ZANE & SYDNEE ™ initiatives focus on online retail store sales of children’s clothing, gifts, and home goods to raise money for IUGR Awareness and research, while RHO PANTRY™ initiatives focus on its food brand sales and donations to bring food as a basic need to in need pre-teen children around the world.

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 I was introduced to a children's foundation in Kenya called Modi Nereah Foundation that nurtures and educates orphans. It was an "Aha!" moment. I immediately chose to get involved with this children's foundation  as a volunteer web designer, and soon after became their USA Hope Ambassador.


I 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 I received to edit the foundation's blog were uplifting and empowering. This experience played a role in helping me decide to combined my love for entrepreneurship and philanthropy to form RHO FOUNDATION, CORP., to help raise funds to support its initiatives. ZANE & SYDNEE ™  & RHO PANTRY™ and "Basic Needs Project" became the perfect fits for the foundation's 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!


Soon, through merchandise sales,  ZANE & SYDNEE ™  is brining 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 ™ site to support the cause within their organizations annually. RHO FOUNDATION, CORP., allocates ZANE & SYDNEE ™'s donations through sales and proceeds from fundraising events to benefit the lives of those impacted by IUGR complications and pregnancy loss.
