Digital Camera Raffle for Muscular Dystrophy
As some of you know, I have two cousins who have Muscular Dystrophy. My oldest cousin, Joshua, is 26 and is living in his own apartment. The building is staffed with support people who help with daily tasks. The disease has slowly taken over his motor functions and he is now limited to only some hand movements.
The reason I am posting this note is that he is in need of a new van. Joshua is fund raising to get a Grand Caravan, which will cost approximately $28,000.00. The upgrades to the van will cost $17000.00 (which he is in the midst of getting a grant for). So, $28,000.00 is our goal.
Despite Joshua’s physical limitations he is very active with his family, friends and church. He organizes a volleyball league, coached a baseball team for several years and hates to lose at poker! He is a wonderful guy with a positive attitude, living his life in a wheel chair.
In an effort to raise funds for the Caravan, I am holding a raffle for a brand new Olympus Stylus 1030 SW digital camera. Be sure to check out the camera specifications – it has some very impressive features! Approximate retail value is $400. All proceeds will go towards getting Joshua a new van. Tickets are $2.00 each or three for $5.00. Draw date is August 28th and the winner will be contacted by phone. I’ll also post who the winner was right here on my blog! If you have any questions or want to purchase tickets, contact me or leave a comment :)
