Last week of our campaign

The Alinkers are on their way from Taiwan as we speak, everybody who ordered their Alinker will have them before the end of June!  This week is your last chance to order your own Alinker and be one of the first to have an Alinker in North America!  Either order your own Alinker or make a contribution for someone else.  Click here to contribute now:
Last week we announced the first winner of an Alinker!  SO COOL!

When you make a contribution for an Alinker for someone else, you get to nominate someone. So this is what happened:
This is the original nomination email we received after a contribution:

'I nominate John Robert Howland for the Alinker drawing.

John Robert is 21 years old and has cerebral palsy that impedes his ability to walk long distances, and most times walks with pain. He says a wheelchair is not for him! But every outing for him is measured in the walking distance from Point A to Point B. That determines whether he wants to go or not. He’s too young to have limits! The Alinker promises to give him the freedom to roll where he wants and to be cool doing it! It would not just be life changing, it would be life starting for a young man with dreams and a full life ahead of him.

Then after we sent the email announcing the winner, we got this email: from his mum

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just read the email! I called JR (I had not told him I nominated him, of course), sent him the link to your site and asked him “would you want one of these?” He immediately said, “yeah, that would be great!” Then I told him, well you won one and he screamed, “That’s awesome, that’s so awesome! When will I get it? How did I win it? I’ve never won anything before! That’s awesome!” Those were his exact words. I’m still smiling.

 

 
One happy young man!



You can make others happy!
