Donate to The Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer
The above links to information about a prototype that is working toward the more ideal custom-built trailer. While it is wheelchair accessible, it only seat 3-4 people in wheelchairs, and does not (yet) have an ADA accessible bathroom. The custom-built ideal version will seat 6+ people in wheelchairs, has ADA bathroom and side door, and even more wheelchair friendly features.
Here is a video summary about the Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer, and why it would be so useful and help so many people.
The Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer will improve providing free educational and therapeutic-based services,
currently limited mostly to Spokane, to expand delivery of these services throughout the Northwest and the rest of North America.
Services include using all forms of role-playing games: tabletop, live-action (LARP), guided choose-your-own-adventures/solo, and computer-based RPGs.

Question: "You're just solving the problem of getting to a table?
Aren't there plenty of other solutions to this problem?"
Answer: Yes it is possible to provide these educational & therapeutic services by other means at a much higher cost
and in far less ideal/safe/nurturing/accessible/equipped environments, as I have been doing for years, free of charge to participants. I have been
making the best of frequently inadequate facilities at game stores, rehab centers, senior care centers, community centers, colleges, libraries, etc.
I provide much more than just tabletop RPG services.
Therapeutic and educational goals are achieved using a wide variety of services, including:
live-action role-play (LARP), guided choose your own adventure, solo RPGs, & computer-based RPGs, not just tabletop games.
If you wish to know more of those details, see the videos, documents, and the other sections of this site,
and/or see the FAQs detailing all the reasons the trailer solves many obstacles regarding environment, social safety,
accessibility for people with disabilities, scheduling & cost availability, transportation limitations, hotels & facilities costs, etc.
The trailer will make provisioning of these services far more efficient, affordable, socially safer, and more effective,
for a broader range of people, across a much wider geographic area, than can be accomplished without the trailer.
My name is Hawke Robinson, residing in Spokane since 2004.
I volunteer at many locations helping people of all ages.
This includes using role-playing games (RPGs) to help people.
I run both regular and adapted games, for both regular and special needs populations.
Using Therapeutic Recreation methodologies, I design and provide, for FREE,
services for special needs populations throughout the greater Spokane, Washington area.
I also attempt to provide these services to other locations throughout North America,
but since I am providing these services for free, it has been very expensive to do so,
and so has greatly limited the number of people that can receive the many benefits.
The RPG Trailer will greatly reduce the costs, solve many logistics issues,
and greatly improve the efficiency of service offerings provided
to far more people than could otherwise participate.
I am registered with the Washington State Department of Health as a Recreational Therapist.
I am a part-time student at Eastern Washington University (EWU.edu),
working on degrees in Recreation Therapy, Music Therapy, Neuroscience & Research Psychology.
I am a member in good standing with the Washington State Therapeutic Recreation Association (WSTRA.org),
the Pacific Northwest American Therapeutic Recreation Association (PNWATRA.org),
and the American Therapeutic Recreation Association (ATRA-online.com).
The RPG Trailer will make it possible to provide these valuable
educational and therapeutic services to people all over North America.
