As an individual with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and Learning Differences, I founded Paddington Enterprises, L.L.C., the parent company of Savings4Soldiers.com, in January 2011.
I was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 1999 at the age of eleven. Autism Spectrum Disorders are complex developmental differences that cause problems with social interaction and communication. Despite this diagnosis I have strived to achieve all that I can and help others along the way. I founded a non-profit organization whose goal it was to help others with ASD.
I, personally, view Learning Differences and Autism Spectrum Disorders as amazing blessings. Though often referred to as disabilities, these qualities are commonly looked upon as a disability that hinders lives and prohibits participation in normal activities and independence though this assumption cannot be further from reality. Having Learning Differences and an Autism Spectrum Disorder has allowed me to view life, problems, and social situations in a completely different manner, which has fostered unique insight and brought about new aspects to my life that have been truly invaluable.
I created the website based on his personal life experiences, volunteer position with the USO of North Carolina and admiration for the military community.
As a volunteer with the USO of North Carolina I’ve interacted with hundreds of military personnel and I’ve noticed that our military didn’t have a central resource to find companies that provide discounts or coupons for the service they require and businesses didn’t have a central resource to reach the military community, so I created one.
Savings4Soldiers.com recently launched and is the resource for the individuals of the United States Armed Forces to locate businesses that provide discounts or coupons for the service they require as well as the direct portal for businesses to connect with and give back to the men, women and families of the United States Armed Forces.
