Different Is Awesome! Holiday Package

November 12, 2015 — 4 Comments

**Offer extended TODAY ONLY (November 28th) in honor of Small Business Saturday!**

The holidays are approaching quickly, which means one thing: YOU GOTTA START BUYING GIFTS NOW!

That, or you’ve been reading posts that make you feel bad about the commercialization of the holidays and have vowed to celebrate the true meaning of the holidays.

But still…presents.

Seriously, though, one popular guideline for gift-requesting-and-giving that I really like is this poem:

Something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read.

Simple, yet robust.

And to help you with the “something to read” portion, I would like to offer you this LIMITED TIME OFFER! I’m told when you capitalize things and use exclamation points it makes it look super important.

From now until November 19th – ONE WEEK ONLY! – you can get an AUTOGRAPHED, PERSONALIZED (“For Jimmy! You’re awesome!”) copy of Different Is Awesome! AND a STICKER and BOOKMARK (which are not currently available anywhere else) for only $25! Shipping included (US only)!

Book, Sticker and Bookmark!

So, on a serious note, I’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response to the book over the last several months and really hope this is a special way to keep the message spreading. If you’re not into the holiday package thing, you can totally still get the book through all the regular channels here.

Thanks for being so awesome!

  1. Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. My grandson is an hemophiliac. His “differences” cannot be seen unless he has a severe bleed and has to use crutches. He also bruises easily but these are usually covered by his clothing and are not seen. He is being teased a school and told he “doesn’t have anything wrong with him” and he is “faking it”. He is 10 and now in elementary school and this is the age when bullying truly begins. Grammar school was no probable at all. I will probably order this book even if just to take to the grammar school. His teachers at school are what you might say are “scared of him” themselves because his parents have a meeting each year with all school nurses, teachers, coaches, etc. to show them pictures, things to look for, when to get him to the nurse, call his parents, etc. So, I’d like to know if this book would address “unseen” differences that are life threatening. There are many children with these “unseen” problems that are at great risk. Thanks so much.

    • Carole, thank you so much for sharing this. My good friend Meagan deals with these same issues regarding unseen difficulties. It’s tough, for sure! I wouldn’t say the book addresses that issue directly, but it does address the fact that we ALL have differences and that we should value each other and embrace them. I think it would be a fantastic tool for the grammar school teachers. Blessings to you and your grandson.
