Giving Kids the Gift of Mobility
Rebecca Orr, Marty Parazynski and Jeffrey Shorr of Bella’s Bumbas, a nonprofit organization that donates the mobility assistance chairs it designs to children who suffer from spina bifida or similar conditions, visited the Amherst, NH headquarters of Walkin’ Pets by HandicappedPets.com to meet with Mark Robinson, Founder and President of Walkin’ Pets by HandicappedPets.com to reaffirm their partnership.
Through this partnership, Walkin’ Pets has committed to providing wheels for every Bella’s Bumbas wheelchair built. Since the beginning of the partnership in March 2017, Walkin’ Pets has donated over 1,156 wheels to Bella’s Bumbas. Giving the gift of mobility to over 575 children.
Bella’s Bumbas wheelchairs are donated to children in need, families receiving wheelchairs only cover shipping costs. When the wheelchairs are no longer needed, Bella’s Bumbas requests that the wheelchair be given to another child that needs it. So far, wheelchairs have been donated to 48 states and 22 countries around the world.
Bella’s Bumbas also visited the charity, NuDay Syria in Derry, NH. Where they hand delivered five wheelchairs for Syrian refugee children. Instead of wrapping the wheelchairs in traditional packing material, these chairs are wrapped in blankets and clothing for the refugee children. Representatives from Walkin’ Pets went with Jeff, Rebecca, and Marty as they made their delivery.
