I haven't done anything yet.

DS's b-day is today so we've been busy with that. Ironic that he was born in April...

Last year I made a couple dozen ribbon pins, with puzzle piece in the middle, and a card attached. They were beautimus! ;) And took some to work with me and sent some to DS's school.

I have another roll of ribbon I just bought but I haven't done anything with it yet. Guess I better get going!

I usually just change my email signature to my ribbon one.

To me everyday is an opportunity to spread autism awareness. I don't have anything specific planned this year (yet) but last year my online scrapbooking club had an online crop and auction that benefited Autism Speaks. We raised $400. :banana:

My daughter was born in April, too. We are participating in a fundraiser for the Autism Society of Illinois. Part of the proceeds will go to build out a sensory room for my daughter's school. It is an all-you-can-eat/drink shindig with auctions and raffles. I don't know if posting this link is legal, but this is it.
