PostSubject: companies operated by people with Down syndrome   Mon Feb 02, 2009 3:09 pm

These 2 companies are located in the Virginia Beach, VA area. But, they both have websites and will ship anywhere in the US (maybe overseas too). I have personally met the moms behind these companies and some of the young adults employed by them too.

Creekside Cookies sells mixes to make cookies, muffins, pancakes, waffles, soups, sauces, butter and more! They even sell the famous Virginia peanuts. Their website can be found at: http://www.creeksidecookiesandmore.org/index.html

Simply Adorable Blankets is a group of young adults that make blankets by hand. They specialize in baby blankets and especially love making blankets for new babies with Down syndrome. They also make other types of blankets and can monogram a name, date, etc on the blankets too. They will work with you on selecting a fabric or you can give them a general idea and trust the girls to shop and pick something out for you. I have ordered many blankets from these ladies and given them as gifts to new parents and I assure you that they are beautiful. These ladies also made 100 blankets for the children in Xander's orphanage that we took as a gift when we travled to Ukraine. They send a brochure about their company along with the blanket and whichever young lady hand makes your blanket will sign the card as a keepsake for the new baby (or whoever you give it too). This organization will work with Ds support groups who would like to include their blankets in their new parent packages. Their website is: http://www.simplyadorableblankets.org/
