CLEVELAND, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Through the month of October, www.differentneedz.com is celebrating its one year anniversary. DifferentNeedz.com is the first and only dedicated website that allows the special needs community to buy and sell gently used and new medical equipment, therapy devices, adaptive toys and more. DifferentNeedz.com provides an avenue for special needs individuals, families and organizations to acquire quality necessities for daily life at significantly reduced prices.
This is not an auction site where the sale price goes up and purchasing takes days. DifferentNeedz.com offers products for immediate purchase at discounted fixed prices. DifferentNeedz.com encourages the special needs community to recycle their gently used equipment that is no longer being used. DifferentNeedz.com suggests that sellers price gently used items at 50 percent of their original price. DifferentNeedz.com is for all ages and all types of disabilities.
Inspired by their own special-needs child, Karen and Bret Jordan are part of the group that founded DifferentNeedz.com. "Our son has opened our eyes and our hearts to a new world of very special people who bring joy to many lives but whose daily needs and wants often go unfulfilled. As a reliable source for discounted, quality products, DifferentNeedz.com hopes to change the way that the special needs community is treated by retailers," said Karen Jordan
The Founders of DifferentNeedz.com have established the DifferentNeedz Foundation, a 501(C)(3) foundation whose mission is to help improve quality of life for all with special needs by providing money to families and community organizations. DifferentNeedz.com donates to the DifferentNeedz Foundation with every sale.
"The special needs community has needed a website like this for a long time. DifferentNeedz will benefit so many people that really need the equipment and the cost savings. I personally know the founders and they are truly committed to helping the special needs community," said Don Rice, Superintendent of Geauga County, Ohio MR/DD.
Sellers post items for sale with descriptions, photos, price and shipping costs. "We make buying and selling at DifferentNeedz.com quick and easy," said Dan Lindner.
DifferentNeedz.com is an online marketplace dedicated to offering new and gently used medical and special-needs equipment for sale and re-sale. DifferentNeedz.com was founded in 2008, by Karen and Bret Jordan, Dan and Mary Beth Lindner, all of Cleveland, Ohio and John Nix of Hampton, Virginia.
