Scentsy Fundraiser and Give-Away

by debi9kids on April 7, 2013

SCENTSYA few months ago, one of my blog readers, Lisa, reached out to me because she had started selling Scentsy products and saw something that made her think of me and Will and she wanted to send it to me.
It was possibly one of the nicest things any of my blog readers has ever done and when my Autism Speaks Scentsy warmer arrived, not only were the delicious scents filling my home but my heart was warmed.
I think one of my favorite things about this Autism Speaks warmer is that when the bulb is lit, little hearts light up all around the walls and table and it just makes me think of Will and how easily he manages to light up a room and make everyone love him <3Wills world scentsy burnerIf you aren’t familiar with Scentsy products, like I wasn’t, it’s time to get familiar 🙂
I have always loved to have my home filled with yummy smells, but am always worried about burning candles in my home, mostly because Will is way too curious about everything and has ZERO fear of anything.
Scentsy is a much safer way to melt wax, without the flame, although it’s still super important that I keep the hot stuff out of Will’s reach.

Earlier this week, Lisa reached out to me again, this time with an offer for my readers as well as a way to raise money for Autism Awareness.
How awesome is she?!
She set up an Online Party for any of my readers, family, or friends to make purchases and she will keep the party open for the month of April and will be donating 25% of the sales to Autism Speaks.

And at the end of the month, one lucky reader will win an identical Scentsy Warmer like the Autism Speaks one pictured above.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me how autism has touched or changed your life.

And to place an order, please go to Lisa’s Autism Awareness Party.

Thank you for your support and Good Luck!

Having my oldest daughter young, I didn't realize there was anything odd about the fact that she slept thru the night from birth, read fluently by 2 years old, never talked back to me and could play alone in her playpen for hours at 6 years old. At 8, she was diagnosed Aspergers. Put into a social therapy group. Went to counseling. For 2 years we did it all. I finally came to realize that she is exactly who God created her to be and I'm grateful to God for entrusting me with her care 🙂 she is 20 now. In college. Volunteers at church. Works. She never gives up. She inspires me in so many ways.

I have a cousin who has autism. She is around the age of my sweet children, so we have learned how to approach her and interact with her, as a family. It was definitely a learning experience. Now, she is doing great!

Having an autistic nephew is a blessing to me. Will means the world to me, will is a very brilliant kid. He is always a sweet, and happy child. I had to do a project for my class and I did the project on will , my teacher was impressed with my project. I got an 100 on it. My experience with will is incredible, he has the most sweetest manners. I am so honored to be his aunt. Will I support autism , n I love you buddy. Love always Tina

I never knew anyone personally with autism before as a child….until I babysat a child with autism. He was happy, did circles, was particular about his bananas, sweet, rocked himself to sleep, and I was mystified…..but loved him!

As an adult reading up on what exactly autism is…..I found the same mystery! It is many things. It is sometimes complicated, but most of all- it is my son Michael. I love him to the moon and back, but most of all I want to know more about his world. To jump into it with him.

Autism isn't scary- it is ………God revealed in a different way. I love God's creativity!

Truly, your blog was my first real introduction to the complexities and realities of autism. I had read some stories and heard some thoughts on the statistics. Your life and experiences with Will equipped me a bit to react with empathy and prayers for my friend when her little boy was diagnosed. Thank you for being a positive and real voice in the issue!

When I was in college I took a job as a program aide in a residential home for mentally retarded adults. How on earth Matthew wound up there … no that's not true … I know … his father had money and his stepmother found Matthew too much of a challenge so 10 year old Matthew came to live in a houseful of mentally retarded adults. He touched my heart in so many ways. I wanted to rescue him but I was young and doing well to rescue myself. I still wonder what happened to Matthew and it makes me sad.

The first time I really encountered autism was when I was a newspaper intern in Florida and I wrote a story about a camp for children with autism. I knew very little about autism when I visited the camp at lunch.

I was nervous and a little overwhelmed, but what struck me was the love that radiated from the caretakers and family members present at the camp — the celebration in the ways the children were interacting with each other and their family members.

I am a special education teacher. In my many roles as an educator, I have been blessed to work with students at both ends of the spectrum and enjoyed all of them. They truly light up a room.

I honestly never knew anything about autism until after the twins were born and I started finding out that a few of my friends' kids have it (you included). I've only met one of those kids – Will. He is such an amazing boy. So happy and full of life. He's a joy to watch and to be around. Speaking of… I can't wait to see him (and all of you guys) again!!

One of my best friends' son was recently diagnosed with autism, so that's the only real exposure I have had, but we have begun to raise awareness through knowledge with other people we know. 🙂
