BENEFITING: DA TERRA BRASIL FOUNDATION
For my birthday this year in lieu of presents, I would like create a new campaign called "Birthdays for Wheels" in support of the Brasil on Wheels campaign launched by the Da Terra Brasil Foundation in 2013. The campaign was created with the purpose to provide wheelchair donations to the inhabitants of impoverished and underprivileged communities in Brazil. Together with local partners and volunteers, wheelchairs will be donated to the disabled or physically challenged who do not have the means, or lack the basic resources to acquire one on their own. Through extensive research, the foundation's team members, over the course of several visits to Brazil, learned that there are thousands of people who have been confined to their beds for most of their lives. They became aware of the numerous health and rehabilitation institutions for the poor who are in desperate need of wheelchairs. The Brasil on Wheels campaign, and the Da Terra Brasil Foundation, will be providing not only the gift of mobility, but also that of dignity to those who otherwise would be destined for despair.
Therefore, I would like to ask you to help me to celebrate my birthday making a donation to the Da Terra Brasil Foundation -- there are 200 people and counting on the waiting list for a wheelchair.
Together we can make a difference!
