What do World Autism Day, Ralph Lauren & Sir Elton John have in common?

I have been overwhelmed by the kind words and support from Blog Land re my little "breakdown" blog I wrote about my gorgeous son Harry. I have had such an amazing outpouring of empathy and information shared with me regarding other mother's experiences with Autism and it has been so uplifting and just a huge weight of my shoulders knowing I am not alone. You know there is so much goodness and compassion out there in the world and it helps to re-affirm my faith in humanity.

Anyway Tomorrow is World Autism Day and Ralph Lauren has teamed up with Autism Spectrum Australia (ASPECT) and will donate 10% of all profits made tomorrow Saturday the 2nd to ASPECT.
It is a day for awareness for this affliction which can occur in any child regardless of race, financial situation or gender.
And I am sad to say my invite to The Yellow Brick Road Benefit Dinner with Sir Elton John came a little too late and would be a lot too expensive to go to. Darn it!!!! This benefit was also being held in honour of World Autism Day so it is great to see such a growing collective consciousness happening globally.
Now get yourself to Ralph Lauren and spend up big (like we need an excuse!!)

p.s The Ribbon colour is blue so I'll be wearing mine with pride!!!
