A local non-profit is throwing a huge blowout to help bring a special needs girl home to Kentucky. The Rawe family of Campbell County is adopting a baby with Down Syndrome from Eastern Europe and the journey to get her to her new home won’t be easy. The Rawes knew that their family wasn’t complete and after suffering a series of miscarriages, they turned to the website Reece’s Rainbow. It was there that they learned some staggering statistics. Thousands of children across Europe and Asia are put up for adoption because they’re born with Down Syndrome. It was on that site that they found their little girl.
“It was kind of like, ‘oh, I think she’s ours’,” said Jackie Rawe.
Then the daunting cost of getting the little girl here began to set in. That is where Brack Duncan and Josh come in. The pair founded the non-profit Buddies of the Bluegrass, to raise money for Kentucky families adopting children with special needs. It just so happens that Brack was already thinking of throwing an event for Josh.
They are putting on an event with Kentucky musicians to raise the $20,000 to bring the Rawe’s little girl home. The event will include an ‘America’s Next Top Model’ alum.
This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
