Congratulations Antony and his mom Jessica Leroux for winning a Snug Vest!
Back in June 2013, we launched our Snug Vest giveaway contest. Over 50 entrants answered the question, "Why do you, your child, or your client need a Snug Vest, and how will they benefit from it?". There were Many interesting responses that demonstrate the diverse need for Snug Vest and Deep Pressure Therapy. You can check out the dozens of responses here: Snug Vest Contest
The winner needed to accumulate the most Facebook 'likes'. Jessica Leroux, the mother of Antony, a 4.5 year old boy who has ADHD and a Sensory Processing Disorder, worked hard to accumulate over 250 likes for her 4-year-old son. And ultimately, they won the vest!
Here is Jessica's winning answer that accumulated the most 'likes' on Facebook: " The Snug Vest would be for my 4.5 year old son Antony. He has severe ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder). He requires a lot of deep pressure and weight for him to feel good and concentrate, and bring him to a safe level. Your Sung Vest would provide so much benefit to Antony as well as our family. He uses a weighted pressure vest at school but he gets made fun of and stands out because of the look of the vest, but with your beautiful design, Antony would feel a lot happier and "normal" waring it. Also being able to control the pressure in the vest would be an amazing for him he currently has issues with that with his current vest provided by the school. Thank you for your consideration."
Just after Jessica found out that she and her son the won the Snug Vest, Jessica said: "Thank you again! we're on top of the world... actually my whole family and community is. I've had people stop me in stores saying congrats and asking about the vest- everyone can't wait to see him in it " -Jessica
We are incredibly happy to hear of all the community support they have been receiving.
Shortly After, when Antony's Snug Vest arrived, he wore it shopping the same day. Here is what his mom had to say about their new shopping experience at Walmart:
"Thank you snug vest! What an amazing product! Antony is able to put the vest on unassisted, and pump-up and deflate it himself. He loves to pump it up! For the first time ever we had no problems when shopping in Walmart and it was all because he was wearing the Snug Vest! We have been able to successfully stop 5 out of 7 meltdowns due to the Snug Vest and calm him safely just by putting the vest on and inflating it! We've also prevented plenty more meltdowns just having him wear the vest throughout the day, especially during stressful moments. I highly recommend this vest to anyone! I wish we had it sooner. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Jessica Leroux"
More updates to come on how Antony is doing with his new Snug Vest. We are very thrilled that it is helping him and his family!
Congratulations once again, Antony and Jessica!
