A new wheelchair for David!

David, Albuquerque's 'Smiling Saint', needs a new wheelchair. (Read his story here! )

He's gotten by with the piece of junk he's had for the last ten years, but it's falling apart and has caused several falls recently. Can you help?

David gives joy and hope to everyone he meets by sharing his signature smile and catchphrase: 'I woke up, so today's an amazing day!' He has inspired so many, yet he never asks for anything in return. 

Would you please send a little love back his way? 

David thanks you!!!
