The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What materials are the pajamas made of?

The pajamas are created from two different types of materials the main material is :

100% Egyptian cotton and Polyester: after research and parental surveys this was the least type of thread to cause irritation in the skin, easier to wash, and comfortable adaptable, and familiar to people with autism

      2. What ethical practices does the company have?

We pride ourselves to be animal cruelty-free, and vegan materials only. Products are all plant-based and not tested on animals.

      3. Why Autism?

In the Black and Latino community, mental health and mental disorders are stigmatized. People are unaware that in Autism there is a spectrum and you can have a range of low functioning to high functioning and in between members of this community. Not all disabilities are visible, therefore we should be educated on them, not cast them aside or away from society. We should be more inclusive and help the world become more accepting of each other.
