Wheelchair Accessible Van Needed!

$925 of $70,000 goal

Raised by 6 people in 3 months
We are a business, yes, that is true, but we provide a service,  one that is very much needed.  We are not asking for help to start our business, we did that on our own, uphill all the way.  We are asking for help to grow one vehicle, a wheelchair vehicle.  Why?   Well, let me tell you...

A lady called me looking for a ride for her sister who is in a wheelchair.  Last year they paid $700 to go from Harriston to Stratford (only 76 kms away).  The company took them there, dropped them off, and they had to call and wait over an hour for them to come back after the 20 minute appointment.  This is not cool.

Redbeard Rides would have taken them, waited at the appointment, ready to go when they were done, and brought them back for less than $250.  One problem - we still need a wheelchair accessible van.

 If you want to help us help people in our communities - your family, friends and neighbours, we would be grateful for the help.  

It breaks my heart to turn people away everyday because banks won't give new business a loan.  Why does it have to be so hard to help?
 
Contributions and social media shares greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help, and please tell a friend.  Together we can get this van and help these people.

We have dropped the amount of the goal to $70,000. This might seem like a lot for a van, and it is, but a used van (there are regulations about what we can use) is going to be $40,000 to $55,000. We then need to licence, and do some other things to make it compliant to the rules and regulations, and insure it (the insurance is $12,000 per year, no that is not a typo, 12 thousand is the insurance on this vehicle for our company). So when you add all that up, we need $70,000. Just wanted to keep everyone in the loop! Please share again if you can, we appreciate it.

Thank you to everyone for the contributions. Please share on your facebook, twitter, snapchat and help us get the word out there!

If you know someone in a wheelchair, then we could be helping them one day, so please share. So many people in our rural areas need this service. We need to be able to provide an affordable service for these people!

Please, please spread the word and help us help them! Thank you
