LesserEvil is thrilled to take our Buy it Forward initiative to the next level. We are announcing a new partnership with Autism Speaks, and will be donating 10% of our profits to help spread their message of Autism Awareness.
“Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.” -Taken from AutismSpeaks.org
It is a disorder that is approaching epidemic level proportion. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its estimate of autism prevalence in the United States to 1 in 88 children (1 in 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls). Autism Speaks is making great strides in getting the word out about this difficult disorder, and LesserEvil is thrilled to be an extension of this initiative.
If you are wondering what you can do to help, a great start would be signing up to Light it Up Blue on World Autism Day, which is Monday, April 2nd.
Autism Speaks, LesserEvil Listens.
