As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Have a great Marpole Day!

Today we teamed up with Choices Markets, Western Canada’s largest retailer of natural and organic food, and blew bubbles and sold our bubble blowers at their booth at Connecting Marpole Day to help raise autism awareness and funds for Autism Speaks Canada.

Choices Markets partnered up with Autism Speaks Canada and hosted a 12 day “Autism Speaks Puzzle Piece Campaign” in its Greater Vancouver Area stores to raise funds for Autism Speaks Canada. During the campaign, customers could purchase Autism Speaks Canada puzzle pieces in-store at the checkout for $1.00, with all proceeds benefiting the 6th Annual Vancouver Walk Now for Autism Speaks fundraising and awareness event, which takes place on September 29th, 2013 at Stanley Park.

To help raise additional funds, Choices Markets hosted a series of barbeques today at their Vancouver and Kelowna locations, with the exception of their Kerrisdale location, which participated at Connecting Marpole Day in lieu of the barbeque.

Connecting Marpole Day celebrates multicultural, intergenerational, and artistic diversity in the community.

Local musicians and entertainers performed throughout the day and their were some activities for kids, and of course, bubbles!

We’d like to thank Marpole Place Neighbourhood for inviting us into their community! We’d also like to thank Choices Markets for having us and letting us blow bubbles and sell our bubble blowers to promote autism awareness!

Thanks for reading,
