CostumeWorks LLC and the National Autism Association today announced the launch of a fundraising program to benefit families affected by autism. In line with its corporate mission to be a strong, proactive community partner, CostumeWorks, an internet retailer of costumes, decorations, and party supplies, has committed to donate 25% of all net profits to the National Autism Association generated from sales throughout the Halloween season and remainder of 2010.
“CostumeWorks was founded with the mission to build a business that was not only profitable but socially responsible,”
The National Autism Association, or NAA, is a parent-founded, parent-run non-profit organization that has been serving the autism community since 2003. In addition to educating, empowering, and advocating for families affected by autism and other neurological disorders, the NAA funds scientific research, enables the Helping Hand grant program that helps families in need pay for treatment and services for children diagnosed with autism, and funds the FOUND program to make tracking systems more widely available to individuals with autism who are at risk of wandering.
“Families touched by autism face many difficulties, which are often magnified by the disability,”
To participate in the program, simply purchase a costume, decoration, or party item from CostumeWorks between now and the end of 2010. Details about the program, the National Autism Association, and CostumeWorks are available online at http://www.costumeworks.com.
