While I didn't find someone to give my love to on this Valentine's Day, I did get love from UPS! What's in the box!!! :D Joooooy!! Now to put it all together.
It has arrived!!!
Another batch of photos have been mailed out! Only a few more to go.
I wanted to thank everyone who have received their images in the mail for posting photos of them and tagging me as well as the kind words. After a rough start to my week I needed it and seeing those really made my day!
Those who live in Philly, I wanted to try to actually deliver the images in person but well mother nature laughed at that idea!
The chair is due to arrive tomorrow but I think it might get delayed because of the weather.
I again thank everyone for being patient with me. :)
Good news!! I have mailed out the vast majority of the images which many should be getting sometime next week. All those who are outside the US it will take longer. All that are left are the larger prints. Speaking of NEXT WEEK, I have officially received tracking from UPS for chair! It's coming from Washington state, and right not somewhere in the middle of the country. :)
I'll further update everyone once I get the rest in mail.
As we all know life happens. It's taken me longer than expected to get the photos mailed. I had hoped to have them out by now. I've been cutting cardboard and stuffing envelops for over a week! By the time I'm finished it will be something close to 150 to be mailed!
Some of these images are going international! :)
I wanted to thank everyone for their patience as well as there kind words!
I'll update again soon!
BTW the chair should be arriving next week! :)
In the final stretch! :)
Happy New Year everyone! I just wanted to update everyone to say the prints are here. I have a lot of signing and packaging to do but you should be seeing them soon! Not only that, but bits and pieces for the new chair have started arriving as well!
I update everyone once prints are in the mail.
I hope everyone has a great holiday and incredible new year! I just wanted to update everyone to let you know than the order has been placed for the new chair! Provided there aren't any delays I should be showing it off towards the end of Jan 2014! :)
Thank you all for keeping this going. I should now being able to help someone else in need of a chair or assistance with repairs! I've gotten some inspiring messages from around the world as well as messages from others struggling to follow their dreams who have found inspiration from rediscovering my story thanks to the power of all of you!
I will keep everyone posted on the progress of my chair and I can't wait to show it off for you all! (BIG ASS HUGS ALL AROUND)
I can not thank you all enough for not only the support, but also some of the uplifting messages that were left! I can't believe how quickly this was funded thanks to all of you either sharing, contributing, or both! While I may be funded there is still time to help out. If I am able to raise enough I might be able to help a few other people that are need of chairs.
I have been struggling for the better part of 3 years to get my wheelchair repaired or replaced only to find myself between a rock and a hard place. One of the major issues I am facing with certain companies is they wont fix my chair because I did not purchase it from them.
After making costly repairs myself, I've been attempting to get a new wheelchair through my insurance for 2 years. Due to all the red tape, this process has been made more difficult than it was 7 years ago. Now my chair is starting to come apart and I need help before my mobility becomes difficult.
The wheelchair I'm in need of will cost between $5,000 and $7,000. I have set a goal of $5,000 with the hopes that we are able to raise much more. This will allow me to repair my old wheelchair and donate that to someone in need.
Be sure to check out the videos below for my personal story.
