We couldn’t let April escape us without honoring Autism Awareness month. We were startled by the new statistics that say one in every fifty kids is now on the spectrum.
With numbers that staggering, it starts to feel overwhelming, how can we help so many children and parents that deserve to be spotlighted, recognized and applauded for their journey with Autism? We are happy to shine the light on MighteeKids for this purpose. MighteeKids picks a charity each month to partner with. They create a t-shirt in its honor and by purchasing a MighteeKids tee you in turn donate to the cause. We love their educational approach and teaching tools so that parents can educate their kids about these different issues and causes. You can even subscribe monthly! Their desire is to facilitate a way for kids to build good character and empower them to make a difference in their world — is their a better purpose than that?
This month they have partnered with the Autism Society and wearing their darling shirt is Sammy. You can follow Sammy’s journey with Autism on Instagram at @sueshine.
We’re grateful to MighteeKids for shining the light on these causes month after month, we only wish we had thought of it! Buy their tee here.
