Those Who INSPIRE Us

Alice

Alice is as adorable, active, funny and smart as any three-year old you’re likely to meet. To the people who know and love her, Alice is an unstoppABLE force. Her older brother is typically abled. Alice uses a wheelchair. There are plenty of playgrounds where Alice lives, but only two are considered accessible. They’re better than nothing, but they’re designed for kids like Alice, not her brother. There’s not much Alice can do at the other playgrounds, so sometimes she gets left behind. Alice belongs everywhere just like everyone else, but that’s not the world she’s growing up in. She deserves better.

Those Who INSPIRE Us

Deb

Our friend Deb is an amputee. Her granddaughter is typically abled. When Deb takes her to most playgrounds, they can’t play together. Deb can’t “get in the giggles” as she likes to say. Worse, she can’t let her granddaughter explore the rest of the park, because Deb can’t explore the rest of the park.

Deb deserves better than this, and so does her granddaughter. They deserve to explore together.
