TOMS shoes donate shoes to children in third world countries who otherwise would be forced to go without. Now TOMS has partnered with AutismUnited to spread awareness about this disorder and help those families who are already dealing with it! I decided to base my board on Autism United's logo of puzzle pieces. Autism is described by some as having all of he pieces just not necessarily in the right places. I found different ways to incorporate the symbol into spreading awareness.

People underestimate children who suffer from autism, but this brave group put on a live musical!

Through TOMS creating awareness we can help the world "step" into understanding, which is the first "step" towards healing!

Here is an example of incorporating the puzzle piece into something other than your wardrobe! Imagine the interest that will be peaked when your family or friends see this in you home!

How great are these necklaces? Aside from the puzzle piece form giving homage to Autism Awareness. The way they fit together can be seen as a metaphor for all of us coming together to support the families of autistic children!

Here is a slightly unconventional way to show support, but it just goes to show that anyone from any walk of life can help spread awareness!

These special addition Autism United shoes would be sure to grab attention for the cause!

The symbol for Autism United are the puzzle pieces. They describe autism as having all of the pieces but not necessarily having them in the right place. These earrings would make a great conversation starter to spread awareness!
