Alabama mom’s special needs shopping cart makes splash

Drew Ann Long, the Alabama mom who created a shopping cart for children with special needs that has captured the attention of Target, Walmart and other major retailers, has no plans to slow down.

Long and her invention, Caroline’s Cart, have been in the media spotlight in recent months, since Target said it was putting the carts in its stores nationwide. The Today Show, CNN, I Heart Radio and more have come calling.

The Target announcement brought Caroline’s Cart the most attention it’s ever had, and there’s also been a bump in sales. But Long says she’s far from reaching her goal.
