Wouldn’t be great if your Christmas shopping not only blessed your friends and family but also went to support a special needs family? Look no further! You can support families with disabilities with the each of your online shopping cart! Today I am sharing with you some lovely special needs entrepreneurs whose small businesses go to support their family’s financial needs.
Marisa from MarisaMade is a special needs mom of two whose youngest was diagnosed with FoxG1 Syndrome, a rare genetic condition. MarisaMade is a creative studio with a love for illustration, watercolor, hand-lettering and stationary. Her Marisa Made Etsy store carries lovely products and beautiful holiday cards. A portion of the proceeds from her Christmas card sales is going to the FoxG1 Research Foundation for a Cure.
Mom Warrior Tee Company
Mom Warrior Tee Company is dedicated to Mom Warriors (Moms who fight for their children): moms that create hope when most have given up on their children. In their TeePublic store, you can shop tees for the Mama Bears you know!
At Home With Words
Kerith Stull, a special needs mom who has been featured here on Beautiful In His Time, has opened an Etsy shop selling wine charm favors for weddings and parties. Her 19-year-old daughter, Brielle, has cytomegalovirus (CMV) and cerebral palsy. Her shop also sells sheet music ornaments and map ornaments.
Andrea from AnM Pottery creates rustic and functional pottery inspired by nature. Over the past two years, her work became much more than just a hobby. It became an outlet for the growth and change she experienced after facing a serious medical crisis with her son, Jaxson. Jax was born more than 4 months early and spent 93 days in the hospital after he was born. He was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. This medical life is a stressful one – and Andrea has turned to the potters wheel to cope and create and to give life to hope. She sells her pottery via her Facebook page.

Stitchin’ for Sanity
Kelly from Kelly Seeks is “a special needs mom, a MOPS mom, a Army wife, a advocate, a insecure extrovert and a mom trying to find herself as a person again.”
She says this about life: “I don’t sugar coat my life or glue a fake plastic smile on my face. Outsiders seem to feel my life is stressful, emotional and hard to manage and wondering how I am not in a straight jacket yet. I tell them this is the only life I know how to live. I have discovered in order to balance the doctors visits, therapists, absent husband and normal mom guilt, I have become the champion of creative ideas, master of procrastination, and collector of unfinished projects.”
Leslie of Hawthorne Collection says, “I’m a DMDD mom and I own a boutique. We have 2 brick and mortar locations, an online store, and we employ moms of kids with disabilities.”
Kristin from LittleMamaJama is a resident of Wisconsin, DIY enthusiast, coffee addict and parent of two children with special needs. Her ebook, Bringing Positivity Into Parenting Neurodiverse Children, encourages parents to transform their relationship with their child by letting go of expectations and embracing neurodiversity.
Kristin has her own Etsy shop, NovotnyDesign: Printable Quotes. Rustic Decor. Upcycled Inspiration. Her printables are fabulous!
