child in autism awareness tee shirt I’ve just been introduced to an interesting little company called Five Humans. Besides having a great name going for them, they’ve got a great mission statement, the “self appointed task of curing ignorance through hip, fashionable clothing.

Basically, Five Humans creates high-quality t-shirts that help you to raise awareness for a cause that’s important to you and your family — like the plight of autistic children, or cancer, diabetes, asthma, heart disease…

Cool Mom Picks says it best:

“When there’s a cause near and dear to my heart, I have no problems letting my child’s chest be a billboard for raising awareness.”

No kid? No worries — T-shirts from Five Humans come in adult sizes, so grown-up men and women can be useful and fashionable billboards for a good cause, too.

autism t-shirt graphicAutism, apparently, is the fastest growing developmental disorder in the US (and I’d suspect that there’s a similar stat for other first-world countries). Who knew?

Yet, most of us do know someone whose life is affected in some way by autism — or at the very least have heard news stories of low-income parents who can’t afford the special training and early intervention that’s needed for autistic children. There is no cure for autism, but that doesn’t mean there’s no hope: as cause-related t-shirts serve to remind us, ignorance is a curable disease.

    I was going through your page and really enjoyed it. I thought that you might be a great candidate for a program i’m working on

    I’m contacting you because I work for a word of mouth marketing company based in Toronto. For the program that I am currently working on I’m looking for women that are influential and have blogs like yourself with hopes that you’d be willing to participate in a short survey about our beauty/hygiene products. If you qualify you would be sent some free products for you to try out and review.

    The survey doesn’t take much of your time and id love to get a chance to connect with you and get your valuable feedback!

    Please feel free to email me back at and you can let
    me know if your interested and how best to further contact you.

    Thanks in advance,

    That’s good of you, Paul – thanks for passing on the love. :) Heh, and meanwhile I can see I’m going to be spending far too much time browsing around that darned-tempting t-shirt blog of yours…

    Fashion has a formidable history of influencing public debate, perhaps even subconsciously to a degree, Great post and well done for tracking this site down, I will have to review their work in the next few days and see if I can’t help bring them a little more publicity.
