News from Whirlwind Wheelchairs

PBS NewsHour to cover Whirlwind's Efforts in Haiti
   
Whirlwind's campaign to provide our RoughRider wheelchair in Haiti will be covered by the PBS Newshour tonight (or tomorrow).  Check your showtime here:  www.pbs.org/tvschedules/
The piece will focus on how Whirlwind and our partner
on the ground, Handicap International, will help newly disabled Haitians regain their mobility as they begin to rebuild their communities. Here are some behind-the-scene shots:
