When I published “I Think I Might Be Autistic” as an e-book earlier this summer, I thought about giving part of the proceeds to a charity that supports autistic people. Then I thought some more and realized that, “Hang on, I know lots of autistic people!” Why not use the proceeds to give back to the community directly?
Sooooo . . . thanks to everyone who bought the e-book (or the print version!), I’m excited to announce the first giveaway for a 38″ x 50″ weighted blanket from Mosaic Weighted Blankets. The blanket pictured about is mine, which I absolutely love and use every day. The winner will be able to choose from the fabrics and colors that Mosaic currently has available.

My little guy carries a LOT of anxiety and I’m sure his nervous system could benefit greatly from a weighted blanket.
I’ve never heard of weighted blankets before. I can imagine that they can be very comforting… in Winter (we’re currently in a heatwave in SoCal) 🙂
I wish I could enter, it’s a wonderful idea! I am thinking of making my own weighted blanket, especially for summer, because I simply can’t sleep without some sort of weight on top of me. So even in the middle of summer I often sleep underneath a feather duvet. Which is a bit warm, lol.
I’m sorry this can’t be open to everyone. Weighted blankets are so heavy to ship. For the next giveaway I’ll do some light so it can be shipped internationally.
I know, it’s the main reason I want to make one myself, since shipping is so prohibitive.
What a great giveaway! Thanks!
Awesome! My 5yr old needs one really bad!
As a kid, I used to wedge myself between my mattress and the box spring, or under the couch cushions, to feel comforted. I think that a weighted blanket might be a *smidge* easier.
Hint: My birthday is Sept 13th. 😀
That’s so awesome of you! Thanks for the offer
This would be awesome! I always have to double up my heaviest blanket for my son. Unfortunately that gets hot here in Texas.
What a great company! Really cool fabrics too!
And now that I know about your book, I’m getting it!
Well, this sounds awesome.
I’d love to win this! I had a borrowed weighted blanket for a while, and the weight was awesome. Sadly it was made of a horrible fabric so I didn’t really use it. But this one looks like a nice fabric.
What a great idea! Thanks for doing this.
Hi, unfortunately I can’t enter because I’m in the UK, so this comment is about a completely different thing. I seem to have rambled about my slightly scary relationship drama quite a bit in the comments of your blog, so I just wanted to let you know I finally broke up with him. It’s Facebook Official. Relieved.
I never heard of “Facebook Official” but I can picture what it means. Hugs!
That’s excellent news! I’m so happy for you that it’s official and done with.
🙂 Now I’m thinking I should have commented on an old post because I’ve massively derailed this thread. Sorry!!
And why is derailment a bad thing? Conversations evolve naturally. We don’t often get a chance to let a conversation derail in real life because we’re too tense about the social side of things. So I think it’s nice that we can do it online. 😉
No worries. Your news made me happy. But I am gonna start a “sorry” jar so you can put a quarter in every time you say it. 😉
*gives you all my money in advance*
I’ve never had a weighted blanket of my own, but I need one… My anxiety is just through the roof recently. I am an aspie and I graduated this past May, so now I am pressured to get a job and go to college. A weighted blanket would be the best thing in the world.
Oh man! This is awesome! Enter me please. 🙂
I hope you’re not using ALL the proceeds for giveaways though. That book was excellent, you deserve quite a bit of monetary reward for it I think.
It’s not all the proceeds but a good sized chunk. I like that I can give something back the community. 🙂
So how many times can we enter? lol Great idea, even if I don’t win but I would LOVE the blanket!!
Maximum of 3 entries person – 1 here, 1 on Tumblr and 1 on Facebook 🙂
I’d love to get this for my little guy!
Awesome!! I’ve been wanting one of these for a while
Oh gosh, this would be wonderful! I’ve wanted one of these since I first heard of them.
I’ve wanted one of these since I was little and realized they were expensive.
What a great idea!
I Sleep Under A Very Heavy Mink Blanket Because Of My Anxiety. A Weighed Blanket Would Be A Lot More Comfortable And A Lot Less Bulky
Both my boys need this! It’s such a great sensory tool!!
Reblogged this on life in the slow lane and commented:
Add your support to this great idea and also you can learn from this book.
I’ve reblogged this as it is such a great idea.
Thank you for sharing it!
Great giveaway! I’ve been working on saving up for a weighted blanket for a while now…would be amazing to win one!
I’d love to win this , my autistic 8 year old can’t settle to sleep without me and needs to sleep in my bed. I’m trying to move him to his own bed.
I have commented and shared , and liked the fb page 😃
I would love to win this blanket! Love your book and blog!
I want one of these, but cannot afford it. I bought your book & have been reading it.
I too was diagnosed later in life at the age of 44 with Asperger’s. I’m married to a N.T. as well. I have read many books on my condition, I’d like to read your’s some day soon.
I also have a weighted blanket that calms me at night but my wife doesn’t like it. I tend to throw it off on her when I get warm.
I was interested to hear that Aspie’s have trouble with sleep. Even though I work in a physical job, I use melatonin as well as 5 HTP to help me sleep.
With most of the blanket ending up on the floor, I think this will be useful
I was recently diagnosed and reading your blog has helped me a lot.
I’d love this blanket for myself and my dd. We both have anxiety so I think we’d get some relief.
I would love one for my daughter that has SPD!
I would LOVE to win this weighted blanket. I personally have SPD (wasn’t diagnosed until my son was diagnosed with Asperger’s a few years ago) and Early Onset Parkinson’s. All of these years, I just thought (and was told) that I was just over-sensitive and “being a baby” when in actuality it was SPD issues. Since I haven’t been able to afford to buy one, I often use my 70+ pound dog as a “weighted blanket” when needed, but she gets restless and doesn’t like staying in place for as long as I need her. 😉 It definitely helps, but for me and my dog’s sake, I should get a real weighted blanket…lol Fortunately, my son doesn’t seem to have this issue (needing a weighted blanket), but if/when I do get one in the future, I will definitely have him try it to see if there are times that it does help him, too. Thanks for offering this giveaway!
My son 3.8, suddenly loves to be UNDER our temprapedic pillows which are very heavy. He loves to stack them over his legs and body. I have a feeling he would LOVE a weighted blanket. I recently looked them up on Amazon and was shocked how expensive they are! It is awesome of you to give one away so generously.
We would love to have a weighted blanket for our recently diagnosed Aspie. This would help out tremendously.
That is very cool of you to share your proceeds. These blankets are not cheap! Thanks for a great giveaway. My son would Love it!
I would love to have a weighted blanket! They sound amazing. I love the feeling of being snug and/or having things on top of me, and a weighted blanket might help me with my sleep issues.
My 7 year old daughter loves her weighted blanket at school, would be great to have one at home as well.
