Wear It For Autism – Win Tickets

wearitforautismWear it For Autism is a fashion show with a difference. All the models taking part have, in some way, been affected by Autism – and all the profits will go towards improving the lives of others with the condition. This is a cause I naturally feel really strongly about supporting as I have a child with Autism and I see that families affected by Autism are not always given the full support that is needed, especially as the children get older.

The event will be held on 10th Sept in Soho London and is organised by Anna Kennedy Online, a charity supporting UK families affected by Autism.

Each person taking part in the event had been nominated earlier this year by a friend or family member and chosen by the judging panel, which included presenter Gail Porter, actress Adele Silva and the Principal of Pineapple Performing Arts Covent Garden, Maggie Paterson, for their dedication and selflessness.

The winners will be split into five categories; mums, dads, carers, children with autism and adults with autism. They will all be treated to a head-to-toe makeover before hitting the stage. Guests will also be treated to a variety of entertainment, including acts from the hugely successful Autism’s Got Talent show.

Anna Kennedy said: “The idea behind Wear It For Autism was to spoil those who usually
never get a chance to treat – or even think of – themselves. Living with autism can be
challenging and extremely demanding, so we wanted to create a special event that will be fun for all involved, as well as raise vital funds to campaign for the rights of those with this disability.”

 

Tickets – which include entry to the event and a goody bag – cost £25 and are available at

  1. My younger brother is autistic. He faces so many challenges on an everyday basis just simply trying to understand the people around him and make himself understood in turn. Every meal has to be seperatly prepared due to associated intolerances to gluten and dairy which creates so much extra work for my mum. Although it’s classed as a disability i prefer to view it as a personality type. Pretty much all the men in my family exhibit symptoms of being on “the spectrum” (yet the medical profession says it’s not hereditary, ha!) including my other brother who is diagnosed with Aspergers. It has resulted in a unique and cliquey family sense of humour which i wouldn’t change for the world. My biggest peeve is other peoples reactions when we are out in public and he gets excited and “flaps”, he tries so hard to hold it in but why should he have to? Why can’t people be more understanding and more aware of this condition? He’s turning 18 next month and i’m so proud of who he is, funny, intelligent, insightful and direct. Qualities which unfortunately a lot of people seem to lack, maybe if they took the time to listen they would learn a thing or two!
