He Was Ignored His Entire Life Because Of His Disability... Until He Put On This Bear Suit
Because of his visible disability, Fabian says that he is often ignored in his day-to-day life. He says that it is to the point that many people will not even sit on the bus next to him. This video, showing Fabian getting affection from strangers on the street while dressed in a large bear mascot costume, is a video from Swiss charity organization Pro Infirmis. The group is trying to raise awareness of the lack of representation for people with disabilities. Along with public art projects to raise awareness, Pro Infirmis also provides relief services and counseling services for families, as well as a prep school for persons with disabilities to learn the skills needed for independent living.
