The puzzle piece is a symbol of Autism. I have a personal connection with kids with Autism, and decided to do a series that would create autism awareness as well as raise funds for those who struggle to pay for treatments, programs, and special schooling for their children with Autism. Each of these pieces features a child who is diagnosed with Autism, and 20% of all proceeds will be donated to the Autism council of Utah to benefit children with Autism.
