The Garfoose isn't just
a musical, whimsical, purple and yellow giraffe/moose, he's a constant reminder of why we here at the Groovy Garfoose do what we do. You see, the Garfoose represents a belief: that physical and mental disabilities don't diminish us, but make us better, stronger, and more enriched as a people.
The term "special needs" is one that resonates with us here at the Groovy Garfoose because we feel special needs does, in fact, mean special
, unique, empowered and one of a kind—like, say, a giant purple and yellow half giraffe/moose who loves music.
The Garfoose is our way of showing that those things that make us different should be celebrated in a big, loud, and proud way.
