You Voted - Now Wear Your Shirt for Autism Proudly

Arms Around Autism T-shirt results

A few weeks ago we held a fun contest with our social media/online fans where we provided three different t-shirt designs and let you choose the
winner.  Risky?  Perhaps.  Did it pay off?  You bet.  I can honestly say those who voted did a bang up job for Children’s Care in choosing the best t-shirt design for our upcoming 2nd Annual Arms Around Autism Event on April 25.  Leading the poll with 53% of the overall vote, Design #3 was the winning choice.  Poor Design #2 didn’t even stand a chance!


So, here are our winning t-shirt designs and a description to our methods.  Our adults sizes will feature a black background with the logo as shown:

The Winning Design

Our youth sizes will feature a bright green background with the same design.  Why neon green you say?  Well, if you have a child with autism, the ability to properly communicate can be a struggle.  And in the blink of an eye, this child can get lost or separated easily enough.  The bright color  provides a stark contrast to what most other people might be wearing and makes it much easier to spot the child.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our poll and helped pick the winners.  We have enough t-shirts for a few lucky folks, so send us a comment and then we can touch base with you via email to get your shipping information.  Let us know what you think of our contest or other suggestions you would have to promote autism awareness.  We want to hear from you!

"Children's Care Hospital & School was the lifeline our family needed when we realized nothing else was working successfully for our daughter, who has Angelman Syndrome. The consistent daily structure has been essential to helping her get control of her behaviors and therefore be pleased with herself. The staff is all about our daughter and helping her to be the best she can be."
