I came up with the idea for Paper Clouds Apparel while visiting my mother in Northern California. My mother was a bus driver for special needs children and she had a little girl on her route who would draw the whole ride to school. Often she would give these drawings to my mother. I happened to be home visiting and saw one of her drawings hanging on my mothers fridge. I was fascinated by it ! I spent the whole night looking at it. I woke up the next morning with the idea of putting that art on a shirt and using money from the sales of our shirts to help give special needs schools the funding they need to be able to get all the tools they need to help these amazing individuals.
Dear Friends, I need your help today with an urgent matter. As you may know, a few years ago, the State of Arizona passed a Bill that approved Insurance coverage for the behavioral treatment of Autism. This bill was one of the first passed and it has already changed the lives of numerous families and children. Today, the Arizona House of Reps repealed the Bill. Of course this came as a great shock to our families and we are very concerned that it will also produce a precedent for other States who have or are in the process of passing similar insurance bills.
