Kid goodies giveaway: Win a supercool crown or cape for your child
My blog pal Melanie, mom to Daniel, has been hand-making absolutely gorgeous felt crowns and capes for kids. Daniel, who totally reminds me of Max, also has cerebral palsy, as well as infantile spasms and a rare brain malformation called bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria. Melanie writes the blog Better Than Normal, and she has a strong grasp on reality and good sense of humor. She's been making stuff to pay for Daniel's alternative therapies, ones not covered by insurance. ALL proceeds from her handiwork go toward helping her son.
Melanie's Etsy shop is filled with adorable crowns. How can a kid not love them? She also makes ones by request, in pretty much any design you can think of, and she offers party packs for birthday celebrations (or any kind of celebration).
These are some of my faves, aside from the cape and crown Melanie recently made for SuperPurpleMax and Sabrina:
Melanie has offered to make three custom crowns for three random winners. To enter, please leave a comment telling us what kind of crown you think your child would like.
BONUS entries: After you leave your main comment, leave a separate one for each of the following that you have done:
• Head on over to Melanie's blog and say hi to her and Daniel.
• Follow Melanie's blog, while you're there.
• Tweet about this giveaway and leave a comment with your tweet time stamp (translation for Twitter newbies: click on the time below the tweet, which shows you the URL). You can use this tweet: Win a beautiful custom-made kid's crown or cape from @LoveThatMax, ends 5/25, http://tinyurl.com/26tmqkv, #giveaway
This giveaway is open until Tuesday, May 25, 2010, 11:59 p.m. EST, and is for U.S. and Canadian residents. I'll pick the three winners via randomizer.org, announce the winners the next day, and alert you by e-mail.
Please let friends know about this giveaway, and Melanie's handiwork. She's a talent, and did I mention all proceeds go toward helping her son?
Update: The winners are Jessie, Christina and smgoodie. Congrats!
