Fashion for a Cause: Autism Speaks

Jul25

Imagine being unable to express your thoughts and feelings, or being a parent to a child who is unable to communicate their wants and needs. This problem is a reality for thousands of families affected by autism.

For many children with autism, therapeutic technology plays a vital role in developing communication skills. This week your support provides families of children with autism the tools, resources, and therapy to unlock a child’s voice, allowing them to communicate with their family for the first time.

Sevenly partners with one new charity every week and through this Monday, for every single item purchased, $7 will be donated to provide communication therapy to a child affected by autism.

UPDATED TO ADD: Sevenly just received a matching grant up to an additional $50K, so now your $21 purchase will donate $21 to Autism Speaks.

If you are so led, support these families with a purchase, and help provide tools to assist these children to live out loud.

Take a peek at all the amazing options available,and please help spread the word by sharing about this cause on your facebook or pinterest page.

If you are a blogger, consider partnering with Sevenly through their affiliate program – Harnessing the power of social media for social good.

  1. Autism is something that is very near and dear to my heart. Our family does respite care for a family of a 21 year old autistic male. Although I am sure he benefits from being around our family , I can tell you we are definitely blessed to spend that time with him. We are in full support of anything that helps to enhance the life of someone with Autism…I will be posting a link to your blog post today on my own very new personal blog “Everything I Needed to Know I Learned on Pinterest”.
