OK, the story that will knock your socks off (It sure did mine!!) Last night I received an email from an amazing woman. She shared her story with me that she had also been affected by Sam's story, in the same way it did me. As in, she felt like she was looking at her son on the screen! He would have been a perfect fit for her family, brothers that also played soccer. But it was not meant to be for them. I cried reading her email, because I can't imagine how hard that was for her, knowing how she felt about him. She loved Sam just like I do. Or does, I should say. Instead of just giving up, and trying to forget about him, she decided to contact me and offer her help. Remember the story about King Solomon and the two women with the baby? Instead of being mad, upset, and feeling hopeless, this woman, M (she wishes to remain anonymous) decided to help. She will match all donations to Sam's FSP (http://reecesrainbow.org/34247/sponsormorton, up to $2000!! Yes, I said $2000! The generosity of M doesn't stop there though! She has ALSO offered to donate a Kindle AND an 8GB iTouch for a giveway! We will start those next week, as soon as the Cricut giveaway ends on Wednesday (at noon). Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for what she is doing. There's no way I could ever repay her for what she is doing. But people are led to do amazing things for Sam. I know it isn't for us, and I wouldn't want it to be. I don't like asking for help for myself, but I don't mind one bit asking for Sam. If you feel led to help Sam get here, please consider donating. The matching period will end Wednesday, April 4th. All donations made through Reece's Rainbow are tax deductible too!
