The AU-some April Autism Awareness Initiative

April is Autism Awareness Month. 
1 in 68. We all know someone affected by autism. 
I am an advocate for AU-someness, awareness and for acceptance. 

I, along with a stellar group of small businesses, have teamed up to create a Glittery Goodness Initiative. Throughout the month of April, we are all offering an autism awareness related product for sale. We hope to spread awareness throughout the month and we are giving back-the Glittery Way. We will all be donating 10 percent of our sales of these very special products to a beautiful and noble non-profit cause.

With great honor, we will be making our donation to the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism. The goal of the Flutie Foundation is to help families affected by autism to live life to the fullest. 
Doug Flutie was an amazing professional NFL football player for many years. He and his wife started a family and had a beautiful son- Doug Jr. who was diagnosed with autism at a young age. The Fluties started their extraordinary foundation in honor of their son. They do so much for so many-a family affected by autism doing so much to help ease the burden of other families and to spread joy. Noble, indeed.

Please visit and support the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation and read about all of the astounding, kind and generous ways they give back. 

And please visit these shops that have so graciously created products that would be fantastic for Autism walks, gifts for kids, parents, teachers and therapists and everything offered is AUsome for spreading awareness. These products are all made with love and simply shine. 

As always, I thank you for your support and sparkle. Life is short and unpredictable. Do nice things when you can. 

Shine on.
