Nationwide Give Away: $50 Gift Package from Tom’s Shoes

by Laura on July 10, 2011

Have you met Tom? I first heard about Tom’s Shoes years ago through a friend at church.  Here is a brief synopsis of what I learned:

In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. Blake returned to Argentina with a group of family, friends and staff later that year with 10,000 pairs of shoes made possible by TOMS customers. (source)

As an American woman I tend to think of shoes as a right- to have less than 10 pairs of shoes in my closet would be absurd.  Yet many children around the world do not even have one pair of shoes.  So if buying a pair of shoes could help someone in need, I think I could make that sacrifice.

Now back in the day I have to admit Tom’s shoes weren’t very cool looking.  They have changed- ALOT.  There are some really cute shoes available!

I have a $50 gift pack from Tom’s Shoes to give to one lucky reader.  I don’t know what’s inside of it so it will just have to be a surprise to you and me both!

This Give Away is sponsored by Autism United- an organization “Fighting Autism Together To Raise Awareness.”

There are lots of ways to enter this Give Away.  For each one leave a seperate comment on THIS post.  Leaving info on Twitter or Facebook won’t count!

You must do one of these three to enter this Give Away (you can do all three for three entries):

1)  Visit Autism United for one entry.  Tell me what you learned about Autism and how you can be more aware of Autism in your community.

2) Follow Autism United on Twitter.  Leave a comment here telling me you do.

3) Follow Autism United on facebook  (and you can tell them I sent you).  Leave a comment here telling me you do.

These also can be done for additional entries:

1)  Follow A Frugal Chick on Twitter.  Leave a comment here telling me you do.

2) “Like” A Frugal Chick on Facebook.  Leave a comment here telling me you do.

3) Leave a comment on this post telling me which of Tom’s Shoes you like the best.

4) Do a status update on facebook that says “I want to win the Tom’s Shoes Give Away from @autismunited and @AFrugalChick http://bit.ly/pkhTqH ” and then leave a comment here letting me know.  You can do this once a day.

5) Tweet “Win a $50 Gift Package for Tom’s Shoes @Afrugalchick @ autismunited http://bit.ly/pkhTqH” and then leave a comment here letting me know.  You can do this once a day.

This gives you LOTS of chances to win (you must be 18 years and older in the U.S.).  I will pick a winner on July 30th at midnight and e-mail them.  If I don’t hear back within 24 hours I will select another winner!

I learned the following….

Studies have shown several different signs and symptoms with autistic children that tend to be the first signs of autism. These signs and symptoms include some of the following:

Problems speaking with others
Difficulty making eye contact during conversation
Lining up of items before focusing on other tasks
Repetitive use of sentences to calm themselves down
Extensive body movement to express moods
In some instances, inability to talk

Every person is different and may not show all signs or symptoms. This happens because autistic people have very different features and symptoms. Health care providers think of Autism as a “spectrum” disorder. Autism is becoming an easier diagnosis as more studies are done allowing family members to understand more about autism each year.

I visited the autism website and learned that no one has any idea how kids get autism and there is no cure as of yet. Very sad, and 6 out of every 1000 kids may be autistic. That is higher than I thought.

I learned that one sign of autism is when children walk on their toes. I didn’t know that. In my community, I can be sure to help mothers out who have autistic children. I know a few.

As I’m not familiar with Asperger’s Syndrome (my best friend’s brother has autism so I grew up learning about it), I learned that the presence of normal basic language skills is seen as a criteria for the diagnosing Asperger’s Syndrome from other forms of autism.

I learned that although people will develop and show different symptoms, autism is becoming easier to diagnose as more studies are being done.
