Autism Awareness

We have a new challenge up at The TownScrapper, and to celebrate Autism Awareness Month, it’s PUZZLE-THEMED. So, anything puzzly will work, as long as it’s fairly obvious that it’s puzzly. meaning, we aren’t looking at your projects with puzzled looks on our faces. 🙂

So, this is how it will work. For EVERY CARD submitted, including those from the Scrapettes, Leah the Orange is donating a dollar to the Kennedy Krieger Institute. And, Scrapettes  Kim S. Katie, Zoe, Ann and Maria have generously offered to MATCH each dollar Leah donates! Your card equals SIX DOLLARS!
Here’s a little blurb from the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s website:


An internationally recognized institution, Kennedy Krieger provides research, treatment, education and community programs for more than 14,000 children annually. We believe that early identification, intervention, and treatment of disabilities are key to maximizing potential and preventing major problems throughout a child’s life. We are dedicated to understanding, unlocking, and overcoming the problems and injuries that affect a child’s developing brain and nervous system.

Unlike other institutions that concentrate on one specific area, ours is an interdisciplinary approach that brings together the expertise of a team of professionals from various fields and departments to create treatment plans tailored to the special needs of each child.

Visit Kennedy Krieger Institute’s main website to learn more about our research, patient care, education, and community programs.

So, click on over to The Townscrapper blog, and see what the Scrapettes have come up with this week, to inspire you to do your part to help these very worthy causes.

There’s even more….you could win a couple of newly released stamps designed by artist, Victoria Case.  Here’s a peek:

Aren’t they adorable? I think so.
