This year, Rainbow Foundation is once again going to tackle the impossible; we're going to provide "financial first aid" to hundreds of New Jersey kids and their families, quickly, without a lot of red tape. With dignity, compassion and love.
We've got to. Because if we said no, there would literally be no place else for these beleaguered families to turn. Since Rainbow Foundation was born in 1984, we've provided on-the-spot help to well over 20,000 youngsters - in almost as many forms! We've paid hospital and medical bills, arranged transportation for both extraordinary surgeries and ongoing treatments, donated wheelchairs and prosthetic devices, bought air conditioners for children with Cystic Fibrosis, made cash grants to families in dire need...and the list goes on and on.
While our work is gratifying beyond compare and there are plenty of plaudits for both our Foundation and the contributors - one thing is painfully certain: we could easily distribute ten times the funds we have. Hopefully that's where you or your company can make a difference this year. Frankly, we hope we can tug at your heart strings a little and demonstrate just how responsible we can act as custodian for some of your precious charitable dollars.
If you'll only give us a chance, you'll see how your generosity can have a direct, personal impact that will improve the quality of life for desperately ill kids right here in New Jersey. In lots of cases, that's the only break they'll get. And that, you see, is why we call the Rainbow Foundation a love story. It takes your help - but you've got the power to give it a happy ending.
