In honor of Down Syndrome Awareness month, I’m teaming up with my fellow DS mamas over at Crazy Beautiful Love and The Bates Motel for the Hoppin’ for 21 blog hop!
Check out the scoop below on the hop from Erin at Crazy Beautiful Love. She’s got some fun things planned for this Friday! (If you’d like to grab the linky button, stop by Crazy Beautiful Love, for some reason the button won’t cooperate with me!)
Hoppin’ for 21 “rules”:
1. You need to be a blog owner. The blog does not have to be a special needs blog. You only need a desire to promote awareness for Down syndrome. (Scroll down to see how those that do not blog can participate too!)
2. Link your blog up below. You can begin linking up immediately. You must be linked below to be eligible for the giveaways! (see below)
3. On the day of the hop (10/21), visit as many blog hop participants as you possibly can!
4. Leave a comment letting that site know you found them from the Hop and you appreciate them supporting awareness of Down syndrome.
5. (Optional) If you see a site you like, become a follower! Make sure you let them know you are a new follower and they just might follow you back.
6. (Optional) Mention somewhere in a post on the 21st that you are supporting Down Syndrome Awareness month by participating in the hop. I will provide a thumbnail for those that want to share it with others!
7. (Optional) Drop by each site of those hosting the hop and say HI! Let them know you appreciate them hosting!
8. (Optional) Help us promote the hop! Mention it in posts, on facebook, twitter and provide a link back to the hop link page. The more people that participate, the more people become aware of the beautiful designer gene world of Down Syndrome.
Every participant (excluding the hosts) will be entered in a random selection giveaway. Right now we have two prizes and I hoping for one more donation. You only need to participate and follow the “rules” to be eligible.
So, you don’t blog huh? That’s okay! You can help spread awareness too!
An event has been set up on Facebook for those wanting to participate. Just go here to see how…. Hoppin’ for 21 on Facebook
. Those who take part in the Facebook event will be entered into their very own giveaway for a $10 Target Giftcard. The basic idea is that you join the facebook event and follow the event “rules”. The rules involve you posting a status on 10/21 stating that you are participating in the Hoppin’ for 21 event to support Down Syndrome awareness and provide a link back to the Hoppin’ for 21 on Facebook
event page. That’s it. Simple. Plus, don’t forget you do not have to be a blog owner to read blog posts and leave comments!
