In an effort to become more than just the world leader of gloving and lightshows, EmazingLights and founder Brian Lim have created a new charity initiative called Glove 4 Glove. Inspired by 16 year-old Matthew Hernandez, a paraplegic who suffers from cerebral palsy, the Glove 4 Glove program aims to provide disabled Electronic Dance Music fans and festival goers with direct access to light gloves and lightshows in hopes of empowering them through self expression.
For Matthew Hernandez, who battles chronic paralysis in his limbs, an introduction to gloving from his older brother Mike led to a significant increase in right arm mobility, an improvement that even doctors could not comprehend. Since learning to glove, Matthew has appeared on Univision TV and frequently posts photos and videos of his gloving journey on Instagram under the handle @emazingmatthew. Along with clear physical benefits which include increased joint flexibility and fine motor skill development, gloving provides disabled EDM event goers purpose at the show, a hobby to pursue, and the opportunity to be mindblowing.
The Glove 4 Glove initiative is simple. For every Chroma 24 gloveset sold, Emazinglights will donate another to a person in need of self expression or foundations like the Walk and Roll Foundation, who assist people with spinal cord injuries as they attempt to lead uninhibited lives. In turn, these foundations will find interested people and distribute glove sets when necessary. Glove 4 Glove’s reach extends beyond physical injuries, and the number of success stories stemming from mental health related issues is also increasing. EmazingLights believes that everyone deserves the freedom of self expression, and through the Glove 4 Glove initiative, we will see that every person receives this liberty.
