American Girl Doll Giveaway!
We kicked off the 2014 Holiday Season with a charitable giving raffle fundraiser on #GivingTuesday, December 2, 2014. The raffle prize featured an award-winning doll from American Girl®, get-well accessories and grooming brush (~$300 value). Donations were designated to benefit disabled children from birth to age 12 suffering with a spinal cord injury. Natalie Barnhard, Founder and President of Wheels With Wings Foundation stated, “Spinal cord injuries do not discriminate contrary to age or gender. Younger disabled children may need help understanding that paralysis and living most of your days in a wheelchair can be a difficult task. Children can learn more clearly from books, videos, activities and playing. It’s important to remember that beyond the wheelchair, they are still children who live everyday with hopes and dreams.”
#GivingTuesday is a global initiative launched in 2012 that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, focusing attention on the spirit of giving to worthwhile causes throughout the holiday season.
