Support Autism Awareness with Charity T-Shirts for a Cause
FEATURED CHARITY: Autism Society of America
Whether you’re an adult with autism or the parent of a child on the spectrum, it can be hard to meet like-minded friends, deal with schools and workplaces, and find kind, empathetic therapists and doctors. That’s where the Autism Society of America comes into play.
For more than 50 years, this organization has fought tirelessly to make sure that people with autism are treated with dignity. One of the few nonprofits of its kind that has people with autism on its board of directors, the Autism Society helps families in every state while also banging the drum for laws that protect the rights of people on the spectrum. Through PR campaigns that boost acceptance of people with autism, the Autism Society busts its hump for a world in which everyone can enjoy fantastic quality of life.
"Want to help power the Autism Society’s mission? Shop our graphic tee store or design a custom autism awareness t-shirt. Either way, when you choose “donate to the Autism Society of America” during checkout, 5% of your purchase funds its wonderful work!
Did you know that more than 3.5 million Americans live life on the autism spectrum? While bias against people with autism is slowly going away, there’s still a lot that needs to be done. For instance, only 1 in 5 people with autism have a job, and 2 out of 3 children with autism report they’ve been bullied.
The good news is, you can change this! After all, a few decades ago, autism awareness was much lower than it is now. Working alongside nonprofit organizations and activists, you can increase acceptance of people with autism. Here’s how:
Shop Certantees’ Charity T-Shirt Designs
Whenever you buy a playful graphic tee from Certantees, 5% of the purchase price goes directly to a charity that advocates for people with autism.
Create a Custom Design for Autism Awareness T-shirts
Upload your own thoughtful design for an autism awareness shirt to spread autism awareness wherever you go—inspiring others in your community to care about this cause! This is a great option and does double duty for your cause: advocating and raising awareness while donating part of the proceeds to autism charities.
Advocate for Fair Hiring Policies
Talk to your boss about your company’s hiring policies. Does the HR department make a real effort to recruit people with special needs? Do they use equitable hiring practices, such as giving candidates work sample tests instead of judging them on their personalities?
