Week #4 Giveaway (now closed)
Our fourth and final giveaway for MS Awareness Month is a weighted blanket from Baloo Living! Getting a good night's sleep or even just comfortably resting can be extremely difficult with MS symptoms like painsomnia, spasticity, leg cramps, and mental health symptoms like anxiety and stress. The deep pressure of Baloo’s breathable weighted blankets can help soothe the nervous system, alleviate stress and anxiety, and increase serotonin production, which can lead to a calmer mind and deeper sleep. Read more about our advocate Devin’s experience with a weighted blanket for MS symptoms. The winner will also receive an audiobook copy of our advocate Mitch Sturgeon’s memoir Enjoying the Ride.

Our third giveaway for MS Awareness Month is a one-month subscription to Headspace! This meditation app offers guided meditations that allow people to experience the benefits of meditation anytime, anywhere. Living with multiple sclerosis not only impacts one's cognitive functioning, but it can also greatly affect one’s mental health and lead to an increase in feelings of depression, anxiety, and stress. We’re focusing on MS and cognitive issues this week, and what with all that’s going on in the world right now, we think it’s all the more important to talk about mental health. Whether you’re experienced in meditation or are a complete newbie, Headspace offers a variety of guided meditations curated for your needs. Plus, the winner will also receive a copy of our advocate Mitch Sturgeon’s memoir Enjoying the Ride. Keep scrolling to enter this giveaway!

Week #2 Giveaway (now closed)
Our second giveaway for MS Awareness Month is $120 gift card to Dansko shoes! We know that MS can cause a host of difficulties when it comes to balance, coordination, and mobility. These challenges can make finding the right footwear nearly impossible. Many people in the MS community have spoken about having to toss some of their favorite shoes in favor of something more practical. Others have still not been able to find the right pair. That’s where this giveaway comes in! Dansko makes shoes that are simply good for your feet - all day, every day - in a range of styles that are just right for you. We know that everyone has different tastes, so a gift card ensures that you can pick the perfect pair for you. Plus, the winner also gets a copy of our advocate Mitch Sturgeon’s memoir Enjoying the Ride for some extra inspiration.
