You know that feeling when you go somewhere and you just feel like you belong? Almost instantly, the weight and worry about judgement about being ‘too different’ suddenly is lifted and you can suddenly be free, so comfortable in your own skin you don’t even know where to begin to try and describe it. Well that’s what was going on inside us today when we visited the Shane’s Inspiration playground in Griffith Park for the first time.
If You Build It, They Will Come — But Only If They Have a Ride
Playground field trips where kids of all abilities learn to play together are vital to the mission of Inclusion Matters by Shane’s Inspiration. The field trips teach typically-developing kids compassion and advocacy as they learn to play with differently abled kids. You can help fund transportation for this program:
$450: Bus for up to 5 students using wheelchairs.
$2,500: Multiple buses for a single field trip, serving up to 55 students.
$25,000: Buses for all field trips for a year.
Corporate and philanthropic organizations are invited to partner with Inclusion Matters on developing playgrounds in Los Angeles or globally, with budgets ranging between $500,000 – $2,500,000.
