Together we can build a future for Genevieve and people like her with the Carousel Challenge:
Originally Carousel Challenge was created to fund the building of a 'Carousel Village' Developmental Center to replace the Santa Barbara carousel and a whole lot more. We found this endeavor to be overwhelming and nearly impossible after the COVID Pandemic hit, with no financial support.
Do you want to be part of this? It's easy; get on a Carousel, take a ride, and tag us on social media!
Here's where you can find Genevieve's Carousel Challenge online:
So, why are we doing this?
The love of Genevieve - this girl loves carousels so much and has her whole life. In 2017, her hometown Santa Barbara removed a beautiful Carousel that she had ridden since she was a tiny child - you can check out photos and videos from there on this website. We tried to form a nonprofit in hopes that would create a movement in the upscale area we live in, but the Carousel that's been loved for hundreds of years has become outdated to many municipalities.
What you should do for the Love of Genevieve
Find an open carousel around you, hop on a horse, and take some photos for Genevieve. Follow her pages and you'll fall in love with the simplistic beauty that she has - as well as Genevieve herself. She's a living Angel everyone should know about that has thrived and survived in a world of nonacceptance.
Show how much you care about people like Genevieve today and ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE - Take a Ride!
Kids with Autism and other disabilities are often the last in the pack when it comes to public fun - but one place they always thrive is on the Carousel and Genevieve is a perfect example.
Since she was a little kid she rode the same beautiful carousel horses - and over a decade later it's now gone. But we can change that and at the same time let the world enjoy Genevieve's favorite ride in the world - we're working on that plan now!
We've got some interesting plans for the future -
But for now? Get on a carousel and ride for Genevieve, make sure you've followed all of our social media pages, and tag us in your fun-loving photos!
Compassion and Love created our family and will also be the fuel that runs this challenge.
Thank you for being part of it.
Disabled kids like Genevieve ask us for so little, her own local carousel was put into a museum and this challenge was created to bring that ride back to town way back in 2019 - and despite efforts, that has not happened. So, we've changed a few things to help create a Home Base for the Carousel Challenge.
Please make contact with Genevieve's Dad, Mike Robinson, with questions on how you can support the Carousel Challenge in other ways.
Genevieve in her her favorite moments of bliss. She lives for 'her ride'' as she calls it. It's amazing to watch as she overcomes all of the hurdles. The loud sounds and the crowds don't phase her as she will do anything to get to that ride. This Carousel closed in late 2017 leaving her with nothing but videos on her iPad and dreams she wakes up in the middle of the night from - she thinks she's on this ride every single night and will tell us in her own way how upset she is that it's not there.
People want to give to kids like Genevieve but just don't know how or where it will help them. Having a life that is continually a challenge is what Genevieve lives with - including trying to understand why the Carousel left town.
You can make her Dream come true.
Go for a ride and tag our social media pages.
