Campaign End Date: December 31, 2015
People with disabilities comprise the largest and most diverse minority worldwide. Approximately 1 in 5 people in the U.S. have a documented disability and anyone can become ill or disabled at any time*. Whatever the cause or diagnosis, the most serious challenges in the world of disability are low expectations and a shortage of user-specific adaptations. Together, we can learn to challenge assumptions, create adaptations, and mobilize positive social change in NYC and beyond.
$500 will support ADA's "Never Say No" policy so a child can get an adaptation they need when and where they need it.
$1,000 will support ADA's "Made to Learn" education program for interns, classmates, and volunteers
$1,500 will support ADA's replication initiatives across the world
