This is the second compilation from our fundraising non-profit collective! Our first compilation was about awareness and acceptance but our second is about empowerment, hence our bright red cover and dynamic artwork by the talented Mr. Jason Fox @Graffox Graphics.
The theme of this compilation is empowerment, to make people feel unafraid of a diagnosis or being labeled autistic and to help them feel a sense of empowerment, a sense of pride in their neurodivergence and most importantly, confidence in themselves and their unique worldview and place in society.
100% of our proceeds go to great causes that empower people on the Spectrum as well as promote and celebrate their neurodiversity! Those causes are:
- a nonprofit dedicated to developing networks of support for neurodivergent people and helping them through the social networks of video games!
Nonpareil Institute (npitx.org
) - An institute founded by a dad that trains autistics for jobs in the technology sector that also raises funds through live casts and their own game studio with autistic students.
- an organization that celebrates autism and helps young autistic adults find empowerment by giving hem skills and workshops to find jobs that will further empower them.
