Hi everyone!

My name is Nikki.  I was diagnosed with JRA at the age of 10 and OA just a couple months ago at age 29.  I've been through many struggles, as I'm sure you all know.  The ignorance was getting out of control and I just had to do something about it!  So, I created Arthritis Awareness Wear (AAW) to create awareness for ALL forms of arthritis.  I created the website - www.ArthritisAwarenessWear.com - and a gallery on Zazzle to sell arthritis awareness apparel and merchandise (there are links to the store all over the AAW website).  I also create custom wear (not just arthritis related), so send your requests directly to me at Nikki@ArthritisAwarenessWear.com

Please visit AAW today!


I hope to hear from you all soon!  I absolutely love feedback and I really appreciate questions.  The more questions I get, the more certain I am that the awareness is spreading!   ;D

Take care,

Nikki

One of our community members sent this information to us:
A Guide to Autism Awareness Through Wristbands (https://www.wristbandexpress.com/content/a-guide-to-autism-awareness-through-wristbands)

Wristband Express is a company that sells wristbands,
however they offer a nice guide about Autism including links to many current Autism resources. 
They explain the puzzle logo for Autism Awareness that was first designed by the Autism Society. 
They hope that with increased awareness of autism, comes access to appropriate support and services,
allowing those with autism to lead full lives.

Treat people with respect for their common humanity.  How ever you interpret their social standing, treat people as equals.
