We had a successful first GIVING DAY. Thank you for all your support. As you know on GIVING DAY we donate 10% of our sales to the cause of the month. Our hope is to touch lives across the country.
April is Autism Awareness month. CDC estimates 1 to 1.2 million children have been diagnosed with autism in the United States. So this month we picked The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism for our GIVING DAY.
With a 4 star charity navigator rating, Doug Flutie foundation helps families affected with autism live life to the fullest. They have helped increase awareness of autism and the acceptance of people with autism. Their grant programs help families with financial assistance for their autistic child in 6 northeast states - (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire & Maine). For almost 20 years they have been tirelessly making a difference in the lives of children and families dealing with autism. We salute their efforts and applaud the work they have done.
Shop more on April 14th, so we can give more to The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Austim and help them continue to support beautiful and precious children.
Thank you for being our partner and believing in us.

Please help us get the word out. Together we can give the ‘Doug Fluite, Jr. Foundation for Autism’ the support it needs to help people with autism get access to care; lead more active lifestyles and grow towards adult independence.
The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc. was established in 1998 by former NFL quarterback Doug Flutie and his wife, Laurie, in honor of their son, Doug, Jr. who was diagnosed with autism at the age of three.
Through their General Grants, Joeys Fund, Allison Keller Technology fund and other programs and initiatives, The Flutie Foundation awards grants to individuals and families dealing with the challenges of autism as well as to the organizations that support them. The grants that they provide give individuals with autism access to much needed educational and other support services, autism specific active lifestyles programs and assistance with transitioning to adult independence. In addition The Flutie Foundation, through their grant programs, awards grants to nonprofit organizations that provide direct services such as family support, education, advocacy and recreational opportunities for individuals with autism.
On March 10th, two days after International Women’s day, HPFY donated 10% of the day’s sales to Women’s Center of Danbury. Since 1975, WCD has been a safe haven as the sole provider of services to victims of domestic and sexual violence in the Northern Fairfield and Southern Litchfield County areas.
