Special Needs Mom Raising Awareness About The Need For An All Inclusive Playground In Her City
Description
My name is Mandi Riel and I am a special needs mom of 2 amazing children, Reese who has Aspergers, Bipolar Depression Disorder and ADHD and Lillith who is 4 and has Hypotonic Cerebral Palsy, Club Feet ( she wears braces on her feet), Moderate hearing loss in her right ear, speech and sound disorder as well as some other challenges she will overcome in her future. Due to their different needs and my daughters limited ability to get around a typical playground due to her handicaps I started looking into All Inclusive Playgrounds in our area. I was sad to have to travel an hour away just to go to a park with equipment safe for my daughter to use that was aldo made for children with typical needs as well. I started then bringing the attention to the disabilities committee and the news took off with it. Here is a live clip. We still need help as we have hit a stall. #OneMillionActsOfGood

#ellendegeneres we need you now more than ever. My city is now in talks about getting a pickleball court built instead of this park. I have worked so hard on this project to see it thrown away without completion. I raised funds for this and am worried it will all be for not. Please help!? I have written you a trillion times, this special needs mama needs your help to make all inclusive play a dream come true for the special needs community. I wish so much I could do more, but we are struggling to stay a float as it is. Please #ellendegeneres will you help me?!
