$200 Target Card Giveaway!

Hi there! How are ya’ll? We’re doing great. We’re missing Maria, she off changing the world with YWAM, about to fly to Armenia in a week or two.

At home we’re in a good rhythem with part time homeschool with a great co-op and part time in person school with small classes. This week the kids have been making hand crafts to sell at a local handcraft faire through their homeschool group. They are making this most incredible items all on their own!

A good family photo is hard to come by for some reason, but here one from over the summer at our friend’s wedding in Tijuana.

I had Poppy’s parent teacher conference yesterday, he teacher said she is “powerful” and often turns the entire class’s mood around for the better. Now if that wasn’t spot on!

Now that it’s Christmas, I have been thinking lots about helping one children who is an orphan. I almost didn’t, I thought, everyone is strapped right now, but then I thought, why not just try?? Kids don’t often get families unless they have people in their corner, so let’s step in!

Here is Dena:

Literally with a photo like that, nothing more is needed to be said, right? Just angelic. Would I adopt her? Absolutely!

Here is her Reeces Rainbow link to read about her: https://reecesrainbow.org/childgrant/dena

Ok one more photo before I get into what’s in it for you!

Ok guys, so ANY donation amount, $5 or greater into Dena’s fund here: https://reecesrainbow.org/childgrant/dena

Screen shot that you donated and email it to me here: amybrockhaus@gmail.com and you are entered into the give-away for a $200 Target gift card!

Let’s say you have 3 kids, 2 parents, and 3 siblings, you could get them each a $25 gift–free shipping, and wham bam be done with Christmas shopping then just relax, OH ANNNNND Dena is THIS much closer to being out of a tragic institution. Adoption for children creates a radical shift for children where they are trastically less like to become homeless, trafficked or incarcerated later in life. Can we help this darling!?




Hello lovely people! Earlier this year was so special, do you guys remember when together we advocated for a tiny, bedridden boy named Pavel?

This was him when we all first saw him, just another lonely, forgotten child…

{How it started}

People donated little by little, and…

{How it’s going…}

Thank you to everyone who donated! It matters and it changes lives forever.


This year, we have the huge honor to advocate for another worthy child, who, like Pavel, is waiting in an orphanage and needs a family to thrive.

Her name is Klover.

She is the same age as our son Finley, a wonderful age full of possibilties, but not so for an orphan.

What can we do? We can do nothing, or we can do something tiny right now. We are offering a $200 Target giftcard to the people who donate to her account here: https://reecesrainbow.org/142185/klover

Any donation $10 or more, please screenshot and email to me. I will record them all and choose a winner: amy@tinygreenelephants.com


What if because of these little choices and clicks on the screen we make today, Klover next year is opening presents from her own stocking with her own family, in the safety of her own home.

Love you all so much! Also, Maria is offering a hand painted piece of art for any donations $100 or over, here are some examples you’d be able to choose from:

And just for fun, here’s another reason why children shouldn’t be in orphanages 🙂


Thank you <3

And I hope you win!


$300 Target Card Give-AWAY and two angel girls

Happy December!  We’ve been having some rainy weather and it’s been so nice to feel like we have real ‘weather’ 🙂


So, I wanted to do something FUN and would love for you to join me.  I think you would love for you to join me, too!

So if you follow me on instagram (the universal blog killer, lol) you’ve seen me post a tiny bit about two sweet girls;



(she’s like, “Hey, I’m super sweet.”)










Last year we did a drive for Pavel, a little, darling bedridden boy and he got not just ONE family, but TWO who started pursuing him.  The family furthest along is about to travel to PICK HIM UP!



So, WHY donate to either of these girls; Nelly or Amelie this time?  Other than the fact that all children are precious and need stable, loving home to grow and thrive?

Well, I’ll TELL YOU!

I did a poll as to what cool toy I could give away as a donation prize, and Nintendo Switch came up, but the poll was only 50/50.  So, I got to thinking.  I still want the Switch to be an option to win, but I also want it be flexible so someone who may donate but doesn’t want that, but obviously deserves to be rewarded…

So, long story short, we’re giving away….

(And Ellen isn’t giving it away, although she’s WELCOME to donate…Ellen?  Ellen?)

$300 Target gift card!  So YES you could be winning a Nintendo SWITCH, or just taking care of ALLLLLLL your shopping needs all together!  Win, win, win…

How to enter:

Go here: https://reecesrainbow.org/133673/amelie and donate any about (I think the rr minimum is $5)

or go here: https://reecesrainbow.org/131649/nelly and donate any amount

THEN screen shot me the receipt and email it to: amy@tinygreenelephants.com and voila, you’re entered!

It’s SUPER easy, beyond easy.  Probably spending the $300 Target card will be more time consuming than donating to these angel girls.

Who doesn’t love giving AND receiving this time of year?


LET’S DO THIS!  If one angel baby boy Pavel could get two families last year, what could these two girls get with some donations and prayers?  I don’t know, let’s find out!


Also, please share this post, even if you don’t care at all about orphans or you think kids are lame, that’s FINE!  You can STILL donate a small about and get that Target card.  In fact, please do.  You don’t have to adopt them.  But there are MANY families would would love to love these girls but the price is to high, to let’s take some chucks out of the costs together!

  1. Pray
  2. Donate
  3. Share this post
  4. Let’s get these girls out of an institution and into families!
  5. And let’s get you a Nintendo Switch (Or whatever you actually want 🙂



Anyways, love you guys.  We’ve seen miracles happen before for forgotten children when a few people band together and donate (Honestly the majority small, sweet, humble donations)

Merry Christmas!  I hope you win!  xoxo
