Mitch needs freedom!

$11,000 of $70,000 goal

Raised by 120 people in 29 months
My name is Mitch, I am 25 years old and I have Muscular Dystrophy.  I require 24 hour care to live my life, recently I have found myself with the urge to see more of what's out there. I have been cooped up for too long and it's time for a change! A van would significantly improve the quality of my life.

I am looking for funding for a van to get me out into the world, I have had a Volkswagon for 20 years now and it is on the way out, it has become extremely unreliable and I barely fit through the back. This makes longer trips unsafe and uncomfortable for me to partake in. The modifications to make a van accessible for me comes at quite a large cost. My government funding is very limited and  with the ongoing costs of the equipment I need to live such as 24/7 respite care and support;  lift assist devices as well as breathing assistance technology, there is very little left to save for something as expensive as an accessible vehicle.

Without your generous support,  this van will not be possible. 

I would be grateful for any donations large or small.  If enough people can get behind this effort and support me, it will ensure I can live out my life independently with more choice available to me.  To me, this would be priceless!

It has been over a month now since I started this to hopefully raise money towards a more accessible vehicle to get for myself. So far the amount of support and donations I have received from everyone has been quite overwhelming and I am extremely grateful of course. I encourage everyone who has donated or has been supporting to share this page again it would be greatly appreciated and maybe more people will get behind the cause. Once again thanks for the support received so far and hopefully getting new wheels will become a reality for me.
