Passion For Fashion : Autism Awareness :

Wednesday, April 2nd was Autism Awareness Day and earlier this week I shared a little about how Memphis is doing since being back home (long story short, he was hospitalized Monday-Friday from November to February at a renown children's psychiatric hospital).

Last year, during the 4th installment of Passion For Fashion, I shared a post about Fashion For A Cause and totally rocked my "Different Not Less" tee from Sevenly.


I'm just days away from the end of my 100 Day Spending Ban, but I had to support the cause and ordered this Live Loud for Autism racerback tank.  I just love, love, love being able to support a cause that is so close to our hearts.  Having a kid on the spectrum has been one of the most difficult but rewarding experiences and he has taught us all so much!  This week, $7 of each purchase goes towards this cause.


Did you participate in Autism Awareness Day activities?  We wore blue (per the Light It Up Blue campaign) and attended a local fundraising event!

  1. Whoa! It's 12:30 here but just linked up. I loved your post the other day about Memphis's improvement. Man, I bet that was so great to see that a his Mom. You are a fabulous woman, Lena and I am sure your family thinks so. It would be so difficult to send him off, but you did it and ...it paid off. Most things that require sacrifices are well worth it. ♥

  2. Lena, I love your T-Shirt today and the other one you featured. Both are beautiful, for great causes and with strong, powerful messages.

  3. I just found out that Temple Grandin will be at a conference in my area next month. As a teacher of Autistic Support, I'm really hoping my district will approve me to go!

  4. I'm an autistic woman, but I see, for me, no reason to celebrate it.
    Maybe it would be different if I lived in the U.S. (?)

  5. These shirts ROCK! I'm on a bit of a stinky spending ban myself.. Even if I don't sometimes follow it either.

  6. So glad Memphis is back home and doing well. You are one of the few bloggers I can think of who writes candidly about personal experiences with autism. Please consider joining my Light It Up Blue link-up for Autism Awareness: http://notjustbrides.blogspot.com/2014/04/light-it-up-blue.html
