Bliss Sheets Welch  HARRISON, TN
Hello, my name is Bliss Welch. I was recently crowned Ms Wheelchair Tennessee 2013. I am rasing funds for my entry fee to the Ms Wheelchair America pageant held in Houston, TX from July 15th-21st. It is my goal to raise these funds one dollar at a time and to have a donation from all 50 states. Yes, you read that correctly, I want to raise $1,943.00 from 1,943 different individuals. (The entry fee is $1850.00, the fee from Go Fund Me is $92.50 (5%), any funds above and beyond the $1,943.00 will go towards my travel expenses for the year.)

As Ms Wheelchair Tennessee, my platform is to use media, especially social media, as a tool to raise awareness. I will be sharing 'My Story' with the hopes that it will have a positive impact on all those who read it. In addition to 'My Story', I will be shining a spotlight on other individuals who accomplish greatness from a wheelchair and live in the state of Tennessee. I hope you will take the time to 'Follow the Year of Bliss'.

The mission of Ms. Wheelchair America is to provide an opportunity of achievement for women who happen to be wheelchair users to successfully educate and advocate for the more than 54 million Americans living with disabilities.
It is my duty as Ms Wheelchair Tennessee to promote awareness of the need to elimate architectural and attitudinal barriers and to inform the general population of the achievements of the millions of people with disabilities.

Thank you so much for sharing your dollar with me. Please be sure to add the first name, last name, city, and state of the person you are donating your dollar for in the comments section.
