10 Fundraiser Ideas to Help People with Disabilities


10ideasWheel:Life, an online community for wheelchair users worldwide, has published 10 Fundraiser Ideas to Help People with Disabilities as a new e-book on Amazon.com. Wheel:Life publications center on sharing resources and support for people who use wheelchairs.

Within 10 Fundraiser Ideas to Help People with Disabilities, readers will discover brainstorming ideas for different types of fundraiser events to benefit an  individual with a disability who needs financial assistance for medical equipment, physical rehabilitation, adaptive sports equipment or daily medical needs.

Author Lisa Wells shares real-life examples and success stories throughout the book based on her lengthy healthcare marketing career that includes more than 20 years of ongoing interactions with disability advocates, non-profit supporters and peer support group members.

“Wheel:Life receives hundreds of inquiries each year from people who are seeking advice on ways to raise money for medical equipment, adaptive sports gear or specialized health care,” Wells says. “While Wheel:Life doesn’t have the funds to financially support these requests, we are able to provide intelligent support by offering resources like this book.”

10 Fundraiser Ideas to Help People with Disabilities features:

  • Paralympian and UroMed founder Bert Burns on how he raised support to begin his career in wheelchair racing
  • Project Walk Atlanta participant Leslie Ostrander on how she raised money for additional rehab
  • The founders of 100 Songs for Kids and their annual music event that benefits children’s medical charities
  • Rolling Inspiration creator Chris Salas on how he lined up sponsors for his SCI peer support group and power soccer team
  • The creators of Hunter’s Torch Daylily Garden, a fundraising resource for a child with special needs.
  • The Independence Fund – a little known source of financial support for disabled US veterans.
