Annual Autism Awareness Giveaway Hop April 11th to 17th
Thank you to Lindsay @ Just Another Book Addict, Heather @ Fire and Ice Photo, Pixie @ Page Turners, and Kathy @ I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for hosting!
April is Autism Awareness Month.
To help spread the word about Autism those wonderful ladies mentioned above are hosting a giveaway hop. Each participating blog is hosting a giveaway. You will find lots of variety among the prizes. Some of the blogs are giving away prizes that relate to autism, other blogs are giving away gift cards or other prizes and posting information about autism to help make others aware. We know the causes and treatment of autism can bring controversy. The point of this giveaway hop is simply to make people more aware about the subject by sharing information and experiences.
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a group of developmental disabilities that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. CDC estimates that about 1 in 88 children has been identified with an ASD. CDC is working to find out how many children have ASDs, discover the risk factors, and raise awareness of the signs. You can also find out more at AutismNow.org.
I think there are very few people who are not affected by autism in some manner or another. I have a family member who is autistic, and I have quite a few friends who are the parents of autistic children. I have no doubt that you have your own experience with it. I am not an expert on autism, nor am I going to provide a bunch of information that you can find yourself on Google. This is just me bringing your attention to the subject matter.
I would like you to share something you know about autism, a personal experience (if you are okay with that), or some piece of information that you wrestled from the Google Monster in the comments below. The incentive for sharing with the other hopping visitors is your choice of book, up to $12 (USD). It is international, as long as The Book Depository ships to your country.
- Leave a blog post comment sharing an experience you may have had with autism or a bit of information you found on Google. (I don't have to tell you guys to keep it civil, right?)
- Following is not required, but it is appreciated. Your options can be found on the right sidebar, though I don't have the pretty buttons yet.
- Sharing the giveaway is not required either, but spreading the word about my stop or the hop in general will be greatly appreciated.
a Rafflecopter giveaway Now is the time to hop along to the other stops!
