Shareworthy Product

Recently I was asked to share about Caroline's Cart, and since I am not one of those super-mommies that can push a wheelchair and pull a shopping cart with grace... I didn't hesitate to agree! (*be sure to stop the music player at the bottom of our blog before viewing the video)


Their MISSION:
"Our Mission is to make Caroline’s Cart available to retailers everywhere, providing a quality product for special needs children that further enables their participation in mainstream society with their family through the common activity of grocery shopping."

Their VISION:
"Our Vision as the creators of Caroline’s Cart, is for it to be recognized as the preeminent shopping cart for special needs children in the U.S. and beyond. We hope that one day all retailers will provide an equal opportunity shopping experience for parents and caregivers of special needs children by furnishing them the option of a Caroline’s Cart. All families deserve to have this option, so they can enjoy the freedom of shopping with their special needs child."

The census bureau reports that 1.6 million children between the ages of 6 and 14 have a disability that severely limits their mobility. Those children have parents who would love to include them in everything, even the  most mundane task of grocery shopping. And since these carts can also accommodate adults, imagine the use beyond the population of disabled children... elderly with mobility issues, prevent wandering an ensure safety of autistic children or those with dementia, etc.

I know you'll agree that this would be an amazing thing to walk in to any store and find, so please help spread the word about Caroline's Cart to demonstrate the demand for these in your local stores!
