I have an announcement to make...or something

PR for the People – The Daily Grommet’s Citizen’s Gallery

(I started to write a press release, which I don’t know how to do, when I realized this sounded much more like a blog post and should probably be treated as such. Apparently journalists don’t want humor in their press releases. Hmph!)

Last Friday, Toddler Tech USA made it’s bid to become America’s Next Top Grommet. Okay, that’s an exaggeration. But they did apply to the Daily Grommet’s Citizen’s Gallery to be voted as a Daily Grommet.

The Daily Grommet (http://DailyGrommet.com) showcases wonderful products. Products who’s inventors have a story to tell. Products supported by customers instead of corporations. Products like Dapper Snappers.

(And here’s where the whole press release thingy totally derails)

My story is here if you want to read it. It’s just another story of necessity, mothers, and invention. But my story isn’t nearly as important as yours. You see, the night before last I received an email that touched my heart. I was goosebumps head to toe. I may be amazed at the thing my itty bitty idea has turned into. But seriously, emails like this are the reason Dapper Snappers are still here. This isn’t the first email I’ve received like this, and it won’t be the last. But it touches me in ways I never thought possible. Here…you read it:

I bought these belts for my son. He will be 3 yo in February, but due to feeding and absorption issues,  he only weighs 25lbs and has a waist of a 18-month old. Since his height is on track, 18-month old pants are not long enough, so we buy 24-month or 2T and use the Dapper Snapper to bring in the waist.

He is enrolled in our state’s Early Intervention program and sees a dietian every 2 weeks. She was very interested in the belt and commented that a lot of her clients also have issues with clothing sizes and don’t know what to do. I passed along your website to her. She intends to share it with other dietians and clients. Your product would be a great benefit to those in the nutrition services of the Early Intervention programs.

I tell everyone about this product.

Thank you!

Victoria T.

Thank you Victoria. Thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for reminding me that this product really does help people; parents and kids alike.

It’s easy to forget that there are families that struggle with things so much bigger than I could ever imagine. I can’t imagine the struggles parents of special needs kids go though. I’m glad that Dapper Snappers has helped countless families have one less frustration to deal with.

So when it comes down to it, Dapper Snappers are here because of all of you. Without your encouragement and support, this Grommet wannabe wouldn’t be.

So I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the goosebumps head to toe. You all ROCK!
