December 19, 2010 Sporty Snowmen Give Gift of Communication

 Donations to the For Betty Fund were given in lieu of Christmas gifts by a number of members of Betty’s family.  Donors received a Sporty Snowman decoration and gift card to pass on to an individual indicating that such a donation had been made on their behalf. The effort raised $2152.00, more than enough to cover the cost of a Head Mouse Extreme and Keystrokes package. This combination of technology enables Betty to communicate using the movement of her head in place of her hands to construct messages and access the Web. The software also allows her to "speak" messages she composes, which is a big help in communicating with those around her.
