Puzzle Ribbon Campaign 2017

2017 PUZZLE RIBBON CAMPAIGN

SPREAD AUTISM AWARENESS IN YOUR SCHOOL!

April is Autism Awareness Month.

Spread Autism Awareness by giving every student and staff member in your school an Autism Awareness ribbon! The Greater Philadelphia Autism Society helps to spread Autism Awareness by providing FREE Autism Puzzle Ribbons to Pennsylvania schools in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties. The Greater Philadelphia Autism Society distributes Autism Awareness Ribbons to help start or compliment awareness activities in schools. Schools may receive the ribbons already assembled or receive the materials to assemble the ribbons. We like to hear about awareness projects! Please share your Autism Awareness pictures, events or projects on our Facebook page ASA Philly. They may be displayed at Autism Society Greater Philadelphia Autism Awareness Day at the Philadelphia Zoo on April 9, 2017.

What is the meaning of the Autism Awareness Puzzle Ribbon?

The puzzle pattern of the Autism Ribbon reflects the mystery and complexity of Autism. The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of the people and families living with autism. The brightness of the ribbon signals hope; hope through research and in the increase of awareness of people like you.
