There is considerable planning involved in making public and private structures accessible. Sometimes it can’t be done, but most places are successful. A couple of friends of mine told me about something they came across. After ascending the wheelchair ramps to the entrance of a building, they were stymied to find two or three steps at the front entrance. Those steps created a barrier to anyone in a wheelchair that wasn’t a wheelchair athlete.
There seems always to be more work needed to make buildings wheelchair accessible. Perhaps it is the fact that many places are well done that make the bad ones stand out more… but I hear horror stories still.
Of course there are many who make huge efforts to help!
This strip* was published before as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name to “Wheel Tales of Willow City”.
“We’ll Make Cents” is an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a visit and check out their current project.
Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!
