Teamwork Tuesday: Abbott!!

This week, we bring to you the first of our Christmas Angels-- Abbott!!

Abbott is a sweet 5 year old boy in Eastern Europe with Down Syndrome.  He's already reached that horrible Magic Number, and has been transferred to an adult mental institution.  Oh, my heart!  Look at those sweet, sweet eyes.  Here's what we know from Reece's Rainbow about Abbott:

Abbott is a child with whom everyone falls in love immediately! He is a very kind and very cheerful child! He easily finds common language with adults and children. Abbott understands how to properly play with the different kind of toys and loves to play. He is not speaking yet but he is easily understood.  Abbott is an active child.  He likes to run, walk and see new places.
Recently he has been transferred to an institution and nobody knows how he is now.

Abbott is blessed, though.  He has this AMAZING Christmas Warrior, Frankie.  Frankie is a true saint, and she's got some wonderful fundraisers going on for Abbott.  

OK, first, Frankie has an online shop called Hooked for Hope, where she donates a MINIMUM of 25% of every sale to Abbott.  Let me tell you, I have one of Frankie's products, an adorable little gnome.  She's good!

Frankie is also having a run/walk-a-thon called Trekking for Abbott.  You can pledge per mile that Frankie runs or walks, and she's doing a REALLY good job with keeping up on it! 

Also, Abbott has a matching grant right now!!!  When he reaches $438 in his Angel Tree fund, an extra $200 will be sent in!!  Praise God!!

Please pray this Christmas Season about donating to Abbott.  Like all of our Christmas Angels, his Warrior, Frankie, has committed to raising a minimum of $1,000 for him.  This is a huge undertaking.  Reece's Rainbow offers a beautiful Christmas Ornament for your tree when you send in $35 or more, so please, be generous!!  

As we stalk our TVs right now and obsess over exit polls, let's not forget, there are real kids out there who really need us, and they need us now.  We can't afford to ignore them, even for a moment.
