Yes, you read that right, there are more than one! This year we find ourselves in a precarious position with three amazing; extremely deserving kids and we want to help each of them. So instead of one large Big Splash project and several smaller (Ripple Effect) projects, we’re shaking them up and creating something in between, we’ll call it Mid Splash or ¾ Bath Giveaway.
How has another year gone by! We can't believe it’s that time again, time to give away a bathroom makeover to a deserving family in the Kansas City area and we need your help getting the word out. There are so many amazing families in our area that struggle to help their children with daily bathroom activities because most bathrooms aren’t built with accessibility in mind.
Amy Boeshaar was recently on KC Live discussing our 2018 Big Splash project and was lucky to have Nanette and Garrett Haskin join her.
Selecting a Recipient
This is the eighth year in a row Schloegel has been able to give away a bathroom. Each year we take nominations, which are made by a health or professional provider.
Ben Bass and his team have been diligently working on the Big Splash bathroom the past few months and the project just completed! Garrett Haskin, our 2018 Big Splash recipient, was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. These conditions have led to mobility challenges for Garrett throughout his life as well as many surgeries, more surgeries than any kid should ever have to go through.
Work has begun at the Haskin residence; our 2018 Big Splash recipient and we are getting excited to see the project completed! We introduced you to Garrett in December. Garrett is an amazing teenager who was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. Unfortunately, this has caused him some mobility issues.
We’re excited to introduce you to our 2018 Big Splash Bathroom Giveaway and Ripple Effect recipients!

Chris Peterson stopped by KC Live to share a little more about our Big Splash Bathroom Giveaway with Crystle Lampitt. Schloegel’s Big Splash is a unique bathroom giveaway where we take nominations and choosing a recipient is the hardest part of the process.
In December we introduced you to our 2017 Big Splash Recipients, the awesome Coots family and their sons Jonathan and Joseph. Last month we shared how the progress on their bathroom was coming along and this week we’re excited to show you their new bathroom!
Fox 4 Problem Solver’s Linda Wagar was there for the big reveal and put together a wonderful piece on the Coot’s and their new bathroom.
In December we introduced you to the Coots family, our 2017 Big Splash recipients. The Coots family has four boys including Jonathan (17) and Joseph (2). Both Jonathan and Joseph were born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. This has impacted their mobility and they both use wheelchairs.
We’re so excited to introduce you to the Coots family, our 2017 Big Splash recipients. The Coots are a family of six including their four boys. Two of their boys, Jonathan and Joseph, were born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.
Meet the Boys
While these conditions have caused neurological, orthopedic and other conditions for the boys it hasn’t slowed them down.
