Do you know Alissa from Planet of the Apels? She posts regularly about her sweet nephew who also has special needs. Right now there's a chance for the little guy to win a special needs bike. It's easy to vote, just a click.

And here's Alissa's post that I saw announcing it: http://theapels.blogspot.com/2014/03/please-vote-to-help-emerson-win-special.html
