An Oregon based non-profit organization is bringing smiles to the faces of wheelchair bound kids this Halloween.
Magic Wheelchair’s purpose is to “to give kids in wheelchairs an unforgettable Halloween by creating custom costumes for them at no expense to their families,” and they are doing just that, according to Fox News.
Each season the organization picks five children from a group of applications and works with its artists and creators to construct costumes like dinosaurs, ships and horses for the children, Fox News reported.
The effort started because group’s founders, Ryan and Lana Weimer, have three children afflicted with muscular dystrophy.
Ryan built a pirate ship costume for his son Keaton in 2008 and the idea took off from there, according to Fox News.
“Our vision is to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair by transforming their wheelchairs into awesomeness created by our hands and their imaginations,” its website reads. “Our mission is to give kids in wheelchairs an unforgettable Halloween by creating custom costumes for them at no expense to their families.”
