I need feedback so I can help

I’m working  really hard to partner with companies that want to provide products for giveaways.  My recent partnership with Idolian means that I will be able to giveaway android tablets on a regular basis. 

To me, this is really cool. 

My goal has always been to help people.  My hope is that by providing the opportunity to obtain a tablet at no cost, I’m doing just that.

I’ve just started another partnership that will allow me to giveaway accessories for popular devices that are used by people everyday. 

My question  is, what kinds of products would benefit your family?

Obviously I can’t promise I can do that but it will give me a sense of direction. 

Off the top of my head, I can envision future giveaways that could provide things like flash cards, tablets, sensory friendly clothing, weighted blankets, grocery gift cards etc. 

Would these be helpful?

I know that any of them would be helpful to my family.

My dream at this point is to be able to make a difference in people’s lives.  Maybe not a huge difference, but enough to improve their lives,  even just a little.  I want them to know that someone out there cares about them and their family.

Families like mine work so hard for everything.  I know what that’s like and I know difficult it can be.  I also know that we don’t typically ask for help either.  However, I want to provide helpful things via the giveaway route as often as I can. 

In order to keep these companies interested in doing this, we need to get as much participation as possible.  You can enter to win these items for yourself or someone else.  You don’t have to be autistic or have an autistic child to enter either.  While I would like to think that every device will go to a family that benefits, I need to keep the interest high so that more people can have a chance to win something that can help their family.

Check back frequently because I will try to add new ways to enter as often as I can. 

I do this because I truly admire and respect all of you and I know what it’s like to be parents to our amazing kids.  I don’t get paid to do this.

I just want to help. That’s it. No strings attached. 

All I ask is that you help me spread the word about these giveaways.  The more attention they get the more the companies benefit and the more they are will to help.

Thanks a lot everyone.  I really appreciate all of you.  🙂

As a parent of a child with special needs, who is ALSO disabled, it’s hard for us to do many of the things that most families do, simply because of our financial inability.  I run a blog myself, and do reviews and giveaways, and often, I look for products/services and even books that I can use, mostly because I can’t afford them on my own.
For my son, some sort of tablet would be the best thing for him, so he is able to use many of the apps that his therapists and teachers use, in an effort to assist in his therapy as much as possible.  Next to that, any sort of music player (mp3 etc) because we’ve found that with his anxiety, being able to close off from the world and listen to music when he’s REALLY going through is a BIG help for him.
Beyond that…
gift cards for food would be helpful, gift cards for gas, for the many, many trips to Children’s Hospital for his 3x weekly therapy…
As far as spreading the word… I’ve already listed your site on my for “parents of children with special needs” information/resource page on my blog, and am happy to spread the word on your site/giveaways as much as possible.
I run giveaways myself, and one way to assist in that, is in the rafflecopter.  For example, you could give an extra entry if someone posted the giveaway on a giveaway ‘linky’  (this is basically a page that promotes giveaways- there’s one on my site).
When I run giveaways, I often try to get other bloggers involved.  For example, I would offer a blogger a link on the rafflecopter to their facebook page (the same way you did to ‘like’ your facebook fan page) in exchange for publishing the giveaway on their blog, then promoting it via facebook and twitter.
I have over 5,300 twitter followers, and over 3,000 facebook friends and fans.  This can go a long way if you find good promoters.  🙂
I’ve already entered your cafepress giveaway, and will be back for every giveaway you post.  I will be happy to do my best to spread the word, mostly because I believe in what you’re doing.  
Please let me know if there’s any way I can help.  I belong to over 15 blogger groups on facebook with thousands of members between them.  🙂
Thanks for listening to my VERY lengthy comment…Marianne
