Darrell Gwynn Foundation Letter

Below is a letter to the Darrell Gwynn Foundation asking for the donation of a power chair. This deserving young man will receive a power chair at the up coming event hosted by the Hot Rodder's Children's Charity. Please click HERE to read more.


"Dear Mr. Gwynn:

My name is Diana Kuen. I am the unofficial guardian of Blake Hunt, the young man you have so graciously allowed to be the beneficiary of a new power wheelchair which will be given to him during the poker tournament charity event on June 23rd.



First of all, I just want to assure you that Blake's therapist has spoken to Angel and all of the measurement details are just about complete!!



I will definitely get into more detail for you later, but in a nutshell, there is no one more deserving than Blake. He is a nineteen year old paralyzed inner city kid forced to live in a nursing home because he has no family or means of support. Insurance refuses to pay for a new wheelchair. While I am happy he has a roof over his head and people to care for him, it still pains me to see him living in such awful conditions. The chair he has been using for the past 3 years was too small and lacked any sort of support so it actually made his condition worse. His already crippled hands have become even more rigid trying to push the heavy chair. (one of the many reasons he needs a power chair!)



He is a fighter and doesn't take anything for granted. I have been through a lot with him. I met Blake about 3 years ago and it's been a tough long road. The first 8-10 months he was angry, confused and mad at the world. Who could blame him! We needed to ween him off the overdose of painkillers he'd been given and that was no easy task either. -- I'll jump ahead... he is now, and has been for the past year and a half a warm, happy outgoing young man. He is determined to make something of his life. I am getting him ready to attend college in the Fall. He has his heart set on graphic / web / video game design! I know he can do it. He desperately needs a power chair to get himself around the campus as he'll be commuting via city bus. If he is forced to expel all of his energy on traveling, he'll have nothing left to give to his school work.



A little background. Blake was paralyzed playing football his junior year of high school. His father gave Blake and his sister up to foster care years ago. His mother is dead and his grandmother moved to Atlanta shortly after the accident. He has no one. I am the only one that visits him and brings him presents on Christmas. I take him to Mets games; buy him clothes; dinners; movies passes; etc... whatever I can to help. He's become like a little brother to me."

  37. Because the Maldives is one of the world's most dispersed countries, with only 1% land and 99 percent ocean, each island is separated by the sea, making Maldives transfers one of the most difficult aspects for visitors and inhabitants. The Maldives as a whole are not connected by any transportation system. Aircraft connect one part of the country to another, while water connects another. To get to an island, you'll need to use a speedboat or an airplane. Ferry boat transfers are one of the most popular modes of transportation in the Maldives, as they are the cheapest (1-5$ PP) and are ideal for short distances and excellent weather. Boats can take anything from 3 to 24 hours to travel from one atoll to another.maldives transfers

  39. (The Maldives is an island republic located near the equator in the Indian Ocean. A habitat for 500000 humans and 700 different species of fish. The islands are linked together in a chain. The Maldives islands are the world's most dispersed country. The country is divided into 26 zones, which are referred to as "regions" (atolls). People dwell on 200 of the 1200 islands that make up the archipelago. The local language is (dhivehi), and the currency is (Maldivian Rufiya), with a 1USD=15.42Rufiya exchange rate. )the maldives
