Shane’s Inspiration is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating universally-accessible playgrounds and inclusive programs to eliminate stigma towards children with disabilities in the U.S. & internationally.
We invite our families whose children with disabilities partner with buddies and enjoy our festivities together, connecting through play and common ground. Our community outreach program My PlayClub is hosted four times a year, one upcoming held at our Aidan’s Place playground in West L.A. (1350 S Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025). Our inclusive play events include fun Games & Activities, Face Painting, Arts & Crafts, Entertainment, and Raffle Prizes – free to all our participants!
Our last play event in May welcomed 186 children with and without disabilities, totaling up to over 300 attendees including parents and other family members. We anticipate approximately 150 children for this upcoming October event. Very exciting! Volunteers will help with:
Event set-up and break down, Refreshments or registration table, Leading game or activity area, Face painting, Being buddies to our My PlayClub members, Encouraging interaction between children with & without disabilities, etc.
