We believe that exploring the world drives curiosity and confidence in every child. Encouraging children with CP and related developmental delays to try new adventures and move their bodies in a fun and engaging way can grow skills, build relationships and foster inclusion.
“My daughter has been skiing since she was 5 years old because there are organizations providing adaptive equipment for kids with neuromuscular delays,” recalls WAWOS Founder, Jacquie Robison.
“There are so many nonprofits working hard to make recreational experiences a reality to otherly-abled children -- and some of them are working on a shoestring budget. We created WAWOS Wishes to support these nonprofits so more families can have greater access to these experiences.” .
Every year, beginning on Giving Tuesday, new grantees will be awarded financial support. Qualifying organizations must be registered 501(c) (3) and be actively operating in the United States for a minimum of two years. Final decisions are at the discretion of our board of directors.
