Announcing the 3rd Annual International Sensation Celebration:

"One Step at A Time"
A Sensory Awareness Event!

During National Sensory Awareness Month In cities worldwide
October 2011

ORGANIZERS: Go to our 2011 Organizer page to find tips and tools.

The Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation invites you to organize, support, or attend a SENSATION CELEBRATION to raise awareness of sensory challenges and funds in support of SPD research, education and advocacy. Contact Parent Coordinator Carrie Fannin for details or to volunteer.

Our SENSATION CELEBRATION this year truly embodies the dedication and triumph families who are raising children with Sensory Processing Disorder find every day. These families like the dedicated scientists and doctors who continue researching SPD all began this journey "One Step At A Time". Now you can join these remarkable families and researchers in communities all over the world by participating in our annual international event!

This year we've teamed up with First Giving an online resource for non-profits like ours that gives us a really easy way to collect donations for a fundraiser. You can find instructions to use First Giving and more details on our 2011 Organizer page.

Organizers can plan a walk-a-thon, fun-run, community walk or (and this is the really great part) set up your own personal fundraising page, gather pledges and go take a walk with your family and friends! All you need are your walking shoes and a desire to see research for Sensory Processing Disorder continue.

Organizers are encouraged to schedule their SENSATION CELEBRATIONS during National Sensory Awareness month in October but are free to hold their events any time during 2011 if a different month is more suitable in their area.
