TRAVELLING WITH A WHEELCHAIR AND HAVING FUN
We were wondering if you'd share our facebook page www.facebook.com/havewheelchairwilltravel with your followers? We are a family trying to share our positive stories about travelling with our son who has Cerebral Palsy through our website www.havewheelchairwilltravel.net and through our facebook page. We want to give people positive messages to encourage people to give things a go despite having a disability. We tell stories about the places we go, things we try and equipment we find that is helpful. Sometimes we will tell a story about when our son was younger and how we managed a particular stage. It is all about fun and motivation. We are hoping to build awareness and make changes to the tourism industry in particular, if we can grow our following.
Thanks and kind regards

I posted about my product in another Fibro group and many thought I was spamming. I am so excited about it, I just want every fellow fibromite to experience what I am. Finally, some relief!! I am not a sales woman. I am just a mom, friend, sister, daughter, girlfriend... I'm not gonna ask for friend requests or even mention what the product is, here, so that I don't get any grief over speculation, being accused of fraudulent posting, etc. I am taking it, selling it and fibro is 90% gone. Just FOLLOW me and read what I post about. I offer my links to my website, attaching them to recipes, jokes, quotes... and I post tons of testimonies from real people having wonderful results. If there's any doubt in the testimonies, I can put anyone in touch with these individuals! Just please, try my product for 1 month. You'll see. Have a wonderful night, everyone!
