To put into perspective the differences in grants on Reece's Rainbow between the younger (0-5) and older (6+) children - for the younger age group, there are 310 children listed who have donation buttons (76 are waiting for more information before they can accept donations). Out of that 310 - 42 of them have zero in their account.
Now look at the older children - 283 listed, with 241 with donation buttons. How many zeros ? More than HALF - 138 children in the older age groups have absolutely nothing in their grants. Nothing. Zero. Zip. Nil.
Sad. What can we do ? If I could, I'd donate to every single child and get rid of every single zero. If I could, I'd donate so much that every single child is fully funded. If I could....but I can't. I give what I can, when I can. All I can do is ask for help - for a few dollars here, a few dollars there - it really doesn't take much, if you think about it. I'm NOT asking anyone to fully fund a child - that's just crazy. All I ask is that we get rid of all the zeros in the older age groups. Go to Reece's Rainbow, look at the waiting children in the 6-9 and 10+ age groups, and look at the faces. Read their stories. Imagine your child living without a family forever. Give a little. Help save a life. Skip your morning coffee, give that money to one of the listed children. It's easy.
