Purpose: To promote a charity that you support.

All bloggers will be giving away an item related to their charity or something book related.

****

The charity that I am featuring for this event is Autism Speaks. My youngest was diagnosed with Autism recently and Autism Speaks has really been a great source of information. They even have a 100 day kit they provide to families {free of charge} to help them get through the first 100 days after their child is diagnosed. See my post about their free resources here.

GIVEAWAY

My giveaway for this event is the DVD ‘A Mile In His Shoes’. This movie is about a child who has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism.

Here is more about the movie:

“Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur “Murph” Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team. As Murph sets out to recruit new talent, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher’s arm. However, Mickey’s parents are reluctant in allowing him to join the team because he has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. Murph convinces Mickey’s parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn’t realize just how much his new recruit will help the team’s game and, more importantly, their spirit. Based on a true story, A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.”

Leave a comment telling me why you’d like to win this movie.

Giveaway ends April 4, 2012 at 11:59pm Central time. US Only.

(Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post but did receive a copy of the movie.)

    I have worked in the field of “special needs” since I was 16 and love it! I am currently in Master’s program for mental health counseling. I would love to win this movie to watch myself, but to hopefully show my kids (now or in the future) to show them the uniqueness of someone with “special needs” (or as we call it in our home – a special gift from God)! =0)

  8. Lisa Burke Cook says:

    I would love to win this movie so we can sit down and watch it as a family and be able to sit down and speak to our children about autism and the different levels of it. And show them that they are just as special as we are.

  11. Sarah Blake says:

    I’d like to win this movie because I think with how common autism is, it’s important to celebrate the differences of those with autism. A movie that does that will help others accept and understand what autism is.

  12. Robin G says:

    I would love this movie because I am in the field of Special Education. I work specifically with blind and low vision children, but have a variety of students with multiple disabilities. I am always interested in watching documentaries about different disabilities.

  13. Mike says:

    As a general education teacher and camp counselor (over the summer), I come in contact with many children — with each child having his or her own differences. This movie will help me better understand children diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. Plus, I enjoy watching movies about children overcoming some type of hardship whether it is related to a diagnosed disability, their socioeconomic status, or other situation.

    I’d like to win this because it sounds inspirational – thanks.

  16. I am an educator and we have a high ratio of children with autism in our grade. Not only would I love to see this movie, but I think it would be an amazing resource for our staff and parents.

  17. The school where I teach has a high ratio of students with varying degrees of autism. Not only do I want to watch this movie, but I think it would be an amazing resource for our staff and parents.

    This sounds like a wonderful movie and if my son had been born a few years later he would have been diagnosed with Asperger’s but the diagnosis was not around when he was young.
