Magic Wheelchair is a nonprofit based in Oregon, started by Ryan and Lana Weimer. Three out of their five children have Spinal Muscular Atrophy, so creating these wheelchair costumes is a passion project for them.

In June of this year, the Weimers launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to build five wheelchair costumes for deserving children for Halloween 2015. Just three months later, 769 backers have donated $25,688!

Because of the overwhelming support Magic Wheelchair received, eight very lucky children will get Halloween costumes like a Mario Kart, a Frozen ice castle, and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles van. One thing's for certain, we can't wait to see these photos after Halloween!
