At 12 Keys Rehab, we believe in supporting our veterans. We are happy to announce the completion of our Facebook initiative to donate $15,000 for the purchase of an all terrain wheelchair for a United States Military Veteran. Thanks to our Facebook fans, we were able complete our 25,000 fan goal and will donate $15,000 to the Independence Fund, a non-profit organization that seeks to help severely injured veterans receive the tools and therapy they need to recover.
Veterans have fought for our country and its people, and they have made sacrifices for us. At 12 Keys Rehab, we couldn’t think of a better way to help than to give them back something they lost. We wanted to know that our donation would directly impact a veteran’s life as they have impacted ours. So we decided the perfect recipient of our donation would be the Independence Fund, an all volunteer non-profit organization with a board of directors consisting of combat veterans. The Independence Fund helps injured veterans by not only helping to enhance their physical health but their emotional health as well, something that we believe in at 12 Keys Rehab.
One of the key factors in choosing the Independence Fund was their all terrain wheelchair campaign. In order to directly contribute to a veteran’s well-being, 12 Keys Rehab knew that we had to not only provide a donation but put that donation to something practical. The Independence Fund’s wheelchair campaign has raised donations to purchase nearly 500 all terrain wheelchairs for severely injured veterans, who have lost their sense of independence and freedom of mobility. With our donation, 12 Keys Rehab will be able to give one more veteran a chance to move around outdoors, unhindered by their injuries. We can only hope to give back some of the freedom that our veterans lost and give them the necessary tools for their mobility.
12 Keys Rehab would like to thank our Facebook fans, who helped us reach our goal. With your help, we are able to make this great contribution and help a deserving veteran move around outside without the fear of injury limitations.
