About the event

🎉 Join Us for the TMT Making Party: Building Smiles, One Wheel at a Time! 🎉

Picture this: Pizza, music, and a room filled with enthusiastic folks coming together to craft a toddler mobility trainer! 🍕🎶

We are thrilled to invite you to a heartwarming gathering like no other - the TMT Creation Carnival! This unique event is dedicated to assembling and donating Toddler Mobility Trainers (TMT), giving the gift of mobility to little ones who need it the most.

When & Where? Join us for a day filled with compassion, creativity, and community spirit. Stay tuned for the exact date and location!

What’s Happening? At the TMT Make Party, you'll have the chance to:

  • Assemble TMTs: No prior experience is needed! We'll guide you through the simple, yet impactful process of building a TMT.
  • Meet Amazing People: Connect with a community of volunteers, families, and children who share a passion for making a difference.
  • Spread Joy: Witness the incredible moment toddlers take their first ride in their new TMTs – a priceless experience.

Why Join? This product helps kids learn to move in a seated position independently, eliminating the need for lower limb mobility or strength. Your hands and heart can make a real difference. By participating, you're not just building a mobility trainer; you're building confidence, independence, and smiles for toddlers and their families.

Donating Made Easy Can't make it to the event but still want to contribute? No problem! Contact us to donate or sponsor a TMT. Every contribution brings us closer to our goal of mobility for all. Each mobility trainer's cost of material is $300, we are looking for $3,000 donation to make 10 toddlers more independent. 

Let’s Make Magic Together Grab your friends, family, and colleagues, and sign up today! Your involvement means the world to us and the families we support. Let’s build, donate, and celebrate the gift of mobility together.

Together, we're not just building wheelchairs; we're building futures. See you at the TMT Creation Carnival! 🎈✨
