The Chamilia “Autism Puzzle Piece” charm
During April 2015, in honor of Autism Awareness Month, Chamilia, a Swarovski Group brand, announced that it will donate five percent of proceeds from its “Autism Puzzle Piece” charm to the Autism Research Institute, the primary organization supporting efforts to understand and treat this condition. The brand became interested in supporting these efforts after learning that in 2012 the Centers for Disease Control announced that autism affects one in 68 people under the age of 21 living in the U.S. This number is an increase from the previously estimated five in 10,000 children reportedly affected by the condition before 1990.
The Chamilia “Autism Puzzle Piece” charm will be available at the brand’s more than 2,000 retail partners worldwide and on the Chamilia website.
