My 4 1/2 year old son Makye is a fun loving, adventure seeking, high energy little guy... & I feel like I'm letting him down as a father today. 

He has ASD3 non-verbal, & is the happiest kid in the world when he's out in nature or just running around outside. Though he can get a bit rambunctious when couped up in the house all day. His mother isn't around to help, so I've worked long hours since He was born to foot the bills, relying heavily on family to watch him while I was away. 

I've alway been a hard worker, & so with God on our side we were able to make things work. The balance we'd found involved a lot of walking around, going to parks & photography of all things. Always having held a dormant passion for it myself, finding it reignited by Makye's utter infatuation with wildlife. When I get a really good picture of a bird or a bug, I laminate it on a small square.

When he sees it, he jumps around flapping his arms; Pure joy. He carries the pictures around with him at times, pointing to them over and over because he loves to hear their names. This great please of ours is amplified when out in nature himself, yet that's no easy task. 

He has no palatable understanding of danger, loves water and is always running when not strapped down. Traffic, deep water.. None of it dissuades him in the slightest even though he cannot swim. Finding the means to securely take him out into nature was difficult, so I was generally only able to take him the playgrounds at the state parks. 

Well things got a bit more wonkey lately. I've been laid off due to the coronavirus from a job I earned one hundred times over, & since we live in florida the threat of the virus is very real. Makye has a vulnerable immune system, & both my parents who help so much with him have pre-existing health conditions to accompany their ages (64 & 74). 

This means the playgrounds are no longer an option. He's getting restless, I'm near broke, and we're all afraid of my family getting sick... So the little guys getting very restless in quarantine. That's why I'm asking for help (which is very hard for me to do) so that I can take him on some adventures by bicycle in a safe way.

Frankly, I had no idea how much such a thing would cost fiscally. Being behind on bills, this whole thing seems like somewhat of fantasy. Nevertheless, I'm trying because it shouldn't be about me at all. The little guy deserves to be able to safely experience the things he loves, even if I can't be the one to make it happen for him. 

I'm not sure how or if this crowdfunding source works. It just prompted me while I was trying to pick my jaw up off the ground after seeing the cost of these things. If anyone reads this and can help, please do. It would really make the little guys year!
