Why Help Us
Today’s consumers are sensitive to and aware of brands that are authentically contributing to social impact and are more likely to buy from those brands. Your brand will be associated in those hearts and minds with Inclusive Adventures activities and mission in powerful images, inspiring videos, news coverage, website, social media, and on our vessel. If you choose to provide us with branded products or materials they will be utilized in our events.
We provide a powerful, motivational story and would love to collaborate with you to share our now mutually inspiring story in your own marketing!
Your support is a social investment to which we provide leverage for you to profoundly impact the lives of children born with disabilities such as muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, and cerebral palsy, wounded warrior veterans who literally sacrificed limb and ability, disabled persons from traumatic accidents or disease such as ALS, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, and everyone's aging parents and grandparents.
Participating in a day cruise with us is FREE. Our board management is 100% volunteer. Most of our crew are volunteers. Our solutions are designed by the disabled for the disabled and predominantly implemented by ourselves mitigating costs and maximizing every dollar.
Of course providing bucket list experiences generally thought to be near impossible is costly. Marina fees, fuel, vessel modifications, and maintenance. However, by keeping operations recreational, non-commercial, and member oriented we should be able to continue to provide experiences at less than 25% of the market rate of $6000-$10,000 per person per week for a river cruise with 8-10 cabins. A private charter being a closer comparison we do even better. We rely solely on your generous donations and support to directly and impactfully change lives and perspectives through the crucible of self-discovery. Adventure provides participants with the rare opportunity and motivation to push beyond our preconceived self-imposed limitations.
Proven History of Success (more details)
We Believe In the Power of Inspiration and the Strength of the Human Spirit
Strong communities are created by valuing the talents of all members and encouraging all members to contribute those talents to the best of their abilities. But why would anyone try to achieve an education or contribute their talents through employment if they believe their only prospect is to sit in front of a television trapped in their own home frequently unable to change the channel or even answer the telephone?
We believe in the power of will, in discovery, and adventure. "I there's a will, there's a way!"
We provide a concrete, un-refutable example, if someone with significant disabilities can live on a boat and circumnavigate the eastern continental United States and Canada why can they not live in their own home in the community. On deeper and broader level we are working to expand public awareness to the social, community, and fiscal benefits of home care as an alternative to nursing home institutionalization!
