Jewlery? Book? Toys? #forDeeds Twitter Party Giveaways

By now, you’ve read this post about getting stupid out of J’s vocabulary and the #forDeeds twitter party. What you might not know…

Twitter parties are about causes (sometimes a campaign for a product, sometimes a ‘movement’, sometimes donations, other times, just a group of gals getting together to sip wine and chat online). Most twitter parties, with the exception of the last one listed, have giveaways. This one is no different. I’d like to tell you about 5 giveaways!

From @GummyLump. To see what they’re about, click here.

The others are from me (@Special_Happens).

2. First and foremost, I have items from Future Horizons.

“Future Horizons was founded in 1996 in the belief that dissemination of information about autism and Asperger’s Syndrome through books, conferences, and other media would beneficially impact those who live and work with the condition, personally and professionally. Devoted entirely to supporting and fostering such works and programs, Future Horizons has grown to be a world leader in publications and conferences on autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.”

Future Horizons is my FAVORITE publisher for Autism, Aspergers and Sensory Processing Disorder information. For more information about them, click here. This giveaway is the “Behavior Solutions for the Inclusive Classroom” (review coming) WITH “How Do I Teach This Kid To Read?” (review here)…a $35 value.

What else?

Did you know I used to (in one of my other lives) make jewelry? Yes, for 5 years, I tortured my friends and family with jewelry talk, jewelry shows, jewelry photos, jewelry shopping, jewelry, jewelry, jewelry. I even still have some items in a fine arts gallery. However, that takes a lot of time! Likely as much as blogging, but with far more investment. I stopped. But #forDeeds, I’m giving away:

3. This:

4. And This:

5. And This:

Why? Well, obviously these items aren’t for children, but these are for women (and for men to give to women). Mothers, caregivers, teachers, therapists, the sitter…all the women in the lives of children with special needs deserve a little something for themselves…so why not jewelry to adorn their bodies for the short time they (cough) get away?!? Because, let’s face it, you can’t wear too much jewelry during a meltdown.

If you want a chance to win, all you have to do is attend the #forDeeds twitter party tonight at 8 pm to 9:30 pm. The giveaways will be throughout. See you there!
