#WearTOMS

This board was created to promote Autism awareness. Did you know that 1 in 88 children are born with autism? Out of that number 1 in 54 are boys. The statistic for girls is 1 in 252. Consider donating to Autism United or another great charity that helps fund research for this often misdiagnosed and very misunderstood disorder.

With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.

Sometimes you have all the correct pieces, but they still don't want to fit together. Such is the life of a parent with an autistic child. I have friends who have autistic relatives. My heart goes out to the caregivers who sacrifice so much just to ensure that their loved one has as close to a normal life as possible. #AutismUnited

Life with autism can feel like a Rubix Cube where the sides never, ever match. You keep manipulating the sides, but can never solve the puzzle. Do your part, raise awareness.

I challenge everyone to use an image similar to this for your twitter and Facebook profile pictures for a week to raise awareness about autism.

Which piece of the puzzle represents your experience with autism?

Did you know? Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S. Autism costs the nation $137,000,000,000 per year. Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases. Boys are four times more likely than girls to have autism. There is no medical detection or cure for autism.

Prevalence vs. Private Funding Leukemia: Affects 1 in 1,200 / Funding: $277 million Muscular Dystrophy: Affects 1 in 100,000 / Funding: $162 million Pediatric AIDS: Affects 1 in 300 / Funding: $394 million Juvenile Diabetes: Affects 1 in 500 / Funding: $156 million Autism: Affects 1 in 88 / Funding: $79,000,000

Did you know ... Autism now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys Autism prevalence figures are growing More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined.
