It’s our favorite time of the month again. WonderFold Cares has developed so much and we couldn't be more grateful to give to more families in need. If you or a loved one is in need of one of our Wonderful Wagons, submit a story! We would love to hear from you and hopefully you or your loved one will be selected to win one of our stroller wagons.

WonderFold Cares | April 2022

It’s our favorite time of the month again. WonderFold Cares has developed so much and we couldn't be more grateful to give to more families in need. If you or a loved one is in need of one of our Wonderful Wagons, submit a story! We would love to hear from you and hopefully you or your loved one will be selected to win one of our stroller wagons. For the month of April, we had the honor of giving stroller wagons to multiple families and organizations. 

WonderFold has had the privilege of donating to numerous nonprofits and organizations where we gifted outr W1 models for auctions for organizations such as the Chicago Autism Light It Up Blue Event; the TCP Care Auction where Wonderfold was actually one of the top three performers and was able to raise $5000 to help those diagnosed with Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy; the Charlotte Schwieger Leukemia Auction; and Gigi’s Playhouse.

Here are some of the stories from our recipients last month:

Jessica is one busy woman. With her fourth children coming this July, her and her husband have a lot on their plate. That’s why Jessica’s best friend nominated her for a WonderFold Wagon. The two women have been best friends since they were five. That is 24 (!) years of non stop laughter, support and love. The two met in pre-school and are now navigating the tribulations of adulthood and motherhood. Jessica is now a full-time mom after being a preschool teacher and her husband wears a lot of hats - namely, a fulltime firefighter, EMT, an ER psych department employee and a basketball coach. Phew! That’s a lot of hats! And we also cannot forget that, even while pregnant and being a mom of three, Jessica offers to help other families who may be returning back to the office with childcare. This couple doesn’t stop! But everyone needs some rest and relaxation, especially this couple. They love to have walks in the park, go to the pond and do some fishing, and visit their dad at the fire station. With three babies and a fourth one on the way, there aren’t a lot of options for larger families. And with Jessica and her husband’s hands so full, they deserve to have them free on their family outings. Which is perfect with their brand new X4 Stroller Wagon! With the weather being warmer and a July baby, this family is gonna have a great summer. 

The Rijksens have traveled a long way for their family. The family emigrated from Aruba to the United States in search of better healthcare opportunities for their daughter Lunah. Lunah had been denied life-saving interventions, including a heart repair procedure, in the Netherlands and Colombia. In Aruba, even with socialized medical insurance, Lunah with her T18 diagnosis have not been able to get the treatments that she needed in time. The Rijksens had to leave their entire life including their other kids and family back in Aruba for the care of little Lunah. But everyone is on the same page that Lunah’s recovery is top priority. The family made the move to the US in 2016 and since then, Lunah is getting the care that she desperately needed in Utah. Though there are still some uncertainties with Lunah’s medical challenges. Despite her medical journey, Lunah is happy and healthy and loves to be outdoors. The Rijksens want Lunah to live her life to the fullest. Wonderfold gifted the Rijksens a W1 Stroller Wagon for Lunah and all her adventures.

Ashley Surch is a mother of two little kiddos with a spouse in the military. While her partner is deployed, Ashley loves to take her children out on adventures. To the park, museums, pools, the world’s their oyster. And we love to see it. With a partner that’s away all the time, it’s tough being alone with two children. The Surches were gifted a X2 Stroller Wagon for all their adventures.


Angie and her husband and their two kiddos, Gianna and Ronan, are a military family who are simply trying to make ends meet. Ronan is almost two but had a terrifying experience at the start of his life. He was only three days old when he was rushed to the hospital and kept in the PICU for almost a month. After months of countless tests, Ronan was diagnosed with Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia which is a rare metabolic disorder. The first year of Ronan’s life was tough to say the least and it led Angie to staying at home to be with the kids. And with her husband being deployed and living on a single income, the Ebojo’s are making the most out of their situation. Ronan continues to surprise his family and is taking on his medical challenges on the chin. In June of last year, Ronan was diagnosed with another rare disease - Kawasaki disease. With all the therapy, tests, and numerous doctor’s visits, Ronan’s first two years of his life hasn't been the easiest. And being a military family, the Ebojo’s don’t have a lot of family close by making trips to the doctors a little harder as little Gianna joins them. Taking two kids, along with all of their belongings, including medications is a lot on Angie. But with their brand new W2 Stroller Wagon, the Ebojo’s trips to the doctors will be a little bit easier.

Whew! Another month down, folks! If you or a loved one - whomever that may be, are in need of a WonderFold Wagon, we would love to hear from you. Submit your story here. Parenting is hard enough and without some resources, it can further push us. A WonderFold wagon can make it a little bit easier. I said a “little bit”. See you again in May!

Hi Wonderfold :) We live in the UK and have twins who are 1 year old & a 3 year old who is autistic and needs to be in a stroller when we go out due to her meltdowns, as she could hurt herself. This means that I cannot take all 3 of my children out at the same time as I am unable to push both the twin pram & my 3 year old’s pram at the same time. This has left me feeling trapped at home throughout most of my maternity :( The wagon would enable me to take all three children out for some much needed fresh air on a regular basis when I am on my own & give me a sense of freedom I have previously thought was not possible. Since the cost of childcare for all 3 children (so I can return to work part time) takes up my entire wage, I could not afford to buy the wagon myself so I would feel absolutely blessed if I was lucky enough to win it. Please do consider us as it would be life changing :)

Wonderful wagon! Im jovil breeding 34 with 3 wonderful boys ages 14,11 and 3. Just last june we found out that my son kyle (11) has a hole in his heart and its too big that he needed to have an open heart surgery. So just few days ago he finally had an open heart surgery in childrens medical in Dallas, Texas. We recently staying at ronald mcdonald house since my son have an post operation appointment on Tuesday. My kyle is a non verbal kid and has mild autism so basically he can’t tell anyone if he’s in pain but only me (not sure how maybe mother’s instinct) i can tel when walking or even jst moving is painful for him so recently we borrowed the wagon from the ronald mcdonald house and it’s so convenient for my kyle and my benjamin (3yr old) to load them and walk around the park. And I thought of getting one, so today i posted on one of the parents facebook group i joined if anyone can recommend me a good foldable canopy wagon and most of the parents told me this brand but unfortunately I cannot afford it since my son just got out of the hospital. So if i win this it will be really great help not just for me but for my kids to get around. Thank you sooo much for having this kind of give aways ♥️♥️♥️

Hi Wonderfold wagon. My name is Brooke, I have 4 kids all 6 and under. My kids are 6,4,3 & 2. My 2 year old hair started walking a couple of months and my 3 and 4 year old get so worn out on walks. Also, we walk to go pick up big brother from school and we could greatly benefit from the 4 seater wagon with the seats for them to sit down comfortably in it on our walks. Thanks so much for reading this.

Hi my name is Yaritza Solivan I’m a mom of 4 kids Ranging in ages 25 to 5 years old. I’m awesome like grandma of 3, Ages 4 to 1 years old. And my middle grandson being autistic. It will be wonderful if I can get the 4 seater wagon. I can’t afford a a special stroller be he love to seat next to the other kids but the double strollers are to wide to take places. And I live taking them all places but it hard to keep them all in one place when I pushing the stroller. So putting them in the wagon would be awesome and I’ll be able to take them more places. I see one in person and fell in love with it and it And there was actually a family with an artistic child that own one I talked to them about the product and they love itThank you for taking the time to read this

Hi, my name is Nicole I am a busy mom to 4 littles. My youngest Joe has Down syndrome and would benefit greatly if we were picked to receive a Wonderfold wagon. Joe is a very curious kid who doesn’t have a sense of self preservation, which leads to elopement and makes outing difficult. Joe loves to be outside exploring however with low muscle tone it makes him tire out easily. Receiving a wagon would give Joe more freedom to be outside with his siblings and peers but give him the safety and comfort he needs. Thank you.

Nicole
