Get involved! You can support us by posting as often as you can about our campaign, our work, and our message of autism awareness, acceptance, and inclusion--and use the following hashtags:

#AsIAm  #InclusionMatters  #DoYouKnowAutism

#KnowAutismFoundation  #GivingTuesday


An “UNSELFIE” (or “unselfish selfie”) is one of the trends that emerged with #GivingTuesday. All you have to do is take a “selfie” and post it with a caption and the hashtag #UNselfie to explain how or why you are giving on #GivingTuesday.

You can print out and use any of our “UNSELFIE” templates in your photo and decorate them or fill them out however you want. Use these pages to express yourself, celebrate what makes you unique, or share a positive message about acceptance and inclusion.

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. Everyone has something to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, etc. While #GivingTuesday is celebrated on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, the campaigns can be much longer than one day.

This year, KNOWAutism is using #GivingTuesday to help kick off our #AsIAm campaign, promoting autism awareness, acceptance, and inclusion!​  The core principle behind "As I Am"  is about accepting, including, and valuing everyone for who they are, as they are.
