Autism Awareness Month Puzzle Piece Campaign
Thank you for your interest in participating in our Autism Awareness Month Puzzle Piece Campaign! April is Autism Awareness Month and the perfect time to reach out and support our community. We are so grateful that you want to share our puzzle piece hearts with your clients, coworkers, family, and friends.
The campaign is simple. Just let us know how many puzzle piece hearts you’d like to start out with at your location. For a donation of $1 or more, people can write their names on the heart, and you can display it in your office/business/store/home, etc. during the month of April. If someone donates more than $1, you can either display multiple hearts with their name or write the amount of their donation directly on the heart to display. All of the money from this campaign will go toward social and recreational programs for individuals with Autism in our local communities.
While this campaign can be done at any time of year, we look to showcase it during April in recognition of Autism Awareness Month. At the close of the month, we will schedule a time to meet during the month of May to pick up any donations received. At this time, you can give us any remaining hearts, or you can choose to continue your campaign throughout May as well. Each person or business who participates will be acknowledged on our social media pages, and to the thousands of families who participate in our programs.
We would love to see pictures of your display as it grows, so please send them our way! If you have any questions regarding this initiative, please contact Michele at Miallonardi@nsasa.org or (631) 836-1850.
