From Kate:

I love days like this! Giveaways are so fun and they fill my cup every single time. I would like to again thank, Henderson Construction Fabrics Inc., Dutch Bros. Coffee, and The Hope and Light Foundation for their incredibly generous donations. I would also like to thank everyone who has helped donate in this past year. Getty Owl Foundation would not exist without the confidence of donors, who are willing to give us a chance to make a difference. Thank you so very much.

Thank you to all of the families who entered the giveaway. I wish we could offer the prizes to all who enter, believe me are getting there, but for now for those who were not randomly selected, PLEASE come back next year, your chances are always good!

Alright here we go!

UPDATE: 18+ Reasons to Celebrate the Holidays

From Kate:

Getty Owl Foundation’s annual giveaway has always been a time for us, as a foundation to celebrate. We are so fortunate to be able to support the SMA community in ways that we know make a difference. It is so humbling when we get to work with local and national businesses, foundations, and families. Raising funds is hard work and making connections is also a time consuming feat. We love it, we are passionate about it, and it has truly been a rewarding experience.

I am here to announce that our giveaway has been “upped”. Thanks to The Hope and Light Foundation and their continued commitment to the SMA community, we now have the ability to give more.

18+ Reasons to Celebrate the Holidays Details:

We will NOW be giving away (18) 7th generation iPads. In addition to the iPad, the giveaway will include a iPad case. We are also adding a $25 apple gift card.

We will also be giving away (8) AbleNet Powerlink 4. We will also be adding a $50 visa gift card to put towards a switch to access the Powerlink 4.


Happy Holidays!

From Kate,

Well the holidays are seriously upon us and I wanted to get our Getty Owl Foundation’s Giveaway, underway before it got crazy busy. Before I roll it out I wanted to take a second and mention how proud I am of our foundation’s, almost 10 year commitment to our SMA community. To date, we have gifted over 60 iPads to our community. I am normally not very comfortable touting such a statistic, but man, I am so proud of this!

Technology is the key to bridging the gap between communication, education and socialization. Getty has been positively reaping the benefits of technology since she was just months old. We are just so thankful to have a platform to support our community.

This year is no different AND we will be adding a terrific new opportunity for this year’s giveaway.

While iPads are great opportunities for access, so are many items that help SMA kids gather another level of independence. The company, AbleNet has a great item called a Powerlink 4. This item works with regular devices like blenders, lights, tv, etc. that normally be turned on and off. With the help of the Powerlink 4 and an access switch can give our SMA kiddos some really incredible independence. So we want to give a few away as well. Check out this LINK to learn more.

Before we get to the details, it is very important to establish how incredibly important it is to thank all of our donors who have helped make this giveaway possible. In particular, I would like to thank Henderson Construction Fabrics Inc. and Dutch Bros. Coffee Sacramento for their generosity. You make a difference for so many in our SMA community, thank you so very much!
