Home » Autism Awareness in Action Kicks off with Facebook Contest!
The Autism Awareness in Action Campaign is about more than contests, prizes and sponsors – but they are still fun to win!
With each of the coming Social Media Events linked to the Autism Awareness in Action Campaign you will have the opportunity to win prizes and pledge to take action.
Action can mean many things – and throughout this month we’ll be highlighting different ways other folks are acting and creating a real difference, in the autism community, for families affected by autism, and for adults and teens trying to deal with their own diagnoses.
I want to highlight what you can win by entering the Facebook Contest, and tell you, again, that beyond the prizes, we’d love to have this campaign jumpstart the discussion about Autism Awareness “IN ACTION.”
(do us a favor too, would you? Make sure to visit these amazing sponsors, look at the great prizes they will be donating, and make sure to thank them with a tweet or shout out on Facebook or Google+)
And remember, entering the Facebook Contest is JUST the beginning! Over the next month you will also have the chance to enter other contests, join the discussion, and be a part of a new kind of awareness campaign!
1 Set – 10 CDs and DVDs by the award-winning Children’s Band Recess Monkey (a full set of their available titles) worth over $165!
This band of 3 schoolteachers from Seattle, WA have taken kids’ music by storm, warranting awards, honors, and mentions from magazines, newspapers, and blogs from all over! This prize is only available within the US.
1 – $50 Gift Certificate
This new site is filled with educational, therapeutic, and other products not only perfect for those with autism, but also for many of those with special needs. Available worldwide.
2 – CDs (1 - Play!; 1 - Great Day; Each with a copy of their comic book)
Milkshake does benefit concerts for organizations like Autism Speaks and Walk Now for Autism, and most recently their song “I Love You” off their Grammy-nominated CD Great Day, was featured in a video for Real Look Autism. Their prizes are available for anyone in the US to win.
The MP3 of their song, “I Love You” is available to download for free to everyone who enters the contest.
Last but not least, I will be donating some graphics as prizes too! I create custom graphics as part of my online business, and am donating a social media branded image of your choice … so a Twitter background or new profile picture, a Facebook Timeline cover or a Google+ Cover … any social media design I’ll do for you (I’ll be releasing some Autism Awareness in Action branded social media designs next week as part of the campaign as well!)
I’m offering five of these social media graphics for five lucky winners and there are just a couple limitations listed in the official Terms of Service (Kat’s Media & More -me!-will not provide illegal, pornographic, or other questionable graphics. If your requested design is not acceptable, you have the choice to choice a different design, otherwise your prize will be forfeited).
The Facebook contest had a late start because of some development issues, but will run until June 4, 2012. Please read the TOS for all applicable rules and regulations.
Remember, if you would – the Autism Awareness in Action campaign is about going beyond traditional awareness drives, and this contest is the first event of the monthlong campaign to work towards ACTION. I sure hope you’ll stay along for the ride!Enter the FB Contest!
