Having a child with disabilities is not something that is easy to deal with, I know. That’s why when it comes to amazing causes, we always step in and join up. Starting today until February 19th over 70 London Drug locations in both BC and Alberta will be selling puzzled necklaces.
The puzzled necklace is to bring awareness to Autism Spectrum Disorder. Founded by three moms with children who are on the spectrum, Patricia James, Debbie Siu and Keri Kennet, joined forces after Autism affected their boys. I am in awe of these women for doing this.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental condition that impacts typical brain growth. As a spectrum disorder, ASD has a wide variation in how it affects each individual person. Common characteristics include difficulties with communication and social interactions, repetitive interests and activities, and stereotypical motor behaviors.
The puzzle necklace is sterling silver and costs $25.00 plus tax. All proceeds from the sale of each necklace goes toward the new Pacific Autism Family Center (FAFC) which is the first of its kind in North America, aided to help families deal with ASD.
This is a great cause and only available for a short period of time.
