Inclusion Happens In Many Different Forms
April was Limb Loss Awareness Month. And it was the month that more and more bitmojis for people with limb differences started showing up. Hedgehog1171, as he is known on Instagram and other social media platforms, is one of the creators of a variety of the small icons. A student from Wales, hedgehog1171 has just posted picture #100 on his feed. And he was so kind to send us a few to use on The Active Amputee. Thanks!
It Started With One Happy Friend
„My motivation to draw amputees started in 2016. I had recently downloaded Snapchat and was using bitmojis a lot. A thought came to me that not everybody could actually create a bitmoji that is personal to them. I started editing bitmojis using other apps and ended up making one for an amputee friend. She seemed really impressed! I thought, if my drawings managed to make one person happy, why not make more for people with different types of disability? And the idea of creating amputee bitmojis just came from there.“
Well done. Keep it up! And thanks for the picture.
