Many ask, “What are some needs Rainbow Town has right now?” We have compiled a list of both ongoing and one-time needs for Ma Feeta and the children. Would you consider linking arms with us and providing for these incredible children and their brave caretaker, Ma Feeta?
You can truly make a difference. Here’s how:
- On our store website, you can give a bicycle, a textbook set, a toiletries package, high school education, or college education. You will receive a personalized certificate in the mail.
- Donate through Paypal and give a tax-deductible gift to the ongoing effort to help each Rainbow Town child achieve their unique career goals. You can give in your name or the name of a friend or family member.
- Original art, bullet crosses, and more one-of-a-kind gifts are also on our online store. All proceeds go directly to the Rainbow Town effort.
17-year-old smiling-all-the-time Moses Kolleh died on November 13th from Lassa fever, a treatable disease. In Liberia, however, necessary diagnosis is often slow and medication is sparse or non-existent. In honor of a life well-lived and cut so drastically short, SHINE announces the initiation of the Moses Kolleh Memorial Fund. All donations will help the children receive medical care in a timely fashion. Two of the older kids are in need of medical care as we speak. Can you contribute to Moses’s fund? You can do so at the online store. We lost Moses too soon, but his memorial can protect his brothers and sisters.

A team of five flew to W. Africa to visit Rainbow Town. Trip highlights include: getting to know the unique story and personality of each child through a story-writing project, building a latrine, setting up a small chicken farm, giving the children new bikes and soccer gear, checking the children’s progress in classes, laughing with Mother Feeta, and spending time on the beach with the Rainbow Town college students. See photos from the trip on the Rainbow Town Facebook page.
30 Chances to Impact a Life.
For the month of September, each day you’ll have a chance to impact the lives of the Rainbow Town children by purchasing, promoting and sharing their artwork. 100% of all proceeds will go to their educational needs. It’s ART 4 SCHOOL.
First, we’ll feature a painting and the Rainbow Town child who created it.
Then, it’s your chance to impact a life! Fun ways to make a difference:
- Purchase a painting for your home, classroom, church, or business!
- Have a birthday in September? Challenge people to purchase your birthday’s painting.
- Challenge your sorority, youth group, class, team, or any other group to fundraise and purchase a painting.
- Choose a painting and promote to all your Facebook friends, Twitter followers to encourage people to join the ART 4 SCHOOL campaign and purchase.
Our goal is to sell all 30 paintings by September 30th, which will keep teachers in Rainbow Town’s primary school as well as pay for high school and college tuition.
Every dollar counts. Continued, quality education will enable the Rainbow Town children to emerge out of poverty, achieve their educational dreams, and reach for their fullest potential.
That’s 30 days, featuring 30 paintings giving you 30 chances to impact a life!
Join the ART4SCHOOL Campaign on Facebook! “Like” the Rainbow Town Facebook page and follow each day, each painting and each opportunity to impact a life this September!
