**Autism Build-A-Bear**

Thank you to Build A Bear for the chance to review this awesome Autism Awareness Bear it was received and loved immediately!! This super special bear is perfect for a boy or a girl to hug and to love with autism or without. The super cuddly deliciousness comes in blue with the puzzle pieces that correspond to the autism emblem.
The bear is super soft from head to toe..notice the puzzle pieces on both feet and the piece on the chest. The body is super soft just as a bear should be.
LOOK* with every bear you purchase .50c is donated to fund research!! It works if you buy the tee as well(not pictured)

 Each April 2, Autism Speaks celebrates Light It Up Blue along with the international autism community, in commemoration of the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day. Light It Up Blue is a unique global initiative that kicks-off Autism Awareness Month and helps raise awareness about autism. In honor of this historic day, many iconic landmarks, hotels, sporting venues, concert halls, museums, bridges and retail stores are among the hundreds of thousands of homes and communities that take part to Light It Up Blue.
He was so excited to receive this wonderful bear!!
    Chances are Autism has affected your family in one way or another...NO... maybe its someone you know?? Its not curable, nor preventable but it is something many of us parents have learned to work with. Autism does not affect one person it affects the whole family.
     I am impressed by the many businesses that have become involved with the awareness movement and try to open peoples eyes to the differences in people today. I am a mom of 4, I have a 17yr old with multiple disabilities as well autism spectrum disorder and a 6 yr old that falls in the spectrum as well and was a preemie. Do I know what led to the "autism"??NOPE!! Was it something I did or could have prevented??NOPE!! Companies strive to get that message across.

Autism now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys
  • Autism prevalence figures are growing
  • Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
  • Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average
  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases
  • Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism
  • There is no medical detection or cure for autism

  •    Thank you BuildABear for providing me with this wonderful bear* I was under no obligation to write a positive review in exchange for the product, my opinion is my own and I feel that this bear lived up to what we expected.!!
