Hello everyone and thank you for reading this, sharing it and hopefully donating towards April Ko’s Wheels of Freedom fundraiser. The reason I am setting up this fundraiser for April is because she loves and is beloved by all children and adults she comes in contact with, and she desperately needs a new wheelchair.  Her arm rest padding has been worn away and her wheels are shredding apart from all her travels to work, mall, store and lunch with friends. April is a teacher’s assistant at Dirksen Elementary in Schaumburg, IL and is a vital asset to the teachers and students. I have worked on the property where she lives for 11 years and have had the pleasure of getting to know her. I have witnessed during mild weather April not be able to leave for work because her safety is at risk due to her worn out chair.

April Ko is a gentle, loving, perceptive, outgoing, happy, thoughtful, funny, smart, hardworking woman. We need more people like her guiding and caring for our youth, so I’ll do whatever I can to make sure she has the tools she needs to continue her independence and pursue her passion of reaching out and helping children (adults too). Feel free to post your “April is Awesome” story so everyone can understand her true spirit and value to our community. My goal is to collect enough money for her to purchase a new wheelchair from Hoveround which costs approximately $5,000. I found the information on the chair with the appropriate attachments, like swiveling foot rests, on the Hoveround website. Here is the chair info: Teknique FWD power wheelchair with swivel foot rest, head rest, backpack and side tote. I have not contacted Hoveround because I do not want April to be inundated with unwanted sales calls. Once the monetary goal is reached, April will have full control of any purchasing decisions. Help me reach this goal! $5000!!

We are all financially struggling, will you please consider give $1- $5 to the great cause? Chances are your child or someone you know will work with April this coming school year. Let’s make sure she has Wheels of Freedom.

$5000 goal deadline August 1,2014, prior to 2014-15 school year!!! $5 donation amount is only a suggestion, not a fee or payment. Cannot donate, I understand. Could you please share this with your friends and family, maybe they can help? I will not stop this fundraiser until April has a new power wheelchair, no matter how long it takes!!

Thank you for your time.
