I feel that fundraising is an excellent way to give back to our community and local organizations. I always try to donate gift certificates or gift baskets to local groups for various fundraising events.
For me fundraising isn’t only about donating money to great causes and organizations that need it but it is about raising awareness, learning and teaching people about things that affect our lives that they wouldn’t otherwise know about.
April is Autism Awareness Month. Raising awareness about Autism is a cause that is very dear to me because my 8 year old son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 4.
Live Pure Products & Spa has teamed up once again with Bobby-Jo’s Pins n’ Needles for our 3rd Annual Community Autism Awareness Fundraiser!
We have chosen the Casey foundation as our benefactor again this year. The Casey foundation is a volunteer run charity. The funds donated stay in Saskatchewan helping Saskatchewan families. Please lean more about the Casey Foundation for Autism Support Inc. at www.thecaseyfoundation.org
This year’s lineup of great locally handmade products that we have available are: Live Pure's 100% natural lip balms, Bobby-jo’s Pins n’ Needles hand crafted Key chains, lanyards, and new this year Autism = Awesomism T-shirts and window decals. 30% of all net profits will be donated to The Casey Foundation. You may view and purchase all of the items for sale for this fundraiser @ http://www.livepureproducts.com/collections/autism-awareness-items or by visiting the spa, we have all of the items for sale and on display there as well.
We are looking forward to another successful fundraiser again this year! As our fundraiser expands to more communities each year we are able to see the awareness spreading too!
Thank you to Bobby-Jo for all of your great work with this fundraiser and to all of the schools and communities involved.
