Coming in April 2018: Inside Out For Autism

Join thousands of Canadians on April 3rd
(or anytime in April) by wearing your shirt inside out for the day.

Inside Out For Autism is the only national fundraiser for autism taking place right across Canada.

Funds raised will stay within the provinces and territories.

We are asking schools, companies, sports teams and more to register their April event online and raise funds and awareness in a way that works and matters to them. It could be a car wash, a toonie drive, or a casual day – the options are endless. Then, turn your shirt inside out and join in the fun! Learn more and register today.
