Give Me Your Money

Angie Plager - go ahead and google her.
Dear Readers, Friends, and Family;

Thank you to everyone that has already donated. It is greatly appreciated. I hate raising money and I have had to increase my personal goal 3 times. THANK YOU.

The Easter Seals walk is only a week away on Aug 10th and we are looking for more donations to help out Easter Seals in their mission to help those that are less fortunate. Even the smallest amounts can help. Thanks again for your time and consideration. Below is a little info about Angie and why I believe in this cause.

I am helping my friend Angie raise money for Easter Seals. Angie was injured in a car accident a few years ago becoming paralyzed and wheelchair bound. Angie is a quadriplegic; she has total loss of use below the mid-chest area, and partial loss of use of her arms.

After her injury and rehabilitation, Easter Seals was really able to help her family out by providing a hospital style bed, and accessible shower benches for her home, among other items and assistive programs. Besides the obvious help of material needs for someone in a wheelchair, Easter Seals provides support and hope for a more normal life.

With the help of Easter Seals, many other charity organizations, and the help of friends and family; Angie is now able lead a good quality life. Angie has gone on to graduate college, volunteers for many organizations that help the disabled like the Spinal Cord Association of Iowa, helps disabled and newly injured people find the resources that they need, and was voted Ms Wheelchair Iowa of 2009. You can read a little more about Angie here and here.

I know times are tough for everyone and if you are able to donate, any amount would be greatly appreciated. If you are not able to donate, please keep Easter Seals in mind for the future. Easter Seals really does a great job of helping disabled, autistic, and people with special needs.

Please Donate if you can.
