Wheel:Life publications center on sharing resources and support for people who use wheelchairs. In this book, you’ll review 10 brainstorming ideas for different types of fundraiser events to benefit an individual with a disability who needs assistance for medical equipment, physical rehabilitation, adaptive sports equipment or daily medical needs. Throughout the book, Lisa Wells shares real-life examples and success stories from her interactions with disability advocates, non-profit supporters and Wheel:Life members throughout a healthcare marketing career that spans more than 20 years on three continents. 10 Fundraising Ideas to Help People with Disabilities features interviews from: • Paralympian and UroMed founder Bert Burns on how he raised support to begin his career in wheelchair racing • Project Walk Atlanta participant Leslie Ostrander on how she raised money for additional rehab • The founders of 100 Songs for Kids on their annual music event to benefit children’s medical charities • Rolling Inspiration creator Chris Salas on how he lined up sponsors for his SCI peer support group and power soccer team • The creators of Hunter’s Torch Daylily Garden, a fundraising resource for a child with special needs. • The Independence Fund - a little known source of financial support for disabled US veterans.
