BENEFITING: KATIES CRAFTS FOR SPECIAL NEEDS INC
This is going to a 501c3 charity, so all donations are tax deductible. We are full time care providers (24/7) due to the childrens disabilities.
Katie's Crafts is trying to purchase a mini-van for transportation and ease of use for her. Getting Katie in or out of a car is at best risky for her and us after a seizure which requires us using her wheelchair to get her close to the car then lifting her into our car. Our family has grown to five not including her seizure alert dog Roger. Roger tells us when the seizures are going to happen, and assists in protecting her from injury during a seizure. We have currently resorted to using a car that fits only 5 adults leaving no room for Roger to come with us. We are not looking for bells and whistles on it, but the standard no frills van starts at around $25,000 by the time we add a ramp for accessibility. This mini-van would allow for us to have our entire family in the same vehicle. Meaning Katie's seizure alert dog Roger, her wheel chair, and still have room for craft items. This van would be used for Katie's appointments during the week, craft deliveries, donation pick ups, and allow us to travel together as a family. Any money raised above this amount would be used towards the registration fees, taxes, and insurance for the van. In addition, once this money is raised, we will be paying it forward and donating a car to a family in need in the OKC metro area that has a child with special needs, following the guidelines set forth by the bylaws of Katie's Crafts for Special Needs Inc.
