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!
For those of you who have donated money and would like a letter as a receipt, please send me a message with your name and address. I would be more than happy to send it as well as invite you to the celebration to honor Emma for her donation.

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.
OMG! Emma came home from school today and got to see her page. She was so excited. Huge thank you so everyone who has supported her cause. We are going to schedule a Chuck-E-Cheese fundraiser night in December. I will pass along the details as soon as I have them.
