The mission behind Punks for Autism is pretty simple – make merch that people would wear and donate the proceeds to charities. Punks for Autism has supported charities like Surfer’s Healing, Best Day Foundation, Madison House Autism Foundation and much more in the past, and has a pretty great line of merch that you can check out here.
So who's behind Punks for Autism? A father and his son.
"As the father of a 7 yr old autistic son, I’d often see various generic apparel supporting autism that either looked like something you’d get for free for participating in a race or something your grandma would rock… not that we all don’t love our grandmas, just not necessarily their attire.
"Coming from the punk & hardcore scene, I knew that by working together and supporting each other, we can achieve great things for all.
"Punks for Autism was created as collaboration with super talented artists of all backgrounds to create underground apparel for this generation that helps drive Autism Awareness & Acceptance. 100% of all proceeds are donated to spread support to various local & national Autistic organizations.
"Fight the good fight! Support Punks for Autism and help spread the PMA for Autism!"
