2020 has been a rough year so we are even more excited to bring a little joy into the lives of a local family with our Big Splash Bathroom Giveaway. We need your help finding an amazing and deserving child with special needs, in the Kansas City area. There are so many wonderful families in our area that struggle to help their children with daily bathroom activities because most bathrooms aren’t built with accessibility in mind.
We are so excited to reveal Henry Flores’s new bathroom. It’s a unique bathroom designed for an amazing kid.
Here's a peek at Henry showing off his new bathroom.
Henry's Existing Bathroom
Henry Flores is an amazing little boy who already has overcome obstacles you and I couldn’t imagine! He was born without arms and legs.
Late last year we announced our three 2019 Big Splash recipients; David Uria, Sage Rovenstine, and Henry Flores. It was just too hard to select one! Read more about them. And while the plan was to do a partial remodel on each of their bathrooms, the Schloegel team couldn’t help themselves and all three boys will end up with a brand-new bathroom.
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!
Meet Garrett Haskin

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.
