We're raising 8,000 to go towards the purchase of a new wheelchair because this child needs a new one so she can stand up.
Whats the problem we're trying to solve?
Leisha is a 12 year old child with Cerebral Palsy, she needs a new wheelchair to help her become more independent at school and home, the new Etac 800 power chair will give Leisha a new lease of life, and be able to interact more with her school friends. she has now grown out of her present junior chair and needs the new one now.
Why do we care about this project?
Leisha is an outgoing child held back by a disability, she has an ambition to become a teacher in the future. The power chair will allow her to interact with other people at their level as the chair can be used in a standing position. Leisha will be more independent being able to carry out those tasks we take for granted (hanging up her coat on her peg, picking the dropped pen from the floor. Leisha deserves the chance to enjoy life to the full and this chair will help that.
How will the money be spent?
All the monies raised will go towards the purchase of the new 21k Etac 800 series power chair. Any money donated over the purchase price will be placed into a trust account, to cover servicing and repairs of the power chair in the future.
When will we see the difference?
We have just started fundraising, but already raised 2600 towards our goal of 21k. We expect to have completed the full amount by Christmas at the latest, but with partnerships and kind hearted people the goal should be met sooner. We will keep you up to date with the running total and once the full amount has been achieved you can attend the delivery of the chair if you so wish PLEASE PLEASE Donate to help this child.
