This fundraiser is closed

Shafer has no handicap accessible play ground equipment.  The school has held fundraisers and received donations but the majority of the student body does not have physical or mental handicaps that impare their ability to play on the equipment provided by the school.  Therefore, the playground equipment being purchased is still not handicap accessible. 
When Emma heard of this she asked if she could help by donating her allowance.  When I explained how much it cost she was sad.  After a few days she asked if we could do a fundraiser.  Then a few days after that she started asking me to help her make a list of people that could help.  Since her passion for this is still going I have offered to help her pull off a real fundraiser. 
We need to raise about $25,000 to cover the cost of the item plus shipping plus installation. 
If you can help in any way please consider helping.  Emma would be happy to come to you personally and thank you for your help.  She is very excited to report that she has raised $7,000 already. 
Thank you so much
Heather Lindner

A huge thank you to everyone who supported this project.  The equipment has been ordered.  Between this website, kohls grants, and the Seven Lakes Junior High coin fundraiser we raised $18,000. The PTA covered installation and Be An Angel covered the rest.  
One little girl had a big impact on so many people.  She is truly an inspiration.
Thank you again to everyone!

We are really doing well.  If you know of a company that would help us by providing a fundraising evening we would be so grateful.  Chuck-E-Cheese was an idea but they will only host a fundraising night for a legal non-profit or the school.  Since the school cannot assist us we are looking for another location.  Ideas or contacts are welcome!!

i posted a picture of the Sway Bench that we are trying to buy for the school.  Goid News... It will hold 2 wheelchairs and 6-8 students at one time.   The Bad News.... It will be around $25-$28,000 to buy it, ship it, and install it.  
Check out the gallary of images!!

First I want to thank all of the angels who have donated money and kind words.  Your support means So much to so many. 
We recieved an update on our cost to bring a Sway Bench to our school.  The cost is going to be around $25,000.  
If you are in shock you are not alone.  Joanna Hitt and I are fast and furiously trying to work on fundraising events.   I will keep you posted.  Also Be An Angel foundation has agreed to help us with our fundraising efforts.  i will keep you posted!
finally, Emma is making thank you cards.  She wanted to write them out personally.  Since she is only 8 and she is overwhelmed at school, it is taking a while.  Please know that she is very grateful to everyone who has helped.
