $5 here and there can help. It doesn't have to be much.
2) Become a Prayer Warrior. It's as easy as sending an email. You simply commit to praying for a specific child every day until he or she comes home.
3) Become a Guardian Angel. It's like a prayer warrior but with the added commitment of fundraising and raising awareness. It's basically what I'm doing with this blog. If I can do it, anybody can.
4) Use facebook and twitter. Find a waiting child's profile, copy and paste the url into a facebook status, and you've officially found the easiest way in the world to raise awareness.
5) Blog about different kids.
6) Get some awareness materials.
7) Do your searches through goodsearch.com. Select Reece's Rainbow as your charity.
And there you go. Let me know if you come up with anything that I haven't mentioned. Now let's get to helping children!
