    From immobility to mobility
    By - Sonya Yencer - Vice President, The Red Thread Promise

Through these gifts—gifts that you have made possible—lives are...

    1/5th of the way there!
    By - Sonya Yencer - Vice President, The Red Thread Promise
    While it may be an unlikely name for a report, it couldn't be more true for The Red Thread Promise. We are 1/5th of way to funding a full container of All Terrain Wheelchairs (ATWs) for Haiti and we couldn't be more thrilled! A full container holds 100 - 120 ATWs (depending on the wheelchair sizes specified) which is our...

    One wheelchair at a time

    By - Sonja Beals Iribarren - Board Member, The Red Thread Promise
    We have shipped our second container of chairs, although working with customs in Haiti continues to be a big challenge.  We had begun our efforts before the January 2010 earthquake, and need for these chairs has only increased.  We have expanded our focus past amputees to those with any sort of disability that...
