In the wake of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that killed thousands and displaced millions in Nepal, we’ve had a few orders for wristbands and awareness bracelets being sold to help raise money. The outreach of love and support for the country has been tremendous and inspiring, but we also want to make sure that donations are used in a way to benefit the ones who need it most. Here are some tips to keep in mind while donating:

  • The Better Business Bureau has a list of tips for making donations, as well as accredited organizations that meet the BBB Charity standards.
  • You can check any charity you’re thinking of giving to on Give.org to make sure the charity you’re thinking of donating to is accredited. You can also look at their report to see how they use their money.
  • NPR has some tips on making sure your aid is most effective as well: they recommend sending money–not used goods–and making sure the organization already has a presence in Nepal.
  • The Huffington Post has a list of charities on the ground providing critical support here.

An estimated one in every 68 children in America has autism. April is Autism Awareness Month, and here’s how you can get involved:

Participate in local events or activities that raise awareness and money for autism research or support families or individuals with autism.

Support initiatives to make your community an autism-friendlier place.

Showing your support for people with autism is another way to get involved. The puzzle is the most common symbol to represent autism awareness. You can also customize your own bracelet or view autism and other awareness bracelets.
