1/5th of the way there!

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 goal for Haiti. This comes at a total price of $45,000—approximately $350 per chair—which, in the world of specialty wheelchairs, is extremely reasonable. It is your generosity that has helped us come this far and your continued support that will allow us to completely fund a full container—a container that will change the lives of many Haitians with disabilities, like Diana, one of our first wheelchair recipients. Please consider sharing this project with your co-workers, friends and family as we can make a difference together!
