  • Looking to help someone in need in the developing world?
  • Currently using or previously used assistive technology?
  • Passionate about increasing access and well-being for wheelchair riders?

Then become a Whirlwind Advocate!

Whirlwind Advocates understand that a person who needs a wheelchair needs the right wheelchair.  The rugged, durable, safe and adjustable RoughRider can be this wheelchair.  As an advocate, you can contribute to the process and provide quality assistive technology to those with similar disabilities in developing countries.  Become a Whirlwind Advocate HERE.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Raise funds to support Whirlwind’s ongoing design and quality control efforts. We are constantly developing new products, improving existing designs, and helping build the local infrastructures.
  • Raise funds to buy wheelchairs. Either rely on us to decide where the chairs should be distributed or choose a specific country or organization.
  • Help sell the Whirlwind RoughRider® in the U.S. The RoughRider® is FDA approved for sale in the U.S., and all revenue goes to supporting Whirlwind’s non-profit mission in the developing world.
  • Participate in our Buy One/Give One Program. We will give away one wheelchair in the developing world for every one purchased in the U.S.

Here’s how you can do it:

  • Make presentations to local charitable and philanthropic organizations with Whirlwind provided promotional materials. (link materials)
  • Host neighborhood house party fundraisers. (link)
  • Donate here and tell your friends and family members to do the same.
  • Buy a RoughRider for your personal outdoor use.
  • Demonstrate how you use the RoughRider® to fellow users.
  • Promote the RoughRider® to organizations that attract wheelchair riders through sports and recreation.
  • Take a photo or video using your RoughRider and send it to us. We'd love to see your action shots.
