Washing your hands is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of illnesses and diseases. Little People deserve to be able to safely wash their hands in public restrooms without suffering the indignity of having to climb on to the counter or being picked up.
1 out of every 25,000 people in the US is a Little Person. This includes my 15 year old daughter Sienna who is a Primordial Dwarf. (www.livinglifesinnysized.com)
Please join me in appealing to businesses like Target, Costco and others to provide either a lower height sink, add a retractable step stool (like a Step N Wash or EZ Foldz Step Stool) or add a pull out step to the sink structure in their restrooms. This would greatly benefit Little People like my daughter, and also the millions of children who are unable to reach the sink without assistance from their parents.
In NO way does this movement wish to hinder sink access for those in wheelchairs. It is simply asking for better options for Little People and asking for solutions that would work for both. It's possible!! :)
