2000 Lives Set in Motion shows that sponsorship of even a single balloon can be a powerful symbolic gesture
British engineer Dan Everard, working within his social enterprise, Dragonmobility, will shortly reach the milestone of 2,000 individual powerchairs made for disabled people.
"Dan's innovation has revolutionised mobility for disabled children and his career has spanned four decades and provided liberation and integration for disabled people worldwide.
"The year-long 2000 Lives Set in Motion celebrations centre around a balloon release, symbolising the lives touched all around the world, and we are fundraising for DragonMobility's ongoing work by asking companies and individuals to sponsor single balloons for £100 each.
"There are also larger corporate packages available which include additional PR and marketing advantages for the sponsor throughout the campaign.
"In addition to the balloon release, a coffee-table book will be published profiling some of the individuals who have benefitted, many of whom are now adults, highlighting their own personal and professional successes.
"We also plan a gala dinner towards the end of 2015 to round off the varied events of 2000 Lives Set in Motion. By sponsoring this campaign you will be contributing to the next generation of innovation and technology for disabled people.
"I do hope that you will consider working with us and we look forward to hearing from you".
