Auto Glass Industry Makes a Difference, Join Fight Against
Last month glassBYTES.com brought you information about Steve Theisen's
participation in the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) "Lock-Up."
Theisen got involved with the fundraiser almost by accident.
"Like most business owners or managers, I get dozens of calls every
year from charities. Ninety-nine percent of the time, I can't help, but
this time the sun and the moon were positioned just right and a "yes"
fell from my mouth," Theisen told glassBYTES.com.
He had participated in the event once before, several years ago, and with
his schedule free enough, he opted to participate again this year. The
experience is one that, for Theisen, is not a hard commitment to make
for a good cause.
"The truth is, it really is a very easy thing to do and took very
little of my time. The MDA has really got this program down and they make
it very easy to be successful," Theisen said. "I was able to
raise a total of $1,505.00 in the just the few days I worked at [raising
money], most of which came from the personal pockets of vendor reps."
Theisen hopes to double the amount he raises by starting to get the word
A successful campaign as it is, it turns out Theisen wasn't the only member
of the industry to be put behind bars. Nathan Aim, with Auto Glass Clinic
& Mobile Radio in Bremerton, Wash., also participated.
