RACING DREAMZ's Fundraiser:

Karts for Kids




My name is Donna Jones. I am the Executive Director of Racing Dreamz. A 501(c)3 non profit organization. Our mission is to help disadvantaged and special needs children as well as disabled U.S. Military veterans achieve a better path in life and happiness thru off road karting.
Along with my husband, Ben we began Racing Dreamz because both of us did not have the advantages in our youth to pursue our dreams of racing. So as we got older and knew our time has come and gone, we could still help those that may be going thru the same circumstances we did. If our mission brings smiles to the faces of these children and our veterans, then we have achieved our goal.
Our campaign is to raise $20,000 to purchase custom off road karts for the disadvantaged kids and disabled veterans to use in the Appalachian region. With these funds, we can purchase 8 off road karts that will be fitted with the latest safety equipment and performance modifications that will allow these drivers to train for furthering an off road racing career or 'fun' therapy which will put the smiles back on their faces. As a non profit, Racing Dreamz has been granted exclusive pricing from these very generous companies, BMS Motor Sport, KandiUSA, SSR Motorsport, and Cougar Motorcycle Sales. These great companies are giving us dealer pricing and reduced shipping cost so that we may achieve our mission. Now, we need to raise the funds to purchase these karts. The karts will range from 150cc youth size UTV/buggy to larger models for the veterans and older kids. When you price todays 'retail' UTV's, you'll find them in the $12,000 range and up. So you can see what a terrific opportunity Racing Dreamz has been given. This opportunity is for a limited time only so we need to really push to raise these funds for the karts.
For every dollar that is contributed, a smile starts to grow on the faces of our enrollee's. Of course, the more dollars given, the bigger the smile. Help us create a contagious smile that will never go away.
This campaign is to raise $20,000. Every penny will be spent on the off road karts mentioned above. For the karts themselves(8), the needed safety equipment(better harness, helmets, gloves, etc) and needed performance modifications so they will be able to conquer the hills of east Tennessee. Once we have the karts ready to go, the kids and veterans will enjoy the trails in their training in east Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, W. Va and Va. Racing Dreamz will be transporting the kids and vets, along with the karts to these off road parks. Hopefully one day, Racing Dreamz will be able to purchase land to build our own racing complex. Until then, we transport.
Of course, every contribution will receive an IRS Tax Deductible Receipt from our 501c3 non profit.
For every contribution of $1 up to $24, a very hearty Thank You from Racing Dreamz.
For every contribution of $25, the donor will receive a Racing Dreamz logo sew on patch. This is about 3x5 inches and can be sewn on hats, jackets or any fabric. There are 15 available.
For every contribution of $50, the donor will receive an original Sim Racing Candle set. These are perfect for the man cave, garage or the dedicated sim racer. With scents of “Filler up with Ethyl” a high octane racing gasoline, “Racing Oil”, “1st Place Exhaust” a smell you'd be smelling if you were in second place, and the ever popular, “Burning Rubber”. These candles will bring your smelling senses to their fullest yet all the while will not run you out of the house. Very mellow and easy on the nose but will bring the racing garage to you. A set of 3 candles will be awarded with every $50 contribution. There is no limit on candles.
For every contribution of $100, the donor will receive an exclusive Racing Dreamz T-shirt designed by famed artist, Willie Estep. There are 100 T-shirts available.
For every contribution of $1000 and above, the donor will receive a Racing Dreamz hat, an exclusive Racing Dreamz T-shirt(designed by Willie Estep), a set of Racing Candles(with a bonus of two more candles included) and an honorable mention and listing of your name and logo on our Racing Dreamz 'Partner' page on the Racing Dreamz website,
We are asking for your kindness and contributions to our cause. If you cannot contribute please, share with your friends and family. Share on your Facebook page/groups, share on your Twitter or call your friends on the phone. If you've known of a hardship or anyone else that has had a hardship, you can understand what we are trying to do.
