Updates and Announcements (Great Glasses Play Day, Pictures, and Contests)

Some quick announcements and updates to start off your week!

Great Glasses Play Day (August 5, 2012) – thanks for the great response to the Great Glasses Play Day!  We’ve already heard from people in 8 locations in 3 different countries (!!!) who are interested in helping with a local event, and as I mentioned, we’ll have a bunch of ways for people to participate even if they aren’t close enough to come to one of the events.  If you haven’t already, take a minute to like our page on facebook so you can stay up to date on all everything that’s happening with it.


Photo Gallery – I’ve added more photos to the photo gallery, but even more exciting, I’ve updated the page and added a slide show (which takes a moment to load) and made the page a bit more compact if you want to scroll through it.  If anyone’s keeping count, we have 154 photos in the gallery!  If you’ve sent in a photo of your child and I somehow missed it, I promise, it’s not you, it’s me.  Please send me an email (ann@shinypebble.com) and I’ll get it added.


Children’s Eye Foundation Photo Contest – is still going on.  I’ve heard from 5 people who have entered their cuties in to the contest.  Take a look at our page to see the photos and links to vote for them (and any other pictures you like).  Please do let me know if you’ve entered your child in the contest – there’s still time! – and I’ll add their picture.


Wonderbaby.org – I received a comment a while back from someone at Wonderbaby.org and finally had a chance to check it out.  What an amazing resource for parents who are dealing with children with vision impairments!  The site was started by the mother whose son has LCA, and is funded by the Perkins School for the Blind.  It has a fantastic list of resources, a Q&A forum, a news section, and a whole lot more.  Wonderbaby also currently running an iPad giveaway, which comes with special needs apps and equipment.  If your child has a visual impairment, I highly recommend checking out Wonderbaby and the giveaway!


I’ve also updated the Parent’s Resources page and the Blogs list.  I’ll be updating the list of books soon.  Hope everyone had a great weekend!
