31 for 21 Days 16-21: Victoria (Our 2011 Christmas Angel)

This is Victoria, she turned 4 in March of this year. She is one of Reece's Rainbow's orphans. She's a beautiful little Russian princess. Victoria needs a forever family. 
Girl, born March 2007
Eyes: Gray
Hair: brown
Character: calm, sociable

Look at the size of that hairbow!  You know Miss Victoria is an orphanage favorite ;)   She has light brown hair and big blue eyes.  She is very physically active/capable and will be a wonderful daughter!
From one of our adoptive families who visited with her in December 2010:  beautiful, affectionate, active girl, much loved in the orphanage and really needs a family of her own!

This is our 3rd year being Christmas Warriors. We can't wait for our ornament to get here so we can put it on our tree.

About RR Christmas Tree:
Running from November 1-December 31 each year, the Christmas Angel Tree is our most important fundraiser.
In only five years, more than 500+ children with Down syndrome and other special needs are HOME with their "forever families" this Christmas. The vast majority of this funding comes from our Angel Tree Project each year!
Your donations and advocacy efforts turn the child on the left into the child on the right. *Just like that*. Money is the only thing keeping these children hidden away and languishing.
When you donate $35 or more, you will recieve a beautiful photo ornament of your sponsored child to hang on your tree. This is a very special way to "share Christmas" with an orphaned child, and it's a very personal and meaningful GIFT IDEA for everyone on your list. Gift cards will be sent with the ornament to your intended recipient(s). These are great for friends and family, but also for teachers, therapists, caregivers, doctors, etc. Even if you do not celebrate Christmas, our gift cards make wonderful gifts for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or any other seasonal celebration. International sponsors are welcome through Paypal.
To celebrate our 5th Anniversary, our goal for 2011 is to raise $500,000 (collectively) during this two month period. BE A WARRIOR for one child by committing to help raise $1000 or more for their adoption grant. Every penny you raise brings them one step closer to home. Use Facebook, Twitter, blogs, emails, church/work/family/friends/school to serve your chosen child. Make a larger donation for one child, or smaller donations for several children. $5 of your donation for each ornament desired will be shared with our Voice of Hope Fund, to help cover the costs of the ornaments, shipping, and Paypal fees, and to further the work of our ministry in the future. Reece's Rainbow is a true non-profit, and relies completely on private donations to this fund to remain operational, so your gifts for that are greatly appreciated throughout the year.

On November 1st I will put up the donate button for anybody who wants to donate. I will also be donating 50% of all sales I make on Monkmee Designz
