The Canadian National Autism Foundation was formed in June 2000, by parents of children with autism.
Foundation Goals
The objectives of the Canadian National Autism Foundation are charitable. The Canadian National Autism Foundation has been formed to provide funding for:
* Educating the general public and professionals
Educating others is very important to CNAF, much of the general public is unaware of autism and how it affects ones behavior. Each child/adult with autism is very different from one another and often have different triggers.
* Providing information and resources to families of people with autism
* Providing funding for Canadian based research and development
* Promoting national autism awareness

Lilikin Industries Give away “Eleven” toy

The product of a sudden flash of brain lightning, Lilikin and his hangers-on were born in 2-D in the summer of 2009, and soon took corporeal form in multiple experimental iterations. Their creator, Kimberley Cleland, is a seasoned (read: jaded) toy designer with 10 years of industry drudgery and a lifetime of compulsive DIY-ness keeping her awake at night.

Following an unexpectedly successful run at Montreal indie craft fairs selling hand-made versions of the Friends to babies, kids, grown-ups, hipsters, nerds, weirdos, salsa-dancers and robots, Kimberley decided to take it to the next level, and Lilikin Industries was born.

And the masses are in love with Lilikin, Mollycoddle and Eleven. Adults buy them for themselves or as gifts for their young-at-heart friends. Parents buy them for their school-age children. One family of three young sisters pooled their allowances to lock Mollycoddle into an elaborate shared custody arrangement. And very many have become shower gifts for babies-on-the-way.


This is about the toy

Not to brag or anything, but Eleven was vegan before it was a thing. He’s not just healthy. He IS health. He leaves a trail of it behind him on his walk home from the farmers’ market. You can smell it in the air when he wooshes past you on his vintage fixie. Sure, it’s a little more complicated, but it’s worth it. Just look at the results: that’s one svelte monkey.


18″ from head to toe, approximately 1 lb. All branding materials are printed on recycled post-consumer waste paper with vegetable-based inks. Stuffed with polyester fiber and recycled polyethylene pellets for a heavy, droopy body that can be gently posed. Tail is elasticized and curly. Conforms to international standards for infants toys concerning construction and materials. Suitable for babies, babes and crybabies aged 0+.



To purchase this toy or others please go to  http://www.lilikinandfriends.com/pages/shop/Autism_Awareness_Special_Editions
