Empowering individuals with special needs and unique challenges
Dear Family & Friends –
As you know, in January of 2018, we were thrilled to open Sēb’s Recreation Center (SRC) and realize Sēbian’s dream of creating an inclusive facility where disabled people can spend time together with their family and friends. You probably also know that shortly after we opened, Sēbian’s health began to decline. On June 19th 2018, he was called home to our Lord. The center never would have endured without the help of so many of you, and I am deeply grateful. God provided the means and the help needed to make this dream come true. My son and I thank you for all of your support.
Now, I have turned my focus to preserving Sēbian’s legacy. Because of his poor health, we were unable to launch all of our programs and initiatives to get the center self-funded at the beginning of the year. I am happy to say that in the past two months, SRC has implemented more activities and the community has responded well, but more funds are needed. So, this month, the center has reached a crossroads because I am nearing the end of my resources. I again need the help of friends, family and the community to keep SRC open while we establish our funding model.
I am writing to make you aware of an opportunity to participate in keeping Sēb’s dream alive as a legacy to the brave and valiant young man we knew and loved. We have launched the WE CAN WARRIORS campaign. The WE CAN WARRIORS are people who, like Sēbian, fight every day because they believe in doing something to make the world better. The WE CAN WARRIORS are people who are willing to come alongside me and our other volunteers to make a commitment that will provide us with 12 months to deepen our relationships in the community and build sustainable funding.
Our hope is to find 500 WARRIORS among you who are willing to commit to a monthly donation of $10 or more for the next 12 months. With $5,000 a month, we will be able to pay rent and utilities and keep our doors open. I will continue to donate the majority of my time and resources to developing the recreation center and its programs. Please consider joining us.
To make it easy, we have included a PayPal link where you can commit to being a WE CAN WARRIOR or make a one-time donation. Clicking on the DONATE button will allow you to make a contribution. Checking the box below your donation amount allows you to automate a monthly donation. You can also set up a reoccurring payment thru our payment system at Sēb’s Recreation Center. Please visit the center to make a donation or call us at 303-353-9822 As always, your contributions are tax deductible, and receipts are provided through the PayPal system and SRC's system for your records. If you have any questions, please call me directly at 303-323-1927.
We are greatly humbled by the support that has enabled us to open SRC. We are praying that God will move again to bless this facility and the hopes that we all have of making a difference. Please watch for our next email update with the status of our campaign and our plans to become fully funded.
Thank you again,
Sēb's Recreation Center
