who support and donate to Rita’s Rainbows


Here is a quote from Color Vibe Designs January 2013 newsletter. We are grateful beyond words for this most generous gift. “Recently, I was inspired by an organization called Rita’s Rainbows. Rita was an artist, a poet, and most of all, a warm and caring girl who died too soon. Her work remains for us all to enjoy and the nonprofit formed in her name provides charitable assistance and programs that benefit children and teens in need. It makes me happy to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every scarf in my Rainbow Collection to Rita’s Rainbows. I am deeply touched by their dedication to making life better for the most vulnerable among us.”
