For our thirteenth day we have some amazing prizes from 

 SMARTKNIT KIDS and Turn On Your Senses!
One winner will receive  3 pairs of seamless sensitivity socks from Smartknit Kids and one winner will receive a PlaySkool Drop 'n Pop Shape Sorter !

Please take a moment and visit our AMAZING sponsors!

Our first giveaway is from:

SmartKnitKIDS® patented seamless socks are perfect for children experiencing sensory processing differences, hypersensitivity or who simply can’t stand annoying seams! These super soft socks for sensitive little feet will not wrinkle or bunch and are proven to reduce irritation.

No Seams to Bug Ya!
Completely free of seams, the patented kids' socks are designed to provide comfort and relief to children who struggle with “bumps & lumps” in their socks.

Reduces annoying wrinkling and bunching in the shoe

Corespun yarns using Lycra and form-fitting design result in children's socks that “hug” the foot reducing wrinkling and bunching. The form fitting design also helps to keep socks on the wiggliest of toes.

“No heel” design allows children to put on socks with confidence and keeps little feet from outgrowing their socks so quickly.

Comfortable Non-Binding Top

Our non-binding Halo Top™ fits comfortably without slipping down the leg.Regular socks often have elastic bands at the tops of the sock that can often pinch, bind or be a source of irritation.

Keeps Feet Dry & Healthy

SmartKnitKIDS™ Socks are made with high-tech fibers that wick moisture away helping control odor or "stinky feet".We will be hosting a review in about a week for Kid Companions!  Amazing product!

Our Second Giveaway is from:

A few months ago Dawn was a guest on another SPD site that I belong to and her dedication to helping children just blew me away!  She had a giveaway for a puzzle and I won it!  She wrote to ask me what Lucas liked and told me to leave it to her and she'll send something she knew Lucas would love!  We'll she did!  She sent him this amazing talking alphabet puzzle and he adores it!  She never met him, didn't know his likes or dislikes, but from asking what he liked she was able to figure out what would work for Lucas!  I was amazed at the time she took for him!  As busy as she is, she took time out to make another child happy!  She is just so amazing with people. 

When I found out I was doing this event, I contacted her to ask if she wanted to participate and before I could even look back at my mail, she sent a reply saying "YES!", "TELL ME WHAT YOU NEED!"

She has so many amazing toys!  What clicked with me is that its not just another store!  She uses regular toys and helps parents make them useful for those children who have special needs! 

Dawn will be giving away two amazing toys throughout our event and even offered to donate portions of any procedes to help our efforts with the SPD Foundation!
