World Autism Awareness Week will be taking place on April 2nd - 8th 2016. We continue to support WAAW and Onesie Wednesday campaigns all over the country, most recently Surrey Care Council.
We donated 15 Onesies to help raise money and awareness for The National Autistic Society. The day was a success with bake sales taking place along with wearing their onesies to work.
Our support continues as we're offering you 10% off Create-your-Own Onesies for Onesie Wednesday with ONESIE10.
We're also donating 10% off each sale that uses ONESIE10 to The National Autistic Society.
This year, Onesie Wednesday is all about Pinks and Purples!
Children with autism may experience sensory challenges particular with clothing.
With the option to Create-your-Own, you can design your onesie for maximum comfort, from back zips, to detachable feet - our hanging loops are even made from silky soft ribbon to avoid irritation.
Not only do we offer a wide range of colour choices, but we also offer a selection of different thicknesses (which are great for Autistic children's senses). From light and breathable Cotton Jersey, 95% Organic Cotton, and our super soft and snuggly Cuddle Fleece, you can request a sample pack to see our fabrics before you order.
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know which fabrics you'd like to see and the address to send them too.
Using our Online Onesie Builder, you can Create- your-Own Onesie for Onesie Wednesday. Mix and match colours, patterns and thicknesses.
You can even let us know any special requirements in the order instructions box at the checkout.
Theresa Thompson left us a lovely review on our Facebook after her son, who has from Autism, designed his very own onesie;
Good news! Every pound donated to the Christian Aid Christmas appeal will be doubled by the UK Government, meaning double the difference for people living in poverty.
With your help Christian Aid can make every £1=£2, so the programme will award double commission on single donations made between the 17th November and 17th December 2014!

In the lead up to Easter, we want to update you on two new developments on the Christian Aid affiliate programme.
Nets Now campaign
We’re pleased to say that due to its success, we will be extending our Nets Now campaign - as a longer term element of our programme.
This is supported by frequent offline activity on outdoor media including trains, tubes and motorway rest stops - so there is already a level of awareness in the wider public about this. If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget that you can find the Nets Now banners in the creative library.
This year, our Easter appeal seeks to help 900,000 people who have been displaced as a result of the recent conflict in South Sudan. Around spring and Easter, South Sudan experiences a heavy rainy season. This increases the risk of diseases such as malaria and cholera, particularly among pregnant women and children.
We are asking for Easter gifts to help provide families with an emergency survival kit containing a mosquito net, plastic sheeting, water containers and cooking utensils. Find out more about the campaign here.
To support the campaign you can find new banner pools and text links in the creative library:
