Meet Adé: pure love, pure hearted Ade loves to be loved. Once his most basic needs are met, life is beautiful. Many of you know how he exudes joy and delight in the outdoors- sand, water, grass and cool weather are exciting and an absolute pleasure. With such an active family and two brothers, one of our greatest hopes is that he not get left behind on family trips. His day to day wheelchair just doesn't cut the trails and beaches we hope to explore.
We had the opportunity to borrow a hippocampe all-terrain wheelchair this summer and it was fantastic getting Ade on the beach. Unfortunately, these wheelchairs are expensive and hard to come by in the US (available all over France). Why do we love this one? It has all sorts of accessories that allow for us to enjoy life: Balloon wheels for the beach, Ski kit for the snow and true foldability for transporting in the trunk.
Between November 1 (Ade's 8th Birthday) and January 26th (Chris' 40th Birthday) we are doing this birthday fundraiser (my birthday is Nov 9 and Khalil is Dec 25). So if you were thinking of getting me a pair of salad tongs or a toy for Ade, consider donating to this instead and know that we are incredibly grateful to you giving us the outdoors with Ade.
Thanks love! :)
