Patricia Heaton and Reece's Rainbow

As far as I know actress Patricia Heaton has no connection to the Down syndrome community. At least until today she didn't.

Recently someone on Twitter alerted her to Reece's Rainbow. She checked out the website. She saw all those faces. Her heart melted. She cried at their plight. She wanted to do something to help raise funds and awareness.

Excerpt from her Facebook page:
I am involved in supporting various charitable organizations, but I have recently been asking God to show me where he wants me to be.  I think Reece's Rainbow is an answer to that prayer.  These kids have had very few people to be their voice, but Andrea Roberts has changed all that. I am so grateful to be a part of her work.

Patricia Heaton put a call out on Twitter for people to follow Reece's Rainbow. For every follower she is donating $1, up to $10K.

How awesome is that?! I say that is Social Media at its finest!

If you tweet, please follow Reece's Rainbow and help Patricia Heaton get to that goal of 10K followers!

Hey whatever happened to Rhett's blog? Looks like she took it down. Gee, I'll miss the never ending hints at asking for money and her constant sob stories of her own supposed medical needs. What a phoney!
