A drop in the bucket.

Be a drop in the bucket for Maxim. Can you spare $10?

Maxim is a little boy living in a mental institution (HELLHOLE!) in Eastern Europe. He should be going to preschool, getting hugs and kisses from his mommy, getting tossed up in the air by his daddy.

All because he has Down Syndrome, he was rejected by his mommy and daddy. Because he has Down Syndrome he will never have a chance to go to school. Unless...

...his new mommy and daddy find him. Maxim is available for adoption! There is no shortage of people willing to adopt, only a shortage of funds. It costs roughly $25,000 to redeem one child through adoption.

Only by the grace of God, was Ralph born to me in the United States of America. When I learned about the sad fate of children with Down Syndrome in Eastern Europe I knew I had to do something. Will you help me?

My goal is to raise $1000 before December 31 for Maxim's adoption grant fund. If my Networked blog followers each chip in $10, that would make $800! If each of my Facebook friends chip in $10, that would be over $3000!

If you contribute $35 or more you will receive a beautiful porcelain 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 to make it possible for other families to afford the high cost of rescuing them from orphanages and mental institutions around the world!

Please be a little drop in the bucket.
