Let's get Rita a wheelchair ramp

Hi everyone!
I'm asking for everyone to open their hearts and their wallets towards the accomplishment of a great thing. Over this summer I met a great lady named Rita and her situation really broke my heart. She lives in Inkster, on the border of Westland. Rita is in a wheel chair, has a form of autism, mid 60s, she lives alone due to her husband passing away, no family to my knowledge that helps her, and sadly, no friends. Rita gets out about once a week to go to a doctors appointment or Meijer where she gets dropped off at to grocery shop. Rita is in desperate need of a wheel chair ramp, and that's what I am raising money for. Not having a wheel chair friendly ramp on her house forces Rita to stay indoors, she is unable to get outside on her own, so she is stuck in the house, that is defiantly not fair or no life to live. I am asking for anyone and everyone to find it in their hearts to donate money towards the wheel chair ramp. We need to raise $1,000 for the ramp, I put $1,500 so, if we go over that amount, the remaining money will go towards an electric wheel chair for Rita. I have some amazing people and willing volunteers in the city of Westland that are going to make this happen and install everything for her. It's going to take about 4 weeks for everything to get built and installed, so I am praying to have this project finished by mid October, before the weather starts to get bad. I will pick up any donations, they can be put in my mail box (inbox me for my address) or sent via mail. Thank you everyone for reading this and please feel free to share. I am trying to collect all money by September 1st so we can get this rollin. Let's get Rita a wheel chair ramp! ❤️
