Today I want to tell you about a very special project being supported by our local community as a way to remember Bronwyn. Our project is called "Bronwyn's Wheelhouse," and the purpose is to help children with special needs and their families through home renovation. To read the full story behind Bronwyn's Wheelhouse project, and to get updates on our current project, visit our website: www.bronwynswheelhouse.blogspot.com Click on the tab "Bronwyn's Story" for the background information.
Our current project is a bathroom re-do for a little girl, LilyAnne. LilyAnne is mobile with a walker, or with the aid of grab bars. She's 11 years old, and would like to be more independent! After we remodel LilyAnne's bathroom, she will be able to get in and out of the bathroom by herself (currently the doorway is too narrow to allow her walker in, and there are no grab bars), she'll be able to use the sink, toilet and shower independently, too! And here's what's really exciting: we're $800.00 away from making this a reality for her!!
So here's what I'm going to do: From now until the money is raised, I'm going to donate 50% of the proceeds from my BCharmer shop to this cause. If you've been waiting for a time to get a special accessory, now is a great time to shop! Visit my shops online here or here.
You can also donate directly to the foundation. Your donations are completely tax deductable, as our local chapter of the Kiwanis Club has kindly adopted our program, and thus has given us non-profit status. To donate, you can make a check out to: "Tumwater Kiwanis Youth Foundation" and write "Bronwyn's Wheelhouse" in the subject line. Mail the check to:
Tumwater Kiwanis Club
5201 Capitol Blvd SE
Tumwater WA 98501
I have added this little thermometer to the blog to track our progress on the fundraising; I'm so excited that we can make this happen!
P.S. Some of you have already given to this cause, Thank-You so much!! Please don't feel that you need to give again; the point is that a small (and manageable) gift from many can make a significant impact. That way, nobody feels pinched.
Okay, friends; let's make this happen!!
