On April 1st SnapPower gathered with many other community members to take part in celebrating autism awareness month. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability that affects both children and their families.
In a society that too often idolizes cookie-cutter-sameness, we can instead make choices to celebrate the positive and unique contributions that individuals with autism make. We can make a difference in their world by fully including them. Choices like these will bring good changes to our culture and promote a new and better perspective of differences in all people. Everyone has value to offer in a community and, just like the rest of us, people with autism deserve to be treated accordingly. What if we all made a change to be more inclusive and understanding? How many smiles could be spread? Talk about something to celebrate!
Watch the following video to see SnapPower’s booth at the Uplifting Celebration for Autism celebration. It’s our second year participating and we wanted to capture our team at the event.
In the video you'll see our SnapPower team hosting a fun game booth at a local event called, "Uplifting Celebration for Autism". This event was organized by the Melisa Nellesen Center for Autism at Utah Valley University.
Last year SnapPower raised over $11,000 in donations from our amazing customers during National Autism Awareness Month. The donations went to The Melisa Nellesen Center for Autism at Utah Valley University. Thanks for being so generous!
We invite you to join us in celebrating Autism Awareness by practicing inclusion and creating an environment of belonging. What can you do to celebrate differences and autism awareness?
