I got the idea because my brother, J.R., has autism.
These are the steps we took:

We decided on making fuzzy hair pencil toppers.
Here are some of the results:
I sold 75 pencils and raised $75.00.
These are the people who volunteered with me:
One of the coolest things that happened during my project was:
The kids were excited to buy my pencils. This made me very happy and I was able to talk about autism awareness.
One of the most important things I learned was:
I learned that its important to let other kids know even though autistic kids are different they are just as important and deserve respect.
