Autism Ribbon Sale (L)
Always unique, totally interesting, sometimes mysterious
Student Council holds a ribbon sale today in honor of National Autism Awareness Month. Each ribbon costs a dollar. Ribbons are being sold in the student lounge. The money collected is to be donated to Autism Speaks. Wear the ribbon with pride, and show your support.

The puzzle pattern of the ribbon reflects the mystery and complexity of autism. The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of people and families living with this disorder. The brightness of the ribbon signals hope—hope through research and increasing awareness in people like you.
Special baskets of goodies are being raffled off today, as well.
