Stella & Dot's Autism Awareness Collection and a Giveaway

April is Autism Awareness Month. According to the HollyRod Foundation, autism affects 1 in 88 children, 1 in 54 boysThis is a staggering statistic. 

During the month of April, Stella and Dot LLC will donate 20% of the retail sales price of each item sold in their specially marked "Autism Awareness Collection" to support the HollyRod Foundation, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $10,000. 



The HollyRod Foundation was formed by actress Holly Robinson Peete and her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete. When Holly and Rodney's eldest son RJ was diagnosed with autism, they made it their mission to provide support and resources to families also affected by autism. In 2012, it became a charitable services program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation and is dedicated to providing compassionate care to those living with autism. 

Here are some of my favorites in this collection:

The "Tree of Life" necklace, priced at $69, has a sterling silver disc charm depicting a mighty tree as an elegant reminder to "stay firmly planted, but always reach for the sky" on a sterling silver 16" chain necklace plus a 2" extender.


 The "Bring It" jewelry roll, priced at $39, has a fun striped design on the outside.
 It opens to reveal a roomy microsuede interior on the inside with a wipe-clean lining. 



Thanks to the generosity of my fabulous friend and Stella & Dot stylist Rachel Cairney, one of you will win the Autism Awareness "Spirit" bracelet, valued at $29! 

This bracelet features the rainbow colors of autism awareness in dyed semi-precious beads framed in brilliant metallic nuggets. I love that it is lead and nickel safe and has a sliding knot closure for adjustable length. 

To enter, take a look at the items in their Autism Awareness Collection here, then leave a comment below letting me know your favorite item in the collection. Entries close Tuesday, April 30 at noon EST. Winner will be announced immediately.

  16. It's a tough choice between the Tree of Life necklace and the Spirit Bracelet, I think both are really cute in their own way! I'd love to win this for my sister; she works with children who have Autism and other similar issues, and is a constant inspiration to me because of her love and understanding of them. Thanks for the opportunity!

  18. It would be a blessing and honor to win any of the beautiful things. If I was to say one or the other it would be the tree of life for a surprise for my precious husband. Celebrating 3 years of sobriety and standing strong through so many storms. Last week he and a group kicked off a Celebrate Recovery program at our church and he has worked long days to provide for our family and give his life to this ministry... Stand strong sweetheart you are loved more than you will ever know.....
