A simple concept. It’s nothing NEW.It stands to reason. It’s perfectly understandable. It’s something we all need to do….MORE OF! Cultivating talents and strengths of the individuals within the Autism community!
Culturally we all love aknowledgments. We celebrate the accomplishments of others. Scrolling through history we see the amazing and notorious characters that have come before us. Notating such glorious behaviors and such dastardly deeds. People are capable of so much…and so little.
So every fall we must realize that a NEW DAY has dawned for Autistic people and the people who LOVE them!!
A SHIFT in the hearts, minds and attitudes of people. The perception of Autistic people and their capabilities is being re-focused. Fine-tuned if you will. Awards events, venues for creating and showcasing ART, books redefining our peoples worth! In 2011 …we have arrived!
On the weekend of September 23rd-25th…we will ENJOY The 2nd Annual Naturally Autistic People AWARDS & CONVENTION!!
The opportunity here is to INCLUDE a group of people that have been widely marginalized. Sadly it seems that this world of “Celebrating Self-Esteem” had previously overlooked the Autistic population.Well that is no longer the case. Our awards celebration is here to stay and we are thrilled about it! I believe society as a whole had been assuming that we as a community had nothing to CELEBRATE.
NOTHING could be further from the truth. Life is worth celebrating no matter your “label”. We have life and while we have that gift we will make the best of it. We too have abundant gifts to share. Simply put this concept is at the crux of cultivating a happy life. Growing and giving the good inside of yourself ~to others. The trick is finding those gifts that each person has to give…focusing on interests and encouraging people to follow where those interests take them! Self esteem~101. It is a simple concept that has been overlooked for far too long. Society is NOW starting to get a small taste of the talent streaming in!
The very best way to SUPPORT this golden opportunity for the Autistic Community is to involve yourselves and…SPONSOR~ SPONSOR~ SPONSOR!! Companies that break ground with this venture are cutting the edge in CULTURE CHANGE!! What better way to support the future’s amazing minds!! Your COMPANY can give as little as the price for 1 ticket – enabling an Autistic adult to attend the AWARDS ! To sponsoring the cost of an actual award (an original handblown glass design) with the aknowledgment of your sponsorship etched right in. There are many ways to SUPPORT US!
We are very excited by the opportunities SPONSORSHIP brings. It says alot about YOU and your Company. Believing in these awards and what they represent is TANGIBLE!! Your dollars at work in the BEST way possible. Helping Autistic PEOPLE contribute to society. People that are alive NOW! Not waiting for what researcher’s come up with years down the road. Living, breathing people. People that desire and DESERVE support now! Show the Autistic community that YOU and the CORPORATIONS of this world believe in the incredible possibilities for their futures !
