Great stuff for children with special needs, but without special needs prices – and every penny of profit goes back into the parent charity, Tree of Hope, that helps sick children in the UK www.treeofhope.org.uk – which makes Blossom a win-win for everybody. Children get funky stuff. Parents save money. And the profits go straight to other sick children who really need help.
