Since the end of September, Louise, Cloé and Eliot’s cousin, the two children who inspired the construction of the Escargot house in Plédéliac near Lamballe, has launched an unusual auction on eBay to help finance the building.
That’s the snail shell first conductive training center in Brittany that welcomes Children, adolescents and young adults with motor disabilities.
Louise is very present there, “always. My mother came to help Eliot and Cloé when I was little, I came with her”.
The Escargot house is my home too and I want to help on my level.
Cloé’s level is athletic: she has played rugby and coaches young people in soccer. Starting from her passion, she introduced herself an auction of well-known sporting goods on the eBay website.
“I have seen this done for other federations. I spoke to my parents about it first and they said it was a good idea. »
Jersey water bottles, sneakers
Carole Bourdais-Savé, the founder of the House of EscargotShe, mother of Eliot and Cloé, is enthusiastic about the proposal. So Louise takes the plunge.
I started sending dozens of emails: I got them mainly from social networks.
It’s the year 2020. The first positive feedback is coming.
“There were negatives too, but they were always encouraging! And as soon as I got the first positive feedback, followed by receiving the packages, that really spurred me on! »
Hundreds of in-game prizes
Louise sends Hundreds of emails during detention. And she gets water bottles, jerseys, sneakers, autographed caps… From soccer players, cyclists, swimmers, tennis players…
