Zane Robert O'Donnell and Sydnee Abigail O'Donnell were born-into-heaven in 2016 & 2018 respectively at six months along of pregnancy due to IUGR complications. They were both delivered at Edward Hospital in Naperville, Illinois. The Zane and Sydnee cause was started by Ruth Omanya while coping with grief after several miscarriages and children loss. She had intended to run and registering Zane & Sydnee as a non-profit organization, but struggled with the most positive way to go about it without reopening painful wounds.

 

It wasn't until 2021 when she was introduced to a children's foundation in Kenya called Modi Nereah Foundation that nurtures and educates orphans. It was an "Aha!" moment. Ruth immediately chose to get involved with this children's foundation  as a volunteer web designer, and soon after became their USA Hope Ambassador. She also actively sponsored a child through their "sponsor a child program"  for a whole year including major financial contributions to their 2021 annual fundraiser. As their web designer, the progress photos she received to edit the foundation's blog were uplifting and empowering. This experience helped in her decision to combined her love for entrepreneurship and philanthropy to form RHO FOUNDATION CORP to help raise funds to support its initiatives. ZANE & SYDNEE ™ became a perfect fit for one of those initiatives!

 

Today, ZANE & SYDNEE ™ is dedicated in creating IUGR awareness while raising funds for research and to improve IUGR treatment and care. Other initiatives include feeding  impacted and grieving families during their loss, donating tiny threads for SGA babies, medical bills, funeral assistance, prescription medication discounts, and more!

 

Through merchandise sales,  ZANE & SYDNEE ™ brings quality and beautiful children's clothing, gifts, and home goods to customers. Sponsors are always welcome to start fundraising events around the products offered through ZANE & SYDNEE ™ to support the cause within their organizations annually. RHO FOUNDATION CORP, allocates ZANE & SYDNEE ™'s donations, sales, and proceeds from fundraiser events to help improve the lives of those impacted by IUGR complications and pregnancy loss. Where these basic needs are met annually, funds are allocated to more of "Basic Needs Project", including the underprivileged children's initiatives.
