Magic Wheelchair... a non profit making epic costumes for kids in wheelchairs is having a kickstarter, and would like your help, to help the kids

They need your help to build 5 epic wheelchair costumes for kids in time for Halloween 2015! So please pledge and spread the word. The more money they raise, the more children they can build for in the future!

1) PLEDGE. Any amount is appreciated, but the more you give, the more children we can build for, and the cooler the rewards you'll receive! Even better, as a nonprofit organization, every dollar you donate to Magic Wheelchair is tax deductible, unlike most crowdfunding campaigns.

2) SHARE. Please let your friends and family know about the Magic Wheelchair campaign! Your support will not only help us build epic costumes for some great kids, but will also assist in spreading awareness about MD, SMA and the challenges faced by kids in wheelchairs.

3) VOLUNTEER. Magic Wheelchair wants YOU! If you're a designer, costume builder, craftsperson, social media master, or just want to do whatever is needed to help us on this journey, please let us know in the comments and there may be a place for you on the Magic Wheelchair team.

Where will the Kickstarter funds go?

Your pledge will primarily go to purchasing materials for these one-of-a-kind wheelchair costumes. If we raise more than our goal, we'll use the additional funds to build even more costumes! The more kids in wheelchairs we can help, the better!

How do we choose kids to build for?

Kids, with their parents’ permission, submit a 1-3 minute video telling us what they want to be for Halloween and why they should receive a Magic Wheelchair costume. Those selected get to work with designers and builders to create the ultimate wheelchair costume in time for trick or treating!

The Magic Wheelchair builders have made friends with the Stan Winston School (SWSCA) who are dedicated to inspiring and fostering creativity.

 By connecting leading film industry professionals with aspiring artists worldwide, SWSCA hopes to encourage a new generation to create the magic of tomorrow.

The entire Stan Winston School team is proud to support the Weimer Family and this incredible Kickstarter campaign. Please join us in helping Magic Wheelchair fly!

Although the costumes are only for children, you must be the parent or legal guardian in order to be eligible to be selected.
