Magic Wheelchair -- a non-profit organization founded by the Weimers, parents of five children, three of whom have muscular dystrophy -- aims to "put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair" this Halloween. And they're pulling out all the stops to make the costume game of wheelchair-bound children the envy of their neighborhoods.
It all started a few years ago, when the couple launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to design their son's rad "How to Train your Dragon"-inspired Toothless costume.
As explained on their website, "what really set this whole project in motion [was] five years ago when [my first son] Keaton got his first wheelchair. Enter Halloween 2008. 'Hey, pal. What do you want to be for Halloween?' I ask. Keaton thinks for no more than a second and responds, 'A pirate.' [...] I realized, 'Keaton has this wheelchair he cruises around in, and every pirate needs a ship, so let's just build one around his chair!' I didn't know how I was going to do it, but I knew it could be done somehow."
Now, the goal is to spread the joy and craft with as many customized costumes for children in wheelchairs as possible.
Eight children are expected to be helped by this year's Kickstarter haul -- including a SpongeBob SquarePants speedboat design for a 12-year-old girl named Jade and a Quinjet ride from "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." for a 14-year-old boy named Hunter.
