Why Autumn Cares
Improving Lives, One Ball Gag at Time!
With every product you purchase, Autumn Boutique will help a person in need by donating to charity. We believe in giving back and helping to make the world a better place. Not just some days, but every single day.
With every specially marked product you purchase, 100% of the purchase price is donated to that specific charity. If you want to help fund Autism research, you can place an order for this product and 100% of the price of that product is donated to Autism Speaks. It's the same with many other products too. Visit our Autumn Cares Charities page to see which charities you can support directly and click to go to that charity's page to see what product you get for your donation.
As special needs parents, we know firsthand what it’s like to struggle and at times to feel hopeless and helpless. True strength comes out of doing more and being more. Whenever I have felt that I had nothing left to give, I reflected upon the many gifts in my life and those were not fortunate enough to have the simplest things I took for granted. My gifts included: clean water, access to medical care, special needs therapy for my children, shoes for my feet, a loving husband and a bed to sleep in…the list goes on and on. Yes, I was given difficulties but I was also given many blessing in life.
At my darkest hours, counting my blessings helped me tremendously and made me fully committed to help make the world a better place in any way I could, by not only volunteering for charity organizations but by donating and financially supporting good works.
With your help, we can create a better world together. It takes a village to raise a child but it also takes a social movement to uplift, support and care for those in need.
In the last year, my husband and I have helped build special needs playgrounds, volunteered at a youth shelter, installed flooring for a free medical clinic, cooked and served meals for charity, advocated for LGBT rights, donated blood and volunteered for special needs child care for parent’s respite. This along with three special needs international adoptions from developing countries and also caring for our other children including a biological daughter with Autism, takes a great amount of commitment. And yet, no matter how much we do, there is always more charity work that needs to be done.
I’m continually humbled by others I see who do amazing things such as volunteering for a year in a hospital in India, opening LGBT support centers, humanitarian missions in developing countries and the list goes on and on. For those of you who give so generously of yourselves, I am forever grateful and humbled by your generosity and fullness of spirit. *curtsies with deep respect*
I urge you to join with us and generously support charities not just with your purchase but to volunteer and give of yourself as well. When we are in service to others, is when we truly find that source of all things beautiful and amazing in life. Giving back is truly what makes life worth giving.
This is why I’ve devoted my life to providing a safe, comfortable and loving place for all who enter (granted they are 18+!). Sub-Shop was always about creating a loving environment to showcase sexuality and sensuality in the most beautiful, positive and loving light.
Sex is an important part of life. It’s how we connect. How we play. How we love. But it is also how we express ourselves. Sensual self-expression is a celebration of life, love and fulfillment. By supporting the Autumn Cares program and helping us to give back with every single purchase, you support not only your sensual fantasies as you create a magical sensual world of play, lust and sexual magic with your partner but you also help to make the world a better place. (And not just because you are whistling at your desk the next morning either…. )
It’s because you are supporting a social movement that gives back and believes in the fulfillment of living the absolute best life possible.
Thank you for helping to support others and make the world a better place, one ball gag at a time.
