Take Ryan Weimer. He's an Oregon-based father of five who's always loved making Halloween costumes for his kids. Because three of his children have Spinal Muscular Atrophy and use wheelchairs to get around, Weimer was really good at working those chairs into their elaborate costumes. Doing so was always a big challenge--but oh-so-worth-it when his children's faces would be filled with joy each year.
This year, he decided to take his talents even further: He launched Magic Wheelchair, a nonprofit dedicated to making Halloween dreams come true for kids who use wheelchairs.
His costumes aren't just adorable; they're so detailed, not to mention amazingly creative and original--and they mean so much to the families who receive them.
"Giving families and kids those experiences that we’ve been able to have year after year, it’s awesome. I love it,” Weimer told BuzzFeed News. “My kids are seen as superstars and not looked at with sympathetic eyes or sadness.”
