Handmade Autism Heart Giveaway from Spiritual Taco

As a Special Education teacher, Autism awareness is near and dear to my heart.  Autism now affects 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys.  Autism is one of the fastest growing developmental disorders in the United States.  I'm sure you or someone you know has been affected by Autism.

The Autism Heart from the Etsy shop, Spiritual Taco, is handmade by artist John Barrow from Peru.  As Autism parents themselves, Spiritual Taco created and drafted this unique piece to show their love and acceptance towards Autism.  The eco-friendly heart is made to show multi-colored, interlocking puzzle pieces, which symbolizes the complexity of Autism.

The heart is made from solid wood with a tint made of water based polyurethane finish which allows for a simple yet beautiful wood grain look.  The heart measures 5 3/4 inches wide and 6 inches tall including the base.

Please take a look at Spiritual Taco's blog.  It will give you more insight to another reason this couple began their venture.  It will bring tears to your eyes and open your mind for more awareness.  This family has been selling their Autism hearts to raise money for their son's medical expenses as well as his legal defense against a defective system that is in place to protect our children.  They have a Facebook page where you will find seven episodes on Fox 26 news about their story.

I was stunned by the gorgeous heart sent to me.  It arrived wrapped in a sweet gift bag ready for gift giving. It truly is a jaw-dropping work of art.  I showcase this handmade piece with pride, not only because I work with children with Autism, but because I now support the Spiritual Taco family and their quest for Autism awareness.  Claudia and Christopher, you say you hope to make your son very proud of you someday.  You're doing just that....he is proud of you.

Spiritual Taco donates part of their proceeds to Special Cheers, a non profit organization.  They take rescued horses and rehabilitate them and train them to use with children with special needs.
