We wanted to share a story that has struck a chord with us here at Springfree Trampoline.
We are supporting a fundraiser tomorrow for a young boy with degenerative Muscular Dystrophy named Tanner. We share this in hope others may be able to help – by getting involved or even sharing the story.
Tanner’s story is best told by his Aunt… please read Tanner’s story here: http://herbadmother.com/tanner/
A cure for Tanner’s muscular dystrophy will not be found in his life time, so tomorrow’s fundraiser is to help renovate the basement in Tanner’s home so he can spend the time he has left with family.
As Tanner’s condition worsens his needs will become more complex – something his single mom won’t be able to deal with, and could result in him being relocated to a specialist home.
Tanner’s aunt is trying to raise $25,000 to convert Tanner’s basement into a space that will allow him and his mom to fulfill this wish to stay at home.
ABOUT THE FUNDRAISER
We recently heard through our friend and social marketing expert Scott Stratten (@unmarketing) about his Fundraiser in support of Tanner. The “Tweetathon” (Scott will be broadcasting the fundraiser from Twitter), runs tomorrow Wednesday August 4th, will run for 12 hours until 9pm EST.
For every $10 donated you can have one entry into a prize raffle to win a huge range of prizes. One of those prizes is a Springfree Trampoline from us.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be on Twitter to get involved, you can find all the information right here: http://bit.ly/Tweetathon
WHY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT IT
When we first read Tanner’s story we were amazed. We wanted to help straight away, no questions asked.
We enjoy making kids and their parents smile through our products. That’s why we wanted to get involved tomorrow in helping raise this money for Tanner and his family.
We want to help raise enough money to put a smile on a brave boy’s face – and hope by sharing we can make that happen.
