We are very pleased to say that we have found a great organization to be working with and to donate money to. It is called Blooming for Autism. They are based out of Florida. Blooming with Autism gives out Grants up to $2000 directly to families to help pay for much needed therapy and learning tools which can make a difference in a child with Autism.
When Aidan was diagnosed with Autism, he was immediately started in therapy. He had all the normal symptoms of Autism. Spinning, no voice, didn't know his name, could not communicate, constantly lining things up, behavioral issues and more. He was diagnosed on the low end of the spectrum and we were told theres no telling how bad it will be.
Over the last 2-3 years he has had therapy on average of 3-5 days a week. He also gets therapy in school as we are lucky enough to live in an area that has one of the best programs for children with autism. I might add we also live in a state where the statistics for a boy having autism is 1 in 29. Aidan is now on the high functioning end of the spectrum and continues to make improvements every day. This would not be possible without therapy, without an iPad, and without some amazing therapists and teachers.
So Blooming with Autism is the perfect organization for us to work with and help them raise money to change the life of a child. Hopefully many lives. You can donate directly to them as well as knowing that every shirt we sell will translate to money being donated to them. Please help us to continue to raise money and awareness and make a difference in a child's life, hopefully many children.
