Special Needs Swings - Newburyport

$3,750 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 44 people in 3 months

Having a child with a rare syndrome is full of challenges. One of those challenges should never be telling your child they can't use the swings. Wherever kids are laughing, playing and full of joy, no child should ever be excluded. Special Needs Swings allows children like Alex to be apart of our community - And put simply, every child should have a swing to play on. This Go Fund Me will work to raise money for the specific purchase of these swings. All donations will be given directly to the Newburyport Commission on Disability (NCOD) to work with the parks commission on this initiative. Please help us to support our children with needs and give them the ability to swing at parks! We thank you for your support! 

Also a special thanks to the Edwards Family for Lobbying to get this initiative in front of the town: See Link

We put a goal of $2,000. However, these swings are unfortunately very expensive.  Roughly $600-$1K each. Realistically the total initiative would need to generate approximately $10K.  This goal of $2K would be a great start!

Today we met with the Town of Newburyport to present our contributions for Special Needs Swings! Thank you everyone for your support. And a special thanks to Chris and Kasey Edward's. The Town has agreed to make this a priority and fund the additional monies required to make this initiative happen! This is the first step in our bigger goal. Our community can serve as an example to all others! Our vision is to have a full special needs playground in town - beyond just swings. Get ready local Mayors. We're looking to make appointments! Thanks Again for everyone's support - Every child deserves the opportunity to play on the swings!!!
