About

Youth with autism constantly experience barriers to experiencing the enjoyment of so many activities that the rest of us take for granted. Their abilities are overlooked and their capacity underestimated. The barriers they face are often more a result of the environment in which they live rather than a factor of their ability to participate.

On behalf of the NuPurpose, I would like to invite you to volunteer at our annual B.LU.E awards ceremony. B.L.U.E Awards celebrates achievements of children diagnosed with autism& other special needs. The day brings joy to families as we celebrate their child’s success. My beloved son Tiger inspired the B.L.U.E awards because as you know children with special needs are often misunderstood, and mistreated.

Your attendance to this event means tremendous support and will positively touch many lives. We would be honored if you would accept this invitation to join us for this event.
