For those of you who do not know Donna Bell, you're missing out. Donna was in a vehicle accident 34 years ago leaving her a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the shoulders down. Donna was 15 at the time of the accident and had never been very good at art. It would be another 7 years until she discovered she had a natural talent for drawing and crochet. Donna immediately became proficient with her art. She believes it is God sent as she never had the ability to draw with her hands. She now draws and crochets using only her mouth. Be sure and visit this link to learn more about this incredible lady: http://theadvocate.com/DonnaBell. This is a complete story and video interview done by our local paper here in Louisiana, The Advocate.
Donna and I have been virtual friends for over two years now having met on facebook. We've chatted off and on since that time. It wasn't until very recently that I found that Donna had never had a power wheelchair or a suitable vehicle with a lift just to provide her basic needs and give her the ability to leave the house in the past 34 years. Donna and I finally met face to face about 3 weeks ago and have joined forces to get her a fundraiser in place with a goal of raising enough money to get her in that van. You may visit her fundraiser by clicking on the image below or following this link https://m.HelpHOPELive.org/campaign/4380. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and are fully tax deductable.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day and be inspired!
