Joining forces with other organizations dedicated to assisting the disabled is very important to HDS MEDALLION®. We are very proud to announce our new agreement with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation in which our designer carryall bags will be displayed on their site’s store with a link to our site. For every designated bag sold, $7.00 will be donated to the Foundation in their search for cures for spinal cord injuries. Christopher Reeve, the actor best known for his role as Clark Kent in the original Superman movie, was paralyzed in 1995 during an equestrian competition and died at the young age of 52 due to heart failure. He and his wife, Dana, established the foundation which is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research and to improving quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information, and advocacy.
Specific carryall bags from the HDS MEDALLION® collection will be a part of the program including Poppy Punch Caribbean Blue, Espresso Flower Shower and Pretty Paisley Bright Blue. In addition to these three stylish power chair bags, HDS MEDALLION® is also creating two brand new bags for wheelchairs and thick armed power chairs that will be included in the Reeve program bringing the total number of HDS MEDALLION Distinctive Carryall Bags that generate donations to five. Just look for the flame logo under those bags that will generate a donation to the foundation.
Being able to team up with an organization as well-known and respected as the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is an honor for us and we are excited to be a part of their ongoing efforts to find cure for debilitating medical condition.
The carryall bags designed by HDS MEDALLION® are ideal for women who have to use a medical mobility device such as a walker, power chair, transport wheelchair or medical scooter. The new bags being designed will work on wheelchairs as well. These bags are both practical and fashionable so women who use medical mobility devices have a convenient bag to carry all their personal belongings that also give them a stylish fashion accessory. Many of our customers talk about how the bags give them a psychological lift which helps their quality of life in some small way.
