Land of Nod Giveaway!
Listen up Special Needs Families! I was so grateful to the Land of Nod for helping us 'design with special needs in mind' that we are teaming up to do a $500 giveaway for a Land of Nod gift card just for all you special needs families out there. Whoop whoop!
One thing that kinda gets to me as an design/art loving + special needs mom is the often cold, sterile and supa' ugly world of adaptive equipment and accessories for people with special needs. Yes function has to be the foremost thought, but I don't think that means that good design needs to be thrown out the window. It just shouldn't be that way. And honestly a lot of the times we don't need different stuff than other families, we just need to think of it in different ways. Enter the Land of Nod, they have so many creative solutions to children's design that I think there are many ways special needs families can take advantage of this same great design and customize it to their needs. If you win this giveaway for $500 Land of Nod gift card you will also have access to their design services and will be able to consult with a designer to help address solutions for your specific needs. I hope you're doing back flips, because I sure am. Now here's how it works:
1. You must be a special needs family.
2. You can enter by leaving a comment on either the blog below and on the giveaway post on instagram (follow me on ig at thislittlemiggy). You can leave a comment in both places for a total of two entries.
3. Check out the Land of Nod and in your comment please tell me what specific design dilemma you face for your child or what your favorite Land of Nod item is.
4. Also, if you know a fellow special needs family that should enter please tag them, email them or send a carrier pigeon so they know to enter!
The contest will be open until Thursday 10:00 pm EST and the winner will be announced Friday morning. Good luck everyone!
