To create unity among individuals and organizations to promote Autism Awareness through one international symbol of support. "One cause, One symbol"
Who: Casey designed and has been promoting the My Autism Awareness butterfly symbol since 2008. I believe it has the capacity to unite all supporting individuals and organizations for a single cause to clearly communicate a Global Autism Awareness initiative.
The symbol: The butterfly logo signifies independence, transformation, a sense of natural identity and beauty. It is organically shaped using a color palette of earth tones. The design is balanced between positive and negative space so when it is adhered to a surface it becomes one with its environment, not a separate entity.
Why: By using a single Autism Awareness symbol only associated to the cause will provide strength to every organization and create an identifiable unity among individual supporters.
The ribbon: Through years of research Casey found that people on the spectrum did not support the puzzle piece ribbon. The feedback- "I do not have a disease and I do not need a cure; I need acceptance" EMPOWERMENT! Also, the ribbon is the logo for The National Autism Society Organization.
HOW: Individuals on the Autistic spectrum demonstrate unique talents and gifts that deserve the opportunity to be discovered & developed.
Stickers: All sticker revenue goes 100% back in to the marketing budget to fund more awareness products. This is a self-sustaining budget.
The A+ cause fund: Directly benefits the success of individuals who are on the Autistic Spectrum; by creating unique opportunities through innovative & individualized programs to discover gifts, talents, skills, strengths and passions to channel further career development across various industries. We expose more people to the arts and develop self-management skills in your community to create a successful adult life.
How does it work? Well, all donations go into an account and GROWS, then Organizations all over the country apply for the Grant to set up classes in thier organization.
InventSuccess: My Autism Awareness is a program of InventSuccess, an Oregon non-profit 501 (c) 3 since October 2003. InventSuccess is actively building the bridges necessary to raise our next generation into financially independent, self-sustaining adults who will be contributing members of their communities. InventSuccess was founded on the belief that barriers can become bridges with the right tools and guidance through education, vocational training, innovation and green technology; all key elements to our uniqueness, the success of our students and all who work with us.
We invite you to join our vision, adventure and journey to a fulfilling future.
My Autism Awareness is a global movement, the butterfly is a symbol for the CAUSE not a COMPANY or an ORGANIZATION.
