    GIVE A GIFT OF READEEZ. I’ve corresponded with dozens of parents of children with Down syndrome. Many have told me their kids love Readeez songs and videos. They watch the free ones online and wish they could buy the DVDs or downloads. (Parenting a child with special needs frequently entails large medical bills.) You can help out such a family by gifting them some Readeez. I’ll send a Mega Bundle (it sells for $59.99), plus everything at the $25 level, to a child with Down syndrome who likes Readeez. This is a really special gift — if you’re considering getting this reward, please know how grateful the recipient family and I will be.
