StopGap in Spacing Magazine and Happy Holidays!

We feel very fortunate to have had some amazing coverage in the media lately. Word is spreading and The Ramp Project is proving to be an effective way to create awareness about barriers in our built environment. Click here to check out a great article by Jonathan Zettel from Spacing Magazine!

We'd like to thank every single one of our supporters for all of their help this past year. From cutting plywood and brushing on primer to voting for us during our run for the Aviva Community Grant or simply commenting on one of our ramps that you may have seen in your community - you have helped us spread awareness about physical barriers that prevent many from accessing the spaces that they desire and have helped us get the conversation started about how we can solve these problems with really great solutions.

Enjoy a fantastic holiday season with family and friends, be warm and be safe.

Comfort and Joy

We received this in the mail a couple of days ago and were so touched by Katherine's supportive words and generosity, enclosed in the card was a $50.00 donation. Thank you so much Katherine, happy holidays to you and all of our supporters!

Thank you!

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who supported our Aviva Community Fund effort. It was really cool to watch the votes come in each day and a total rush to witness the number of supporters grow throughout the course of each voting round. Unfortunately our final vote tally at the end of the second round wasn't enough to get us into the semifinals but we are going to keep the dream of taking The Ramp Project across the country alive. We are beginning to investigate different ways of making such an adventure come to life and will keep everyone posted on our progress!
