New Year’s FUN: Enter2Win a Wonder Movie Prize Pack!

Special New Year’s Giveaway! Enter2Win a WONDERful Prize!

2018 is here and we are so excited for the exciting things in store for you this upcoming year! To kick it off, we thought it would be fun to do a GIVEAWAY! One of my personal goals for the upcoming year is to find ways to spread kindness in our community, and that happens to be one of the beautiful takeaways from the movie “Wonder”. The movie, based on the best selling novel, follows the true story of a little boy born with a facial deformity as he acclimates into a community for the first time. It’s as much the tale of a group of children learning to embrace and love others as it is the story of self-acceptance in a world that can be harsh to grow up in.

Entering into our giveaway is simple, all you have to do is click on the blue “Enter2Win a Wonder Prize Pack” button below this text. That’s it! We’ll randomly draw and notify a winner next week by email. Help us spread the word by sharing this blog post with your friends and look below for details about the story below. Good luck!

About “Wonder”

“August “Auggie” Pullman is a fifth-grade boy living in North River Heights in upper Manhattan. He has a rare medical facial deformity, which he refers to as “mandibulofacial dysostosis.” Due to numerous (27) surgeries, Auggie had been homeschooled by his mother Isabel, but as Auggie is approaching middle school age, Isabel and Nate decide to enroll him in Beecher Prep, a private school, for the start of middle school. At first, Auggie is ostracized by nearly all the student body, but he is soon befriended by a boy named Jack Will.’


“During a school trip to a nature reserve, when Auggie and Jack are accosted and threatened by a group of seventh graders from another school, several of their classmates come to their defense. At the year’s end during the graduation ceremony, Tushman announces that Auggie has been selected for the Henry Ward Beecher Medal for standing out; Auggie receives a standing ovation, and the movie ends with everyone applauding Auggie, and Isabel commenting on him being a wonder.” {Text Source: Wikipedia.org}
