With just only 4-5 months left until we hopefully start the process of making Chris’ Dream his reality I wanted to start sharing our dream for the future. Once we hit March or April we will begin the process of buying his truck and getting it converted. It could be a 6 month process. We’ll have to see when it gets here!
I want to share what we are working towards. We would in some way like to help others in a similar situation to ours, those with disabilities who would like to work but struggle with reliable transportation. Mini-vans are not the best in the snow and the bigger vehicles many need for the conversion process are quite a financial burden. We would like to work on first helping to reduce some of the financial burden with grants and Chris would ultimately like to look at working with manufacturers and conversion companies to come up with more user-friendly and pocketbook friendly vehicles.
We would like to keep up with fundraisers that we have had success with and set up a board to help oversee everything. In other words we are looking to set up our own 501(c).
We have learned a LOT with this process and would like to be able to help others with what we have learned. If you are interested in being involved please contact us and as the time nears when we are ready to get this off the ground we will be in contact!
I am excited for our future and the Independence this truck will give Chris. It would be such an awesome opportunity to continue his dream for others!
