Giving of the Thanks

My nephew always refers to Thanksgiving as the Giving of the Thanks.

In that spirit, I thought this would be a great time to share links to resources and groups who help us throughout the year.

Feel free to share yours in the comments or on your site and link back here. I'll be adding more as time allows.

I'm thankful for the people with disabilities I've met this year for showing me what courage, hope, and strength look like. I'm also thankful for the client I work with who has dedicated his life to building technologies to help people with disabilities move toward their potential. Thank you all.
