Endowment May 2015

After being in business for over half a year, Special Needs Essentials starts giving back to the community. Each month, a partner whose efforts resonate with Special Needs Essentials’ mission is selected to receive a portion of all sales made through the website. To contribute to this project, just make a purchase through the website and a portion of your total will automatically be donated! How cool is that?

In May 2015, the selected organization is Something Special Magazine, a free publication for special needs parents focusing on the positives in life. They give information and inspirationSomething Special - Special Needs Essentials for the special needs parents with the purpose of raising a different kind of awareness: not only that special needs children exist, but that they CAN DO. They also award a scholarship each year to attend college or vocational school to a student in Georgia who has autism or cerebral palsy. Check out their website!

To apply for a partnership, contact Deborah at dgrauzam@specialneedsessentials.com
