The Wheelchair Foundation is a nonprofit organization leading an international effort to create awareness of the needs and abilities of people with physical disabilities, to promote the joy of giving, create global friendship, and to deliver a wheelchair to every child, teen and adult in the world who needs one, but cannot afford one.

During the past year, many companies in the direct response business, such as Koeppel Direct, have contributed to a fund raising effort for the Wheelchair Foundation. As little as $75 can provide a wheelchair for someone in need. To date, the direct response industry has raised more than $200,000 for the Foundation.
