April is Autism Awareness Month.
There are many great websites with information about this developmental disorder which Time says "One in 110 American children are considered to fall somewhere along the autism spectrum, according to the latest report released by the federal government." You may know someone with autism, as I do, and know the challenges that they and their families face on a daily basis.
A few years ago, someone who works with children and adults with autism commissioned me to make some autism puzzle pins for her organization's store.
I made puzzle pins in all colors, shapes and sizes, and hand painted Autism on them. Unfortunately due to an illness she had to close her shop. This month, I'm giving away 20 of my handmade autism pins which are made from a white, kiln fired clay, glazed and fired a second time.
They have retailed for $6.00 - $12.00. If you're interested, or know an organization would like them, please just leave a comment below. I will be announcing the winner/s Friday, April 22nd.
