We are leading the masses in spreading AUTISM AWARENESS
in a totally unique way...WITH A SPARK OF HUMOR
. As the parent of a 14 year old son affected by autism, I have always taken note of peoples responses to my son while out in public. You know the deal I am sure. He stands out from the "norm" when he talks loud, makes a bee-line for the DVD section, impulsively grabs his beloved skittles on the checkout line, and so on! Never a dull moment, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Our Joey brings so much joy to our family.
We hope our tees bring a smile to your face. Each one stems from a situation or event that we experienced on our crazy ride on the autism roller coaster, and each story is within the tees description. The "it's ok to be different" tee evolved from a series of comical holiday gatherings with some people who still just don't "get it", but it's ok! We now have this tee to rock and remind them that IT'S OK TO BE DIFFERENT! Another force behind this tee was a conversation between Joey and his aide about not wanting to play in the snow with his siblings...it's ok to be different!
SO GRAB YOUR TEE, JOIN THE MOVEMENT, AND LIGHT THE WAY! Help us to help others see that autism isn't a tragedy. Let's give them a spark of humor to help them see that our loved ones are people too. People who know how to laugh, smile, and impact the world in positive ways just like anyone else.
A portion of all sales are donated to Project Lifesaver. Unlike other notable organizations donations made to Project Lifesaver go DIRECTLY to funding their services (not to administrative salaries!). The benefits of this organization are endless, I could go on forever! But...you can learn more about Project Lifesaver by going to www.projectlifesaver.org.
