On April 25, 2012– The Gem Project will give away, through a special gifting ceremony, our autism quilt portait. The autism quilt portrait’s pieces were made in 2008, when the statistics were 1 in 150. Two years later when the quilt was built, the statistics became 1 in 110 children would be affected by autism. Today (2012), according to the Center of Disease Control, it’s now 1 in 88.
The special gifting ceremony will take place from 2-4 PM at Rutgers School of Public Affairs and Administration in Newark, NJ. To RSVP or sign-up as a community partner, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. She will need your full-name, number, and address.
Our quilt was in the winter 2012 issue of Rutgers Magazine.
