Life is better in these shirts…
I am a huge fan of the brand Life is Good…so when I found out they released special edition Autism Awareness t-shirts, I was super excited. The Life is Good community shares one simple, unifying mission: to spread the power of optimism. I love this idea…I wish we all felt like that in this world!
Life is Good donates 10% of annual net profits (including from the new Autism Awareness t-shirts) to the Life is Good Kids Foundation, which works with thousands of childcare providers supporting kids of all types of challenges. The Autism Awareness t-shirts are now available on www.lifeisgood.com (adult sizes $24, kids sizes $18). Get yours today! And remember, LIFE IS GOOD (whether you buy a shirt or not!).
Live a colorful life! Check out these fun bracelets.
Pura Vida Bracelets are simple, unique, hand-made bracelets that have a great story behind them — both from a humanistic standpoint as well as a right-place-at-the-right-time-with-the-right-idea-for-a-business that boomed with success. You can check out their website to read more, but know this: each original bracelet is handmade in Costa Rica and every bracelet purchased helps provide full-time jobs for local artisans in Costa Rica…and that’s pretty awesome!
Pura Vida supports over 175 charity partners with cause-designed bracelets with more than $877,000 in donations to-date. Most of the “cause” bracelets retail for $5 with $1 of the sale going to the specific charity. And though I ordered several for Autism Awareness Month, I purchased awareness bracelets for Multiple Sclerosis (supporting ME!) and Breast Cancer (supporting Christina!). The phrase “Pura Vida” (pu·ra vi·da) means “pure life” in Spanish. Enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune and not taking anything for granted embodies the Pura Vida Lifestyle.

You know you want to smell good…why not support autism awareness at the same time? Two birds, one stone!
NEST Fragrances (Blue Garden Collection) is supporting The Child Mind Institute in the form of a grant from Autism Speaks generated by sales of the Blue Garden Collection during the month of April. The Child Mind Institute is an independent nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families affected by mental health and learning disorders.
The Blue Garden Collection was created to support Autism Speaks in 2010 and has blossomed into one of the brand’s most beloved scents. Blue Garden blends blue hydrangea, hyacinth, and forget-me-nots with fresh green notes and a dew drop accord and is available in luxury scented candles in three sizes, a reed diffuser, liquid soap and hand lotion (prices vary). Check select stores or visit www.Bloomingdales.com.
I am sure there are a ton of other great products out there supporting very worthy causes. I found my way to these three and wanted to share what makes them so gosh-darn-awesome!
