Soft launched their Yearly Giving Program in December 2009, benefiting the Autism Society of America, and the SPD Foundation. We are incredibly proud to donatie a portion of profits to support organizations dedicated to funding research and support, and that are so effective in their ability to reach the millions of families in need of their resources through local chapter outreach.
Autism Awareness Month
Every year, we custom design a product to help spread the message of Autism Awareness. In 2013, our Understand/Support/Love tee, co-designed by an Autism mom and facebook fan, will be for sale on our website as of April 1. 20% of proceeds will suppor the Autism Society of America, and a network of local and national Autism groups, including:
Bi-annually, Soft donates over 250 units of brand new clothing items local New York City non-profits, including Hour Children, an organization that provides support services to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and their families.
Supporting Teachers, Schools and Students
Bi-annually, Soft helps to fund a grant written by teachers, for teachers through the online charity organization DonorsChoose.org. Recently, we helped to fund a grant written by an Occupational Therapist in an inner city school in Massachusetts who needed sensory equipment for her students with Autism.
In December 2009, we donated our Soft Sensory Tees to the entire pre-K class at a local elementary school in Bushwick Brooklyn. At the request of a concerned parent, we donated our sensory tees to children with SPD in the Developmental Preschool Class at Silver First Elementary School in Everett, WA. We have since sponsored more than 400 small special projects related to teachers, therapists, schools and special education. If you have a special project in mind, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have sponsored over 200 events and counting: non-profit events, walks, conferences, individuals, fundraisers, and clothing donations. Some of our latest partners are listed below:
