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!

Hello. I would like my sister to be selected to win one of the stroller wagons. She is a single mother, full-time student, works part-time and takes care of her five children with the age range of 3 months, 1 1/2 yrs., 2 1/2 yrs., 5 yrs. & 9yrs old. She has no support from the father of her children. Three of her children have special needs, it is very difficult for her to find a stroller with enough seats to fit her children in. This Stroller Wagon will be perfect for her. Knowing that this a very expensive one, she will never be able to afford it. This wagon will make her life much easier and less challenging to take her kids around, especially when they go outdoors, such as the zoo, park, aquarium, stores, doctor appointments. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Hello my name is Amy .. I have a 5 year old who was born with a chd and has had 2 open heat surgeries so far . He also had Down syndrome t-21 he is absolutely a blessing .. he loves to be outside and with the low muscle tone and the heart condition it’s hard to find a perfect stroller and I believe this would be great for us because he can sit up like being in a seat .. that won’t be bad for his hips as his pt says and an umbrella stroller will he is just to big for that .. I have heard wonderful things about wonderfold .. are insurance well it’s like talking to a wall when trying to explain everything to them and how he needs it even with drs backing us up .. so frustrating..

I would like to nominate my niece for a Wonderfold Wagon W4 Luxe Stroller. My niece is a single mom of two girls ages 5 and 3. She is expecting another baby girl in March 2024. The father of these kids provide no support and this would be so beneficial for her to receive this wonderful gift. My nieces mom helps support her but two years ago she lost her husband and doesn’t have much money to provide to my niece. My niece currently has a job at a restaurant but doesn’t make much money and tries to provide for her little ones. She makes a life for these little ones, even sacrificing some precious moments.

She would be able to put the little ones in this Wonderfold Wagon and be able to buckle them in order to keep them safe. My niece and her mom currently go to the mall with the girls who are ages 5 and 3. It’s such a struggle to keep them buckled in their current stroller with them having meltdowns . As her being a mom of two, soon to be three, she loves to take her kids out to the park, shopping, grocery shopping, and drs. appts. With this wagon it would be so much more room. The kids right now complain about not having enough room, which results in them kicking each other and then throwing tantrums. This wagon would keep them busy and would be such a change for the better and a blessing for her and her family.

Hello! My name is Chelsy but truthfully I am here to nominate any grandmother for a wagon to be donated. This woman is over the age of 70 and has fostered over 100 children prior to her husband passing away. She still to this day fosters children and has adopted multiple children who are all grown up with their own families. She recently adopted a wonderful little girl who is handicap. This wagon would be everything for her as for the child who just turned 5 can not walk. It would give room for all bags and medical supplies. If only I could afford to gift her one, she’d already have it.

Hi! My name is Alina and I am a full time working mother to, 2 little boys who are the absolute loves of my life! I’m nominating myself and my two boys because I am committed to giving my boys the life they deserve. Although I work full time our weekends are jam packed. Parks, family, & fun. My fiancé and I were blessed with our rainbow baby in 2020 after 3 miscarriages and then his brother a year later. With this wonderfold it will make just about every meltdown (myself included;) just A LOT easier.
