The United Nations declared the first official World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, 2008. This was a global awareness effort to heighten the awareness about the disorder that affects millions of people and their families. This brain disorder inhibits a persons ability to communicate and form social relationships and has behavioral challenges along with it. 1 in 110 children in the US are affected by this disease.
Here at FancyScrubs.com we wanted to help a local organization near and dear to our heart - the Extraordinary Child. This New England group is a non-profit organization which will provide a supportive and nurturing environment for children with and without disabilities and their families to engage in safe, fun, therapeutic, and social interaction. This facility is planned to be in Cumberland, RI. It will provide recreational activities for children of all ages with developmental challenges so that they will be able to participate in play experiences and develop their skills as optimally as possible. According to the founder Jennifer Gingras "my goal is to touch the lives of as many children and their families by creating a facility that can accommodate children with special needs of all ages, a facility which would allow any child to play."
So please help them build this unique extraordinary facility for the extraordionary children - purchase any pair of clogs from our website and we will donate $10 from every pair to them during the month of April. We have over a 100 pairs to choose from in Cape Clogs, Klogs USA and Anywear Clogs. Please share this info with as many people as you can to help this Extraordinary Group raise funds during the month of April!
