Most of our longtime readers know that as a mother of a child impacted by autism, FuzziBunz’s CEO, Tereson Dupuy, is committed to helping others who are also impacted by autism. With Autism Awareness Month (in April) on the horizon, Dupuy is proud to announce that her modern cloth diapering company has raised more than $13,000 for Autism Speaks™ to date.
Through the “Light It Up Blue” cloth diaper campaign, which launched in June 2011, Dupuy pledged to donate $1 to Autism Speaks™ for every “Light It Up Blue” FuzziBunz cloth diaper sold. Since making that pledge, she says her fans have “showed up” to support the cause.
To further support autism awareness, we are also hosting a “Light Pinterest Up Blue” Pinterest contest and invite friends, fans and customers to “Pin” images of your babies in our “Light It Up Blue” FuzziBunz cloth diaper or alternatively showing your support for autism in any way that’s personally meaningful.
Autism is a very personal cause to Dupuy, as her son, Eden, was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder, in 2006 when he was just 8 years old. With the help of the medical community and support from friends and family, Dupuy says she believes her son has been able to overcome many obstacles along the way.
Dupuy will continue to donate $1 to Autism Speaks™ for every Light It Up Blue FuzziBunz cloth diaper sold through December 31, 2012.
The FuzziBunz® “Light It Up Blue” cloth diaper comes in both the one-size “Elite” cloth diaper, which adjusts to fit babies from 7-30+ pounds, and the “Perfect-Size” cloth diaper, which comes in sizes x-small through x-large. Light It Up Blue FuzziBunz are available for $13.95-$18.95 (Perfect Size) and $19.95 (Elite One-Size) at a variety stores on- and off-line worldwide.
