And the Winner is...

A few months ago I entered a blog contest through twitter moms. It was a contest run by CVS Caremark All Kids Can for Disability Awareness month. To enter, you were asked to write a post on your blog about how you talk to your kids about disability and the importance of inclusion. Right in my wheel house, eh? I had so much to say on the topic, that I wrote two posts:

Disability Awareness (Are We There Yet?): Part 1
Disability Awareness (Are We There Yet?): Part 2

I am pleased (as punch) to say that I received an email this afternoon from CVS, letting me know that I have been selected as 1 of 5 winners! The prize is that I get to choose a nonprofit organization serving children with disabilities to receive a $1,000 grant from CVS Caremark All Kids Can. I chose Autism Speaks, since we are currently raising funds for the Walk For Autism in Toronto on June 7th. I am hoping that CVS can donate to them through Team Maxwell, but either way, I am thrilled that my posts were selected and that I have been able to direct more money to an organization that is doing amazing work for children with Autism.

This was a good day. A really good day.
