  • Increasing global understanding & acceptance of autism
  • Being a catalyst for research breakthroughs
  • Increasing early-childhood screening & timely interventions
  • Improving the transition to adulthood
  • Ensuring access to reliable information & services throughout the life span

Bags of Support

A donation has been made for every one of our Puzzle Piece Snack Bags


The Kernels Optimism Project is committed to participating in initiatives and  programs that create engagement and real change. We are therefore excited to announce a pledge made to Autism Speaks Canada where donations will be raised through special retail promotions, sponsorship of the Autism Speaks Canada Signature Walk Series and through other unique retail products. Together we can help thousands of families impacted by autism.
