April is Autism Awareness Month!
Are you Autism Aware?
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD's) are developmental disabilities, for which the "umbrella" term is widely recognised as Autism.
Autism Fundraiser Printable Party Invitation by The Digi Dame Party Shoppe
While Autism is becoming better understood, the cause is still unknown, and there is currently no cure. Further research and community awareness is very much needed to help families affected by this disorder.
Want to help?
You can fundraise for your local Autism charity organisation, or help to fund further research programs. By doing so, you will also help to raise awareness in your local community.
There are many options and benefits for donating. You could raise enough funds for an ASD child to receive an assistance dog, or for a family to go on a holiday, that they would otherwise go without. You could fund a support group for a year, or an iPad for a needy child.
April 2nd is World Autism Day, and April is Autism Awareness Month. Why not invite all of your family and friends to a fundraising party?
April is almost here, so you may want to get your fundraiser plans underway. To help with that, we've got some inspiration for you, created some new products and you can sample these with a FREE download! Let's get started!
Blue is the colour that is commonly used to represent autism. The Go Blue for Autism campaign is a very quick and easy way for the community to get involved. You could simply hold a "blue" event!
Some ideas include:
ask guests to wear something blue
ask for a gold coin donation or entry fee
serve cupcakes with blue icing
make blue cocktails or mocktails
use blue party decorations
auction off blue items
It's a Puzzle
The autism symbol is widely recognised as the jigsaw puzzle piece. You may opt to use that as a basis for your fundraiser theme. Common colours used are dark blue, bright blue, yellow and red, as shown below.
However, you are not limited to this colour scheme - your guests will love your creativity if you prefer to do it all your own way!
Some ideas for a puzzle theme include:
serving puzzle-shaped cookies and sandwiches
punch out puzzle-shaped paper for confetti decorations
decorate with colour-coordinated balloons
serve drinks with puzzle-shaped ice cubes coloured with food colouring
wear autism awareness attire
use clip art to create DIY party decorations
Make your party decorations an easy job with Party Printables by The Digi Dame Party Shoppe.
