Does that mean I’m a genuine blogger now?
Except for that little fact that I seem to forget I even have a blog somedays….. Scary stuff, let me tell you. 🙂
Anyway, I’m really excited about this so, I won’t mince my words.
As you all know, I volunteer in my free time, for the Hydrocephalus Association. Recently, (and if you’ve been keeping up with the Bear drama, bless you) I’ve finally gotten started assembling these teddy bears with shunts, called Boozle Bears. I absolutely love them, they’re fantastic for explaining to little kids what hydrocephalus is, and how it’s treated.
Only thing, they’re a touch expensive. (Granted, once you try to make one of them, you QUICKLY understand why. Not to mention, they have a real shunt inside of them!)
So, I got the brilliant idea to give my Boozle Bear away! I mean, I know perfectly well how my shunt works, why not give it to a family who needs it?
Expanding on the idea- we’re taking him to Disney with us, and taking pictures of him with all the characters. Then, we’ll make up a photo album/autograph book for him, and we’ll give that away with him as well. 🙂
I’m beyond excited for it. I mean, I was already excited about taking the trip to Walt Disney World – who wouldn’t be? But now, I know the little bear is going to be a fabulous conversation starter, and I’m going to have multiple chances to discuss the condition with people, and hopefully spread a little awareness while I’m at it.
Then, we come home, and I get to share the memories and the pixie dust with someone who may really need it. How cool is that?
So, if you would, do me a favor? If you know anyone, or have anyone following you on social media who has hydrocephalus, or has a child with it, could you please share this giveaway? I have it linked on Project Pixie Dust’s Facebook page , here. It doesn’t cost anything to enter, so if you know someone who needs something like this, please – let them know!
In the comments, let me know what you think of this bear, would you? Personally, I think he’s great, but I’m a touch biased… 🙂
