The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

ASP colors the world Autism-OK!

The Autism Society Philippines is celebrating World Autism Awareness Day by shedding the traditional colors the commemoration is associated with; and opening our world to the entire color spectrum! This initiative echoes our call for, not only awareness; but more importantly, acceptance, accommodation and appreciation of persons with autism!


We would like to invite children with autism, families and friends to join us at a collaborative art event aptly called the ASP Color It A-OK! at the Mall of Asia Arena Music Hall on 2 April, Tuesday at 3pm-6pm. We will be a large scale replica of several pages from Summit Books' "Hue Can Do It Manila", illustrated by designer Asa Montenejo. We will be providing CRAYONS; but participants are encouraged to bring their own.

Sign up on Eventbrite via http://bit.ly/asp-colorAOK. Print the ticket; and affix name and signature. Bring a signed ticket to the venue to gain access to the event. The event is FREE; but donations of art supplies are welcome!

Let's make a day of it! ASP Chapters, schools, supporters and families are encouraged to help color the world Autism-OK! As an additional security precaution, please wear the Angels Walk for Autism 2019 shirt or any GREEN top.

The following prizes are at stake for the biggest contingents:

FIRST PRIZE: Kidzania Tickets (16 children, 16 adults)
from Cebu Pacific
SECOND PRIZE: P10,000 gift certificates
from SM Department Store Children and Infant Clothes Section
THIRD PRIZE: P8,000 gift certificates

WANTED: VOLUNTEERS to help distribute art supplies and guide participants at the event. Volunteer must be able to 1) attend volunteer orientation on April 1, Monday, 1pm at the ASP National HQ (http://bit.ly/asp-map2); and 2) go to SM MOA Music Hall by 1pm on April 2, Tue for event prep. If you are able to help, please join this FB Messenger thread and introduce yourself! https://m.me/join/Abaev8WWg0iB3r-9.
