Many of the children, due to their conditions, have a short life expectancy. So everyday for their families is a precious reminder of the importance of their time together. That is why being able to provide an epic costume for a special day is so critical. It is an honor to be part of this build community.
In 2015, Ryan Weimer and his wife started a non-profit organization called Magic Wheelchair. His own children were born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy and he wanted to bring hope and awareness to this condition as well as those afflicting children all over who are confined to their wheelchair. He began the non-profit organization and started working on recruiting builders.
Now they would like to give to kids in wheelchairs an unforgettable experience by creating custom costumes for them at no expense to their families.
GOAL 10: Reduced inequalities
Magic Wheelchair ensures inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Their vision is "to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair by transforming their wheelchairs into awesomeness dreams."
The community is full of volunteers who are paying forward with their skills and talents. Being part of this community brings DS into the workflow of industries our current brand products do not have access to, such as Film, theater, and Special Effects. Though the Magic Wheelchair is non-profit, the sponsoring opportunity is important for DS product visibility, emotional paycheck for DS employees and partners, and priceless experiences to countless children in wheelchair. Providing a platform that can help connect this community of builders and help them do good is what "harmonizing product, nature, and life" is all about.
