This is by far the best gift I have seen this year...
For $59.20 you are giving the gift of mobility, opportunity, possibility and hope...
Years ago Don Schoendorfer and his wife were vacationing in Morocco and witnessed a disabled woman dragging herself across a dirt road...there began a journey to bring mobility to disabled and impoverished people throughout the world.
Don has a PHD from MIT and eventually left a successful career in the biomedical industry to found the non-profit,
Don began tinkering with ideas in his garage and eventually came up with this simple and successful design.
The idea was to build a wheelchair from inexpensive, readily available components, therefore reaching the highest number of people in the shortest amount of time.
Today they have shipped 540,550 wheelchairs!
This is an amazing story and an even more amazing gift.
It is hard to wrap my arms around the concept of any individual without the basic concept of mobility or the possibility of a full life, because we are so blessed in our nation.
But this is the best gift I will give to my family this year and I vow to give at least two chairs every holiday for as long as this project is in place.
I hope you will do the same.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post!
