Poster Boy...

What took months in the making is now a completed project!  Several months ago, I entered Bridger into a contest on how he could make a difference in our community.  Adaptive swings are something this community has needed for a very long time, so we wrote in the proposal we'd like to add an adaptive swing at one of the parks.  We were hopeful that maybe he'd get chosen, but knew the reality of the situation, that many hundreds of kids in the contest would all be deserving.  

A few weeks later, I got a call from a rep of the company to let me know Bridger was selected as one of the top 5 finalists and they would split the money 5 ways!!!  After the fundraiser was complete, we ended up with nearly $7,500!!!  So, instead of just ONE adaptive swing, we ended up installing SIX!!!!  It was incredible how it all worked out.  These swings are already blessing the lives of countless kids, just like Bridger, in our community, who need adaptive equiptment.  I have received several videos from community members showing me their cute kids enjoying the swings.  My eyes get teary everytime I see them being used!  Thanks to @teacollections, a childrens clothing company, for making this dream a reality for us!
