Part of our mission is to make our loved ones on the autism spectrum feel more special then they already are. One thoughtful way of doing this is include them in their very own birthday club.
As some of us know or many don't know, when it comes to birthday's some of our children on the autism spectrum may get excluded from invites to parties. This may be due in part to their social awkwardness or inablity to communicatate with others who are not on spectrum and may not understand. There may also be instances where no one shows up to their birthday parties due to the same reasons. One way to help bring some cheer to their special day is to send them a specially selected gift and card in celebration of their special day just for them from somewhere they are included. Inclusion is very important.
With your help we can give this gift of love to our loved ones on the spectrum. They will be provided with an age and gender appropriate gift or if possible, a gift of their own choosing along with a birthday card with a very special message of inspiration and encouragement.
The goal is to reach as many as we can. The intial goal amount set here will help us to get started with that reach.
