Thank you to all who donated!
The owners of your local Wendy's Franchise, Twin Coast Enterprises, Inc., recently became aware of Landyn and Shea's story
and are helping to raise funds for their "Safe Space". They've donated a pair of 2016 Red Sox
tickets as well as a $100 Wendy's Gift Card.
All donations benefit the Corner Kingdom Project
Our mission is to design rooms for children with disabilities or life-threatening illnesses, providing them with a comfortable place to sleep, play, and live.
We are currently designing a "Safe Space" for Landyn and Shea Chappie of Methuen, MA.
Landyn Chappie is an adorable 4-year-old who loves to spend hours playing with his whale figurines and race cars. He also has Autism. He is one of seven children, and is Twin B out of two sets of 'Irish twins'. Having a large family creates a challenged environment with many opportunities for triggers. Landyn rarely sleeps or eats, and requires constant supervision. He often attempts to escape outside to play, and becomes agitated when he cannot.
He is very sensitive to loud noises, whether they are happy, scary, or unexpected. He experiences very agitated responses to these triggers. He will push, hit, or kick to make whatever is bothering him stop. A lot of these responses are acted out towards his younger sister, Shea, who also has Autism.
Shea is a care-free three-year-old who loves to sing and dance. Simple things like bubbles, Disney princesses, and the song "Let it Go" bring out her adorable and dimpled smile.
Shea has social issues and tends to isolate herself from others. She will not participate in group activities, and prefers independent tasks or watching other children play from a far.
Shea can experience out bursts when things do not go her way. She is also the main recipient of Landyn's out bursts.
The Safe Space
Landyn, Shea, and the entire Chappie family will benefit from a Safe Space. This room can help prevent injury to both Landyn and his siblings. This will be the place where Landyn can safely play and interact, explore sensory zones, cut down on distractions and triggers, and cope during his episodes. It will also provide relief to the family who is constantly monitoring Landyn’s whereabouts and behaviors.
