We received a beautiful thank you letter (see below), and the picture above, from the Shaler Area School District. Each year they host a fundraiser where the school / children raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation®. They raised over $10,000 this year … WOO HOO!!! The winners of the fundraiser and two teachers received a “limo lunch” which consisted of riding in a limousine to and from the Hard Rock Café in Pittsburgh. They also had the privilege our touring the Make-A-Wish Foundation® headquarters and riding to some of the most popular attractions in Pittsburgh (Mt Washington and “The Point”). As you can see from the picture, they were a happy group.
“Somebody has to train these kids. Somebody has to teach them, and if not me, who? If not now, when? We must do it. It’s got to be done.” Oral Lee Brown
There is nothing like seeing the smiles of children from our community. They warm our hearts and provide the assurance that our limo company pleases even the youngest of generations through our hard work and dedication. On the other hand, in this case, we feel humbled and appreciative for the children and teachers in this picture because of their “servants heart”. Adults guiding children in this direction and their willingness to do for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® is not always “in the cards” these days – if you know what we mean? Meaningful fundraisers, like this, and rewarding children for their participation helps to foster another generation of “community” that cares for doing more than just the basics. Although these students were treated to a limo luncheon, the real prize was that these children met their Make-A-Wish Foundation® liaison, heard the stories and saw the pictures of children that received their wishes, and took a photo with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® mascot. Whether they understand this right now or not, we hope that they will remember this experience.
:) At least every time they see or ride in a limousine (smile).
By the way, our other website has pages of testimonials / thank you letters / customer reviews of our limo services and chauffeurs. They rank from oldest to newest and are posted as we receive them. Our staff loves reading these letters almost as much as the service we provided to receive them. We proudly add this one to our “vault” of memories and new friends that we have made because when it all comes down to it …
