For those of you that remember the Easter picture contest, you are one step ahead. That contest alone drove a ton of awareness to our cause and to this site. We had over 1000 total votes and twice that many visitors looking at our kids in their Eater outfits. A fun contest indeed. Well, that one is no comparison to what is going to take place for Halloween. One of our tremendous fans has stepped up and donated a BRAND NEW iPad2 as a prize to be won for the highest vote getter of the 2011 Halloween picture contest!

Last month, Jessica and Justin Aman ran their annual “Tee it up for Tanner” WHS fund raising event and have generously offered up an iPad as the prize for this Halloween picture contest. As we all know, Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome is a rare thing and any efforts we can make to generate awareness about this condition can only help future families. And what better way than to engage people in a contest!

So, here is how it’s going to work:

  • Be certain that you have a child with wolf-hirschhorn syndrome (contest is only for children with WHS!)
  • Make sure you have a cool custom for your kiddo come Halloween time.
  • Start spreading the word that you can win a brand new iPad for your child and your family.
  • Take a few photos of your WHS child in their costume around Halloween.
  • Come to this site and create a post, including your favorite picture and a fun story (the picture is what’s most important here). If you need help, email me and I’ll help you publish your picture!
  • EMAIL ME YOUR PICTURE and CHILD’S NAME after you publish your post(this step is very important).
  • Make sure that your picture is posted by Friday, November 4th, 11:59pm Central Time.
  • Remind ALL of your friends and family members that you are entering a contest.
  • Give me a few days to get the page up for voting.
  • Once the page goes live, voting will be open for 7 days.
  • At the end of the 7th day, the highest vote getter wins an iPad and second place gets a $50 gift card!

Pretty easy, huh? Yes, it is. Start spreading the word and your child could be sporting a cool iPad just like Tanner!

Thanks go out to the Aman’s for their generosity and thoughtfulness in providing such a great opportunity for our kids. Even though there will only be one winner of the iPad, everyone wins with the awareness we will be generating about WHS.

    Very exciting stuff! We’re going to have to hunt for a good costume as Halloween isn’t the most popular of holidays here in Italy and people usually reserve all their costume-wearing energy for carnival! But then again, Italians do love everyghing “American” and I have been seeing more and more decorations and such every year. What a great contest and prize!! Love the Elmo pic…
