Ruby’s Rainbow: Making Dreams come TRUE

 

By donating to Ruby’s Rainbow, you are helping students with Down syndrome go for their dreams of higher education and independence!

When Melinda Lindner released her recording of “Over the Rainbow” in April 2021, she knew she wanted to do something to support an extra special community – so she decided to raise funds for Ruby’s Rainbow, a nonprofit organization that awards scholarships to students with Down syndrome to help them achieve their dreams of higher education and independence!

When you donate to Ruby’s Rainbow, purchase your download of “Over the Rainbow” or add the song to your playlist on your music streaming service of choice, you’re giving the gift of a dream.

More About Ruby’s Rainbow

Ruby’s Rainbow is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization inspired by a little girl named Ruby who was born with an unexpected extra 21st chromosome. Finding out she had Down syndrome did not change her family’s expectations for her future, and they vowed to give her every opportunity they could to learn, grow, flourish and become an important contributor to society and the community. Through these expectations came the desire to help others “rockin’ that extra chromosome” on their journey toward higher education and independence.

The goal and mission at Ruby’s Rainbow is to grant scholarships to adults with Down syndrome who are seeking post-secondary education, helping them achieve their dreams of higher education while spreading awareness of their capabilities and general awesomeness!
