The drive behind born anxious
So today I set up a regular payment to SNAAP charity and will go next week to meet them all to put names to faces and introduce myself , SNAAP are an amazing charity based in my home town that have a team of fundraisers, which I have joined ,born anxious will be donating a percentage of sales to SNAAP which feels good , we now donate to
The Kent Autistic trust
All charities that depend on donations,All putting back into the Autism community , they are all local which I’m a firm believer that the smaller circles do connect to the bigger ones eventually , to invest in the awareness of disabilities in your own area is everything as this is the environment in which you will exist in , which is exactly what I set out to do and so far we are on track and we are soon to make our third donation already
I’m going to add the link to my story which is the drive behind born anxious and where it all began.
ive avoided blogging too much about born anxious and how proud I am of it, but we have now launched the website and have been receiving such great feedback 💙💙💙
My very own hero 🌟
Heres a snip from my opening post 💙
Born Anxious was inspired by my son Oscar who faces the difficulties of clothes, labels etc. every day.
Oscar was given the diagnosis of autism, global delay, and absence epilepsy at the age of 18 months old. Alongside that, he is also pre-verbal and can display unpredictable behaviors and reactions to the world surrounding him, which becomes difficult within a community that may not understand that he needs a wider birth than others.
After his diagnosis, I have been around many children who have disabilities and autism, whilst noticing that their parents and caregivers have learned they all have there very own traits and needs just like Oscar.
This gave me inspiration towards Born Anxious and what I could do for children, parents, and caregivers like myself. I had been juggling around some ideas, considering organic material I could use, introducing no labels, but also generic designs that could hold a message to benefit our children and the people around them.
Born Anxious is solely my idea. As an autism mum and general advocate of the supporting differences, I wanted to create products that would not only help my son but also donate towards the very people who helped us along the way - The Kent Autistic Trust and Kent Portage Service. I want to be able to give a little something back, whilst continuing to raise awareness of the reality of disabilities and autism in our community.
One day I hope that Oscar will be the spokesperson of Born Anxious once he’s older, to carry on this label that I have built to raise awareness and to help others. Autism is different, it is sometimes rigid in thought and we should all continue to support this with love and an open mind.
Born Anxious has two purposes, to be kind to skin and to spread awareness in our community. 💙
thankyou all for the support so far I’m not sure who’s driving this, but she knows where she’s going 💙
