Autism Awareness

03 Apr 2012

Yesterday was World Autism Awareness, I think we all know someone that has been affected by Autism.  My nephew has autism and he was the catalyst for designing a new fabric line to bring awareness to Autism.   Pieces of Hope will be released late summer and we're donating a significant portion of the proceeds from the sale of this fabric line to Autism Speaks.

Who do you know that is affected by Autism? Please share. more
