I used to work with autistic students for a few years as well as students with other handicaps. I love those children so much and they have always inspired me with their creativity. I have raised awareness a few years ago at Tradewinds Elementary by making Puzzle Pins for the teachers to wear and show their support. I would like to continue doing this for April 2009. I will be working on these pins and getting pictures up of them as soon as possible to have them all ready for Autism Awareness Month in April 2009. I am donating 100% of the proceeds from these pins to Autism Speaks. (www.autismspeaks.org) Show your support by ordering one of these adorable handmade pins today. I will make a list of the people who have bought and post the links to your shop/business if applicable.
