April is Autism Awareness Month! Last day to enter!
Autism Awareness month is fast approaching. Hopefully this year we can make what we started last year bigger and better. Through word of mouth we can make a difference!!
To kick things off for Autism Awareness Month please visit our Autism Awareness Contest for a chance to win a spectacular “Blue” prize package!! We are giving away a Blue Dragster, retired Blue Hockey Skates, Blue WZ Jeans, a Magical Retriver bed and for the colour of love - a Red Lava!! Enter between Sunday, March 20 and Sunday, March 27th 10PM for your chance to win one of five amazing prizes!!
Many of our Webkinz Insider members are touched by Autism. Our wish is that others, through knowledge will show compassion and understanding towards people on the spectrum. A person with autism feels love, happiness, sadness and pain just like everyone else. Just because some of them may not express their feelings in the typical way does not at all mean that they do not have feelings - THEY DO!! Please visit the Autism Awareness thread to learn about Autism.
To help us raise awareness about this ever growing condition please consider using an Autism Avatar and / or Signature during the month of April. The colour of Autism Awareness is blue. Let’s all dress our pets in Blue this April!! Are you planning on adopting a new pet soon? How about adopting a new pet and calling it an ASD related name? Join in on one of our Autism Awareness Parades.
If you would like to join this effort to raise awareness you can buy a blue webkinz at our partner store Ameriwade! Throughout the year you are welcome to stop by our Special Needs Children and Webkinz thread for discussion amongst members who are touched by all kinds of special needs. Visit our Wiki to learn about Autism. Also in our Wiki you will find a Blue Pet Parade to help you pick that perfect blue pet.
