2010 Holiday Letter from David Behring, President of the Wheelchair Foundation

Dear Friends,

Jonathan, A Wheelchair Recipient

Imagine the possibilities that a new red wheelchair brings! During the entire eight years of his life in a small village in Yucatán, Mexico, Jonathan had never moved on his own. He waited and watched as his three sisters and older brother explored their worlds. Now that he is mobile, he too can go to school and socialize with other children. He no longer has to crawl and his mother no longer has to carry him everywhere they go. A new life awaits Jonathan and his family because of donors like you!

Jonathan is one of the 850,000+ people who have received the gift of mobility from the Wheelchair Foundation over the last ten years. Due to your generous contributions, we are fast approaching our original goal of distributing one million wheelchairs worldwide. Please help us continue to spread the joy that wheelchairs bring to recipients and their families. They all deeply appreciate your life-changing gifts.

You can make your holiday shopping meaningful, simple and quick. Celebrate the season with gifts of hope, mobility, freedom, dignity and independence for another human being. Donations of any dollar amount make a big difference to those who merely wish to move about in a self-determined way.

Sponsor a wheelchair in the name of a loved one for a $150 donation. You will receive a beautiful presentation folder with a photo of a wheelchair recipient and a personalized certificate, thanking you or honoring a special person in your life. Your gift of mobility in the name of a loved one will be received with heartfelt appreciation and will be remembered long after the holiday season. And in the process, you will be making dreams come true!

In these difficult economic times your support means more than ever, and we are offering these additional holiday incentives –

With each donation of $100+, you will receive a music CD titled “Holiday Around the World.”

And those who donate $500 or more will also receive the limited edition engraved paperweight.

    Please make your donations by December 1st to allow sufficient time for us to prepare and mail your customized presentation folder(s). Call us directly, donate online, or donate by mail.

    Thank you for sharing in the holiday spirit by helping us answer the prayers of physically disabled people worldwide who dream of mobility.

    Happy Holidays,
    David E. Behring
