We've been talking about needing swings and trampolines. I'm sure many of you are in need of other things as well. I've had some time to myself today because my Mother-in-Law is visiting (HOORAY! I needed a break!!!) so I've done a lot of searching. I found an exchange group that you join through Yahoogroups. People might have a swing and be willing to give it to you for just the cost of shipping or something like that. I just requested to join the group. I hope it can help some of you. It's called Special Child Exchange. Click to go visit that page HERE.
Challenged America bought Marshall's Airwalker swing. They have a $500 limit but you can get some good stuff with $500! Apply for a grant HERE or email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org
