2016 Autism Awareness Tees

World Autism Awareness Day is April 2nd. Last week I shared my thoughts about autism awareness, what awareness in action means to me, and our newest t-shirt design.

Counting on Hope began as a way to help with our family’s expenses. My husband and I desire to do all that we can within our means to help our son, Camden, be as healthy as possible. We adore him just as he is, while continually raising the bar to help him be his very best. Especially when the boys were younger, I wore a lot of autism tees. I wasn’t willing to stop getting out and about, and the shirts were an attempt to wave my white flag for understanding when Camden was struggling. Instead of buying other people’s shirts, I decided to put my own together. Up until now, I’ve kept a surplus of inventory. This approach hasn’t really benefited our family in the fund-raising department, which is why I am moving over to a pre-order format (think Sevenly).

We are offering FOUR designs for our Autism Awareness pre-order. And guess what??? They are available all the way from youth small to an adult 3XL!! The deadline to order is 11:59PM on Sunday, March 13. Orders will ship on March 23. preoder final


This green V-neck is our newest design. Click here to find it on Etsy.
Green AU teeI’ve had lots of requests for a V-neck design, and I finally listened. This tee honors both of my boys. Autism shows a glimpse into Camden, and the green reflects my little guy, Carson, who was born on St. Paddy’s Day. Green is his favorite color. =) This shirt runs true to size. It’s 50% polyester and 50% cotton jersey knit. In this picture, my husband is wearing the large and I am wearing the medium:

The color is called Heathered navy, but everyone calls it grey. Here are some folks in the Different Not Less tee:

BBall SS RaglanIt’s 100% ring-spun cotton. Light-weight shirt with a grey torso and navy sleeves. Please note that this shirt tends to run a size large on women. I am typically a medium, but wear a small in this. Most women find this to be true, but it’s up to you to check the size chart to see what would work for you.
