An Autism Awareness Giveaway for Autism Awareness Month
We teamed up with the Love Andrew Autism Foundation in May for a special giveaway. A Super-Sized Sensory Kit filled with an assortment of products from Star Essence Collection. A value of $350! We asked for nominations of teachers or parents of special needs children.
The Love Andrew Autism Foundation got in on the fun and posted about the giveaway on their Facebook Page too.
There were many nominations of hard working and inspiring teachers and of dedicated moms and dads. We at Wellnessed Boutique were grateful and humbled by the response. We would have loved to give this kit to each deserving person nominated, but only one could win.
And the winner was (drum roll please!) Special Education Teacher, Molly Shear of Glenwood Middle School!
Andrew (inspiration for the Love Andrew Autism Foundation) and his best friend, Deonte delivered the Super-Size Sensory Kit to Mrs. Shear's classroom.
It was exciting for both of them as she was their teacher when they were in Middle School! As we walked through the halls of their old school, I could feel their pride and sense of accomplishment. They both just completed their Freshman year in High School. It was fun to watch as they kept stopping in at different classrooms to say hello to former teachers.
It is because of incredible teachers like Mrs. Shear and the countless others who were nominated that Andrew and Deonte both have such an amazing attitude of hard work and positivity when it comes to school.
Here is the video of Andrew and Deonte delivering the Autism Awareness Giveaway Prize. Enjoy!
