ADRIANNA LABEL Will Donate to the Autistic Community as Part of April Autism Acceptance & Awareness
This month we are eager to share we are working with a cause that hits close to home. We will be donating 10% of each purchase to the Autism Research Institute from April 20-May 20. We have coordinated this with the Spring collection drop we're adding to, but any purchase from any collection will contribute to the cause in this period.

The amount of families affected by an autistic family member has grown dramatically over the years. Autism is not easily defined or explained as an illness. The "spectrum" is a common term used in describing an individual because it does in fact seem like a variation of factors, characteristics, and intensity that differs for each person that is affected. The term can be looked down upon when describing someone, so the chart below shows a better understanding of where this person is as far as terms of physical expression, physical ability, and communication skills.
We aim to increase curiosity on the topic and have people educate themselves on Autism, even if it means learning to pay attention to their own mental health. We are happy to support and encourage awareness through our channel for Autism. We will continue keeping up with The Autism Research Institutes monthly developments.
