September & October 2010: Stephen J. Wampler Foundation

This summer I saw magazine ad entitled Rock On, Steve!, and just as I was about to turn the page, I saw a note to donate $25.00 to the S'mores Fund...well they had me at s'mores so to speak :)

Steve Wampler is one of those human beings that just makes you want to get geared up for tomorrow because you don't want miss out on the next installment of his life. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Stephen Wampler was inspired by his childhood of fishing, hiking, and playing in lakes to create a foundation that enables children with disabilities to embark on their own wilderness adventures.

Nature is best medicine for soul and body, so it is with great pleasure that I donate 10% of all Hint profits for the month of September and October to the Kid's Programs funded by the Stephen J. Wampler Foundation.

Be sure to check out the inspiring video on Steve Wampler by clicking on this link and then scrolling to the bottom of the page: Wall film proposal. He is about to be the first person with Cerebral Palsy to climb El Capitan at Yosemite National Park. His journey this September to climb the equivalent the Empire State Building two times over is made in an effort to build awareness that disabilities are not limiting and to raise money for scholarships.
