GIVE AWAY: Uniting Alexander with his Forever Family

That's right folks, we are on a mission here.

Some of you may remember this handsome guy:

Alexander (AJ)

If not, then read here or here..

Sweet Alexander is the son of his Forever Family the Taylors.  They love him with all of their hearts and yet, they have never met him.  They desperately want to see him, hold him, hug him.

However, Alexander is many countries and an ocean away. . .

In a mental institution.

All because he has Down syndrome.

Like my little Ellie Bear.

I have written it many times before about the cruel conditions of these institutions.  Dear Alexander is now too old (he is 6yo) for the baby orphanage and he has been moved to a much more horrific environment.

There is hope!  The Taylors are hosting a totally awesome "More Bang for Your Buck" Give Away in hopes of raising the funds needed to rescue Alexander.  The give away runs from 5/16-5/30.

A Donation that is tax deductible?  Yep (unless you use Chip-In)!  A chance to win something cool?  You betcha!  A chance to save a child's life?  Absolutely!!!!

Here is how to make a difference:

Visit the Taylor's blog to see what is up for grabs as well as how to enter the give away.

Or, if you are short on funds, repost the Taylor's blog or repost my blog and spread the word.  The more people who know, the bigger chance we have a making a difference. . . a change. . . *does not enter you into the give away*

Or, get down on those knees and pray (or have thoughts about Alexander and his forever family if you are nonreligious). *does not enter you into the give away*

I am honestly not kidding when I say a life is at stake here.  It truly is life or death.  Some of these orphans do become angels, literally.  Whether it be from medical neglect or general neglect.  Time is of essence.  Need more proof: Reece's Rainbow's In-Loving-Memory Page
