Scentsy lends it's support to Autism Speaks

In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating National Autism Awareness Month since the 1970s. The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community.(
I am not personally affected by anyone with autism in my family, nor do any of my close friends have an autistic child.  Lately though I have been meeting more people that are affected by autism and I'm learning more autism itself.  Autism affects 1 in 110 children, 1 in 70 boys.  I had no idea it was more common in boys than girls. 

I am an independent consultant for Scetnsy &something that I think is pretty great about our company, we support charitble causes!  Scentsy has two catalogs each year and in each of those catalogs we have a charitable warmer for sale where 100% of the net proceeds go to that charity.  The Spring/Summer 2011 catalog is supporting Autism Speaks.

Piece by Piece is the full size Scentsy Warmer that you can purchase to help support Autism.
