Have you heard of Elliott yet?

I am currently watching something really huge happen in the world of social media.
I have seen this before.
But never actually been a part of something that involves one of my close mates.
It is pretty awesome to watch actually.

As long time readers of this blog would know Liv is mum to Elliott. Liv is one of the most generous and giving people I know. She is also a sole parent doing a wonderful job of raising Elliott.
Being a parent is hard.
Being a parent to a child with a disability is harder.
Being a parent to a child with a disability, while on your own, is harder still.

Liv recently entered a competition to win a brand new car.
Not because she would just like to have a fancy car.
But because she NEEDS a car she can convert, so Elliott can travel in his wheelchair.
The car she has currently is pretty old, and she is having to reach in awkwardly to put Elliott in and out of his car seat.
These type of transfers are not sustainable (as any good physio will tell you).
Basically, it will stuff your back.
Elliott has a wheelchair.
Just can't travel in it.

The competition ends 25th Feb and in a minute I will post the link so you vote.
There is also a Facebook page which already has over 4000 members!!!

I believe as a collective online community we can WIN this car for Olivia and Elliott.
I know we can do it.
She is already in 4th place.
Yep.
So so close.
This car is not a want, it is a need.

Thanks for reading and stopping by and (hopefully!) voting.
I so appreciate all the family and friends who have so far shared the link on Facebook and continue to vote.
It reminds me again how lucky I am to have so many special people in my life.

Links here:

Facebook Group: Vote 4 Elliott

Direct link to voting: Never Again, at least, Not in the Cressida

If you have trouble finding Liv's story, you can search for Olivia Sheen.
You can't vote from a mobile device is the only catch.

Ryley and Elliott last year at Ryley's 10th Birthday.
