)-- Lindsay Casten, owner of Mama Bracelets, LLC based in Naperville, IL has designed a bracelet to help raise funds to support a Naperville based non-for-profit organization that provides assistance to kids and adults diagnosed with Autism.
Little Friends is a private, non-profit organization serving children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. Based in Naperville, Illinois, Little Friends operates 11 dynamic programs including three alternative schools, family support and consultation services, vocational training programs, community-based residential services and the Little Friends Center for Autism. Founded in 1965, Little Friends serves more than 800 people each year throughout DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Will, McHenry and western Cook counties.
Mama Bracelets has partnered with a team affiliated with "Step Up for Autism" and is raising money for that team (Team Dailey Method). In addition to providing advertising for the event, Mama Bracelets has offered to carry their "Autism Awareness" on their website, donating 30% of all profits generated from the bracelet directly to Team Dailey Method. Mama Bracelets owner and her family will also attend the walk.
Mama Bracelets has supported other causes, including Rett Syndrome Research Trust and Team M/The American SIDS Institute.
"We feel it's important to show our support for those who need help. Anything we can do is our pleasure," says Mama Bracelets' PR Director, Michael Casten, "not only are we able to donate some money to the cause at hand, we also know that anyone who buys a 'Support & Fundraiser' bracelet from us will have a constant reminder of the good they have done. We're looking forward to the walk!"
The Autism Awareness Bracelet currently sells for $28 and can be found at www.mamabracelets.com on their "Support and Fundraising Bracelets" page.
The Naperville "Step Up for Autism" walk will be held on June 26, 2011.
