I cannot believe we are 5 days into October already!! Time is just flying by too quickly! I have been busy with school events and Kameron was down sick for several days last week. He's back up and running now though... it was a nasty virus that just hit him hard. Thankfully no one else got it!
As you ALL know, October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month!!! :) There are some very special things in the works that I can't wait to share with you, and two of them I get to share with you RIGHT now! :)
FIRST, remember when this happened? WELL, the Libert's Catalog finally came out and we were thrilled! :) Kennedy had a great time looking for pictures of her and her friends on all the different pages. We were especially excited to partner with Libert's for a special fundraiser on this costume which has its proceeds going to the Be Beautiful, Be Yourself Dance Classes at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation. If you would like to purchase this costume for your studio or your dancer, check it out here. (I believe it's on back order right now, but it should be back in stock soon!)
Libert's Dancewear is excited to partner with the Global Down Syndrome Foundation for a tribute to these amazing dancers. We have seen them glide across the floor in ballet, tap their little hearts out, and rock the stage in jazz and hip hop. Whether they are practicing in class, showing off for family and friends at recital, or competing at national competitions, they always leave their soul on the dance floor and give it all they've got. Proceeds from this very special costume will be given to the Global Down Syndrome Foundation to help continue their Be Beautiful Be Yourself Dance Classes for individuals with Down syndrome. You can learn more at http://www.globaldownsyndrome.org .
NEXT I have an amazing GIVEAWAY for you in honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month (AND I have a different one for you at the end of the month so that will give you something to look forward to!). This one is sponsored by my awesome friend Laura who sells Origami Owl. Let me tell you, if you don't have an Origami Owl Locket, I get compliments on mine ALL the time! Everyone loves it!! This one is especially designed to honor our loved ones with Down syndrome...
Isn't it fabulous?! There are a couple different ways you can modify this necklace if you win. So, HOW do you win, you might be wondering?! Well, FIRST go LIKE my friend Laura's Facebook page! She has lots of fun stuff going on ALL the time! THEN leave me a comment here on my blog (comments on my Facebook page don't count) and you are entered to win! AND if you share this post on your Facebook page and leave me a separate comment here telling me you did so, you'll be entered to win a second time!! :)
Furthermore, if anyone would like to purchase this necklace, for the month of October, Laura will be giving proceeds back to the Global Down Syndrome Foundation in honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month! This necklace would make a GREAT gift for new mothers, grandmothers, godmothers or anyone who supports and loves individuals with Down syndrome and the proceeds go to an AMAZING cause! SO if you're interested in buying, please send Laura or me a message and we will get you all set! You can check out Laura's site here to order and see ALL her stuff and you'll see the fundraiser for GDSF at checkout! :)
I will choose a winner using random.org in two weeks on October 19th!! Happy shopping!! :)
