A local group devoted to helping people with disabilities is hoping people will show some heart.
The Langley Pos-Abilities Society has a raffle that will be drawn Valentine's Day.
Tickets are $2 apiece or three for $5.
And up for grabs are two tickets and swag for the Abbotsford Heat or a quilt provided by the Langley Quilters' Guild.
"They win one or the other," explained society founder Zosia Ettenberg. "That way we're hopefully marketing to the whole community."
The society helps people with assistive devices and also works to raise awareness and educate people about disabilities.
Proceeds are used for running the society.
"One of the hardest things for non-profits is to get operating funds," she said.
All the society members volunteer their time and energies. The society hosted the 24-Challenge last year at the Langley Events Centre to spotlight mobility issues. Plans are in the works for a summer event in Douglas Park if community grants can be obtained.
On April 14 the society has a pub night at the Artful Dodger with items up for auction and raffles.
The society created a video which showed able-bodied people trying to do mundane activities such as sitting on a toilet or trying to pour a glass of juice while they wore devices that made their bodies impaired.
Copies of Try on a Disability can be purchased through the society website.
The organization is also working to raise money to add elements to the documentary such as sign language.
Tickets are available from any Langley Pos-Abilities Society board member or by calling Ettenberg at 604-961-0117. There is also more information at langley.pos-abilities.org.
Also contact the society with equipment that can be donated to help others.
