I wanted to get involved with helping less fortunate kids in some of the places I’ll pass through, so when I ran across Free Wheelchair Mission, it sounded like an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.
This organization arranges the manufacture and supply of thousands of low-cost wheelchairs for those who couldn’t otherwise afford a chair, and works with distribution partners in areas all over the world to get the chairs to those in need. To date, they’ve supplied almost 900,000 wheelchairs in over 90 countries, but there are many millions of people who still need wheelchairs. The cost of one of their chairs is only $77.91. If you can afford to donate any amount to Free Wheelchair Mission in support of my ride around the world, I strongly encourage you to do so. I’m hoping that in addition to bringing awareness to this great cause, I will be able to contribute my time and hands-on skills somewhere along the way.
I’ve created a fundraising page with a goal to raise enough money for 250 wheelchairs by the time my trip around the globe is over. Help me get started today.
