The Disabled Traveler Branding Project

The Media Sandbox Street Team’s goal is to bring positive change to organizations through our creative strengths and abilities. This spring we want to give the Disabled Traveler a new brand image so they can easily provide information on handicap accessible travel.

The Disabled Traveler provides information for the physically disabled traveling in national parks and other travel destinations around the country. The Disabled Traveler showcases handicap accessible features through photography and maps to remove many of the unknown factors that concern visitors with a disability or age-related difficulties.

Your Support Will Make a Big Impact

We hope to raise $2,000 to help launch the Disabled Traveler’s new brand image. If more information is provided on accessibility, the website will be more effective in helping those traveling with a disability. Help us make the Disabled Traveler’s rebranding a reality.

With our skills and talents we will create a new website, logo and social media pages for the Disabled Traveler so that their information on handicap accessibility can be easily accessed by the public. Besides the rebranding work, we’re heading to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks over our spring break to document each park’s accessibility features. This way, we’re not only giving the Disabled Traveler a new brand image, but also creating content for their website that can help inform handicap visitors about what to expect at Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks.

Your generous donation will help us get to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks in order to document accessibility features. Please support us with any amount you can, as every dollar will make a big difference!

Don’t forget to take a moment and share this great cause with your friends and family to help us get the word out. Together we can make travel accessibility information accessible to all.


We are seeking funding through many venues, such as donations and sponsorships, but the power of the crowd is where you can help us the most! Our total budget for this trip includes:

Housing: $1500
Rental Cars: $1650
Gas: $1810
Airfare: $5860
Food: $1000
Equipment: $500
TOTAL: $12,320
