This year (2010), we are trying to raise funds to assist the family of "Bear". Bear is a two year old who has abeen diagnosed with Lukemia and has undergone some treatments for his illness. "Bear" is the younger brother of two sisters and the first son of his Mom and Dad and is a happy, active child. As most of you can understand, the medical expenses are a burden that "you just deal with". You do what you can and if you you give up vacations, extras, you start giving up other things such as insurance, fuel, food....YOU know what I mean.
America Fundraisers, Inc. helps with your donation. A dollar, $2.00, or more is appreciated. The corporation helps those kids by helping with medical expenses that are incurred during the long term of their illness. Don't give up. Support.
On the web site, you will find pictures that helped us document the ride across the twelve states in 2008. On a recipe page, Kirt Martins recipes from his book "Cooking on the Wild Side".

Patty Dawson is the resident computer web person and Jet's rider. She has developed a web page for the children. This page has activities that can be printed off for children of different ages to do. We encourage the kids to get on the web and track us.
America Fundraisers, Inc's goal is to raise ten million dollars through donation, and horse activities.
This year, 2009, Phil is riding solo with his mare and pack mule. This will give others the opportunity to meet up with him and ride a short distance with the "Ride America" project. Take a minute and check out his location by tracking him on SPOT. This will give you the map and his last check in.

A note from Phil Dawson, CEO
I think people feel they need to give a lot of money to this cause, because they have big hearts, they want to give. We're not asking for a lot of money from anyone, $2.00. If you wanted to give $2.00/month you could set that up through your bank. We know that times are hard, fuel prices, food prices are up and businesses aren't giving pay raises. This is a way you can help American faimilies, who are less fortunate, with their childs medical needs. Feel good about giving your $2.00 and know that it's going to help an American child.
Thanks for your donation.
