Reese's Rainbows

From Chris:

While walking in my neighborhood in early April, I saw many houses in a row with simple rainbows taped to the front doors. I commented on it to my wife, who said she’d heard there was a little girl nearby who, during the coronavirus stay-at-home order, wanted to brighten her neighbors’ lives with a rainbow. I stopped and looked around. Every house in sight had a rainbow taped to the front door. I admit I welled up a little. The time and effort it took to bless a neighbor! So simple. So child-like and sweet. 

A week later, I saw in the Rutland Herald that the anonymous girl was none other than Reese, the daughter of my customers Summer and Mark Stoutes. I contacted them and asked if they would like to try to make her rainbows more broadly available. And they got all excited.

And they said a hearty, "yes!"

And the idea of raising funds for RRMC's Covid-19 response came up.

And Reese’s Rainbows was formed.

When asked by the Herald reporter why she was doing this, she said she “wanted to spread happiness.” And she added, “Everybody was sad 'cause they didn't get to see their friends and I just thought making rainbows would make everyone better.”

I just love this kid's spirit. So as a local small business owner, I'm happy to help Reese and her family raise funds for Rutland Regional Medical Center during this pandemic.

So here's what we're doing:

For a donation of any amount (or none at all if you need...), you can  download and print on your own printer and show HOPE by proudly hanging it on your own front door.

→ Also available for your social media profile is a square or circle shaped logo for both your desktop and your cellphone!

Want to go bigger? Download Reese's Rainbow for your Facebook cover photo for your desktop computer and/or phone.

**We understand that many Vermonters are experiencing financial distress right now, so downloads are free if you need them to be.

HOWEVER...if you can afford to, we do ask that you donate generously to RRMC's Covid-19 response.

I sincerely hope you’ll catch the spirit of what Reese is trying to do: let’s spread HOPE as we endure this pandemic together and support the "quintessential" Essential Service, RRMC, in the process!
