Swap Positive listed as a resource for the Aging and Disability Resource Connection

Swap Positive is listed as a resource for the Aging and Disability Resource Connection!  Free Swaps include a variety of different swaps all run by volunteers. I know that those who identify as older or differently abled already attend many of our swaps, but if you would like to start a swap specifically for the aging or disabled, let me know and I’ll make sure to update the entry above to reflect your contribution to the Swap Positive community!  Wouldn’t it be cool to have a swap that could include things like wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, specialty clothing, or other unique and hard-to-find items for those who are recovering from an illness or injury?  If you’re feeling creative and want to start a swap specifically for those with Aging or Disabilities, here’s how. Then of course tell me about it so I can add it to the site.  Even a once a year event would be helpful and an awesome way to share resources!
