The Volunteerism Award is coming up and so today, we wanted to share with you another volunteer we are so honored to have – Carrie Tendler. We have shared about her once before in an ambassador highlight. This time, we wanted to share with you why she was nominated for the Volunteerism Awards!
Carrie has demonstrated her generosity with both her time and design talents over the years with volunteer work at schools, her church and ministry service. Two years ago, Carrie discovered Free Wheelchair Mission and immediately started volunteering on a regular basis. Carrie’s family had personally experienced the need for a wheelchair within their family unit and recognized the difficulty and tragedy of the disabled poor who have no access to mobility in the developing world.
In addition to her weekly volunteer hours at Free Wheelchair Mission, Carrie has become a strong ambassador within her community, and has planned and managed many of her own fundraisers. She planned a luncheon in her home last spring, in addition to selling a delicious “hot chocolate” mix during the holiday season. Her “hot chocolate” was a great success and to date, Carrie’s fundraising efforts have generated donations for approximately 70 wheelchairs.
Carrie’s grace, positive attitude and generous heart for others has made this world a better place for all!
