FuzziBunz is working with Autism Speaks to help research autism! The Big Sky colored diaper has been renamed to Light It Up Blue. For every Light It Up Blue diaper that is sold, FuzziBunz will donate $1 to Autism Speaks.
Tereson Dupuy, the creator of FuzziBunz, has a special place in her heart for Autism Speaks. Tereson’s oldest son, Eden, was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, a form of autism. Here’s what she says about this new partnership:
“I recognize that I am fortunate that FuzziBunz® has afforded me the opportunities to treat and help Eden, but I know not all families are in this position. That's why, in Eden's honor, FuzziBunz® will donate $1 for every "Light It Up Blue" diaper we sell to Autism Speaks, a national advocacy organization dedicated to funding autism-related research and helping families impacted by autism. The diapers are the same price as the all the other FuzziBunz® cloth diapers—so I hope you'll simply add the Light It Up Blue diaper to your stash and know that, by doing so, you're helping families like mine cope with autism and that you're contributing to our nation's plight to find a cure.
“Many of you already know that I founded FuzziBunz® because of Eden. His constant diaper rash wouldn't go away and his doctor told me I had to use cloth diapers only—no more chemical-ridden disposables. At the time there weren't any modern cloth diapering options, so I had to invent one. I credit my special little boy, Eden, with the invention of FuzziBunz®, and now as the inspiration of FuzziBunz's® public support for autism-related organizations. Thank you to Eden and to my entire support system, which includes family, friends, advocacy organizations and now you, our loyal FuzziBunz® fans!”
