Inspiration strikes in the oddest of places.
In a bathtub. Under an apple tree. In Clive and Alison’s case, it was in a car. Talking about carpooling with a friend, and then thinking, ‘How about creating a carpool community for people caring for dependants?’
But that’s not where the story begins. The story began a long time ago, and involves all the different threads of Clive’s and Alison’s lives. Which all came together one day to spark an idea. An idea born out of love. Out of a sense of community.
An idea born because Clive has seen up close how disability restricted where his brother could go and how often. Because Clive and Alison have kids and understand the stress that parents go through. Because they’ve seen the difference it makes when neighbours help each other out. Because Alison helps to drive their friends’ kids to school, soccer practice, and dance class. Because she’s an active member of the local school’s Parents & Citizens committees. Because Clive carpools to work and understands how the system works. Because they both have the professional skills and background to turn this idea into a reality. And most of all, because they have a desire to make this world just a little better for the people who a need a little extra support.
So they talked about it, planned it out and floated the idea among friends and neighbours. People were enthusiastic. And highly encouraging. Now, Alison and Clive are proud to have PeepsRide out in the world.
And they want you to join them. Be a part of the PeepsRide community.
