Slice founder TJ Scimone's son, Alex, lives with autism and all its associated challenges and opportunities. As such, Slice has a unique relationship to autism and a profound interest in promoting acceptance and funding for research. In fact, Slice was conceived in part as a way to support Alex's growth and care over the years. Watch this short clip to learn more about Alex, TJ and Slice.
April is also Autism Awareness Month. There is a movement to start calling it Autism Acceptance Month, which highlights acceptance as a positive action that everyone can take. Now is the ideal time to learn about autism research, people with autism, and where funding for autism goes. Here are a few of our favorite web resources.
To support funding for autism, Slice donates one percent of corporate worldwide sales to autism research. Our main benefactor is the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Clinic at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, California. Learn more about the Stanford Autism Center by browsing their website.
In the month of April, we encourage you to give what you can to support autism acceptance by donating to autism research. We'll start off the giving by kicking in $1,000, and we'll match the next $1,000 of your donations. Our goal is to send the good Dr. Harden and team $3,000 by April 30th, with your help!
