My Add On is built on a passion for helping people
My Grandmother is a proud woman. Head up high, always smiling and never complaining. Until the day she had to walk with crutches. They always fell down for people to fall over and they hurt her hands. I wondered how it was possible that these problems were still unsolved after decennia. So I decided to do something about that and help my grandmother smile again.
“Ever since I was little, whenever I saw a a problem, I was already solving it. It’s amazing how many small things can irritate you on a daily basis, and people often let them. I believe you can be the one solving that problem. Think outside the box and you’ ll see, a smart, yet simple solution is never far away!”
