Gap Casting Call
The search is on for the next faces of babyGap and GapKids. Wouldn't it be amazing if one of those faces represented kids with Down syndrome? Think of the possibilities? There are prizes, but for me, the best prize would be seeing Sophie's beautiful face next to her peers in stores nation-wide.
I was allowed to enter 5 photos, so I sent 3 of Sophia and one each of Alexander and Helena (can't leave her siblings out). So here's what I'm thinking, please take a few minutes and go vote. Then, submit your own kid's photos, especially those with Ds. Let's see if we can show them just how cute our kids are.
Please vote for each of my 5 submissions as they won't combine votes for all 3 of Sophie's photos. You can vote once per day per email address through November 17th. Let me know if you voted and if you submit your own photos so I can vote for you.

Here's more information:
"Gap is excited to announce the launch of its annual Casting Call in partnership with Disney Family.com - a site that provides inspiration and ideas for parents on a variety of topics important to today's families. Gap invites parents nationwide to enter babies (ages four and under) and kids (ages five to 10) into the Casting Call for a chance to be featured in the store windows of babyGap and GapKids in February 2010. Additionally, the winners will receive a VIP experience for four at Disney's THE LION KING in either New York or Las Vegas.
This year, we're also introducing the Fan Favorite, which gives your little stars a chance to win a seven-day/six-night family vacation to either Turks & Caicos or Jamaica from Beaches Resorts - The Luxury Included® Family Vacation.
How it Works:
Entries will be accepted from September 22 - October 22, 2009. Once the entry period closes, a panel of judges will narrow down all of the entries received to 20 finalists (five baby boys, five baby girls, five boys, and five girls). Those finalists will star in a professional Gap photo shoot the week of November 16, 2009. On December 7, 2009, the finalists will be announced on www.gap.com/castingcall and will be voted on by the public until December 21, 2009. The four children who receive the most votes (one from each of the categories) will be announced as the winners on February 1, 2010."
